Coach Burton provides the support clients need to achieve and maintain a solid foundation in trauma recovery, grief and loss, and sobriety coaching, including daily expert companionship.
"Trauma is not an illness to be cured by a doctor .... ultimately people must be able to take responsibility for their own recovery and for the meaning that they give to their experiences." (What Doesn't Kill Us, Stephen Joseph, Ph.D.)
Coach Burton helps clients to explore the impact of trauma, grief, and loss by exploring four aspects of self: body; intellect; emotion; and, spirit. He helps clients create a plan for restoring safety and empowerment; establish a road map for healing - a process for accomplishing intentional stages of recovery from trauma, grief, or loss over time; learn to move painful physical sensations out of the body; acquire skills to feel and express feelings and overcome feelings of powerlessness, shame and guilt, and distrust; reawaken human connection by cultivating reciprocal, respectful relationships; re-establish a normal routine and meaningful activities through work and volunteerism; discover the healing power of reconnecting to self through nature, mindfulness, and meditation; and, to avoid repeating past mistakes or patterns that may no longer serve them.
