About Mark Vecchio
I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), as well as an ADD Coach Academy Associate Certified Coach. I have been coaching for over twenty years, helping people create their own freedom through self-directed, embodied engagement. I specialize in working with adults and young adults (16 and up) on the following issues:
- Improving self-regulation of thoughts, feelings, impulses, energy, attention, and motivation
- Making sense of and managing ADHD in all aspects of life
- Breaking through creative blocks and flourishing artistically
- Exploring and deepening spirituality
Somatic Coaching is especially effective for executive functioning. Difficulties with attention and motivation manifest as a disorganization of (1) thoughts, (2) feelings, and (3) physical action. Each of these three goes its own way. Thoughts become distracted, daydreamy, or hyperfocused. Feelings become agitated, overwhelming, and disconnected. Actions go rogue: impulsivity, procrastination, “wasting time.”
Somatic Experiencing (SE) engages your brain, your heart, and the rest of your body in conscious conversation with each other. SE employs awareness of physical sensation (the language of the body) to help you renegotiate patterns that have become “stuck.” Fundamentally, SE brings body and mind into harmony. You become able to harness and guide your attention without having to force it. You gain access to your feelings, and develop the internal space to feel them as a gentle stream instead of as an overwhelming flood. You reconnect with your motivation. You create and sustain your own successful experiences. When life strategies arise, they arise organically—and powerfully—from within you.
Somatic Coaching is not something you have done to you; rather, we work together as equal partners, with full understanding of what we are doing and how it works every step of the way.
I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, so I understand the symptoms from the inside and know what it takes to cope with and heal them.
