I'm Joanne Fisher and I'm passionate about helping families to thrive through all the changes and struggles that life brings them. Our early childhood experiences program us for the rest of our lives. We carry on unhealthy generational patterns to the next generation unless we decide to become conscious of them and break the cycle. Our past experiences stay active and continue to trigger us. Our partners and children are the best at pushing our buttons and making us aware of where we struggle within. Stress has a major impact on our ability to be present, to connect, to have joy... BodyTalk is stress reduction. Creating communication within the body where it was lost or where we were unable to listen to its cries for attention. Every symptom has an underlying message, old experiences that were pushed under the surface asking to be resolved. Your child's issues around sleep are expressions of needs that need to be met. As an Infant Sleep Educator, I'm here to tell you babies wake at night for good reasons- for comfort and to ensure close proximity. Our need for physical comfort and attachment is essential for life. I'm here to help you find balance between those needs and your own needs for sleep. Stress floods us with cortisol and negatively impacts our brain and physical health. Sleep is supposed to bring us out of stress mode not create more. I'm here to help with sleep or anything else your family may face- be it conflict, physical symptoms, depression/anxiety, trouble transitioning into new experiences (new siblings, schools, jobs, teams etc).. Getting to the root cause of any issues from in-utero to elderly.
