Life Coaching for the
Emotionally Detached

Specializing in Chronic Stress & Alexithymia

Life Coaching for the Emotionally detached will help reduce stress by reconnecting you to your body, mind, and spirit.  Chronic stress adds to your emotional numbness, emptiness, and anxiety.   


Webster’s Dictionary tells us that

Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. 

Stress activates your Central Nervous System, also known as the CNS, and was once necessary for survival! 

Your brain cannot perceive between a real or imagined stressor and is always seeking survival in every situation.  Whether being chased by a bear or fighting with your partner, your brain sees this as a danger and activates the CNS. 

The Stress Response

When stress is present, your CNS is activated.  When your CNS is turned on, regardless of why your

  • Heart rate speeds up
  • Blood pressure increases
  • Respiration quickens
  • Adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol hormones are released into your bloodstream
  • Blood flow is routed away from digestion and directed towards the arms & legs to make fight or flight possible
  • And your digestion shuts down

A stressful situation could be a thought process.  You can be causing stress on your body simply by worrying about something.  Worry turns on your CNS, and your body goes through all those physiological changes every time: Heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, adrenaline, cortisol, and fight or flight.

Chronic Stress

Why is it important to know this information?

  Stress serves a positive function, but chronic stress is detrimental. 

When you consider stress a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances, if you are moving through each day with your CNS consistently turned on, your mind, body, and spirit will experience detrimental harm over time.


People who experience chronic stress, even if they don’t feel stressed, may have a diagnosis of Alexithymia.  

People who chronically stuff their emotions down or push them aside in honor of someone else’s experience eventually experience emotional numbness and emotionally detached and end up feeling emotionally disconnected from themselves and others.

Many of my clients experience a loss of physical feeling or a heightened experience of pain.  Their bodies are slow to heal, and their doctors can find nothing wrong when they express their symptoms.
