Wendy West is an intercultural holistic health coach specializing in issues related to career, relationships, marriage, cancer, chronic illness, and grief. Wendy advocates mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance as the basis of stress reduction and wellness. Combining her education in Depth Psychology, Integrative Health, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine with her unique cross cultural experiences, Wendy appreciates how people from different backgrounds (economic, religious, social, ethnic, educational and cultural) act, communicate and perceive the world. Wendy believes that people are intrinsically the same and through collaboration she becomes a witness to increased self-awareness and subsequent self-care which empowers clients to make whatever changes they desire. Wendy offers the optional use of Flower Essences that serve as a catalyst in the shift to awareness, empowerment and wholeness. Having experienced chronic health issues and breast cancer, Wendy appreciates also working with clients who have “health opportunities”, helping them navigate their journey.
The Healers West vision is to inspire and empower clients to become their True Self through obtaining mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance, in turn creating wholeness and meaning in their lives.
Healers West promotes health coaching as an integral part of preventative medicine with Wendy providing safety as an unbiased, loving, non-judgmental, ego-free witness, using active listening and reframing techniques. Clients discover and ignite their innate healing potential and the realization that one’s journey through life’s challenges can be understood as a unique opportunity for healing as opposed to a focus on curing. Wendy’s sessions often include stress management and self-awareness techniques such as Guided Imagery, Creative Visualization, Meditation, Non-Violent Communication and Journaling as part of her integrative approach to Health Coaching. Wendy’s ultimate goal is to empower every individual to become their own health coach.
