What would it be like to stop judging yourself and step into your potential?
Sweet friend…(Is it ok if I call you that?) – I’ve got a secret to tell you. You have everything you want and crave inside you. It is already there. You don’t need anything special – the right body, the right love, the right job, or the right equipment. You just need to slow down and breathe long enough to find it. To feel it. To believe it.
I’m here to help! I’m Elena Sonnino and I guide perpetually unsatisfied goal setters celebrate what’s going right, tap into the now without judgment, and cultivate self-compassion to step into their potential.
Why would you want to live beyond your perceptions? Well, maybe you don’t. But, so often we have strong stories attached to the past and are so focused on goals and an ideal version of ourselves and the future that we stop seeing and living in the now.
My superpower is to be the mirror that helps you reveal what is already within you so that you can light up your own world. I’ll provide a gentle nudge (or the occasional nurturing shove) to get out of your own way and truly see yourself with kindness and love. My hunch is that on some level you already know you’ve got everything they need inside of you, but maybe you don’t know how to trust those intuitive messages. I help you tap into the NOW so that you can live with more intention and less judgment.
It took me a long time, but I finally realized that my body always has everything I need – if I would just slow down long enough to notice. De-cluttering physically and emotionally, self-compassion, acceptance, and gratitude are the practices that I come back to each and every day. I cannot promise it will be easy, but I’d love for you to join me!
"Elena, I seriously can't thank you enough for such an amazing few months. You've been so supportive and engaging and have REALLY helped me to avoid falling into the funk of negative story telling. I can't wait to continue these practices you taught me as well as keep a journey of gratitude. Talking with you today, as always, has me so excited for the future."Shannon Dell
I have been working with Elena over the past few months and have found her guidance supportive and on target. She has walked beside me through some challenging unresolved emotional breakthroughs and helped me see the bigger (clearer) picture. Elena is very responsive to any questions, concerns, and reflections of mine during the week reminding me of the strategies we have put in place and of new ones, as necessary. I have seen a gentle shift in my overall well-being and emotional stability since working with her and look forward to continuing my journey with Elena as my coach and cheerleader.Steph P.
"After just a couple months of working with Elena, I am seeing significant changes in the way I recognize and approach my thoughts, feelings, and internal struggles. I especially appreciate her skill in gently pushing me to fully work through an issue. Her "turtle steps" have helped me make break down problems and goals into manageable, actionable pieces, and she has given me so many tools to work with!"Shannon Entin
"Working with Elena really allowed me to gain a new perspective on things that would trigger stress or anxiety. I love that her tools are simple to use, quick and extremely effective. Elena is extremely supportive and a top notch listener. Thank you so much for my sessions. I'm so looking forward to having you guide our SwellWomen guests at upcoming retreats."Lulu Agan
