Health and Wellness Coaching
Professional Resilience Coaching
What Forward-Facing ® Means to Poy:
Personally, the Forward-Facing ® approach has given me something that years of rehab and therapy was not able to, the ability to be comfortable with my own body, the felt sense of safety that I was longing for a very long time and the ability to be alone with my thoughts.
This had vastly improved the quality of my life and my practice. The Forward-Facing ® Approach not only helps my clients with trauma toxic stress and history of adversities but also those who wants more in life. Forward-Facing ® brought us Home.
