"Follow your genius closely enough, and it will not fail to show you a fresh prospect every hour" Henri David Thoreau, Walden
What is Ascendant Coaching? Ascendant Coaching is a holistic approach encompassing all aspects involved in our Well-Being: health, work, relationships, family, lifestyle, fitness, creativity. It draws from a variety of approaches used depending on the needs and preferences of each person and empowers you to take practical steps for positive results immediately.
Wherever you are on the spectrum of pain, discomfort, or failure, don’t be discouraged, it’s simply a signal to shift and reroute! Ascendant Coaching is not a magic cure-all, but it can make the difference between dealing with a lifetime of painfully limiting patterns and being in the driver seat of your life! This life empowerment allows you to fully enjoy your own beautiful and meaningful journey. Ascendant Coaching powerfully addresses these areas:
I support people going through a life transition who are ready to get to their next level. Over the years, I‘ve especially worked with: - Professionals who are longing for a more fulfilling life in & outside of work, as well as reclaiming ease in their body. - Pregnant women or women dealing with fertility issues. - People who aspire to harmonious communication and deeper connection in their personal and professional relationships. - People who wish to develop their creativity, in whichever area inspires them. - People who find themselves blocked on their life path.
1) Co-Active Coaching The CTI® coaching philosophy holds that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole — completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. As a trained Co-Active Coach®, my approach is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. It is important to note that this process does not involve therapy, expertise, or consulting. 2) HeartMath Coaching The Heartmath® approach is a powerful yet gentle type of guided meditation backed up by the science of the heart: indeed research has demonstrated that different patterns of heart activity have distinct effects on cognitive and emotional function. These patterns may also facilitate dramatic stress reduction. By learning to change our heart rhythm pattern we can create physiological coherence: a scientifically measurable state characterized by increased order and harmony in our mind, emotions and body. This approach is about accessing practical intuition to help bring clarity to big or small decisions. It is extremely effective to help you move from depleting emotions to renewing emotions and create positive transformative outcomes.
Why is Heart Rate Variability Important? “Scientists and physicians consider Heart Rate Variability to be an important indicator of health and fitness. As a marker of physiological resilience and behavioral flexibility, it reflects our ability to adapt effectively to stress and environmental demands (...). Heart Rate Variability is also a marker of biological aging (...). Although the age-related decline in Heart Rate Variability is a natural process, having abnormally low Heart Rate Variability for one’s age group is associated with increased risk of future health problems and premature mortality. Low Heart Rate Variability is also observed in individuals with a wide range of diseases and disorders. By reducing stress-induced wear and tear on the nervous system and facilitating the body’s natural regenerative processes, regular practice of HeartMath coherence-building techniques can help restore low Heart Rate Variability to healthy values.“ - The Science of HeartMath 3) Alchemical Hypnosis “Alchemical Hypnosis is about helping clients find the inner healing resources within the subconscious mind and teaching them to work with these powerful resources to solve their problems. The key to Alchemical Hypnosis lies in its ability to heal our deepest wounds and, unlike other forms of hypnosis, it works with all aspects of our being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Alchemical Hypnosis does not render you unconscious, rather it enables you to explore your inner world, and through the gentle guidance of the hypnotist it provides intense and lasting release from adverse physical and emotional conditions.” - Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis Please note that there is no script for this exploration: I will simply create the container for you to uncover your own guidance through your unique journey as it is unfolding. Not a quick fix, it results in effective and practical benefits in everyday life, and most often a deep sense of relief and liberation to come back to one’s true self and freed potential.
How can it help me? Well Being Coaching can be very effective for people who feel stuck, are experiencing emotional or physical pain or just need to develop new habits and adjust to a more healthy lifestyle. It can help you get to the next level in any area of life, open a new path, attain more peace and harmony within yourself. How does it work? Powerful questioning is used to uncover blindspots and obstacles to your goals. Together we will create a unique strategy to most effectively overcome these obstacles. We will be drawing from the modalities that are called for in your specific situation: your own unique path to well-being! This process allows you to connect deeply with your core desires and priorities. Through this connection, you are naturally motivated to actions that fully engage your potential and a vibrant way of life.
Wherever you find yourself on your life path, you can expect to uncover a whole new level of Well-Being and a foundation for genuine and long lasting happiness!
What is the time commitment? While one session usually provides significant relief, lasting progress starts occurring in a series of sessions. For example, a series of 3 sessions is typically most effective to tackle one particular subject, while 5 sessions are recommended for more complex situations involving multiple dimensions. If you want to address more than one goal, a series of 10 sessions is ideal. We create your specific coaching format through a trusted partnership and ongoing alliance.
Contact me for a sample 30 minute session free of charge and of commitment, meant to support you wherever you are on the spectrum of pain or challenges. We will also identify a strategy that would best serve you going forward. I offer: - One-on-one sessions as well as affordable packages designed for optimal progression. - Workshops for groups in HeartMath® Coaching and SoulCollage®.

Testimonials I have been under Chloe's care for a number of years, getting massage, breath/postural work and nutritional support, and now I have begun well-being coaching. I have made more progress in these few months on changing destructive ingrained patterns of behavior and belief systems than I ever would have thought possible. I credit this progress to Chloe's clarity of purpose and her persistence when dealing with my stubbornness. She is magnificently calm and supportive and will help you make progress on your personal goals. - Kathy Krusen, Moniteur d'Armes, Prevot de Fleuret, Halberstadt Fencers' Club
I was introduced to Chloe La Bare a few months ago, and feel very fortunate to have met her. She guided me through an area of my life that I have been struggling with all of my adulthood. She helped me see the underlying problems and issues that were blocking me and bring them to light. I experienced a dramatic shift and the positive outcome started to manifest within a few days. She is a very talented hypnotherapist and I wholeheartedly recommend her! - Sona Yeznaian, Naturopath. Working with Chloe was so wonderful! Her voice is so soothing and allowed me to sink into the experience so easily. The HeartMath process was so much more than I had anticipated... We did some very deep work in a short period of time that allowed me to find my true heart’s desire (that was not what I thought the session would be about!) and uncover the next steps to get closer to it. I am so grateful! Jacqueline Neuwirth, Life and Relationship Coach
