Fancy: What sparked your interest in coaching?
Denay: I have worked in the mental health field for over 15 years. I have my degree in clinical counseling. I found that coaching was more aligned with my moral beliefs. With spiritual life coaching, I am able to use a more holistic approach that helps people connect to who they truly are. I get to guide folks through the process to change, redirect and navigate their life, uncover their desires, take steps towards their goals, achieve their dreams, bust limiting beliefs, and remove roadblocks.
Fancy: You were a mental health advocate before. Was it difficult to transition into coaching?
Denay: It was not difficult at all. Both roles allow me to help people attain their goals.
Fancy: What are some signs that someone may be in need of your services?
Denay: Here are three clear signs that you’re ready to bring spiritual coaching into your life.
- You Feel Lost
When you don’t know who you are or what you want from life, as a spiritual coach, I can help you find your true self. If you can develop a deeper understanding of your place in the universe, you can find a greater sense of meaning. By addressing the negative thoughts and patterns that make your life chaotic and distort your perspective, you can begin to focus on what truly matters to you.
- You Feel Blocked
If you’re not quite lost, but you can’t quite seem to move forward, there might be blocks that are holding you back. Often these blockages are related to old traumas and the patterns, stories and triggers around those traumas. With Denay Nicole Coaching, you can identify those traumas and work through them in a safe way.
- You’re Facing a Big Transition
Changing careers, getting out of a relationship, moving to a new city, or a death in the family—all of these are major life transitions. They can cause chaos and disruption in an otherwise healthy life. That’s because life transitions mean change. They mean we have to let go of what we know and adapt to a new situation.
Fancy: What does it mean to be an empath and how did you discover you are one?
Denay: If you’re an empath, you’re an extremely sensitive person who is in tune with the energy of others and you’re capable of picking up the thoughts and feelings of those around you. Sometimes, empaths are so capable of relating to other people that they take on pain that doesn’t belong to them, which can be exhausting. I knew I had a gift as early as the second or third grade. However, due to religious programming, I would not allow myself to share what I was seeing or sensing. I kept all of my gifts a secret for many, many years until October 2016 when I visited the Whitney Plantation in Louisiana for a tour with my grandmother, mother, and aunt.
During the tour, our guide rang the bell that was used to call the enslaved people to or out of the sugar cane fields. As the guide rang the bell, the vibrations hit me in my chest and then came up through the ground. I could feel the pain of our ancestors that had been absorbed by the land. The pain was so strong that I fell to my knees and just cried. My mother thought I was losing my mind. That’s when I knew I could no longer hide my gifts and I shared with my family what I was going through. By being honest about who I am, the burden that was weighing me down lifted and I felt a sense of relief.
Fancy: How does this affect or enhance your ability to provide your services?
Denay: As an empath, I am able to read energy. It’s a useful tool when a client doesn’t have the words to express themselves or may be fearful of sharing their thoughts or feelings.
