FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ASK ME A QUESTION
WHAT SERVICE ARE YOU OFFERING?
The service is in the realm of coaching, but it’s more than that… It’s accountability… It’s a support beam… It’s a relationship. What I offer is a safe container for you to vent and explore within. To seek guidance on what you experience as Digital overwhelm and the space to be witnessed as you unpack all the stress encompassing living through a pandemic and beyond. As we begin to relate to one another I will guide you on applying evidence-based strategies to build up your digital resilience and take control over your daily tech usage. This isn’t only about reducing screen time metrics as much as it’s about using technology mindfully. We must cultivate self-awareness if we are to take back our time and attention. The services to be provided by the coach to the client are coaching or email-coaching, as designed jointly with the client. Coaching, which is not advice, therapy or counseling, may address specific personal projects, digital wellness, or general conditions surrounding digital resilience in the client's life or profession.

HOW DO I WORK WITH YOU AS MY DIGITAL RESILIENCE COACH ?
We agree to meet on a one by one or sessions series basis, I send you a contract to sign, then we schedule the time we’ve agreed to meet. Our sessions will last approximately 45 to 60 minutes plus you may send me follow up emails/direct messages during business hours between calls and we assess our time together after the series. While I work to support you in our sessions, I will focus on guiding you in incorporating evidence-based strategies that addressed the challenges and stressors you may bring up in session. If I’m supporting an organization or team of remote workers that the focus is on consensus based agreements and compromise is to establish an open dialogue between team and CEO/executive. The aim is to respect the boundaries of all members wishing to build upon their digital Resilience.
IS “TECH ADDICTION” EVEN A THING ?
To some the term “addiction“ is serious and requires referencing the DSM-V from a strictly clinical perspective. To others, digital overwhelm has by some measure affected everyone across borders, beliefs, and demographics purely because we are all living through this global pandemic and it’s associated transformations... grandparents video chatting their families in place of quality in person time… Employees across all industries suddenly thrust into remote only work from home… Children and teenagers confined to their homes and screens for distance-learning at scale severely affecting social development while becoming heavily dependent on screen time for friendships and gaming to name a few. These scenarios are very real for countless people and it’s imperative that we create the band with parentheses while we’re still surviving through the pandemic and beyond and parentheses to cultivate mindful approaches towards screen and device usage and ultimately increase our capacity for emotional intelligence.
CAN’T CHANGE MY RELATIONSHIP TO TECH RIGHT NOW, IS THERE STILL A WAY WE CAN WORK TOGETHER?
Yes there are many aspects to our relationship with tech that we can address. For example, ergonomics and working from home... mental and physical health... communication and relationships... productivity and zoom fatigue... online privacy and surveillance... cultivating emotional intelligence... how to become more self-aware and engage in immersive offline habits IRL... parenting in a pandemic (I have an almost 6 year old daughter)... how to create space for daily tea rituals as a form of digital resilience... how to slow down. All of these ideas aside, I am keenly interested in what you are curious about.
WHAT IS DIGITAL RESILIENCE?
Digital Resilience refers to the potential state of well-being and stress reduction in direct relationship to technology use. It’s an active journey of experimenting with evidence-based strategies to achieve balance in managing our time and attention. It’s applying emotional intelligence to our technology habits and embracing the reality we are living in where modern life comes into contact with digital everyday and calls for using it mindfully.
