A caregiver coach is someone who provides support to caregivers and helps them navigate the stresses that come with their responsibilities. As a result, caregivers are better able to make informed decisions to meet the challenges of providing care for a loved one.
As a caregiver coach, I am a source of encouragement and will help you:
About Me from a Caregiver Coach Perspective
My name is Tamelynda Lux and I have been a caregiver for many years, first to my grandmother (who died almost a decade ago) and now for aging parents, and a spouse.
I understand from first-hand experience the emotional roller coaster of being a caregiver navigating life at home, the healthcare system, and community resources. Caregiving can feel demanding and very isolating. It’s often a lonely job, frustrating, and exhausting.
You likely know the saying, “put on your oxygen mask first before helping someone first.” With over 30 years of experience, I have invested most of my career in supporting individuals as a life coach and then evolved my private practice to include hypnosis for life issues and concerns, end-of-life support, and grief and bereavement coaching/counseling.
With training and experience in life coaching and caregiver coaching, along with 30+ years of one-on-one and group experience, I have developed a unique approach that is client-focused, listening to your needs and goals to find the key to helping you succeed. I take the time to listen to your concerns and am known for that. Together, you and I will develop a plan for your specific situation so that you can secure the best possible improved situation for you and your loved one. Would it be great to have greater peace of mind, peace in the heart, and perhaps even peace of soul?
As your caregiver coach, I can help you find and put on your oxygen mask first, to empower you so that you can better deal with the ups and downs of caregiving, engage confidently with medical professionals, and help you find time and release guilt for the decisions you are making.
End-of-life choices and medical decisions have complex psychological and social components and consequences; these decisions are often stressful and have a significant impact on suffering and the quality of living and dying. Hypnosis offers a way to move forward with less stress and with a positive impact on the quality of living and dying.
Along with palliative care specialists, critical to end-of-life care, there’s a relatively new approach for supplementing integrative health care the at deserves mentioning: end-of-life hypnosis which encompasses both holistic and clinical aspects.
End-of-life hypnosis offers an exceptionally focused, unique supportive care approach. It can be a powerful complementary therapy for individuals nearing end-of-life and while not a cure for any disease or illness, it addresses the mind-body concerns of the dying in a non-medical and holistic manner.
How is hypnosis conducted? Hypnosis is performed by a trained practitioner who uses verbal cues to create mental images, whereby a state of calm and relaxation is induced to help the patient to cope better with anxiety or pain. I am certified in the specialty of end-of-life hypnosis.
How does hypnosis help with end-of-life issues or concerns?
Support is available for the individual who is dying, caregivers (informal/family/friends and formal), end-of-life practitioners (doulas, hospice workers, PSWs, etc.), anyone connected to the end-of-life journey.
Imagine the right combination of relaxation, meditation, visualization, hypnosis, and self-hypnosis, allowing you to feel greater inner peace.
I have been supporting clients since 1988, actively involved in supporting families (as executive director for a national non-profit supporting corporate families in business) and seniors-related activities (at church and as a community member on the board of a non-profit in long-term care specializing in dementia/Alzheimers). In 2017 I fully transitioned to hypnosis and hypnotherapy, in 2019 I specialized in both end-of-life hypnosis and as an end-of-life doula. In 2020, I pursued additional training in hospice care and trauma resilience for the individual and community
