Very intuitive, genuine & insightful. I enjoy speaking openly and feeling how connected Amy is as a coach.
Amy Hadden is a former student of mine who has built her own practice and is an absolutely phenomenal clinician. I have watched her development over the last years from starting a second career to building her practice and have the highest respect for her and how she coaches. Her ability for weaving a bottom-up, trauma-informed, strengths-based approach to healing, with her experience as a former teacher, and her own wise counsel is a beautiful mix. I consult with Amy as a colleague regularly now because I love learning from her and so value her input into my own work and personal development. I refer out to her whenever people ask me about an SSP practitioner or a coach who is somatically informed and I know that anyone I send to her will be in the safest of hands. She is one of the warmest, kindest, most skillful practitioners I know. She is consummately professional, she stays incredibly up to date on the most recent research for serving her clients, and she is a constant inspiration to me in how she approaches her work. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

“Amy is my go-to health coach for my thriving Functional Medicine practice. She adds an extra layer of support a patient needs to feel completely understood, supported and successful. I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t benefit from working with Amy. If I had to describe her in a nutshell, she’s “that” teacher that was your favorite in elementary school who has turned her passion from loving on kids to selflessly helping people along her God-given journey, and makes you feel like her best-friend along the way. Her gentle spirit is nonjudgemental, encouraging and she is armed with so many state-of-the-art tools, techniques and resources you will leave empowered beyond your dreams.”

Amy’s voice, manner, way of speaking, and whole self is calming. Facing food/weight issues is hard and she makes is easy to think about and change my internal dialogue from negative to an outlook of empowerment and hope.
“I really like the way Amy helps me find solutions to my problems; she doesn’t tell me what I want to hear or make any demands, she simply coaches the answers out and then summarizes what I said. It’s such a positive feeling and I feel like I have all the tools I need to get to my goals. I look forward to my talks with Amy and find that knowing I have an appointment with her keeps me honest and on track. I’ve made progress on all my health goals and discovered how to trade all or nothing thinking for small steps and a much kinder voice towards myself.”
The greatest thing I valued from our time together was Amy’s gentle reminders of truth I needed to hear – and at just the right moment. Her preparedness was evident, as well as her listening ear to remain in the moment – always ready and willing to lead in my heart’s direction. Chronic health issues are a journey and when you find providers who are genuinely invested in your case – and life – it can make all the difference.
Amy is intuitive about people’s needs and where they are in their journey so she instantly connects. She allows me to pick my own plan but suggests ideas I never would have considered that brought a wholeness of self to my single-minded focus on food.
Coaching has helped me vocalize thoughts that I already had but had not been brave enough to face. I really appreciate Amy’s insights, patience and how she pays attention to even the smallest details and connect all the experiences as a whole. It is rare to find someone as professional but deeply caring as her. I found our work to be very productive.
Your words were inspiring and we will continue to share them with other coaches! Thank you for speaking at Virtual Graduation!

I found it really helpful to formulate and envision a detailed plan that would fit my lifestyle.
