Why Life Coaching?

Do you have a sense that there’s more to you than you’re expressing in your daily life?

Do you feel you are constantly meeting everyone else’s expectations but your own?

Do you feel a disconnect between the face you show to the world and who you really are inside?

Do you have trouble communicating and expressing what you really need and want to say, even when it’s really important for your wellbeing?

Are you searching for lasting and true relationships that are supportive and real, but can’t seem to manifest them?

Do you desire a more communicative, intimate, or romantic primary relationship? Do you struggle to keep one? or find one?

Do you wish you could navigate your personal life more easily and more happily?

Do you struggle with anxiety, PTSD, or stress-related symptoms that make it harder to navigate all these issues?

Do you wish you had some time for yourself?

Do you still have dreams and ideals you wish you could pursue? Do you wish the work you did was connected to these things?

Do you have one part of you that wants to move forward and make changes and another that is not quite sure and holds you back?

Do you feel a yearning for something more? Are you not sure what it is?

The essence of life is a spiritual journey, do you feel you need guidance on yours?

My Story About Voice

DSCN1202

About 20 years ago, when my daughter was four, I lost my voice. I didn’t just lose it for a day or 2, or even a week. I lost my voice for three entire years. In fact, I went to doctors and specialists at the time who said, “You’ll never get your voice back. At the very most, we may be able to give you some sound if you take botox injections into your throat. But there are no guarantees,” they said. So, here I was, a mother of a young child who couldn’t yell!!

I joke but you can imagine the difficulty of living life without being able to speak. My voice would sometimes come out in a whisper, which would allow me at times to read stories to my little girl. I was a single mom needing employment. However, finding jobs where you don’t need to talk is more than a feat.   I couldn’t be heard on a phone, let alone at the helm of any customer service desk. I couldn’t negotiate. I couldn’t participate at meetings….

I went back to the specialists who told me once again that I would never get my voice back. They explained that this “kind of thing” just happens to people and nobody really knows why. What they explained was that the muscles around my vocal chords were tightening spontaneously, not allowing my vocal chords to vibrate which was required to make sound. The Botox injections ( which they said were really my only option if they even worked) would be administered through my neck via a long needle that had to strategically avoid the chords themselves and somehow reach the stiffened muscles beyond them. Botox they explained was actually a toxin from snake venom that in small doses could possibly relax the muscles. As you can imagine, there was great risk of permanent damage and I was not only un-intrigued, I was scared.

About Dineen

Hi, my name is Dineen Carta and I am a mid-life woman, a mother, a Psychosynthesis Transformational Life Coach, an Empathic Practitioner of Energy and Healing Touch Therapies, an Intuitive and a Spiritual Devotee

I have a 23-year old daughter, have spanned careers ranging from business & financial to social & creative, and have studied voraciously the topics of psychology and spirituality via The Awakened Heart School, Albany, NY and  The Synthesis Center, Amherst, MA, where I received my board certification.

My path has led me to serve others in their pursuit of Self-Love, Self-Mastery, Inner Fulfillment, Outer Manifestation, Creative Expression and Spiritual Practice.

Having practiced prayer my entire life, meditation for 30 years, yoga for 15 and qigong for 7, I have developed a wellspring from which to draw to assist my clients.  In addition, I have explored techniques in healing expression from acting and improv comedy, dance, painting, singing to writing in the form of poetry & prose. I am hoping to add some of my paintings to my website for purchase sometime soon! I recently published my first book of autobiographical story poems about the challenge of single and romantic life and its lessons for all of us.

It is entitled “Loving The Ache” and is available through the link on the above menu.

You Deserve It

Support For Women

“The challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else” –U.K.

Girl on bike

I am a woman’s woman.  In other words, I don’t bash, I build up, other women. I encourage, inspire and support women to live according to their ideals and their vision.  I know what it’s like to live alone and face challenges that require determination and self-discipline.  I raised my 23-year old daughter myself and forged a path that I was told I wouldn’t be able to.  I did it anyway. And it wasn’t always easy. But I kept at it. I  also have really positive, fulfilling, communicative relationships with men today.  I believed it was posssible and began to manifest the things I most wanted into my life. You can have all this too.

Let me start at the beginning:

photo-1439902315629-cd882022cea0 I made a series of choices early on that led to even more pain.  I married the wrong guy, forged the wrong career and found myself in the throes of depression.  I reached a point where I knew that if I were ever going to be happy again, I had to dig myself out of the hole I had dug.

I explored any means of healing and self-expression I could find to discover my joy again.   This spanned the arts and immersed study of spirituality and psychology. My life experiences and explorative study led me to realize that many women suffer from this same or similar life trajectory.

You Deserve A Voice Too

FOR MEN

I want to extend an invitation to men who are doing the work of trying to discover who they are outside of  societal, cultural conditioning, who are empathetic, creative, sensitive, spiritual and want to be able to show that side of themselves as part of their true masculinity. You may feel all of this inside you, but not feel safe or “allowed” to express it. You struggle with internalized voices that tell you to toughen up or it’s not manly to show tenderness, support or compassion. You may also come up against a wall in relationships because you want to be there for your partner but you find yourself shutting down when she needs you the most, or attracting women who reject your authentic and caring kindness. Perhaps, you are really desiring to share your true heart and gifts with the world, but you find yourself holding back like you have always done, in hopes of  not making waves, not drawing attention or ridicule to yourself. Perhaps you are someone who has challenged yourself in all these areas, but want to take your visibility and contribution to the next level. Maybe, reading this, is the first time you’ve been able to actually put a name and description to any of these feelings.  Just let me tell you, You are not alone.  Though there is more emphasis of late on the way women have been affected by the emotional and cultural conditioning and limits put on us, men have been just as affected.  Those characteristics that every human being has like empathy, compassion, inclusivity, sharing, nurturing, magnetism, receptivity, giving, creating…..have been relegated inappropriately as feminine and therefore, “less than” and this has affected both men and women.  The reality is these Qualities, as they should be named, are both Spiritual and Human, just like, dynamism, assertiveness, directness, goal-driven. Men and Women are supposed to embody all of them to be complete and well-rounded. It’s all on a spectrum. Each person has his or her certain pallette of qualities that create them, and if they are not using all of them when they are painting their life, they will feel unfulfilled, personally and relationally. So, my invitation to you is to seek to Be Who You Really Are.

Sometimes when we are trying out new parts of ourselves, it can be helpful to do so in safe place first, which is what I would provide through a coaching relationship. I will give feedback, raise introspective questions to consider, provide insight and basically “have your back” as you navigate new waters personally, relationally and creatively. For the first time in your life, you will have someone encouraging you to be Everything and Anything Your Heart and Soul Desires, and to put a Voice to all that you can be, in increments with support.

Healing Touch

How Do I know if I need Healing Touch?Healing Touch

Many times what we are going through emotionally, mentally or spiritually shows up in the body. That bodily manifestation is our warning sign to to hurry up and start taking better care of ourselves. This is what was going on for me when I lost my voice (See “My Story About Voice”).
Some people have chronic headaches, or neck pain. Sometimes our mind might feel “fuzzy” or unfocused. We might feel depressed or tired…. While some of our aches and ailments are from injury, some are the cumulative results of repeatedly denying what we know deep inside we need to move, change, or heal in our lives. Trauma is often lodged this way.
Healing and energy work is wonderful on its own and as a complement to life coaching, as it allows for this lodged energy to be moved, not only through airing it through speaking, but by giving it the proper channels to move through and be released energetically, instead of moving in circles, around and around inside our bodies.

Black Underwear

A feminine Empowement Event


Dineen Carta of Unveil Your Voice Life Coaching Presents: An Integrated Theater Therapy Event

Black Underwear | A Feminine Empowerment Theatrical Performance

Saturday, January 27, 2018, Spirit Tree Connections, 987 New Loudon Road, Rte 9, Latham, NY,  7pm

 

We can’t begin to create change in our lives simply by being told how. Real change is ignited only when you can experience alignment in your body, your heart and your mind.
– Dineen Carta

Dineen Carta is the creator of Black Underwear – the Integrated Theater Therapy Event: a dynamic one-woman show of what can be accomplished when we engage all aspects of our essential selves.

“I’m taking my life coaching, my energy healing work, my poetry and my performing arts background and putting it all together in a one- of-a-kind stage performance,” says Dineen. “It’s something I’ve never seen done.”

Integrated Theater Therapy is a fresh new format that combines theatric performance with therapeutic approaches to unlock personal, emotional, and spiritual development.

While most life coaches focus on public speaking, Dineen is turning the format on its head by making it more creative, more performative and interactive, so people can see growth in action.

The performance is divided into two parts: a stage play and an interactive coaching opportunity.

“I’m showing through my performance in real time how women can do this with their lives,” says Dineen. “It’s about embracing all of ourselves and living from that place as best you can.

Dineen says she believes the key to change is to access the inherent wisdom and creativity that you alone possess.

Black Underwear | A Feminine Empowerment Theatrical Play & Performance explores the challenges of all women through its main character, Sunny. Her inner world is brought to life through three characters that represent her heart, mind and instinct. We see these characters grapple with the events in Sunny’s life.

This Integrated Theater Therapy Event is based on Loving the Ache: A Woman’s Journey, a collection of Dineen’s poetry and prose that explores the connection between women’s sensuality and their spirituality. Poetry from the book is featured and used to punctuate scenes in the performance.

“I want women in the audience to come in with their individual stories and leave feeling like they are part of a community,” says Dineen. I’m hoping there will be a sense of empowerment and shared experience.”

Dineen’s ITT event is adaptable to many sized venues and she is interested in bringing Sunny to many audiences. To host a show, use the contact page on this website to contact Dineen directly.
