Ashley Kuhnau is a Certified Life Coach, Master Practitioner of NLP, and Certified Brainspotting Practitioner while also holding a degree in physical therapy located in Alexandria, MN.

With the tools of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Brainspotting, we will work together to overcome the mental roadblocks you face on any level. Located in Alexandria, MN but helping clients worldwide, I have seen the transformative nature of these tools and I can’t wait to share them with you.

The combination of Brainspotting and Neuro-Linguistic Programming paired with my background in physical therapy sets me apart from other life coaches. I am also a Licensed Brain Trainer through Amen University.  My background and training are quite unique when it comes to working with the mental, emotional, and nutritional components of the brain and bodily pain. It has been so rewarding to see the changes unfold in my clients. Equipped with these powerful tools, I am here to help you understand the thought pattern you may be stuck in. Instead of living moment by moment around physical and emotional pain, you will feel free to think and feel other things. This will allow you to better your relationships, health, and happiness.

Through Brainspotting we can unlock pain and trauma in the brain and body. You can conquer your fears and feel free.
