Janessa Rauch is a senior vice president, founding executive board member and faculty at The Canadian Institute of Integrative Nursing Development & Education Ltd. She is a Registered Nurse, Board Certified Nurse Coach, and is currently working towards her master’s in nursing exploring the self-care practices of pediatric oncology nurses.

Janessa believes that as nurses we hold unique gifts and perspective that make us natural agents of change when it comes to healthcare. When Sherry Hole, the founder of TheCIINDE, began to share her mission of bringing the heART back into nursing with Janessa she became hooked on the endless possibilities that were about to be born through this incredible institute. Now, a couple years later, she feels incredibly blessed to be part of such a wonderful mission bringing holistic nursing and nurse coaching to nurses in Canada, and beyond.

In 2017, Janessa started an independent practice called The Nurse Coach. Currently she is updating her signature course titled ‘Underneath the Mask: Self-Care CPR for Nurses & Providers’, expected to be relaunched in the fall of 2020. Janessa’s mission is to work with you to become proactive, rather than reactive when it comes to your health and wellness. She believes that understanding the stories we tell ourselves about our health and are pivotal. When we understand our story and the thoughts that often guide us along the way, we become more in tune with our mind, body, and spirit.

Core-8 Foundation

As a coach, Janessa has found herself working with clients around the same key areas that she often refers to as “the basics” of self-care. Over time she has come to call this process the Core-8 Foundation which includes simple breathing techniques, mindfulness, nutrition;
hydration, movement, sleep, stress reduction, emotional regulation, and re-connection. This is where a considerable amount of time is spent rediscovering/uncovering the basics of self-care. Janessa believes that self-awareness is self-care, and once you have rediscovered your own Core-8 Foundation, you will begin to feel a greater sense of flow in your everyday life.

Healthcare Professionals

As a registered nurse she understands what it feels like to work in multiple areas of healthcare. She understands the complexities that come with wanting to care for your clients to the best of your ability but find you have come up against internal and external resistance to caring for yourself. In working through her own struggles with burnout, compassion fatigue, and lack of self-care, she has come to realize that her passion lies in working with healthcare professionals experiencing the same struggles she once identified as a “normal” part of life.

Independent Practice Coaching for Healthcare Professionals

Over the last few years, she has begun to work with nurses looking for guidance in how to navigate the world of independent practice. Working in this capacity has quickly become a passion of hers and she is excited to see how she can best serve you on your venture into
independent practice as a coach, and mentor! Janessa has co-authored a course through TheCIINDE called Independent Practice Business Course, to provide nurses and other healthcare providers with a step by step guide to starting an independent practice.

Clients with Lifestyle Related Chronic Disease(s)

So often we are told that we have been diagnosed, and that we need to adopt a healthier lifestyle. We are told to lose weight, exercise more, sleep better and stress less. But often during these visits there isn’t time for the deeper work that goes along with these directives. As a Board- Certified Nurse Coach, Janessa is equipped with the knowledge and expertise to co-create an individualized blueprint based on your needs, past history and goals so that you can take charge of your health and wellness.

What is Nurse Coaching?

This powerful form of coaching puts you {the client} back in control of your life. Janessa’s role is to help guide you back to what you innately know is best for you.

Janessa’s Offerings

In a Blueprint Session, we identify areas of your life you wish to evoke change and we develop an individualized blueprint based upon one concern you wish to work on. Both the 4-Week Foundation and the 12-Week Intensive include a 90- minute intake conversation where we focus on you and uncover areas you may feel stuck. We focus on your current lifestyle habits, core values/strengths, current story and thought patterns, and identify areas of your life you wish to evoke change. We go back to the basics and gain a deeper understanding the Core-8 Method. The total number of sessions is dependent on the program purchased. All coaching sessions take place via Zoom.
