Greetings My Belles!!
My name is Darlene Bell BSN RN NC. I am an Integrative Nurse Coach that loves to bring comfort and ease to all patients and clients that I encounter daily. I enjoy helping people, it is just what I naturally do, and I find peace in knowing that I am making a difference in someone's life, even if it is for a moment.
During my many years in nursing, I learned that to care for others, one must also care for themself to truly be able to give. As a single mom to an awesome teenage son, working full-time and trying to juggle family life I found myself furloughed, March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fear, anxiety, and worry began to take over and so one sleepless night surfing the internet, I discovered nurse coaching. Nurse coaching is a licensed professional nurse who helps peers or clients overcome challenges and make beneficial changes in their health and well-being. This specialty in nursing intrigued me and I immediately enrolled in an Integrative Nurse Coach program that provided me with tools to facilitate change in clients holistically, treating the whole person (body, mind, emotion, spirit, environment). Enrollment and completion of the integrative nurse coach program allowed me to turn my focus on self-care, self-reflection, self-awareness, and personal development. I now understand my ability to help others by providing them with a safe space to facilitate growth, well-being, and optimal health.
