The Adult Chair: A Guide to Loving Yourself

I have seen thousands of clients during the 20 years I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist and coach. We have worked on a wide range of issues ranging from depression and anxiety to codependency and relationship problems with spouses and children, from weight loss and body hatred to job and money struggles. During that time, the Adult Chair model has proven to be the most simple and profound way I have found yet to help individuals and couples navigate the world as centered, peaceful, empowered people. 

How can I say this with such confidence? 

I have spent most of my 20 plus years in practice searching for new, different, and better ways to help people. I’ve tested the best with actual clients. Some of the approaches and models were just different twists on tradition, while others (like energy medicine, meditation, neurolinguistic programming and acupressure) were a bit more radical. The tools and approaches that really worked became part of my unique practice, and my clients have benefitted by experiencing much better results in much shorter time.

What you're about to download is the best of those tools. 

I'm thrilled to offer this ebook introduction to the Adult Chair to you today and start you on your own journey of discovery!

Dearest Michelle, to say that I have changed is an understatement. I am a new person because of the work I have done with you. Learning how to sit in my Adult Chair has given me back the power that I lost and raised the self - esteem that I never had. I wish I could find words to express the gratitude that I have for your work and your time with me. You are truly an angel. Thank you for everything.
— Christina S.
Dear Michelle, where do I begin? In two sessions with you, you have given us more than our other therapist did in 2 years! My husband and I are thrilled to have found you. The work you are doing with the chairs in incredible and so valuable for individuals and couples. We both love your approach and plan to recommend our friends see you so we can all speak the “Adult Chair language” together. We are thrilled to have found you.

Michelle is like a chiropractor for your soul.

Michelle, I have no words for how grateful I am. The biggest news is that I am off my anxiety meds! This adult chair work has changed my life profoundly. I am forever better thanks to you and the work you are doing. Please don’t ever stop, people need you in our world. Thank you so much for all you do.

A Weekend of Self Love Using the Adult Chair

NASHVILLE, TN • New York, NY • Charlotte, NC 

Join Michelle Chalfant for an intimate and inspiring weekend based on the Adult Chair model of living. The weekend will be filled with lectures, group work, meditations, breathing exercises, bonding and more.

Come join us for an inspirational and experiential weekend where you will learn how to transform your life using The Adult Chair model. This is a self-discovery model that will take you on a journey to find your true self, that is buried under pain, fears and masks that we hide behind. Along the way, you will experience relief from and discover the root of your anxiety/depression. If you struggle with codependency, you will learn where it comes from, how to move beyond it and live an empowered life. Your relationships will improve, starting with the relationship with yourself. By the end of the weekend, you will have a solid understanding of how to love yourself. Lastly, you will find your power, your voice, learn how to set boundaries and live in your body in a grounded way.

Unless we had healthy role models, we grow up with the dysfunctional programs and patterns that are passed down from those that raised us. Many of us find ourselves searching for love in all the wrong places. We may pick partners that are narcissists or other incapable partners that aren't capable of loving us the way we need and deserve it, so we either blame and shame ourselves and/or find vices to numb our pain. Many of us eat, drink or reach for something else to avoid feeling. Underneath our masks resides a vulnerable, open child that is crying out for attention, acceptance and love. This child holds the key to finding love for ourselves, and is not only longing to meet you but fully accessible, inside of us. By the end of this weekend you will meet your inner child and begin the bonding process that will give you the ability to love yourself.

In addition to learning the Adult Chair model of self-love, you will gain deeper understandings of how your energy (and others) effects your mood, your sense of self and the power to create your reality. You will experience meditations and grounding techniques to promote greater peace and balance.

Whether you are experiencing anxiety, relationship issues, lack of boundaries, codependency or just want to come and learn the Adult Chair model, we’d love to have you part of our group! You will leave the workshop feeling lighter, with a clearer sense of self. You will have a tool chest of ideas and techniques that you will incorporate into your new way of living and most importantly, begin the journey of loving yourself.

Michelle, It would be an understatement to say that you are a person who has found your passion and truly follows your passion. What a blessing for you and to all those who are fortunate enough to spend time with you. My (inner) child is loved and I know she will step through that chain link fence and I will be there to hold her hand when she does it, thank you for giving her me!
— Lana, 2017 Graduate
Thank you again Michelle!! I have been teaching everyone around me about what I learned and even they have said they’ve seen a huge difference in how I’ve talked about myself and my relationship after all of this. I guess now that I’m thinking about it, I probably shouldn’t share too much so that they will feel inclined to sign up for the next one!! What you put together I know was a ton of work and I really appreciate it and I know everyone else did too! I just wanted to take a second to tell you how grateful I am about the whole experience.
— Ashley, 2017 Graduate

This week, we're talking about EFT, or "Emotional Freedom Technique." You may have heard of it referred to as tapping for short, and it's one of my favorite tools for helping my clients break free from anxiety, depression, generalized stress — even physical pain and performance issues! It involves tapping along your meridian system with your fingertips — the very same meridians you may be familiar with in acupuncture — to help move clogged emotional energy through your system.

Public Speaking

Michelle is available to join your group or event to present her work dedicated to living authentically in The Adult Chair. Her honest and engaged style allows her to lead groups through difficult challenges — as individuals and teams — with grace. Her work brings groups together and cultivates the natural and authentic community within us. 

Michelle is equally adept as a keynote speaker with corporate groups undergoing complex change or reorganization as she is with associations in healing circles and individuals seeking personal growth. Her strength is in demonstrating the power of authentic living, and the strength we can apply in our personal and professional lives when we begin this work.

For more information, please submit the speaking inquiry form below with details on your event. We will be in touch within a business day.
