Cindy Battino, BHSP

A History of Helping and Teaching

Life coach, energy worker, dancer, personal trainer, speaker, author, life changer and happiness provider; these are just a few words to describe Cindy Battino.

Cindy officially began her career 26 years ago. Unofficially, she doesn’t remember a time in her life when she did not consider the energy within and all that her mind and body could accomplish. She learned to do full-body push-ups as a child, and danced professionally until the age of 21.

Cindy then began a career in fitness as an aerobics instructor and became a personal trainer. Her work included instructing other personal trainers in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. She also held a position as a high school training and conditioning coach in Northern Virginia.

Cindy’s philosophy is one of encouraging a positive intentional life for her clients. So, her next logical step was to explore how to get personal balance back when life seems to throw up roadblocks.

In 2003 Cindy began learning energy work. After four years of intensive study, she became a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, earning her Bachelor of Science degree. She is certified as a second-degree Reiki worker. Cindy studied with Mietek Wirkus and has completed his advanced classes on bio-energy. Mr. Wirkus was one of the first professional bio-energy therapists employed by a medical center to complement the work of physicians. She previously graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Economics in 1994.

She then founded Transformational Healing, relocating her practice to Middleburg, Virginia in 2011. Cindy sees clients in her Northern Virginia office. Most of her life coaching work is done virtually (via Skype, Face Time, and phone) or with a combination of virtual and in-office sessions. This way Cindy is able to work with clients across the country.

As a successful life coach and energy practitioner she is a teacher by trade. She uses the skills she learned at The Brennan School to assist people to find more beauty in themselves and happiness in their lives. Her clients go on a journey of self-discovery while she mirrors for them their true self. She uses traditional and non-traditional techniques to assist those who are stuck and don’t know why. Those who are unhappy in their marriages and those that lack trust or self-confidence.

Cindy uses the software Trello for her clients and has an extensive library of exercises, skills, concepts, resources and homework to make each client’s journey unique and effective. Cindy chose coaching over counseling so that she can have a more directive approach with people. She can offer more choices and options so that the client can choose the path that most resonates with them. It is her goal that each client experience more joy on a daily basis within the short time of 6 months to one year. She has true compassion for each individual’s ordeals. Cindy helps clients discover their truth in a safe environment filled with compassion, love, and acceptance.

In Your Words

"I was really glad to have Cindy to talk to when I was 14 and again this past spring. I was very anxious about certain things in both instances. Cindy explained to me how the mind works and how I was over thinking things. She also have me tools to overcome my fears. After talking with her I felt much more relaxed and capable to deal with my issues." -Christian age 16

"Cindy Battino has been an expert guest on Savvy Central Radio several times, and has shared her knowledge and wisdom on such topics as energy healing, living authentically, divorce, relationships, forgiveness and growth. Her insights will open your mind and heart to all the possibilities that exist to finding true happiness and passion in your life. " - Christina Nitschmann host of Savvy Central Radio

"Cindy helped me greatly though what I thought was a difficult divorce (I guess they are all difficult). Not only did Cindy provide emotional support but she was also willing to challenge my paradigms, push me out of my comfort zone and make me give serious thought to how I was interacting with the world. I am happier for it.." - S.A.

“Working with Cindy and her Flowing Thru The Funk program, I made small lifestyle changes that demonstrated immediate results. Over a period of 8 weeks, I lost 15 pounds and have established a maintainable exercise and nutrition regime that works for me and my family. An unexpected bonus was the spiritual aspect of Cindy’s energy practice which has enabled me to work through personal challenges with “new eyes” and a positive perspective.” - Susan S.
