Natasha Silver Bell developed SBC LifeTeams, SilverBell Coaching’s unique methodology of healing, based on more than a decade of experience working in the field and informed by her own story of recovery. SBC’s philosophy of care centers around creative partnership between clinicians and SBC Coaches. Since its inception in 2012 SBC has embodied this distinctive approach, motivating clients through each stage of their process and guiding them into a life of sustained, long-term recovery.
The SBC Global LifeTeam comprises over 150 professional Coaches and Companions worldwide with LifeTeam Managers, Nutritional Therapists, Wellness Practitioners, and Executive Function experts working in partnership with our clinical resource bank of Behavioral Health experts, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Therapists, and Diagnostic Clinicians.
GRACE: Our work takes place in a safe emotional space. Transformative collaboration with clients arises from the non-judgmental and compassionate lens through which we view their experience. Clients of every race, religion, nation of origin, sexual orientation, self-identification, family dynamic and experience of disordered behavior are welcomed and accepted. Grace, good faith, and goodwill are the cornerstones of SBC support.
RESILIENCE: Coaches provide a resilient and non-combative presence. SBC Coaches navigate skillfully through and recover quickly from challenging situations with clients or their families. We adapt quickly, maintaining focus on clients’ goals and intentions. Our training and technique supports and guides us toward client-forward service at all times.
OBSERVATION: SBC Coaches maintain an unobstructed view of client behaviors and patterns, free of ego and insertion of self and bolstered by professional/ethical boundaries. The transparent, real-time assessment of efficacy allows for the opportunity to pivot and adjust as needed, ensuring SBC Coaches’ commitment to and accountability for the daily functioning and flourishing of our clients.
WISDOM: No matter our own personal journey, there is no replacement for the critical element of professional experience and expertise in coaching. Indeed, SBC Coaches’ professional experience, expertise and training provide the essential framework of our collaboration with clients, and are the primary source of SBC clients’ confidence in our capabilities. Clients thrive when Coaches speak from an educated and informed space.
TRUTH: Effective, transformative coaching necessitates truth and transparency. Ever-aware that clients may have felt deeply mistrusting in the past, SBC Coaches gently establish opportunities to create client relationships built on trust and openness. This critical bond encourages and allows SBC clients to discover, discuss, and deepen understanding of their own truth and how it might be harnessed in service of their journey toward health and healing.
HONOR: Integrity is the centerpiece of SBC operations and support services. In order to ensure the highest standard of care and excellence, SBC Coaches remain accountable in our actions and communication at all times and with no exceptions.

First, I am so grateful that we connected and that we’ve been able to work with “A”, “B” and the rest of our SBC LifeTeam.
Second, “A” and “B” have been gifts from God to me, my wife, “C”, and our younger daughter (who is 14). Last night, we were all in our kitchen telling stories, laughing, and looking at photos…and I was deeply moved and grateful. Given all of the pain we’ve been dealing with, the nightmare of “C’s” ED and addiction, and how hard things have been for all of us…to feel that sense of joy, laughter, and love is remarkable. And, the way “A” has become like a part of our family is so beautiful.
Third, when we connected on Zoom that first time, within like 5 minutes you mentioned the Wave. And while it sounded amazing, the thought of sending our girl to Malaysia seemed completely insane to me – like sending her to Mars or something. We did connect with them by email about 6 months ago and had the Wave on our radar, but it still seemed crazy to even consider it. The way things came together for us to get “C” there over the weekend was truly unbelievable to me…like divine intervention in the truest sense. And none of it could have happened without “A” and “B”. Without “B’s” extraordinary coaching and guidance and without “A’s” magic and intuition (and the fact that she loves “C” and “C” loves her, and trusts her), it never would have happened. Although I’m still in shock and working through my own fears and anxieties about our girl being gone for so long and being so far away from us, deep in my heart and soul, I have a sense that her being at the Wave is not only going to give her a real chance to recover and heal, I think it is going to transform her life and our family in a profound way.
Finally, I want to thank you for what you do and how you do it! It felt like a huge risk for us to work with you and your team given the expense. We make pretty good money, but we’re not uber wealthy. Spending this kind of money, even on the most important thing possible (the health and wellbeing of our children) was and is super scary, especially for me. Even with the fear, vulnerability, and the enormity of it all, I am feeling so grateful that we have the ability to do it and that doing so allowed us to grow, change, and evolve…and, more important, it allowed us and our amazing girl to get some of the support we truly needed.
We are not anywhere close to out of the woods yet, of course. “C” has a lot of work and healing to do, as do we. I have no idea how things will continue to unfold and evolve, but I do feel grateful and excited that “C” is in the care of SBC and the Wave, even as mind-blowing as it is to have our 16 year old 8,500 miles away in a place we’ve never been or seen.
We feel so fortunate to have “A” and “B” on our team and in our corner…and you as well.
The care Natasha provides is personalized and effective, given with love, respect and nurturing. She also has an invaluable sober community…
As a mother of a daughter who struggles with addiction, I have passionately tried to find her good aftercare to support her sobriety and continued growth. After many disappointing tries at “highly recommended” ones, I became very disheartened with the possibility that my daughter would ever find excellent aftercare, Then we were blessed with an amazing referral – Natasha at Silverbell Coaching. From the moment we met her, we had renewed hope. The care she provides is personalized and effective, given with love, respect and nurturing. She also has an invaluable sober community which gives my daughter even more support. I cannot express any more emphatically the relief and comfort I now feel that my daughter is under the care of Natasha and her team. Thank you Natasha for your wisdom, experience and love!!
– A Grateful Mom
Working with Natasha has brought my recovery to a level I failed to know existed…I started working with Natasha with some sobriety time already under my belt, but I was still lost. I knew what I wanted to do, but I was directionless. Natasha has helped me organize my goals, make them attainable, and take the steps in order to become closer to being the person I feel that I set-out to be. She has helped me better implement these tools I have learned in sobriety towards resolving: work issues, family problems, relationship trust issues, and everything else that I needed work on. She has a genuine and cohesive approach that makes my “end of the world problems” feel less scary. I am grateful for Natasha’s presence and influence in my recovery and I am excited to see what’s ahead.
Natasha held a safe space for me to explore all of my feelings and fears. She supported me and encouraged me while never telling me what to do… My journey led me to the heart wrenching truth that my marriage was not working for me. Our two young children were holding us together. The thought of leaving my marriage was extremely overwhelming and confusing. I was consumed by indecision and fear of emotional and financial insecurity. It wasn’t until I started working with Natasha that I was able to move in a new direction. Natasha held a safe space for me to explore all of my feelings and fears. She supported me and encouraged me while never telling me what to do. As it became clearer that I wanted to move forward with a divorce, Natasha provided me with all of the resources I needed for my family and was available to me at all times. Natasha’s warmth, genuine care and overall presence has played such a significant role in transitioning into my new life.

Natasha’s unconditional love, hope and compassion helped me through a very difficult period in my life. I had become extremely depressed and it was one of the darkest periods of my life. I began to drink heavily and became suicidal in my own mind, although I did not act on it…because of Natasha’s light, encouragement and patience, I was able to recover and began to see the light at the end of the tunnel…I am now really happy and am a new person.

Natasha encouraged and empowered me by reminding me that I didn’t have to do anything that I wasn’t ready for. She helped me process and prepare for difficult conversations that I needed to have in ways that no one ever has before. Above all, she gave me advice in the most patient, non-judgmental and caring way. She helped me distinguish between the things I actually wanted out of a relationship, and the things that others were pushing me to want. I learned that I don’t have to simply go along with everything suggested by someone I’m with…Natasha reminded me that my desires and concerns are important too.

Natasha is one of the most spiritual, loving and kind people in the world. She genuinely cares about helping people grow. She is a fabulous listener and has a calm about her that is contagious. Natasha draws on her own experience to connect with people and help them see where the right path is. She always gives suggestions, and never talks ‘at’ people. I can’t say enough about how amazing she is!
