HOW IT WORKS
A client once myself, I offer the first session free of charge, giving us a chance to discover if we're a good fit for your particular needs. At the end of that session, there'll be no pressure to make an immediate decision, nor to sign up to a set number of sessions. Indeed, if I believe a different therapist or form of therapy is better suited, I will offer to make an introduction.
Change can take place in as few as two sessions, or may require work over a longer period. Once you've made the changes you need (or want) to make - there's no need to complete any pre-arranged programme.
A friend once said talking stuff through with me had a tendency to result in ah-ha moments.
Perhaps I could do the same for you?
If you have unanswered questions about Life Coaching or NLP, scroll down this page where you'll find a bit of information about each.
Life Coaching is all about change. How to react when change happens to you, how to decide what change to make, how to make it. A Life Coach is there to help you navigate that process, to ask the right questions and provide support while choices are made and change takes place.
We start by having a conversation, during which we'll fully examine the challenges you are facing. I’ll seek out any underlying issues which could be making things difficult for you and, where appropriate, I’ll suggest some exercises or techniques to lessen or manage those issues. Finally, we'll consider the options and you'll try them on for size.
It wouldn't be life coaching if we didn't set goals and if there wasn't action being taken to achieve those goals, but the caring way means you'll feel enthusiasm instead of pressure.
The magic involved is in knowing the right questions, and in caring enough to ask them.
NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming, is generally described as the study of excellence, but my preferred view is to think of it as a user manual for your mind. Let’s start by breaking it down into its component parts first …
Neuro stands for the brain – in this case, your mind.
Linguistic stands for language (in all its forms, not simply spoken) and how your use of it can provide clues to what’s going on in your mind, either consciously or subconsciously.
Programming relates to how your behaviour is based upon what you’ve learned from your experiences to date – and how that can be changed, should you choose to.
NLP can be beneficial across multiple areas of your life …
By providing you with tools to handle negative emotions such as anxiety and stress
By enabling you to call up positive emotions such as confidence and self belief when you need them
By building your understanding of others and by enabling you to improve difficult relationships
By teaching you how to handle fear and phobias so they no longer limit your life
and so much more …
NLP offers much to those seeking development - my personal favourite is the strategy to fully dream your dream, then plan how to make it come to fruition.
