We explore your goals and what you would gain (or lose) by achieving them. We clarify what you want to achieve, when and the specifics. By firmly establishing your goals and motivation, we can take the next step in understanding what needs to happen next.
Overcoming negative thoughts and beliefs is important, since often our actions are led by our powerful subconscious. Coaching gets us in touch with our subconscious and helps to reframe our thinking.
A fundamental principle of coaching is getting into the right state of mind for whatever it is we want to achieve. You can change your state from feeling hopeless, demotivated, unconfident, troubled, doubtful, etc.to feeling positive, confident, energised, relaxed, peaceful, centred, certain etc. – whatever is appropriate for the outcome you want to achieve
I use NLP techniques which are basically processes which help you to see different perspectives; these can involve you moving around the room, visualisations or writing things down. These processes help to create new neural pathways (alternative thought patterns) and insights. They are surprisingly effective!
Together, we define key actions to progress for the next session so that each session moves you towards your goal. Coaching is all about movement - moving forwards and onwards! It is a very interesting and exciting process; it can release a lot of emotional blocks and I see people feeling lighter and energised as a result.
Coaching is not counselling – whilst past issues may come up during the process, we do not spend a lot of time analysing or talking through your past.
