A good Coach is able to assist a client to obtain their desired goal. A Coach achieves this with the use of powerful tools and techniques to help their client uncover their own answers, gain clarity and discover what is holding them back. This level of awareness and support encourages their clients to break through any obstacles and go on to create the life they want.
Although some skills may be similar, a Coach is not a Counsellor or a Therapist. The main difference with a Coach is that they focus on future possibilities rather than past events; this is achieved with techniques that enable them to assist a client to explore their goals and ambitions.
The most vital role of a Coach is to help their clients to unlock their potential, maximise their performance and get the results they want.
I am an experienced Coach who specialises in helping people who are ‘stuck’ with unwanted patterns, especially anxiety, low self esteem and lack of focus.
My authentic approach gets to the heart of the issue and moves clients forward quickly to where they are able to flourish
Neuro Linguistic Programming
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is an extremely effective way of making lasting rapid change in your life. It is interested in how to make change as simple as possible, focusing on HOW the PRESENT & the FUTURE can be different rather than spending too much time asking WHY we have issues and dragging up the PAST, so it makes change an intriguing and often fun process.
It’s concerned with:
* Neuro – the way our brains and minds work
* Linguistic – the way language affects the way our brains and minds work
* Programming – how our brain often seems to be working, sometimes against us, in very automated ways
Developed in the 1970s at the University of California Santa Cruz by Dr Grinder and Dr Bandler it began as a research endeavour to try and discover why some experts in the field of creating personal change seemed to be more effective than others, and what was similar about their very different approaches.
Using the process of ‘modelling’ – identifying the most important parts of someone’s behaviours, language, choices, actions and thought processes – they evaluated key figures in the world of psychology and change, including Fritz Perls (the founder of Gestalt therapy), Milton Erickson (one of the most influential psychiatrists of the last century) and Virginia Satir (founder of family therapy) and from their findings developed a model of what made for effective change – the so called ‘Meta Model’. Much of this work was done with the assistance of Gregory Bateson, an anthropologist on the faculty of UCSC, who’s wide ranging work spanned psychology, cybernetics, linguistics and systems theory.
Due to the success of this initial project into understanding and modelling what makes for effective change, other projects followed. Initiated by the idea of considering talents as something that could be identified and adopted – summarised in the NLP phrase, ‘what if we presupposed that if one person can do something then it should be possible for another individual to reproduce that behaviour, if they could only work out how?’ Many other skills have since been modelled, and many more examples of human brilliance continue to be explored and modelled to this day.
These include considering how some people:
* Get over phobias
* Become more motivated
* Quit drinking
* Resolve their allergies
* Lose weight
* Stop smoking
* Become happy
* Deal with loss
* Recover from serious illness
* Can speak in public easily
