What is Neuro Linguisting Programming (NLP)?
NLP is the study of three very important aspects of human experience: neurology, language and behavior which influence each other.
Neurology is how we store and process our thoughts and how our brain works.
Our language influences our thoughts. Our thoughts affect our language. The words we use define the way we communicate with ourselves and others, which ultimately affects our state, behavior and results.
NLP consists of a variety of techniques and models that are used to communicate with our conscious and unconscious mind. The tools enable us to choose better responses, adjust our feelings and manage positive and negative states.
NLP also helps to overcome limiting beliefs and limitations so we can achieve the desired changes effectively and quickly.
Is this type of coaching long term?
Not in my books! My aim is to get you to a stage where you don't need me anymore. I prepare my clients to depend on themselves going forward yet I will be there for any future support that you may require.
How many coaching sessions do I need?
What is the difference between an NLP Master Practitioner and an NLP Practitioner?
Both NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Practitioner are professionally certified as proficient in the skills and techniques of NLP.
The main difference between them is in their depth of knowledge and how they incorporate it with their skills.
NLP Master Practitioners invested more study time and practical time using the skills with others. They’ve developed a deep level of understanding on the topics, techniques and how the each technique relate with one another to generate the needed results.
Thus they will generally have more options to utilize in terms of solutions for their clients and techniques that they can use.
Many NLP Practitioners build a passion in this field and continue to grow and enhance their skills subsequently becoming NLP Master Practitioners.
What is the difference between a Life Coach and an NLP Coach?
NLP Coaching offers a lot more than traditional life coaching. It helps you accomplish greater success and lasting results.
These days where anxiety and stress could be experienced anytime and anywhere, many more people feel the need for guidance and coaching so they can become the best version of themselves.
Life coaching helps identify the barricades that are stopping you from achieving your desired outcome.
Away from the perception of these barricades, NLP Coaching allows you to dig deeper and identify the root cause of these barricades. Once they’re demolished, the result is transformational and profound.
In the long run, NLP Coaching offers a much superior opportunity for achievements and new routes to a more rewarding life.
Usually, the barricades to success are internal and tricky to pinpoint. They are so deep-rooted in the unconscious and many times strongly attached to a negative emotionally charged event which results in staying in the same place.
This is where life coaching has it’s limits. For example, once you’ve identified that a client lacks the self-esteem to ask someone out or the stress is deep-rooted to a traumatic event in their childhood – what happens then?
No traditional life coaching will help build this person’s self-esteem or make the trauma disappear. Such cases require the release of negative emotions which creates those barricades in the form of anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt.
This is precisely where NLP Coaching will make all the difference and create a permanent shift.
With NLP Coaching, the barriers to achievements will be identified using a wide range of tools and those negative emotions will be released so the person can reach their fullest potential and reach their goals easily and effortlessly.
NLP Coaching will make you experience huge shifts in your mental and physical states. Instead of proposing ideas and concepts, NLP Coaching offers clarity to access the inner resources you possess to fulfill your aspirations.
Who hires an NLP Coach?
Anyone! The only thing that distinguishes these people amongst those who don’t is the need to change a part/parts of their life so they become a happier version of themselves, the awareness of staying focused and getting there faster with the support of a coach. If you want to improve, change a specific area in your life or feel confused in the direction you want to take to reach your ultimate goal, this is for you.
What will I gain from NLP Coaching?
NLP Coaching gives you the benefit of having an exclusively dedicated person working closely with you to successfully achieve your goals in a non-judgemental, supportive, encouraging and motivating environment anytime you need it. The tools and techniques used in NLP are very powerful. The focus will be on keeping you on track on where you want to be in life and how you can move forward into that direction in an empowering and “I CAN” mindset.
Coaching vs Therapy vs Counseling- what is the difference?
Coaching and therapy/counselling can be used independently or at the same time. They both can help you to construct a strong base for your life. The basic difference is that therapy/counselling helps you to untwist your past, heal troubles on an emotional level and bring closure to distressing experiences. It focuses on helping you understand the root of your problems, anxiety and distress which is impacting your everyday life.
Coaching focuses on the now. A coach does not tell you what to do or give you advice- but a mentor does! Instead, a coach works as a facilitator to assist you in moving forward to a more rewarding and stable future. Equipped towards accomplishing your set goals, growing personally and/or professionally, refining efficiency, getting the balance needed and creating a more fulfilling life. You are the expert in your own life and a coach is here to encourage and inspire you in finding the answers for yourself.
Coaches are partners and professionals. Not Like therapists, they do not diagnose or treat mental disorders.
What happens during a coaching session?
To start with, we will have a casual, informal, confidential chat in my office. I will be asking you questions that correlates to your desires and goals. We will be exploring the options and actions you can take to achieve your goal. We will also identify the barriers and difficulties that may stop you from achieving your goals and how we can beat them. My intention is to guide you to get to the place where you want to be and create the life that you desire successfully, without constantly relying on me as your coach.
The session will be tailored specifically to your needs and expectations. I incorporate NLP techniques within my coaching to ensure an even more valuable results.
I will present different tools, techniques and tasks that will assist you in creating positive habits and behaviors to reach your goals with transparency and enthusiasm.
How long are the coaching sessions?
Typically, coaches dedicate approx. 50 minutes per session. My coaching style differs as the minimum hours I do is 4 hours per session. The reason being to get you to challenge your inner voice, tackle and destroy any obstacle or boundary that is limiting you from reaching your ultimate potential at the quickest time possible.
These sessions can be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly- whatever suits your lifestyle and the time you are willing to invest in taking actions to reach your goals.
What is required from me as a client?
You must acquire a positive attitude towards the achievement of your goal. I need you to be transparent, trusting and honest within our coaching relationship. You must have the time and commitment to complete the tasks and actions that you will put yourself at the end of each session. These tasks and actions are what will push you more rapidly to your ultimate goal. The level of commitment you invest is what will impact the swiftness and magnitude to your goals. I will be there to motivate, encourage, support and guide you within a non-judgemental and confidential environment.
Is it confidential?
Yes, definitely! Not a single soul will know that we are working together unless you tell them. Details of our sessions are never discussed with anyone. Plus, there will be a confidentiality agreement signed by both sides which you will get a copy of.
When can I expect to see results?
If you’re ready to start taking action now, you’ll notice instant change. Bigger goals obviously take longer. Whatever you’re experiencing wasn’t created overnight and whatever you wish to experience will take time too. The coaching I will provide with all the techniques and tools I know in addition to your consistent action is the best way to create a long-lasting, sustainable and transformational results.
Why pick me now?
I have committed to myself to help others see this light. To guide them and help them after gaining the skills, experience and learning powerful techniques.
