Life Coaching and NLP


What is Life Coaching?

In comparison to my main role as a CHEK Practitioner where I am a consultant and I tell you what to do or how to do it, the role of a Life Coach is someone who does NOT tell you what to do. A Life Coach asks lots of questions using NLP techniques to challenge a person’s thoughts and belief systems to encourage them to think outside of the box and of different scenarios that could help that person achieve their personal and professional goals. This is a specialised field of work.

What is NLP?

‘Neuro’ = neurology (your central nervous system); ‘Linguistic’ means language. ‘Programming’ means ‘patterns’ we run both consciously and unconsciously.

NLP was created in the 1970s in California USA, founded by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. Setting out to ‘model excellence’ they learned how some the best communicators in the world got their results, and packaged what they learned as ‘NLP’ – a set of models that will transform your world.

Many people find learning NLP enables them to communicate more effectively in all situations, with applications areas include coaching, therapy, human resources, and improving many areas of your life.

I use NLP techniques/ interventions within all my coaching, but specifically within Life Coaching sessions.

How Can Life Coaching Help Me?

  • We will work together to set up positive changes revolving around your health, relationships, career, finances, emotions and spirituality.
  • We will identify your blockages, increase your clarity, whilst giving you a structure to keep you motivated and accountable throughout the journey.
  • We will identify your goals and specifically focus on one, using a system called ‘I.M. S.M.A.R.T’.
  • We will use NLP Techniques (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to help you loosen the grip on certain negative beliefs you have preventing you from attaining your goals.
  • I have 11 structured Life Coaching sessions that I use from the below courses mentioned, that will take approximately 15 hours for us to complete.
  • We can do single unstructured sessions that focus on an area of your life or something troubling you.

I’ve completed 2 certifications with a Sydney based company called Your Future Now. An NLP course called Excellence Now and a Life Coaching course called Coach Now.
