Life Coaching
The Benefits of Life Coaching & NLP Regardless of whether or not you are clear what you want, life coaching and NLP can define your goals and steer you on the correct course (If you don't know where you are headed, how will you get there?) Life Coaching gives you the opportunity to review all the areas of your life. It allows you the time to focus on the parts that may need more attention -- relationships, work, health, friendships, hobbies or your personal development and spirituality NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques are used alongside coaching to discover both how you think, and how you can transform your thinking to that which is more positive. NLP can help you to achieve success, enrich relationships, improve confidence and overcome fears. When we know how we are communicating to ourselves and to others, then we are half way to achieving more positive outcomes Life coaching allows you the freedom to speak in safety and confidence, without any fear of judgement or criticism. You will find out what works for you, without anyone telling you what you 'should do'. After all, it's your life and you know what is best for you As a fully qualified life coach, Viv will lead you to a place where you are able to follow your intuition, working out what's best for you. Many clients find themselves talking about things that they have bottled up for years, and the feeling of relief and letting go of unwanted fears, thoughts and feelings is a huge release. Once we let go of the old we can bring in the new and focus on a brighter more positive future and one that makes you smile Life Coaching & NLP can assist you in breaking negative belief patterns and set new and challenging goals for yourself. Whatever your ambitions, life coaching motivates you to make changes. It will get you from where you are to where you want to be in small, realistic and manageable that you don't fall at the first hurdle Positive life long and lasting changes can be achieved in as little as 6 sessions Making the decision to see Viv could literally change your life ‘All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them’ Walt Disney Weight Reduction Programme

  • The complete programme lasts 7 weeks
