Coaching with Neuroscience

Coaching is a process that has a structure and flow and is supported by skills, tools and techniques. It is about two equal humans coming together to work on the client’s agenda or aspirations. It uses all of the best aspects of coaching and incorporates all of the new science of whole system human behaviour. It has the primary objective of furthering the coach and client’s potential for impact and growth. It is not counselling as we do not go into the past or into emotional problems that may need specific support outside of the coaching environment. Coaching with neuroscience is designed to ensure that you feel fully understood and are provided with a professional coaching environment that will allow and encourage you to thrive. Professional coaches support clients to set goals, make decisions, take actions, and more fully use their natural skills and abilities. Self-confidence is an attitude about your skills and abilities. It means you accept and trust yourself and have a sense of

Online and Telephone Counselling - An Introduction

Online and Telephone Counselling follows the same fundamental principles as face-to-face counselling. The confidentiality and security of your therapy remains central to all parts of the process. You may find the process of communicating from your own protected safe space very helpful in itself. Some clients say they actually find it easier to talk about some things when they're not the in the same room as their therapist (although this may not be the case for everyone). Some people feel more at ease with speaking in their own familiar surroundings and prefer this way of working. Some clients prefer telephone counselling and they may feel it easier to speak when they are not being seen. It also saves time with not having to travel to the counselling practice. Preparing for your online counselling session Plan your session for a time when you know you can have privacy. Ideally find a quiet comfortable private room away from any distractions so that you do not need to worry about

Three ways to happiness

There are many ways of understanding human well-being, but perhaps the most simple and useful is to think in terms three different approaches. In other words, if you want to find happiness , there are three different routes you can take.  First of all, there is doing. There are certain activities you can engage in that are highly likely to bring you well-being. You can have contact with nature , for example. You can practice altruism , kindness, and generousity to the people around you. You can exercise, spend more time socializing, and ensure there are activities in your life that will provide you with "flow"—the state of intense absorption, which comes when we engage with challenging and stimulating activities. You can also try to ensure there are goals in your life to engage you and for you to work toward. In this way, the path of doing is clearly a very effective way of bringing well-being into your life.  Secondly, there is thinking. You can bring more well-being int

My Declaration of Self esteem

I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard tha
