NLP & Life Coaching
Neuro-Liguistic Programming and Coaching
Most coaches will use elements of NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The term NLP can sound intimidating, but in simple terms it's a way of changing the way we think, act and feel, partly by changing the language we use.
Essentially, we learn patterns of behaviour through our life experiences, and these patterns don't always serve us well. So by changing these behavioural patterns, this can make it easier for us to reach our goals.
There are many benefits to having a regular session with a coach. For a start, you will have someone there who can listen to you and ask you the right questions to help you to find the answers that you need.
You'll feel more able to get in touch with your own values and beliefs, helping you to set achievable goals and move forward. You may also find that you benefit from a boost in confidence as you start to use different language and begin to think and feel differently.
What can NLP Coaching help with?
This kind of coaching can help with:
Achieving and exceeding personal and professional goals
Supporting and empowering positive changes
Business, career and corporate achievements
Sports and athletic performance
Why go to an NLP Coach?
If you feel like you lack direction, or perhaps you know what you want to do but you struggle for motivation, then coaching is a good way to start making progress.
You will learn how to manage the way you feel and use the power of your mind to overcome things that are holding you back. It may be that certain situations, places and things generate negative associations for you, and that by tackling these you are able to take a step forward.
What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is an interactive process.
A coach supports you to make a change, learn something new or achieve goals.
This can happen through conversations and other creative techniques and tools.
It can take place face-to-face, on a walk & talk, over the phone or online.
The aim here is to support you in making the progress in an area of your life that you would like to make changes to or to overcome a problem that you are struggling with.
How it works and the benefits for you.
A life coach believes that you have already the answers you need inside of you.
The role of the life coach is to help you find your own answers.
The interactive process includes for example asking specific questions, listening in an active way, observing what is happening and reflecting back to you what is going on.
With this process you can gain greater awareness of yourself and understand more why you are in your current situation and what could make you move forward.
A life coach holds space in a non judgemental way with focus on exactly what you need in any moment and this enables you to find the answers that you need to make next steps.
The benefits of working with a life coach is that you dedicate time and energy to your own development and this in itself improves your confidence and trust in yourself.
A life coach can help you to get clarity and direction in your life.
If you want to make a change, but you don't know how, a life coach can support you how to understand your current situation and what is required to change it.
Life coaching can keep you on track and make you accountable to implement steps.
You can learn new skills for your daily life and cope better with stress or any ongoing problems that you face.
The only thing required to access life coaching is a commitment from you to the process and to being open and honest with your life coach.
Life coaching can literally change your life, no matter what changes you desire.
Here at the Integral Health Center we have our practitioner Franziska Cecchetti-Pretsch who is trained as a Life Coach, but also as a Social Worker and as an Advanced Facilitator of Systemic Constellations.
This means that she is able to not only to support you in making changes and finding next steps in life, but she also has the professional understanding of mental health issues, traumas or addictions and can support you with these too.
She can also support you with any family issues that are causing you stress and tension in your family or your family of origin. See also the section Systemic Constellations on this website.
