Wellness and Life Coaching
What is Wellness & Life Coaching?
Wellness and life coaching uses a combination of human behaviour principles, Chinese Medicine Theory, core aspects of kinesiology, and core components of NLP. Wellness and life coaching can challenge your beliefs, learned behaviours, and conditioning in order to help you shift your perspective, see the hidden order, uncover underlying blessings, and develop gratitude for what you’ve experienced. One of the primary outcomes of coaching is to promote and create a more balanced, healthy, empowered, and fulfilling life, and to implement clear and defined action steps and powerful new strategies that you can apply immediately. Wellness and life coaching can be used to help you achieve notable changes in one or more areas of your life. The seven areas of life that wellness and life coaching can assist with are as follows:
- Physical Health & Wellbeing
- Social Dynamics
- Family Dynamics
- Financial Life
- Career Life
- Spiritual Quest
What are the root causes of the challenges we face?
We are governed by our current and intergenerational conditioning, learned behaviours, and beliefs. Everything we know has been learned through our parents, culture, teachers, and connections with friends, as well as every single activity that we’ve been involved with. Most of the time we are completely unaware that the actions we take may be misaligned with our true intrinsic values. We tend to attract the same relationships over and over again, even if they’re not really what we want. We can have difficulty breaking health-related patterns that keep us in need of constant care and support, and we seem to hit one brick wall after the other, as we try to uncover our career and life purpose. This often leaves us feeling depressed, anxious, and burnt out. Frustration and a lack of clarity are two of the major obstacles that frequently hold people back. This often leads to a sense of being ‘stuck’ or ‘trapped’, with no clear idea of which actions, direction, or decisions will lead to the desired outcome. Similar to a sportsperson requiring coaching to help them achieve greater outcomes and results, we too require coaching; we sometimes need guidance and assistance to help us succeed in the way we truly want and desire.
How is coaching different to therapy?
Coaching is patient-focused. It puts you in the driver’s seat of your life and makes you accountable for where you’ve been, what you’ve experienced, where you currently are, where you want to be in the future, and how to practically get there. It is a fast-paced and intensive process that may challenge your beliefs, fears, and judgments, and help you achieve a new balance in both your mind and your body. Ultimately, the goal is to use the techniques, exercises, and tools we have available, to assist you in becoming more proficient, self- reliant, independent, emotionally regulated, and empowered in your life. Alongside the development of clearer strategies to reach your goals, your coaching will be combined with a kinesiology technique called NET (Neuro Emotional Technique), which is a brief mindfulness-based intervention facilitating stress reduction. Its implementation assists the body to release any physiological/emotional blocks and patterns that could be hindering positive outcomes. It is important to note that you will have support beyond your sessions. You will have direct access to your coach through email, text, or additional phone support to assist and maintain momentum and progress from week to week.
How long is the coaching process?
The initial coaching process usually takes 3 months. Within that period, the breakthrough work performed can have a powerful impact on the chemistry and functioning of your body, and in turn, facilitate the achievement of very realistic outcomes. It takes 90-120 days for a complete renewal of all of the red blood cells in the body. Therefore, undertaking 3-month periods of Wellness & Life Coaching enables the restoration and stabilisation of your body chemistry as you undergo the dissolution of conditioned responses, learned behaviours, and old patterns. Balancing of the mind can assist with the regulation of emotional responses to previously perceived traumas and challenges. This, in turn, can assist body functions and promote healing, leaving you with a new biochemical, neurological, and physiological baseline. Once the initial 3-month process has been completed, coaching can continue to assist with other areas of life that may require some additional support.
