This Is How Our Coaching Relationship Begins
Recently, I have had a lot of people ask what my coaching is like. Explaining an experience of coaching is like trying to explain what it feels like to be on a roller coaster or to have sex; the words may describe it, but it is impossible to fully capture those visceral experiences. The best way is to experience it for yourself.
This will hopefully give you a sense of it:
Years ago I started learning NLP and Hypnosis. I used them to change things for myself and learnt a lot about how the mind and body work. They were fantastic but they were also limiting. They relied on techniques; so it was about my ability to facilitate a technique to impact someone and change their lives; it was about the technique changing their life and that, for me, was very, very limiting.
Other people may think differently but this was my experience of those disciplines.
About a year and a half ago I was introduced to something called “Deep Coaching”; now, this is very much about YOU changing yourself: changing your circumstances, changing what is going on inside of you to create the life that you want.
In the past year and a half I have not only faced more fears than ever before but I have achieved far more than I thought possible as a result of deep coaching and am now free to create the life of my choosing and I still feel like I am only just beginning!
With the people that I coach, it works like this:
You may have found me through one of my articles or videos. If you have, then you will have read/seen an insight that I have shared; something that has changed my life and the lives of all the people I have coached. If so, go and experiment with that and find out for yourself how it can impact your life; if you do, that will give you a head start for when we speak.
The conversation usually starts by email (at email@example.com) or through facebook or linked in. You tell me what you want, what’s holding you back and I will challenge you on something or offer a different perspective; something that you can try out for yourself; to do something different.
If we are connecting well, then I’ll offer you a voice conversation. I coach people all over the world and so that will usually be by skype. We will spend an hour to 2 hours going into what you want, what fears you may have, what has been stopping you and what you can do about it.
Be prepared for that conversation to be life changing, because it takes just one insight; one thing that you can see differently for you to go out and do something different. One of my favourite phrases is:
“Change how you see the world and the world changes”
I know this to be true as I have experienced it many times myself through a single conversation and I have lead many others through that too; many, many times. So, be ready!
It is also a try out; for me to see if I am excited to work with you; to find out if you are receptive to my coaching (because my coaching is not for everyone) and for you to have an experience of my coaching so that if I offer you a coaching programme you know what it like to be coached by me and your life has already started to change.
If I offer you a programme you can say yes or you can say no; the insights that you have discovered and the things you are already doing to change your life in some way will be with you forever. That is good by me.
Often I have one conversation with someone and we are done. They are able to go out and create everything they want in their life from that single conversation and, for me, that is pretty damn amazing in itself!
So, that’s how our coaching relationship could begin.
If anything in this post intrigues you, if you have fears that are holding you back or if you have a dream that seems far fetched or many years in the future, message me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on facebook or linked in and let’s see what we can create together.
