Why invest in Mind coaching & hypnotherapy?
When you understand your own mind – how to control your emotions, your energy, your creativity, and imagination – life becomes infinitely more enjoyable.
And that’s basically what our programs are all about. The ability to control your own mind and override any negative emotions (self-talk) or habits that seem to keep getting in your way.
Your thoughts and beliefs have a profound impact on your decisions.
Psychological studies on self-talk (the idea that what we say to ourselves matters) has shown that we don’t do things based on what happens to us. We do things based on what we THINK will happen to us.
We don’t go to work because we get paid…we go to work because we THINK we’ll get paid.
You don’t make mistakes in presentations and meetings because you just made one. You make mistakes because you just made one and you THINK you will mess up again.
Mind Coaching is about stretching forward, optimizing talents, translating great dreams and visions into pragmatic action and providing some measure of personal accountability that will keep you moving forward (even when it feels like a struggle).
Discovering how to master your emotions and your self-talk is not unrealistic. You may even be surprised how quickly your thinking becomes more agile.
You’ll soon be telling yourself that negative events are truly temporary.
If you flub the opening of your presentation, be thinking “Now my nerves are settled so I can speak with confidence.”
If you get criticized, you’ll be thinking “I can use what I just learned about my boss in my next conversation with him.”
Are you ready to make sure you view negative events as a natural, yet TEMPORARY phenomenon during your day to day?
Do you want to learn to communicate much better with that prickly colleague or difficult neighbor?
Is it time to stand your ground with your mother-in-law?
Will you tackle a fear that has been contributing to your under-performance?
Is it time to start being assertive with that ‘friend’ who always seems to get his own way.
Have you ever felt if you could properly direct your focus and concentration, you could build a better career for yourself?
Have you ever felt you could supercharge your communication skills?
Have you ever felt tiredness or stress has gotten in the way of quality time spent with your partner, children, or friends?
Have you ever wanted to tackle a big project – participating in a triathalon, for example – but not known how to keep up momentum and drive?

A good coach will need you to show up with:
- Sufficient and robust ego-strength. Coaching is not so much about nurturing, re-parenting, or dealing with problems and hurts as it is about challenging, pushing, awakening, and activating one’s best self. A competent coach will have a fierce conversation that quickly gets to the heart of things. Expect to be challenged. It takes a lot of ego-strength to face that.
- A robust and positive attitude about former mistakes. This demands a mental frame that knows that new opportunities for growth and development lie inside our perceived failures and mistakes.
- A receptive openness to feedback. It takes a healthy mindset to be able to gaze into a mirror whose reflections holds nothing back. A mirror that reflects precisely how you’re doing, coming across, and being experienced by others – even when you might not like it. Openness to feedback includes a willingness to be held accountable to what you say you want. The power of coaching lies in this accountability factor. In fact, you contract for it. A good coach will not let you off the hook, just because things are getting uncomfortable.
- A passionate commitment to one’s full development. Coaches frequently ask, “Are you willing to do anything it takes to make this goal of yours become a reality?” Your answer grants the coach the right to call your bluff and to keep having the fiercely focused conversations about what you are doing or not doing that might be selling your goals short.
An ideal coaching client is not satisfied with the status quo, and in fact, often embrace the ambiguity of the unknown for the joy of the adventure itself.
