“As one goes through life, one learns that if you don’t paddle your own canoe, you don’t move.” – Katharine Hepburn

What is NLP & Life Coaching?

NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming was founded in the 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.


Change is without doubt hard and there is a saying that "Old Habits Die Hard". Most of us will at times suffer the habit of negative thinking which is ultimately unhealthy.  


NLP provides a model of change and various tools that can help you by identifying the ingredients of excellent performance i.e. what it is it that top athletes do that is different from less-expert people then systematically introduce these 'ingredients' into their own performance using NLP techniques.


They noticed that some therapists produced far better results with clients than others. They moved away from the mainstream questioning that had received unsatisfactory results and asked new questions that hadn't been asked before. Certain patterns emerged from this and they were able to formulate a series of principles necessary for positive change. NLP is a tool to understand how the language of our mind creates these patterns. Once you have this understanding, you can apply a variety of NLP processes to enhance, change or alter our patterns of thought, behaviour and emotion. Which can be used to:


  • Solve Problems

  • Address issues

  • Resolve conflict

  • Overcome Blocks

  • Achieve Outcomes


Life Skills Coaching


The purpose of a Life skills coach is to facilitate change within an individual who is open to learning. The ultimate goal of this coaching process with a client is to enable them to:


  • Reassess his or her current life

  • Redefine success

  • Set new goals

  • Change old habits

  • Build self-confidence and self esteem

  • Overcome problems and challenges 


The eight areas of coaching which make up and complete the 'life skills diamond' and these are as follows-


  • Financial Coaching

  • Career Coaching

  • Assertiveness Coaching

  • Time Management

  • Relationship Coaching

  • Stress Management

  • Domestic Coaching

  • Fitness Coaching


This life skills diamond is used to help fulfil the ultimate goal of the coaching process and breaks life into manageable chunks. The outcome of this is to produce a life with 'No limits' which is the essence of positive life skills and forms 'the winner's credo', the core of positive change.
