Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind and reveals those negative nagging, sabotaging thoughts which are lodged in the subconscious mind. This allows the individual to challenge and change their own negative thinking enhancing their self esteem and creating a healthier life. When the subconscious mind is accessed, new healthy beliefs can be planted bringing positive changes.
Neuro-Linguistic Processing (NLP) is a method of influencing brain behaviour (the "neuro" part of the phrase) through the use of language (the "linguistic" part) and other types of communication to enable a person to "recode" the way the brain responds to stimuli (that's the "programming") and manifest new and better behaviours. Neuro-Linguistic Programming often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change (or "programming") that is wanted.
Life Coaching involves empowering others by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives. A key aspect of life coaching is confidence. Often people that use a life coach are short of self-confidence and find themselves in a routine or rut that lacks enjoyment or excitement. A life coach essentially seeks to reinstall an individual’s faltering confidence and ensure they have it within themselves to live up to their potential.
