We Are Not Broken
I have always been fascinated in understanding how the human mind works.
Through listening to the people around me and observing the decisions that shape their lives, it became apparent to me that some unconscious processes have a significant influence on our thoughts, feelings and actions and prevent us from making sustainable change.
That deep personal quest led me to study neuro-coaching and Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT). Both modalities are rooted in contemporary neuroscience. They are solutions-focused and strengths-based approaches, facilitating quick and lasting change.
Shaping our neural pathways
What I first learnt about the mind, in a nutshell, is that we are not broken.
Our cultural portal, our upbringing, the imprints from our relationships with our parents, teachers, friends, and our past experiences, create unconscious thoughts patterns, construct our emotions and shape our neural pathways.
Negative beliefs are weaved into our brains and reinforce our behaviour. We may be stuck in the unconscious or conscious narratives of the past that have created our sense of self. Sometimes, we lose the ability to make decisions. We worry about the future. We find it challenging to be present.
Most of the time, we react to unconscious perceptions without understanding our reactions. As a result, we go through life, experiencing the same feelings of anxiety, unworthiness, self-doubt and repeating the same self-sabotaging responses or behaviours. This might explain why our new year’s resolutions don’t work or are not sustained. Could this explain why we can't get rid of the extra kilos that seem to hold tight on our hips? Or why we seem to encounter the same issues with all of our relationships?
Our brain can change
The good news is that we are not our brain, our brain can change.
Ample research in neuroscience focuses on how our interactions and experiences influence how our brain works. This concept of brain change, referred to as neuroplasticity, supports the idea that our brains, and so our minds, remain adaptable throughout our lifespan.
We can also influence changes in gene expression that alter the strength of synaptic connections. With an in-depth understanding of the principles of neuroscience on how the mind works, it is possible to facilitate change and shape new positive neural pathways.
Combining modalities such as deep-level coaching, visualisation, hypnotherapy and RTT, I can support my clients to unblock negative emotions and rewrite their neural pathways.
Within a two hours session, my clients:
uncover the meaning and interpretations of events, which are the root causes of their issue/s;
understand how they have created the issue for themselves; and
let go of the negative narratives weaved into their subconscious mind.
After a single RTT session with one of my clients, who was suffering from high levels of anxiety, I received this thank you message:
“I feel very light and happy and full of joy today; it feels cathartic. I feel like I’ve been given a wonderful gift, thank you! I really feel amazing, it’s hard to put into words. Very powerful healing.”
To support my clients in making long-term sustainable change, I also create a personalised audio recording that integrates their new beliefs and rewrite new pathways in their mind.
With these tools, they are able to elicit rapid and lasting sustainable change in their thinking, feelings, behaviours and gain a stronger confident sense of self. They learn to appreciate themselves more and discover the true meaning of joie de vivre.
