So what’s life design?
It’s you taking a journey with a companion who has your best interests at heart. Me! It’s for changing what holds you back in your life, and growing what’s stayed just ideas or yearnings.
It’s personal and professional development that draws on the rich fields–among other things–of psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, neuropsychology, biology, anthropology, art, literature, poetry, spirituality, personal coaching, business, and organisational development. It’s more than mentoring or teaching–it’s inspirational. It helps you reveal what you’re longing for, identifies barriers, and opens a dynamic way forward to the life you want to live.
I simply don’t believe your uniqueness is honoured by a cookie-cutter plan towards your desires. We find our way thoughtfully and carefully as we go along, deciding what to do next by responding to what’s best for you. I choose guidance tools that fit you at each stage of your progress. They might include conversation; hypnotherapy; art, writing and photography experiences to expand the way you ‘see’ (you don’t know what you don’t know until you reveal it!); storytelling; mind repatterning that may include NLP; mind mapping; body awareness; nature experiences (because we’re still animals who need close contact with nature); mindfulness; deeper awareness of the effects of early patterning and of the effects of clamorous advertising and the pace of the 21st century; learning to get quiet; learning to simplify and to love it and learning to simply … be.
I’m well-qualified, well-trained and experienced. I know how to help you gain new insights into your own thinking and behaviours and to help move you to change and solutions. Click the link to read what clients are saying …
Who can it help?
This work can help just about anyone. You’ll have a profound sense of achievement when you look back at your growth over the time we’ve worked together.
What do you get from the process?
There’s something special about working one-on-one. You’ll get to where you want to be faster working with a guide than without. I help open you up to previously unseen possibilities that are in line with your own natural talents and inclinations. I challenge your assumptions about you and about life. I help you prioritise your objectives, and keep you accountable as you develop them. And keep you on the straight and narrow at your own comfort level as you evolve unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns. I track your progress from session to session, and send you practice and reflection questions between sessions to sharpen your focus. And I know when and how to shift course when you need to.
Is it for you?
If you’re struggling with something, and/or have a deep desire to learn about yourself and to change your life, and have the passion and commitment to do the work, yes, it is! It’s for passionate people who want more from their personal and business lives.
Outcomes of life design
When you truly commit and take action in the process of change, your inner change does manifest in different actions and ways of being in your outer world. You’ll be pleased with how you’ve learned to appreciate yourself, and you’ll be more self-assured. You’ll have clear boundaries that align with your values, so you’ll engage more effectively and powerfully with people, and in situations that you allowed to deplete you in the past. You decide on achievable goals and act on them purposefully. You choose relationships based on deep mutuality. You’ll most likely feel lighter, more spacious, more confident, more wholehearted.
