During the sessions, and through dialogue, questions, exercises, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, the coach helps the client to reflect, and becomes conscious of his or her potential and motivation for change and action.
The role of the coach is to create a safe and reliable space where the client can freely express and experience ideas, thoughts and attitudes.
Obstacles are turned into opportunities in order to achieve growth, change and development that are sustainable in the long run. The same coaching process allows the client to acquire the habits of self-observation and growth, which are often incorporated permanently.
A coaching course lasts an average of between 5 and 10 sessions, sometimes more, since the process is adapted to the needs of the individual.
The sessions are usually weekly, especially at the beginning of the process (later biweekly or monthly), and last between 60 and 90 minutes.
In certain cases, we collaborate with other therapists in order to optimise the results: dieticians, osteopaths, etc.
Three key words: Self-awareness, Self-confidence, Responsibility Self-awareness:
- Awareness of what we want and why we want it.
- Awareness of our talents and our resources.
- Awareness of the route to take to reach our objective.
- Awareness of the implicit challenges of reaching our goals.
- Confidence in our capabilities and the importance of developing them.
- Confidence in our opinions and in our values.
- Confidence in the possibility of carrying out our objectives.
- To be responsible and commit ourselves to change, accepting the challenge of putting ideas into action between sessions.
Coaching in person, by Telephone or e-Coaching:
The sessions are held in person, by telephone or through Skype (Internet video conference). Between sessions, the client has the possibility of asking questions, clarifying doubts and/or sharing unexpected successes and results through e-mail, without having to wait for the next session.
The use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming:
During emotional coaching sessions, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) becomes a fundamental tool in the process. It not only allows the quality of the communication between the coach and the client to increase, but is also a tool for change, through the analysis of language (Meta-Model) and the observation of the systems and processes that the client uses to understand reality, to motivate themselves and to take action. Once the client becomes aware of this process, he or she can modify it, with a consequent change in their own beliefs, the motivation and the habits that they have decided to change.
