LIFE COACHING APPROACHES
As a life coach in Singapore who believes in working not just on our mental and emotional mastery, I believe in using strategies, tools and techniques to help my clients get out of their own way.
Here are some of my life coaching approaches:
Strategic Intervention (SI)
What is Strategic Intervention?
The term “Strategic Intervention” (SI) was coined by Anthony Robbins, one of the highest paid peak performance and life coach, Cloe Madanes, a renowned family therapist and Mark Peysha to describe their change work. Strategic Intervention is an interdisciplinary framework and movement, extracted from the most practical and highly effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organisational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, game theory and others.
Tony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha and Magali Peysha are the founders of Strategic Intervention Life Coaching. They have been powerfully influenced by the great insights and works of Victor Frankl and Milton Erickson’s creative breakthroughs in human intervention.
Strategic Intervention is also grounded in the work of the Gregory Bateson group at the Mental Research Institute, which in the late 1950’s originated the new paradigm of interactional and systemic studies, which became a watershed in the development of disciplines such as game theory, cybernetics, neurolinguistics, organisational psychology, management psychology, and dozens of other systemic disciplines.
Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi are examples of masterful Strategic Interventionists who transcend the particularities of religion, culture, institution.
The goal of Strategic Intervention is to integrate the core insights of these traditions into a method of practical strategic action, creating a positive and lasting change.
SI encompasses strategies that span from the belief systems and emotional patterns within an individual, to individual relationships, to group dynamics, to organizational and cultural interventions. A trained SI life coach navigates these different arenas with ease.
Benefits Of Strategic Intervention For Transformation Life Coaching:
- Provide simple understanding and practical processes that deliver more benefit for less effort and time, cutting down long-term psychotherapy sessions which in most cases lasted for years if not for a lifetime, resulting in tens of thousands dollars cost savings for clients.
- Allowing you to have more immediate breakthroughs in minutes rather than days, months or years, thus, increasing your motivation to keep achieving your goals consistently.
- Allowing you to get unstuck in your emotional struggle, aligning your heart and brain so it will stop creating conflicts, but to work in unison for your total well being and success.
- Creates a more lasting change in your life.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Created by Dr Richard Bandler and Dr John Grinder, Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is like learning the language of your own mind. It looks into the habits of mind, emotional habits of conditioning.
Neuro = your neurology
Linguistic = the language you use
Programming = how your neural language functions and influence your behaviour.
Neuro-linguistic programming uses perceptual, behavioural and communication techniques to make it easier for you to change your thoughts and behaviour to achieve your desired outcome.
NLP techniques is based on a principle that you already have all the resources and capabilities within you, and you have the ability to choose an emotional or mental state, all you need is to be aware of it so you can pull it out whenever you want.
What would it mean to you when you can automatically access any emotional state you choose?
To feel confident, enthusiastic, inspired, motivated, loving, powerful, strong, anytime you want it? A trained NLP Life Coach or NLP Peak Performance Coach will be able to impart these skillset to you easily.
Benefits Of NLP For Life Coaching:
- Improved communication, cut down communication breakdowns at every level.
- Understand yourself and others better through increased ability to empathise and understand people’s choices, beliefs, values and actions that strengthen or breaks relationships.
- Empowers you to stop sabotaging your life with ‘inappropriate’ past programming, to use your subconscious mind to attract good opportunities, good people into your life.
- Change behaviours, thinking and beliefs
- Replicate excellence
- Acquired the ability to see the world beyond what meets your eye
- Master your own emotions / moods or thoughts so you can handle your challenges more resourcefully and effectively
- Motivate yourself and others with ease – be your own life coach and coach others
Time Line Therapy®
Developed by Dr. Tad James, Time Line Therapy® (TLT) is a powerful therapeutic process that has evolved from hypnosis and NLP.
Time Line Therapy® techniques allow you to work on the unconscious level, because people don’t change consciously.
TLT is one of the most powerful reprogramming process that releases the effects of negative experiences and helps you let go of past influences, therefore allowing you to move forward and achieve your goals for the future.
It works for anyone who struggle with emotional pain such as loss of loved ones, divorce, death, bullying, abuse, or other significant emotional events.
Example of painful emotions that takes away your emotional control are:
- Guilt / remorse
Benefits Of Time Line Therapy For Life Coaching:
- To let go of Negative Emotions from the past
- To let go of Limiting Decisions from the past
- Pull out the weeds from the root cause event to now
- Change ‘inappropriate’ programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
- Gain emotional control over your life
- Done in a safe zone, does not require you to tell the details of your past story that evoke painful memories
- Focuses on what you can learn from those events and use what you learn as a resource for the future.
- Create your future the way you want it.
Time Line Therapy® release and clear chains of an emotion rather than one at a time as most other emotional release techniques do. Eg. If you have fear issues, TLT techniques facilitate you to release and potentially clear ALL fear from the past and not just the fear attached to one event.
Hence you clear your fear from the roots, you experience lasting results.
TLT is not for people who just want to bury past hurts and covering up emotional flareups that continue to unconsciously sabotage their life.
Mind-body medicine and PNI (psychoneuroimmunology) studies explains that the effects of unresolved negative emotions could have detrimental affect on the physical health and can lead to the development of symptoms and illness in the body.
How you perceive stress and respond to it is influenced by your unresolved emotional issues and can often increase the intensity of the stressful experience.
One great advantages of the Time Line Therapy™ is that instead of talking about the problem week after week and revive the pain like in counselling, the clients get to do something about it with minimum discomfort.
Time Line Therapy® techniques and practical processes cuts down long-term psychotherapy sessions much quicker than what is currently called “brief therapy”, which takes a minimum of 10 – 20 sessions, resulting in huge cost savings for client.
It produces long-lasting transformation and allow you to feel liberated from your past baggages, feel lighter and be able to take on the present and future challenges as it is.
TLT also enables you to clear limiting beliefs that often leave you stuck in the past and stops you from creating the life you love.
Limiting decisions such as “I can’t do this”, “I’m not good enough”, or “Nobody love me” limits your ability to create strategies and take actions towards your desired outcome.
Whether it is negative emotions or limiting beliefs, it influences the quality of your life dramatically.
Is a form of therapy used to help with problems such as anxiety, stress, fear, pain, trauma and so on.
It is often misunderstood because of the influence of the TV shows and movies. Some people think that it is a woo-woo mind control technique, that the practitioner will be able to make people do things that they are NOT Willing to do, such as dance like a pig or speak like a chicken. They think that hypnosis is manipulative because it makes us loss our consciousness. That’s what the movies show us.
The actual truth is, we are physically most relaxed and mentally aware when we are at a state of hypnosis and hence, nobody can make us do things that are against our wish.
During the hypnotherapy session, you will be guided through a process to induce a trance-like state that helps you focus your minds, so that you can respond more readily to suggestions, and become deeply relaxed.
From this state of deep calm and relaxation, you would be able to dive deep into your subconscious mind, discover the answers that are buried deep within and resolve the issues that are getting in your way.
Alfred A. Barrios, a researcher, found that hypnotherapy had a massive 93% success rate after only 6 sessions compared to only a 72% success rate with behavioral therapy (after 22 sessions on average), and only 38% success rate with psychotherapy (after an average of 600 sessions).
Benefits Of Hypnotherapy For Life Coaching:
- Changing bad habits, inappropriate behavioural or thought patterns in much lesser time then the conventional behavioural therapy or psychotherapy.
- Reduce or eliminate sleeping problems, insomnia, anxiety, post traumatic stress, etc.
