Frequently Asked Questions
Life Coaching is the process of assisting an individual or group to achieve a certain set of outcomes or goals, thereby empowering them to create the lives they want.
My coaching model and techniques are a refinement and culmination of the latest studies in Neural Science, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Behavioural Science, Quantum Physics, Hypnosis and several life coaching models. This scientific yet holistic approach. which provides an empowering framework for instant and lasting change, has become the new standard for life coaching.
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing the human experience. It describes the fundamental dynamics of how the mind (neuro), language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour, and therefore; results in life. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, the language determines how we interface and communicate with ourselves and others and our programming or conditioning determines the kind of models of the world we create. Simply put, NLP is the study of human excellence. This includes the way people of excellence take in information from the world, how they describe it to themselves with their senses, filter it with their beliefs and values, and act on the result. NLP studies the relationships between a person and their behaviour and works in the subconscious mind to de-install disempowering behaviour patterns and install new excellent ones. Therefore; NLP can be summed up as the art of accurately and generatively effecting instant change through unconscious discovery and uptake.
NLP coaching works on the subconscious mind where real and instant change happens while traditional coaching works on the conscious mind which often takes ages to accept and assimilate the required change.
All coaching sessions last approximately 50 -55 minutes.
The length of your coaching program, which is the number of sessions you will be required to attend, will depend on your presenting issues and your chosen program.
Yes: hypnosis will affect your mind. However, the change will be positive and never negative. There is absolutely nothing to be fearful about. Hypnosis is gentle and relaxing. It is nothing like the Hollywood TV shows you’ve seen where people are made to perform funny and stupid things. You will remain aware and in control at all times. Hypnotherapy works with the power of suggestion deep in the subconscious parts of your mind to bring you the change you want. At the end of your session, you will feel relaxed, lighter, happy, motivated and empowered. It works instantly and brings lasting change.
Absolutely! Hypnosis is one of the tools God used in many instances to bring deep and lasting change to people. God used a hypnotic trance to effect instant and lasting change on the mind-sets of apostles, prophets and ordinary people alike. For instance; to transform apostle Peter’s entrenched racist prejudice, God used hypnosis to speak directly to his unconscious mind, thereby bypassing his problematic and stubborn conscious mind to bring about instant change of attitude. For biblical reference, please see: Acts 10:10-16 & Acts 22:17. The bible mentions that “as a person thinks in his heart, so is he” and Romans 12:2, espouses mind-set renewal and hypnosis is one effective tools that can be used to achieve that change.

Hypnosis is a mind healing process that involves the induction of a state of deep relaxation which is called a trance. When in this state, the person is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating only on the hypnotist’s voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind revealed. While in this state, the therapist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations, seeds of which are firmly planted, which become a foundation for new behaviour patterns. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, beliefs, habits, phobias, negative thinking & suppressed emotions to be overcome.
Hypnosis is one of most powerful and effective of all the subconscious interventions because it works deep down in the arena of the mind that controls all your behaviour and therefore results. It is the difference that makes the difference. All other work done in the conscious part of the mind requires a lot of cumbersome and conscious effort on your part, which often doesn’t work because most people often give up quickly.
While relaxing in a comfortable chair, you will be led into an easy and very pleasant relaxation process called the induction and then the process will start where you will be led deeper into your subconscious mind where suggestions will be made by your therapist. The process is completely safe and comfortable. You will remain in complete control of all your faculties and can stop the process at anytime.
When working with the subconscious mind, the inward results are immediate. However, there are other factors such as the clients’ rate of integrating new behaviours, applying learnt principles and taking necessary actions that will determine how soon the desired material results will manifest.
If the client feels that despite their full co-operation with the process, they did not receive the mind-set change they desired, they will receive a refund. However, I’d like to add that this has never happened before in the history of my practice as a coach. All my clients consistently agree that they always receive much more than they paid for.
