Bullies, Bullied, Bullying

What is Bullying?

I work with bullies and bullied.

Take a recent example of a teenager who was being publically humiliated on social media after posting a live singing performance at a local talent competition. 

The mum removed the post from social media citing ‘thumbs down and online judgements/jibes’ as evidence of bullying

Thinking

Too many thoughts or too little attention?

It is said that we think an average of 70,000 thoughts a day, and most of them are simply habitual. 

Thoughts are the electro-chemical brain signals that make your brain:

* efficient – you don’t have to think about thinking.

* effective – you can select the most useful thoughts available to support your next move.

Copying Smartness

Discover how (rescue dog) Molly learned important skills by copying her new brother. Molly teaches us smart ways to improve in areas we are not yet good at. Great advice for 7 – 14 year olds who worry about being not good enough at something in particular.

Troubling Thoughts

Most people know what it’s like to feel afraid of pop up (intrusive) thoughts or even nightmares.


Glorious technicolour and surround sound mind-menacing tricks can loop inside our minds for what seems like an eternity. And because brains can’t distinguish between imagination and sensory based reality, we can easily react with survival-based brain chemistry.

Sensory Processing

senses2Making distinctions through your 5 SENSES – what you see, hear, touch, smell, taste.

The quality of what we call ‘sensory processing’ is really important to how you think, feel and behave because throughout our lives, we build and modify sensory codes inside our minds that help us to navigate the world. It’s how we build our map of the world – things to avoid and things to move towards. Some people’s mental maps enable them to be courageous and bold (e.g. explorers) while other people’s mental maps leave them scared and afraid (e.g. sleeping all day).

My job is to help people build strong robust mental mapswith codes that bring success, happiness and fulfillment. Does that make sense to you?

Stanley Tool Kit

 

Stanley arrived for his first coaching session as a miserable, middle aged, middle manager with a mind full of dread at the thought of going into the office to work each day.
Breakfasts were a torture ground of intense imagination where, he visualised each day ahead as a nightmare to avoid. Unsurprisingly most days in the office delivered much of what he feared, thus confirming his thinking bias. He felt hopeless.

NLP First Aid

As first ‘mum’ into the emergency room following a car crash involving my son and his two mates, I was fortunately able to quickly know that (despite blood and bruising) my son was going to be OK. However it was also apparent that one of the other boys (Chris) was in quite a bad way.
