What Is Life Coaching?
Who is Coaching For?
With respectful and caring attention, Dr. Heidi will support your desire to heal and to experience life as a whole, effective, and peaceful human being. Whether you want to start or grow your business, transform painful memories, let go of rejection, heal from past trauma, or simply feel stronger and better about yourself – Dr. Heidi is here to help. With many years of experience, and various areas of expertise, we can assist you to re-shape and re-focus your attention, and to begin moving effectively toward the life you want to live.
Human beings tend to spend a great deal of energy and attention on either regret about the past, or anticipation of the future. Neither of these allows the individual to feel truly alive. The past is gone, no longer exists, and the future doesn’t yet exist. So, if your focus is on either of these, you are pouring energy into things that aren’t real. The present moment is all you have; learning to live fully in each moment allows you to let go of everything else that would deplete you of the energy and focus you need to live a rich, full life.
What can NLP Coaching help me with?
NLP Coaching can help you with:
- Identifying and changing blocks that hold you back
- Improving self esteem and self worth
- Increasing confidence
- Overcoming past trauma
- Clearing fears and phobias
- Releasing panic and anxiety
- Overcoming depression and stuckness
- Changing unwanted behaviours and habits
- Eliminating unuseful patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour
- Finding your purpose and a pathway to get there
- Boost your personal success to do even better.
What is the difference between Coaching & Therapy?
Ultimately, not much. We define Coaching as a goal based outcome and Therapy as an interference clearing outcome. Regardless, Dr. Heidi will be using the modality of NLP with you, and this is one of the best tools for her to understand what your goal is specifically and what holds you back from achieving it. She will then spend time with you to clear the interferences and build resources that will assist you to achieve your desires. More and more, people are seeking a Coach, and there are blocks and limits holding them back. So, if you are after Coaching or Therapy – or a combination of both, you are in good hands.
I've been to counsellors, coaches and therapists before - why will this be different.
The simple answer – Dr. Heidi. Since 2000, she has been helping people and has a special knack for understanding and getting to the root cause of almost anything. With a background in Clinical Psychology, she brings a wealth of knowledge and skills. Additionally, she is an International NLP Master Trainer, Master Certified Coach with the ICF, Clinical Supervisor and is currently ranked as the worlds #17 Coach and #5 NLP Professional by Global Guru’s.
What is NLP and how does it work?
NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming, is Dr. Heidi’s tool to help understand how the language of your mind has created the patterns you run in life. We all have patterns of emotions, behaviours, beliefs and thoughts – with this understanding, she will help you to address any interferences or blocks that keep unresourceful patterns in play, while building needed resources which will assist you to achieve your goals, desires and ways of being you.
Some of the tools are simply conversational, how she asks questions and responds to what you say. Sometimes, she will use close-eyed visualisation type techniques that are designed to challenge, reframe, change and restore unconscious patterns.
How long will I need to work with Dr. Heidi?
Usually Dr. Heidi works with people for 2-8 one-hour sessions – either weekly or fortnightly. She works with people in her Sydney office as well as online (Zoom) or phone. So, no matter where you are, there is an opportunity to work with Heidi.
Can I get medicare or health insurance rebates?
Generally, no. Coaching is not a recognised modality with most insurance comapnies and Dr. Heidi is not registered for Medicare rebates.
What is the cost to work with Dr. Heidi?
For personal coaching & therapy, her rate is $300AUD per one-hour session. Please contact her directly for corporate coaching, training and speaking.
