Changing is hard work, but can be made easier with effective strategies and expert facilitation.
The English word “facilitate” comes from the French faciliter, which means “to make easier.” As a facilitator, my job is to make changing easier for you. It will still require persistence and effort on your part, but not as much as if you were to go it alone.
Make Changes at the Unconscious Level
Most therapy and coaching tries to make changes using conscious willpower. But most of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we want to change are automatic and unconscious. Conscious willpower is a highly limited resource, and doesn’t work very well by itself to change unconscious processes. This is why coaching and therapy can often be such a struggle.
I’ve learned from some of the best in the world how to make changes at the unconscious level, so the changes stick automatically without having to force yourself or struggle excessively. Most coaches and therapists don’t know even one technique for changing unconscious processes. I’ve learned so many that my biggest struggle as a facilitator is deciding which one to use!
I’ve trained in Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) which I teach to students and other professionals. (People say I’m pretty good.) I’ve also trained in Core Transformation, Metaphors of Movement, and a variety of related modalities which I use with clients as appropriate. I prefer using techniques that work and don’t require any unusual or anti-scientific beliefs.
The Kinds of Things I Can Help You Change
Since 2003, I’ve assisted people all over the world in making many types of changes:
- Get over stage fright and social anxieties
- Start, or finish a big project you’ve been procrastinating
- Stop bad habits like eating sugar, and create good habits like exercising daily
- Resolve past hurts and painful memories
- Set and achieve challenging goals
- Relate more helpfully with others
- End inner conflict and find wholeness
- and much more…
I’ve also made a lot of changes myself (and still have room for improvement).
I don’t diagnose or treat “mental illness,” and I don’t prescribe drugs. I educate people about how to change themselves for the better.
