Jeremy Hill talks to founder, Nick Bolton, about coaching life after retirement
The importance of the unconscious mind in NLP
In the NLP world, the unconscious mind refers to everything that is not under immediate conscious awareness or control. For example, you don’t consciously ask your heart to beat; or you don’t remember consciously to breathe every few seconds; Or to engage your digestive system after every meal. All those body functions are therefore controlled by your unconscious mind.
In the same way that the unconscious mind is in charge of regulating our bodily functions, another of its role is to filter the two billion pieces of information that come through our senses every day so we don’t feel overloaded (by the way, I haven’t counted them personally but it’s a lot of information!). It also stores and organizes our memories and creates our emotions. Have you ever noticed that when you feel an emotion, You don’t actually choose to have that emotion; it actually feels like it just happened to you? That’s a sure sign that your unconscious is at play. I often hear clients telling me they feel guilty to have some particular emotions, like anger or fear. But how can it be their fault if they have no conscious involvement in it? Even with that simple realisation, understanding the respective roles of the conscious and unconscious mind can create very powerful changes in clients. Read moreFiled Under Transformational Coaching

Why consistency is the best way to achievement and motivation
When people start their journey as a coach I am sure they are often not aware of the challenges they will face as they move forward. When you choose to become self-employed there are so many new parts to your business over and above the actual coaching itself. And it can seem formidable.
I had an experience lately that reminded me of what we need in order to achieve things and stay motivated in life and I would like to share it with you.
It’s worth daying straight off that I am being treated for cancer. Why should I mention this…because it changed my perspective and life tremendously. I had been very low on physical energy the weeks and months before and my motivation was down.
I needed a break. Read moreFiled Under Transformational Coaching
