“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein
In life stuff unavoidably happens. It’s how we address and resolve the stuff that matters. Invariably, it is our mind, our emotions, our thoughts and our behaviors that result in life’s challenges. Things don’t happen to us, we invite them in so we can grow, become enriched, wiser and better people.
In the Transpersonal world we recognize that it is the mind that needs to be tamed. The body, the soul and the spirit have wisdom beyond our comprehension. If only we could access and harness that wisdom. Transpersonal literally means beyond (trans) the mind/ego (personal).
As a Transpersonal Coach I am both a qualified Transpersonal Counsellor (Australia) and an ICF-accredited Professional Coach (USA). It is the best of both worlds – counselling and coaching.
Whilst theoretically it would be convenient to limit a client to either counselling or coaching, client problems are seldom that neatly packaged. Often what is holding us back from attaining our goals (a coaching problem) are hidden beliefs and past unresolved issues (a counselling problem).
In a typical transpersonal coaching engagement the client’s personal story will determine where the focus will be: resolving old patterns or striving towards new goals. The client subconsciously already knows what modality is most appropriate for each session. Life has a funny way of informing us even before we connect!
At a personal level (counselling and coaching, typically via Skype):
Anger and resentment towards another (or yourself)
Anxiety over a course of action, personal or work-related
Confusion over relationships, past, present or future
Desire to attain guidance or clarity through one’s own ‘intuition’
Grief and loss, no matter what it is
Guilt or regret over some incident
Issues around sexuality or sexual identity
Support in moving to the next level of excellence
At a group level (coaching and team-building, typically on site):
Facilitating attaining common ground on complex issues
Resolving organizational conflict
Team-building through creating a Culture of Collaboration and Respect
If any of the above resonate, let’s connect for a no-charge exploratory session of up to 30 minutes. You may be surprised at what insights present themselves in this short time. You have nothing to lose, except that which no longer serves you (or your organization).
