At the heart of all my coaching and mentoring is NLP: neuro-linguistic programming, which can sound a little clinical to some, so let's break it down and demystify it.
Neuro simply relates to our neurology, our natural nervous system, through which we gather and process the information we receive through our five senses: sight, sounds, touch + feelings + sensations, taste and smell - and it's through these five senses that we experience the world around us to create our own reality.
Linguistic refers to language, but in a much broader sense than just words, as we all use non-verbal ways to communicate; like body language for example. We also have a sixth internal ability, which sits neatly alongside our five senses. This is where we talk to ourselves about our experiences (both real and imagined) so no, it's not just you, we all do it, to some extent or another.
Programming may sound a bit technical, but we all programme our mobile phones and Sky boxes to give us what we want, so it's not really daunting at all. Programming is about the way we do things now, and improving how we do them in the future. It brings about change to the tired and obsolete. It's like an update for your human operating system, because when was the last time you had one of those?
NLP coaching is here to help you achieve the goals you haven't achieved on your own yet.
HOW NLP CAN HELP YOU
The whole point of working with me as your coach is to create a change, and to reveal how capable you are, when you might not believe you have what it takes. You will also be given the tools to make your change happen, so be advised: this is not a passive exercise where your ego is stroked and your hand is patted sympathetically. You are capable and responsible for the changes you seek and I am here to help you achieve them.
All knowledge is power, right? So, by learning and understanding how you process what's happening to you, the more empowered you are going to be to make the life enhancing changes you need - even when you think you can't, you can.
You are not a hostage to the voice in your head. You know, that poisonous little internal dialogue that dishes out limiting beliefs as though they were fact, as it tries to keep you small and safe in a stifling comfort zone bubble, going nowhere? Yeah, well we're going to have that bully sit down and eat its own lunch for once: time's up!
From now on we're going to be working with a forwards facing mindset and replacing old limiting beliefs with shiny new empowering ones, because why stay cocooned when you're destined to fly? The world only has one of you, we need you, and we need you to be the best version of yourself you can be, so let's make that change!

Karan has taught me to view my life in a very different manner. She has given me the tools to quickly and efficiently turn a negative into a positive, whether this be work or personally related. This has helped me so much, and I feel as though I am dealing with life's challenges so differently.
This has resulted in me becoming a happier, calm, more productive person and less worrisome person.
Karan is a dedicated, hardworking, trustworthy woman, who is always there for me when I need a little advice overcoming life's obstacles. I feel very privileged to have met her and I can safely say she will continue to be the positive influence that I have needed, and will be for many more years to come.
