What is Coaching?

Coaching is partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Coachee in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to learn further, and sometimes deeper aspects, about themselves their life, and their potential.


They are sessions to learn new skills and how to use tools that maximise personal, relational, and professional potential in the real world.

It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

The coachee is responsible for determining what is the key area of focus for any given coaching session and the coach will work to that agenda.  

If the agenda starts to move away from the outcomes that the coachee has identified, the coach will bring the coachee’s attention to this, and ultimately it is for the coachee to determine the focus.

Sessions may facilitate a connection to your own lived truths and experiences, and to potential emotions that haven't been connected with, felt, or expressed in a long time or at all, this is all okay - any and all emotions are welcome in sessions.

What is Hypnotherapy?

  • Hypnosis is a joint process between you and the therapist in which you use your imagination – alongside hypnotic skills taught by the therapist – to bring about positive emotional and behavioural changes, aided by suggestion

  • Hypnotic suggestion is a way of experiencing helpful ideas at a level deep enough to directly influence emotions and behaviour.

  • Psychological and emotional problems can be the result of negative thinking; hypnotherapy aims to encourage (“suggest”) positive ideas that lead to improvement.

  • Rather than a “trance”, hypnosis can be described as an increased ability to focus on a single idea or notion in a deeply relaxed and peaceful state.

  • Hypnosis is a skill that can be learnt – to be as effective as possible, you must be motivated, have positive expectations and allow yourself to be part of the hypnotic experience.

  • Thousands of positive experimental and clinical research studies on hypnosis have been published and it’s been recognised as an effective treatment by the British Medical Association (BMA) since the 1950s.

  • Hypnosis supports a mind-body connection that enhances an ability to be in touch with the subterrain levels of our own psyches.

  • we only use 10-12% of our conscious mind and 88-90% of our subconscious mind! 

    "Current scientific estimates are that some 95 percent of brain activity is unconscious, says Emma Young in New Scientist magazine. These include habits and patterns, automatic body function, creativity, emotions, personality, beliefs and values, cognitive biases, and long-term memory.

  • Hypnosis is not a state of sleep or unconsciousness.

  • Hypnosis is not a state of mind control. You cannot be made to do anything against your will.

  • Hypnosis is completely safe when used in a responsible and professional manner. You can’t get “stuck” in hypnosis.

  • Comedy stage hypnosis is very different to clinical hypnotherapy and should be viewed as such.

  • Hypnosis doesn’t increase the accuracy of your memory and can’t enable exact re-experiencing of events.

What is Mindfulness?

  • Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present in the current moment, aware of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations without judgment. A learned skills that enables you to observing your thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them or reacting automatically.

  • It's about paying attention to what's happening right now, rather than dwelling on the past or fretting about the future. The learned skill to step back and notice your internal experience without judgment.

  • Imagine it as gently bringing your focus back to the present moment whenever your mind wanders, allowing you to choose your responses rather than being controlled by your emotions.

What is Meditation?

Meditation is a practice where you train your mind and awareness.

  • Focus and Awareness: The core aim is to develop your ability to focus your attention and become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.

  • Quieting the Mind: It's often described as a way to quiet the mind or achieve a state of calmness, although it's not necessarily about completely stopping your thoughts.

  • Letting Go of Judgment: A key part of meditation is observing your thoughts and feelings without judgment. This allows you to see them more clearly and gain perspective.

  • Many Techniques: There are many different meditation techniques, some focusing on focusing on your breath, repeating a mantra (a calming word or phrase), or simply observing your surroundings.

Imagine your mind is a busy marketplace. Meditation is like sitting down in a quiet corner of that marketplace and observing all the activity going on without getting swept up in it.

Differences with Mindfulness
& Meditation

Think of mindfulness as a muscle. Meditation is the workout that strengthens that muscle.

The more you meditate, the easier it becomes to be mindful in everyday life.

Imagine mindfulness as being generally aware of your surroundings. Meditation is like focusing your attention on a specific object in those surroundings.

In short, mindfulness is the what (the state of being present), and meditation is the how (the practice to achieve that state).
