My style is natural and relaxed. I employ key principles, which get results. My approach draws from NLP, coaching, mindfulness, my 17 years experience of working in this field, my ongoing explorations in personal development, and from my own insights.
Below you can read about some of the main aspects of my approach.
In Tall Spaghetti training and coaching sessions, there is an ambiance of care, respect, sensitivity, humanity and non-judgment. It feels safe. The style is relaxed and informal. Care is taken that you feel comfortable to reflect, participate and discuss. This enables you to explore the matter at hand with openness and honesty.
People have reported that they find the online format a really positive experience and 'just as good as in person'.
My work is very much about the inner work and that then influences the external. We need to create a calm, stable, nourished foundation - in our mind and in our feelings. Without this basis, we are on rocky ground - it is not healthy or sustainable. Self-care is an enabler for effectiveness. Investing in personal development reaps many dividends - your mindset, inner resources and capacities are greatly enhanced. Through taking care of 'the inside', you work more effortlessly, more creatively and your unique brilliance shines out.
Tall Spaghetti training and coaching helps you gain clarity. Awareness is the starting point of positive change. What patterns are we running? This can often be unconscious. Seeing habits provides freedom from them and opens up new possibilities.
We can be identified with, and carried away by, our thinking. We make things up, project, ruminate, create meaning, distort, worry, generalise, catastrophise. And then we suffer.
In becoming more aware of this trance of thinking, we become less entangled. New possibilities emerge. We can create perspectives that feel more balanced or helpful. We can cultivate healthier attitudes of mind. We can use our attention more skilfully.
We can also consider that we are not our thoughts and ground ourselves in the direct experience of the moment now.
It is a fascinating and powerful exploration. Come join me in investigating your own experience.
What are the inner mechanisms that are leading to the outcomes you are getting?
We have a 'resource pack' - the body, thoughts, our actions, and feelings. Each 'part' can influence each other 'part'. For example, the way we think affects the way we feel, which affects the body, which affects our impulses to action.
It is one interlinked system. We can use our resource pack to influence the system and to impact our outcomes. There is a stucture to experience.
For self-awareness, self-care and self-development, we need to take a look 'within'. Non-judgment, compassion and curiosity allow us to witness our own experience. This supports valuable self-knowledge and insight.
Meeting and holding experience in spacious and compassionate presence can be transformative. Through coaching and training, you can explore what this means and looks like.
In Tall Spaghetti training and coaching, the emphasis is on making a genuine, meaningful, positive difference in people's lives. It is practical and useful. I ensure that it is accessible, understandable and memorable. People can readily make real use of the ideas, tools and shifts.
You get to apply the tools ongoing as you navigate the ups and downs of work and life. People report that, over time, the techniques and perspectives become more and more embodied. They evolve into a 'way of being'.
