Calm Discussions, Cool Heads

Couples, whether romantic or those working with others in partnerships and other kinds of relationship dyads often need skills and tips on how to enter a discussion, and the best strategies for keeping it calm and ultimately successful. While the goal might be to be heard, make a point, right a wrong or solve a problem, many conversations devolve into screaming matches or people end up blowing things up out of frustration, rage or an inability to say "I can't do this right now." At this point, everyone is nowhere. This may be especially helpful as the holidays are just around the corner, which means stress, stress and a sprinkle (or large dose) of family and workplace trauma and drama. Here are some tips on how to keep important discussions from spiraling out of control.

So you've tried life coaching, but find your "inner rebel" surfaces more than you'd like and sabotages your progress? If you're looking for a way to get out of your own way and super-charge your coaching sessions, you might consider adding EMDR Treatment to your coaching menu. It can be especially effective when used in leadership and executive coaching, but it does require a certain openness and willingness to try something "out of the box."

I've had good success working with my coaching clients weaving EMDR into our work together. My experience has been that personal coaching + EMDR truly is the "power team" -- the combination that can boost coaching to the next level -- bullseye achieved!

Managing Your Fears: Rejection, Failure And Success

Does anxiety, excessive worry, self-doubt and fear keep you trapped? The subject of fear comes up often in psychotherapy sessions and manifests in a range of behaviors from complete paralysis to counter-phobic reactions. Fear and a certain amount of anxiety can be your friend when the fear of a particular outcome becomes a motivating factor. For example, imagining the fear of failure is the spark that helps some people perform to their potential. 

This also comes at a cost when we use guilt, shame and fear as a way to launch ourselves towards a goal. Don't be quick to use fear as a motivating factor. Fear is heavy, dense energy. It's best to stay focused on the positive outcome and focus on what you actually want for yourself and your life. That said, don't sweep it under the rug. It's likely to come out in some other way messy way. Learning to identify your fears can be incredibly liberating. The act of naming something takes away its power. I'm afraid of this or that helps remove
