Why Life Coaching Works!
Is life coaching right for me? That is a question I get asked almost every week. And I can tell you with confidence that my answer is always the same; Yes! And here's why.
When you work with a life coach or business coach you are opening your mind to new ways of thinking and new perspectives that you wouldn't have on your own.
Often times we run into problems that leave us stuck and feeling out of options. A life coach will work with you to unlock your potential and help you elevate your thinking and problem solving skills. Through specific techniques you will learn how to remove negative emotions that weigh you down and effect your results. You will discover how to replace limiting thinking with innovation and creativity. And the overall quality of your life will improve; rapidly!
NLP LIFE COACHING VS. TRADITIONAL THERAPY
When you are seeking help to change your life it is important to understand how and what the process will do for you. Traditional therapy focuses on helping patients to identify the root cause of the problem but rather than providing you with clear action steps to improve your situation, you are instructed on how to cope with the symptoms. Too often this leads to patients becoming dependent on therapy while failing to overcome their issue.
NLP Life Coaching works with clients to discover 'How' the problem was created and asks 'What' and 'What if' to learn about the structure of the problem and the best methods to remove it. Instead of focusing on the past, your NLP Life Coach will teach you strategies to improve your results and start creating your future. The goal is to assist you in developing the successful behaviors and resources necessary to become The Ideal You®. After a short period of time working with life coach you will be able to produce extraordinary results on your own; time and time again!

Who can you trust when it comes to therapy Las Vegas?
I have been a life coach and therapist for almost twenty years now and one of the biggest changes I have seen in the mental health and personal development fields is the manner in which we find help.
When I started as a life coach the internet was like a 3D printer. Some people knew it existed but very few used it to conduct business or seek personal help. I used to conduct numerous speaking events or seminars each month to attract new clients and get my name out there! But the world is different today and we use different methods to connect with each other and to find the necessary help we need to be healthy and successful.
For most people, asking for help is a scary proposition. I’m sure you will agree, when someone finds the courage to admit they have a problem and they take action to seek help, you want to make sure they find it! So here is my advice to help you make the right decision in hiring your life coach or therapist.
How do I search for a therapist in Las Vegas?
Every day I speak with 5 – 10 new people who are looking for someone to help them overcome a problem or make a positive change in their lives. Each time I speak with these new people, I ask them a specific set of questions that are designed to help me best analyze their situation and propose the best method of treatment. Every time I will ask them what they searched to find me and I can honestly say that more than 80% of the people surveyed tell me that they had no idea what type of therapy to search for, so they put in the first thing that came to their mind.
This is a very important point because the type of therapist you work with will vastly change your experience and the results you will gain through the program.
I have worked with couples who were seeking marriage counseling that used these phrases to find help:
- Psychiatrist Las Vegas
- Psychologist Las Vegas
- Therapist Las Vegas
- Therapy Las Vegas
- Marriage Counseling Las Vegas
The couple admitted to me that they spent weeks speaking to psychiatrists and psychologists who didn’t specialize in marriage counseling before they realized they should have been be looking for the specific help they needed - ‘marriage counseling’. Once they did, they found several life coaches and therapists who are skilled in marriage counseling and were able to research them and make an informed decision.
When you need help be sure to search for the specific need you desire or at least search the word that best represents your problem. For example, if you are feeling nervous, have low self esteem or a lack of motivation and energy, don’t search for ‘psychiatrist las vegas’ or ‘psychologist las vegas’ instead you want to search ‘depression las vegas’ or ‘anxiety las vegas’. This will provide you with a list of life coaches and therapists who are best suited to help you with your specific problem.
What type of therapy is the best?
I get asked this question fairly often and this is my answer. I started my career on a path to open my own psychology practice. Along my journey I was blessed enough to meet some incredible individuals who have made great impact in the world; both personally and professionally. They became my mentors and friends. And as I grew and learned and continued to study, I realized that psychology was a piece of the puzzle; not the puzzle. And in order for me to make the greatest impact on my clients I would need more knowledge and tools than I could find in psychology alone. So I began a life long pursuit to research and educate myself on the best methods to produce rapid change and enhanced performance. For me those methods are NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), The Ideal You®, Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis. I have used these methods with hundreds of clients and can confidently say that I have consistently produced outstanding results again and again.
In my opinion, you should seek the help of a therapist or life coach who uses holistic methods first to treat you rather than prescribing you medicine out of the gate or putting you in a box and labeling you as a problem.
All therapy starts in your mind. Find someone to work with whom you trust and that you can see has a passion and understanding for people and communication and you will be The Ideal You® before you know it!
