7 Step Limiting Beliefs Exercise - What's in a Label?

Looking at our ‘labels’ is a great way to begin exploring the concept of limiting beliefs with our clients because it’s often our labels that get in the way of us making change. This limiting beliefs exercise helps our clients review their labels – and see firsthand how their labels may be holding them back.

What do I mean by labels? Well, they’re simply descriptive terms used to describe us and usually have judgements associated with them. For example they can be ‘negative’ (I’m the Office Bitch or Sleazeball) or more ‘positive’ (I’m the Office Mom or Geek). We may Read More…

Beware of Labels - How They Turn into Limiting Beliefs!

Often when working with clients we come across limiting beliefs that keep them from moving forwards – and one form these limiting beliefs can take is a label.

A label is simply a descriptive term we call ourselves or others. And whilst this seems harmless enough, these labels can also create a ‘box’ people feel uncomfortable stretching out of.

We get labelled starting at an early age by our family, friends and teachers. Well meaning or otherwise, things get repeated over and over about our appearance, personality, how we work, our style or general behaviour – until they appear Read More…

Coaching Questions 101: 5 Ways to Identify and Work through Your Clients' Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs are often so much a part of us that we don’t even realise they’re there. In fact, asking a client what their limiting beliefs are could be likened to the metaphor of asking a fish for a glass of water: It’s so much a part of them that they don’t see it.

How to Help Clients Handle Rejection Beautifully - 5 Reframes to Really Give Them Something to Think About!

Why the big deal with rejection? If you think about it, when someone is rejected nothing actually changes: Before your client asked someone out they had no date, and after they have been ‘rejected’ they still have no date.

As coaches, we know the power of perception and belief, but many of our clients do not. Over the years I have come to deeply realize that what ultimately drives us is not logic or ‘reality’ – but how we think and feel about things. Even what’s right in front of our eyes is interpreted according to our beliefs about ourselves Read More…

What are Cognitive Distortions - And What You Need to Know About Them!

Cognitive Distortions are where we focus on particular aspects of an experience (often the ‘negative’ ones) and ignore or discount other aspects – thereby “distorting” our view of the world.

People are usually unaware of how they distort their experience with the words they use. Cognitive Distortions not only limit our choices, but can lead to unnecessary suffering – and sometimes even make a situation worse when we act on incorrect assumptions.

As a coach, Cognitive Distortions are a great opportunity to raise our client’s awareness and challenge their limiting thought processes, allowing us to dig into the limiting beliefs Read More…
