Presentation: Small Steps to Big Change

Small StepsWhen we think of things that we want to change, we can get hung up with the final outcome which can be a good thing for some people, if they can remain motivated and move towards their outcome.

For some people the change from where they are now to where they want to be can seem so enormous, that the possibility of achieving the outcome can be too daunting to imagine and can be why they will avoid change or give up trying.

By breaking down the journey into small steps and removing obstacles whilst remaining motivated the outcome can be achieved.

During this session techniques will be used from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) through demonstration and practice to find a way to remove blocks which are preventing you from making change and help you move towards your outcomes and goals.

No previous experience is necessary as full explanations and demonstration will be carried out

Presentation: Do You Eat Your Emotions?

Emotional EatingA Rough Guide to Emotional Eating and what we can do about it

Emotional Eating is quite simply, eating to supress or soothe negative emotions we experience.

Emotional Eating is a very common problem but only some of us that are aware that we do it and even fewer know what to do about it.

If you have trouble losing weight, put weight straight back on after dieting, crave certain foods and experience sudden hunger, you may be an emotional eater.

This presentation will be an overview about what emotional eating is, how we can identify it in ourselves and what strategies we can use to reduce it.

Presentation: Integrated Performance Coaching

Integrated Performance CoachingYou’ve focussed on your goal, you’ve worked at it, you have yet to achieve it. In this practical session you will explore a broader way to create a personal plan for success.

Integrated performance coaching is the approach Jackie used as an international sportswoman to prepare for big competitions. There’s more to a sporting performance than the sport. There’s more to business success than business.

Starting with an area of your life that you want to improve, we’ll identify the factors that have an effect. People often think in a narrow way, so expanding the scope is a key part of the technique. Understanding what contributes to a good performance helps you prioritize your efforts. Making the best of all factors within your control gives you confidence.

Jackie works in business and nutrition coaching. She competed in archery at international level for 21 years. She now devotes her time to helping people improve their lives.

Presentation: Changing Your Luck by Changing the Stories You Tell

Make your own luckDo you feel dogged by bad luck?

Would you like to get luckier?

Do you seem to meet all the wrong people? Or the right ones at the wrong time?

You don’t need to buy lucky charms. There is scientific research that provides practical tips on how to improve your odds and have an easier life. I use this information to help people improve their relationships and make life easier for themselves.

In this talk, I will explain some of the findings and illustrate the lessons they teach us. I’ll give guidance on how to change your luck by changing the stories you tell yourself and others.

As a mediator and conflict coach, I have seen the benefits of this approach again and again.

Presentation: The Balanced Mind-Body Diet

Mind-Body Diet

You may have heard about the benefits of a balanced diet?

In this workshop we are looking at what activities, when consistently present in our everyday life, build up towards and increase our balanced Mind-Body well-being and resilience.

I wonder where do you feel your thoughts.

Where do you think your feelings can be found?

How about your bodily experiences?

How do you know when your hunger is a real hunger instead of fancying something or that someone kisses you better than no one has ever done before?

Or on the other hand, how do you detect a half-hearted handshake from a genuine one?

Our mind-body experiencing can be seen like the movement of a swing; what matters is not the highest two points, but the relationship between those two highest points and what happens in that space where the swing swings between them.

We feel and think with the means of our body: our brain, nervous system, hormones and muscles do the job for us. Equally, we recognise and evaluate our bodily experiences, for example pain and pleasure by naming and grading them in our mind.

This workshop is about the concepts “mind” and “body”; how they are linked to each other AND how they can also be seen as “one and the same”, an organism that has different aspects in our inner experiencing.

Our session consists of fun and practical learning activities. We will play with the concepts “mind” and “body” using them as a pair of useful “ideas” AND explore how it can also be helpful to see “the Mindbody” as one. The aim is to create some new or strengthen present awareness on what benefits using mindbody-link has when you’re looking after your emotional resilience and wellbeing in your everyday, real life.

“Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create” – Jana Kingsford

Presentation: Create Your Master Dream List

Master Dream List“Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.  Live the Life You’ve Imagined” – Henry David Thoreau

To create change in your life the first thing you must do is dream!

Dream of your future.  Dream of what you want. Imagine your life as you feel it ought to be lived.

Why?  Because dreams shape goals! Goals drive us forward.

In goal-setting, the reason why most people are generally unsuccessful or fall short is because they do not know where to begin.  The use of a Master Dream List not only develops your Plan of Action, it also generates the re-birth of your natural creativity.  It reschools you in imagination and inventiveness.  You give yourself permission to write down any wish, want, or desire regardless of how ridiculous it may seem.

You need to bring with you a pen and plenty of paper.  First, you write down anything that comes to mind, then you categorize your dreams into sections. Sections may include a Social Dream List, Spiritual, Mental Development, Financial or Family Development.

This is a fun workshop.  The objective is to help you go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you have imagined.

Presentation: How To Manage Your Inner Tortoise

Inner TortoiseHow to manage yourselves (and others) who default to tortoise mode when unwanted change or conflict is on the horizon.

In my last ChangeCamp session on managing your emotions in conflict, most of the tools were for managing anger.

This year, I’ll concentrate on tools to help you manage fearful and anxious reactions to conflict.

So instead of going from beast to Buddha, I’ll be talking about how to stick your neck out.

This session covers how to over your fear of conflict, learning how to say what you need, saying no nicely and sticking to it. (And still like yourself!)

“We can say what we need to say. We can gently, but assertively, speak our mind. We do not need to be judgmental, tactless, blaming or cruel when we speak our truths.” ― Melody Beattie
