It’s hard to see the way ahead when you’re missing a big piece of the puzzle.
Once you learn how to find that missing piece, you don’t need to struggle any longer. You can create a new ending to your story.
Maybe you find yourself regularly doing extra hours at work, in evenings and weekends, and not taking the holidays that are due to you.
If you have any free time you’re helping out, either friends or family, or in your community. You know you’re exhausted and running on fumes, but it’s what you’ve always done and you don’t know any different.
Of course you want to be liked and accepted. But it means your mind is constantly filled with what you could have said or should have done.
It’s hard to sleep at night so you end up raiding the fridge, with no idea why.
The reason you’re doing all this is because you’re trying to fill a hole that you might not even be aware of.
We tend to assume that we can ‘out-think’ the hole. We assume that staying in our heads and thinking will magically fill the hole.
And that makes total sense, because thinking is ‘safe’, and also because society teaches us we’re not supposed to feel anything.
You need to stop thinking and start FEELING.
I’m Ann, and I’m here to teach you how.
I understand what it’s like to struggle through life and not know why.
After an unhappy childhood and a history of grief and heartache, I used to live every day with an aching sadness and loneliness.
I didn’t realise I was completely disconnected from myself.
When I found NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) it completely transformed my life.
I became an NLP coach because I care about helping you to let go of the struggle, so you can live the happy fulfilled life that you deserve.
Here’s why you need to start FEELING.
When you start feeling, you find that missing piece that I mentioned earlier.
Our feelings are tightly connected to our needs. When we start feeling, we have access to getting our needs met.
We all have a need for love, acceptance and belonging. We all need to feel that we matter, and that we deserve care and attention as a basic human right.
But sadly a lot of people grow up without these things in their lives.
Some of us might be very aware we had an unhappy childhood. Some of us might think we had an OK childhood, but yet these essential needs were not met.
The result either way is that we learned that our needs are not important and will never be met in any reliable way.
So we learned to block out our needs.
And we end up going through life feeling lost and struggling, and not knowing why.
I believe that everyone has the right to have a present and a future free from the overwhelming troubles of their past.
Why I believe in the power of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic-Programming)
NLP is a set of tools that enable us to change how we perceive our life experience, both past and present.
When we’ve experienced an unhappy or neglectful childhood, we’re left with an internal blueprint of neglect and abandonment. We grow up disconnected from our needs, and we struggle with that pattern throughout our lives.
I use a classic NLP technique called ‘Timeline’ to change this pattern.
My version of the Timeline process enables clients to meet the unconscious needs of their younger self, and bring that gift forward into the rest of their life. It resolves suffering and leads to a happier life.
Here’s a few more things about me:
I’m an INFJ on the Myers Briggs and a 4 on the Enneagram.
I moved to central Scotland for a quieter, more peaceful life, and to nurture my love of trees! Now living surrounded by woodland near to Loch Lomond, I cherish the space and tranquility.
In my garden, I love growing my own fruit and veggies – there’s no greater joy than planting seeds in a little soil and marvelling how nature weaves her magic to create such tasty foods to eat. I also make my own organic, raw chocolate (delicious, though I say so myself !!)
I’m a scientist at heart with a degree in Applied Biology, and worked in medical research for 5 years.
My journey with NLP began in 2007, and it has changed my life in immeasurable ways.
I’m on the autistic spectrum, with all the sensory and social challenges that brings.
I have face blindness – so if we’ve met before, and I don’t seem to recognise you, that’s why!
