What is Emotional Health?
It's about our thoughts, emotions & beliefs which drive our behaviours on a daily basis & affect most areas of our lives. Understanding our emotional health is key to our overall wellbeing & to our happiness. Our outer world is often a reflection of our inner world.
The state of our emotional health changes as we experience different stages of life & as our situations alter.
What is Emotional Wellness?
A state of positive wellbeing where you are feeling balanced, energised & self-assured.
After their first coaching session, one of my clients recently said to me, "it feels like Spring, not just the weather, but I feel like I have woken up."
What Happens in Emotional Health Coaching?
We will work together for as many sessions as you would like to reach your desired level of emotional wellness with a blend of coaching techniques & positive psychology.
In addition to working with you 121 on your personal (& completely confidential) plan, I will provide you with tools & techniques for life so you are able to continue with your personal growth beyond our sessions.
Some of the areas we explore:
Your thoughts, emotions & beliefs: raising awareness, identifying & understanding triggers, accepting & managing them for better results
Your positive energy power, how to raise it & work with it
Self limiting beliefs & any blockages holding you back
Mindfulness & an introduction to meditation
Connecting you with your gut instinct, values & purpose
Increase your self-esteem & resilience
Happiness - creating your joyful life!
Good Vibrations & Your Positive Energy Power!
Everything is energy from the chair you may be perched on to the phone in your hand & the body you live in. Everything is vibrating at a certain frequency.
We are an energy force with different levels of emotional, mental, physical & spiritual energy. Every one of our thoughts has a vibrational frequency & they attract similar vibrations.
This energy can be our personal positive power if we choose to develop it. I help clients generate positive energy, maintain & keep it in flow, strengthen & balance it & remove the blockages.
When our energy is positive (physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually – ideally in all areas!) we feel great & as such we are more likely to attract more positive opportunities, greater happiness & abundance in our lives.
Our thoughts impact our beliefs, that impacts our behaviours & ultimately what we think becomes our reality.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” Carl Jung
Let’s take just one aspect of emotional health; positive thinking. This is not about never allowing ourselves to feel negative emotion because that is an essential part of life; it’s about challenging & changing the negative thoughts (low energy) which shape our beliefs & reality.
It almost seems too basic a concept to hold so much power. Can it really be that simple? Is it that easy?! Well, simple and easy are two very different things!
In the same way that our bodies require regular physical exercise to develop strength, muscle, tone and become a healthier, more capable, resilient & flexible version of ourselves, so do our minds.
Positive thinking allows the brain to develop new connections & neural pathways, so the phrase 'use it or lose it' really does apply here & it requires consistent effort like any habit.
Our brains & bodies are capable of functioning & running on autopilot with little input from the human.
We have developed a range of beliefs that create habits (that may no longer serve us) & yet, they are played out like an old movie tape with the film reel running round & round on the same loop.
We can end up using the old, familiar neural connections, the well-known & worn path of least resistance rather than making a conscious effort to look for new ones. It's easy to fall into this pattern, in fact, it's perfectly normal.
Life is busy & we have more distractions that can keep us from mindfulness than ever before (we also have more possibilities & resources than ever before). The amazing thing is that we can rewire our brains at any time!
