What is a life coach? How can a life coach benefit me?

A ‘life coach’ is someone who is trained to help you see clearly where you are today, then find ways to move forward towards your goals. They do not tell you what to do, they help you discover what it is you want to do.

Who can benefit from life coaching?

Anyone who wishes to make a quantum shift in their life in order to gain a more confident and stable way of living. Anyone who is stuck at any point in life and looking to seek clarity and direction for the way forward.

What does life coaching look like?

Life coaching is a collaborative approach where we work with you to establish desired goals and identify what is stopping you achieve them. We help you reflect using tailored techniques to come up with a game plan  that lets you move forward. You remain in control of your decisions and we maintain confidentiality at all times.

Transformational life coaching allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe space with access to 1-1 professional support to reframe thinking and redefine purpose of life.

Successful coaching is a partnership and has accountability for both you and the Coach For a successful coaching relationship it is important to: 

  • Be punctual 

  • Stay focused

  • Be open and transparent

  • As questions and seek clarification when unsure

  • Be willing to try again or something new

  • Be accountable

  • Celebrate wins

How soon can I see results?

People seek life coaching for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes our clients have specific concerns that they want to resolve, like losing weight, changing careers or developing healthier habits. Sometimes people come for life coaching because they want to feel happier, more productive or more in control of their lives. Most people get what they need out of working with a Life Coach between 4 - 12 sessions. People who are highly motivated “active learners” can go through the process more quickly.

How is life coaching different from counseling?

Counseling provides a safe and supportive system to help you gain the strength and clarity to cope with the current issues. Counselors like life coaches want to help you find and create a life you feel better about by providing an atmosphere of trust, non judgement and support but there are crucial differences such as:

  • Life coaching works at conscious level of the mind and is action orientated vs counselling focuses on coping with the situation

  • Life coaches want to help you recognize what you think vs counsellors also want to help you realize how you feel

  • Life coaching helps you set and achieve goals vs counselling helps you recognise and solve your problems in life.

  • A life coach has the job to challenge you frequently vs a counsellor is there to support you with empathy and understanding

  • Life coaches focus exclusively on the past, present and future vs some counsellors focus mostly on the past and the present

  • A life coach is focused on your potential vs a counsellor is focused on helping you be at peace with yourself and your life

  • Life coaches are trained in helping clients move forward in life vs counsellors are also trained in human development, family dynamics and mental health conditions (Source: Harley Therapy, 2017)

Can life coaching work for children?

A parent is the best resource for kids when they are overwhelmed, stressed or unhappy. Where this is not possible, life coaching is a fantastic, strengths-based alternative for kids and teens. We focus on age-appropriate solutions. We work with individuals aged 15+. 


What is hypnotherapy? How can it benefit me?

Hypnotherapy is a technique that is used to create a relaxed sleep-like state of mind (theta state) during which positive suggestions and guided imagery can be well received to help you deal with a variety of concerns, issues and habits you want to change. You are completely in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on any suggestions if you don't want to. A normal human being goes through hypnosis at least twice a day just before s/he fall asleep and just when s/he about to wake up. These are also known as power states in which the subconscious mind is most receptive to positive suggestions.

Sabahat Ahmed is a Master Practitioner Hypnotherapy who is adept at using advanced techniques such as past life regression, gestalt, six step reframe, etc. to address deeper issues and drive transformational changes.

What is Neuro-linguistic Programming?

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, it is the language of your mind. The knowledge, experiences and memories we gain over the years leads to creating our own realities and perceptions of the world around us.  

NLP is extremely useful for rapid transformation and in overcoming fears & phobias linked to flying, closed spaces, presenting/public speaking, heights, animals etc. and in helping you get rid of cravings that you are not otherwise able to. Through advanced techniques, we interrupt and disrupt the neuropathways that cause us to behave in a certain manner. This is then supported by creating new neuropathways in order to remove anxiety, fears, phobias and other negative emotions emotions.

NLP is based on the following presuppositions:

  • Respect for all others

  • The meaning of the communication is not simply what you intend, but also the response that you get

  • The mind and body affect each other

  • People respond to their experience, not to reality itself. The map is not the territory

  • Every behaviour has a positive intention. Everyone is doing the best that they can with the resources they have available. People make the best choice they can at the time

  • Behaviour is geared towards adaptation

  • Accept the person; change the behaviour

  • Behaviour and change are to be evaluated in terms of context and ecology

  • People have all the resources that they need to make the changes that they want. We already have all the resources we need or we can create them. There are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states

  • Possible in the world and possible for me is only a matter of how

  • The system (person) with the most flexibility (choices) of behaviour will have the most influence on the system

  • There is no failure, only feedback

  •  There are no resistant clients, only inflexible communicators

  • Having choice is better than not having choice


What is NNRT and how does it help deal with trauma and other negative emotions?
Negative Neuropathway Reversal Therapy (NNRT) is a stand alone therapy that primarily uses bi-lateral eye movements and it can be used in tandem with Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP, Coaching and Mindfulness. We guide the client to move their eyes in formulated sequences in order re-set the neuro pathways of the brain so that they then perceive the negative stimulus in a different light. It is proven to be very effective where neuro-pathways are firing and sending off negative messages and is used in the treatment of trauma, depression, PTSD, as well as almost any condition whereby you are ’ stuck’ or can't ‘let go’ or ‘move forward’. The Brain contributes to homeostasis by mediating complex functions through sensory input, integration of new and stored information, making decisions and signaling actions (Tortora & Grabowski) and NNRT works on many levels of the brain to facilitate this process.


Are there any contraindications to NNRT?

NNRT is effective in treating all emotional conditions and trauma such as mental abuse, anger, confidence building, fears & phobias, general anxiety disorders, insomnia, performance nerves, smoking cessation, sexual abuse/rape, weight loss. However in the following conditions NNRT will not be used:

  • Eye Pain – if the client has any eye pain, we will refer them back to the ophthalmologist / optician.

  • Drug & Alcohol Abuse or Influence – In this case client will be referred to the AA / rehab programme

  • Epilepsy

  • Schizophrenia - Unless it has been treated and stabilized. Treatment will only be given under clinical supervision

  • Brain Damage

  • Suicidal Attempts/Thoughts

  • Clients with Secondary Gain Issues

  • Dissociative Disorder


What is USUI Reiki?

The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki to heal self and others in order to regain harmony and wholeness. The Usui System of Natural Healing, was founded in Japan by Mikao Usui, when he started his personals journey to discover healing and resulted in having contact with the cosmic energy Reiki. It has been passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice.

Usui Reiki addresses the whole person on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels and those that we cannot identify at the present. Sabahat Ahmed is a certified Reiki Master and uses Usui reiki to support you in addressing physical issues and emotional blocks at a deeper level by channelising the energy through the chakras; your energy vortex.

Reiki session can last from 45 to 75minutes depending on the issue that is being addressed. 


What is systemic constellation?

Systemic constellation, also known as family constellation, is a modality introduced by Bert Hellinger in 1978 in Germany. It is an integrated approach based on the principle that we all belong to a family system and like the features we inherit, unresolved issues and traumas are also passed down through generations. A lot of the time the unexplained behaviours or series of events can be because of such entanglement,  

Constellation sessions are conducted on 1-1 basis and also in group setting. We, at Ashmir, facilitate "Group Healing Circles" during which you can bring an issue to resolve and/or simply contribute to others' healing journey. Get in touch to find out more! 

How can constellation help?

Negative behaviour patterns can be so deeply embedded in us that no matter what we do, they don't seem to go away. It becomes a limiting part of our life and rather destructive to our well-being. Constellation helps to identify the unseen reasons and bring back the natural order to life. It helps to acknowledge, accept and release the negative emotions.
