NLP Coaching

Feeling "stuck" and in need of a fresh approach to your current mental health, personal or professional setbacks? 

 

NLP coaching may very well be the answer. Through 1-on-1 or group sessions, Debbie will work to help you begin thinking positively and improve communication with yourself and others. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has roots in behavioral sciences and is an effective approach to communication and personal development. It is guided by the principle that everyone already has the resources they need to make positive change in their life. NLP perceptual, behavioral and communication techniques tap into these resources and reframe the mind to encourage new ways of thinking.

Coaching Options: 

1-on-1 Virtual and In-Person Sessions

Small Group Sessions 

Objectives: 

Bring about positive changes in perception to improve productivity, mental health and various other personal goals. 

Potential topics to cover: anxiety, depression, personal and/or professional development, unhealthy decisions, decision making (analysis paralysis)

Price: FREE initial consultation. Please contact for more details.

*Session length dependent on client need (typically 30-60 minutes). 1-4 sessions recommended. 

* NLP degree earned through Dr. Matt James & the Empowerment Partnerships
