Understand how your brain works
Did you know that as humans, we operate on two distinct systems and that everything we do involves our brain in some way?
This is borne out by behavioural science, which is the study of how we operate. Behavioural science has identified that one part of our brain – the unconscious brain – propels us to do the fast, automatic processes that we do without even being aware of them… think of the last time you did something automatically without even knowing you were doing it!
The second part of our brain – the conscious brain – is what we use to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. When using this part of our brain, our actions are guided by a slow, deliberate thought process… the think before you act process. Eighty per cent of the time we achieve our goals using this part of our brain but sometimes we fail… Why?
This can be linked to our unconscious brain, which makes between two and 10,000 decisions each day, most of which are made for us automatically. The problem is that some of these automatic, unconscious decisions very often sabotages the deliberate goals we set for ourselves, but we don’t know when this is happening, how it is happening and why. What we do know is that we need to change this phenomenon.
Mind Coaching for Change
Does this sound familiar to you? Does it apply to you? If so, then Cregg Coaching can help you change how you think and act. We can use Mind Coaching techniques to help you modify how your unconscious brain works and enable you achieve those challenging goals that are being hindered by your unconscious brain.
So, what is Mind Coaching? It centres on awareness of ourselves and what we do, in the moment, all the time. It facilitates positive change by making us more aware of those hitherto unseen aspects of our behaviour. It’s only when we are aware of something that we can observe, reflect on and act upon it.
How can we change something we are not even aware of? Through expanding our awareness, bringing more of our experiences into our consciousness. This is an inherent part of any process of authentic change. This is what we can help you achieve.
Mindfulness increases awareness not only of our conscious behaviour, such as setting a goal and taking steps to achieve it, but also of our less-conscious behaviours, such as subtle shifts in emotions, impulses, and intentions.
Are you aware of every thought you have, every moment of the day? How often are you on automatic pilot… propelling yourself into action?
Applying mindfulness techniques can be your starting point…
Using mindfulness, we will make you more aware of the impulse that precedes every action you take. This noticing will create the space for you to choose a course of action and to change current patterns.
We would be delighted to work with you to lay the groundwork for new habits that will lead to changes in your behaviour.
