From Experiencing Transformation to Creating Transformation
The Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching Diploma is not only about taking home a framework or developing skills but also about undergoing the same transformation yourself that you would later help your clients experience!
That would be wonderful, wouldn’t it?
One of the most exciting aspects of Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching training is the breakthroughs you experience as an individual.
During the training itself, you extensively practice what you learn with your co-participants, working on real goals and issues that you may be facing. This takes you through a series of personal breakthroughs that culminate in a transformation.
As a result, you are able to design your own pathway to a financially and emotionally fulfilling career as a therapist and learn to manage your own mental state – your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and more.
Your personal growth during training and mentoring enables you to help your clients transform their own lives, as you develop –
- Unconditional positive regard
- Non-judgemental attitude
Establishing the therapeutic agreement:This competency is about understanding the purpose of the therapeutic interaction and to come to an agreement with the prospective client about the therapy process and relationship. This includes understanding and effectively discussing the guidelines, specific parameters of the therapeutic relationship, reaching agreement about what is and is not appropriate in the therapeutic relationship, what is and is not being offered, what are the responsibilities of the therapist and the client.
Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards:This competency is about understanding the professional standards and guidelines that therapists must abide by. Some of these guidelines are legally binding while others are considered best practices. Following these guidelines and standards ensure that the therapist is able to safeguard their legal interests.
- Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards
- Establishing the Therapeutic Agreement
Using a flexible approach that is client-centric:Not every client is the same. So, it is beneficial for the therapist to identify which approach to use for whom. A therapist may be equipped with multiple tools and techniques to help clients deal with their challenges and achieve their desired outcome. However, it is essential to identify which tool/model would best suit the client and require the least amount of effort and time. A therapist needs to have the competency to not just identify and select the right approach for the client but also to modify the approaches in the most appropriate ways.
Managing self and maintaining coaching presence:Whilst in a therapy session, the therapist must be fully aware of what the client is saying and respond accordingly. The therapist’s response will help set a direction/path for the client’s desired outcome. The therapist should also be aware of his/her biases and not let these biases influence the therapy process. This can completely derail the session and hamper the process. The therapist must also be competent to demonstrate confidence in himself/herself and in the process that they are planning to use with the client.
Establishing a trust-based relationship with the client:This competency is all about creating a safe/supportive environment for the client which would ensure trust and mutual respect between the individuals involved. The therapist should also demonstrate genuine concern for the client’s personal welfare and future. This should be done in a way that does not seem forced and yet effective for the client. This will also help the therapist develop a strong rapport with the client thereby ensuring the therapeutic process goes smoothly.
- Using Structured yet Flexible Client-Centered Approach
- Managing self and maintaining therapeutic presence
- Establishing trust-based relationship with the client
Engaged Listening:This competency is about the ability to effectively listen, encourage, accept and explore what the client is saying. Listening is completely different from hearing; it means listening not just through your ears but through your eyes and other senses. Whilst listening, the therapist should also observe the body language of the client, the changes in tonality of the voice, summarise, paraphrase, reiterate what the client is saying, mirror the client and ensure that there is clarity in understanding the client. Through engaged listening, the therapist would be able to make out a lot of the things about the client. It will ensure that the therapist uses the right kind of tools and processes on the client for him/her to reach the desired outcome.
Powerful Questioning:This competency is about the ability to ask questions that will uncover the information needed for greatest benefit to the therapeutic relationship and the client, by posing questions that are open-ended to create greater clarity, possibility or new learning. It’s important for therapist to question not to confront but to understand the client. These questions are meant to help the client explore their thoughts, perceptions, and behaviours in a way that the client can understand him/herself better and the therapist can assist them overcome their challenges and achieve their outcome. This also enables the therapist to collect specific details so that they can work on facts and not personal biases.
Flexible/Person centric communication:While engaged listening and powerful questioning are important competencies, another thing to keep in mind is that different people communicate differently. It is important for a therapist to be able to identify and use the style of communication preferred by the client. This requires the therapist to be aware of different aspects of communication (suggestibility, love language, representation system, level of expressiveness, meta programs…) that can influence a clients style of communication. Based on how the client understands and communicates, the therapist needs to be flexible and communicate accordingly. While this therapeutic competency is closely associated with the person-centric approach, it also helps the therapist build a trust-based relationship.
- Engaged Listening
- Powerful Questioning
- Effective Communication
Raising awareness and insights:This coaching competency is about the ability to integrate, accurately assess and interpret various information to help the client gain awareness and achieve agreed-upon results. The coachee will be equipped to identify facts from the interpretation and distinguish between behaviours that need to be worked on to ensure the desired outcome is met. While coaching is more about the outcome and not insights, it is true that many times insights becomes the seed on which an outcome can be achieved. In cases where insights are important coaches must have the tool to help coachees get these insights. since insights are spontaneous and come from the unconscious mind, a coach’s ability to work with the unconscious can be very handy. While the coach can use processes to help the coachees tap into his/her unconscious, the coach also enables the coachee to develop mindfulness leading to increased awareness about themselves and their lives.
Inviting Possibility:The coach should have the competency to ensure that the coachee is open to all possibilities. At times certain thoughts, emotions or beliefs lead to the coachee not being open to things that may be beneficial for achieving the desired outcome. The coach would help the coachee restructure these things that are essential for a better tomorrow in life. This also inculcates a sense of hopefulness within the coachee thereby looking at things in the rawest form possible and not interpreting them with his/her own biases.
Ecological goal setting:Since coaching is about helping coachees achieve desired goals, goal setting becomes an extremely important part of the coaching process. Having said that, there are times when one goal can negatively influence other goals which may be more important from the point of view of the coachees unconscious. In such cases, the unconscious doesn’t support the accomplishment of these goals which can lead to self sabotaging. Ecological goal setting ensures that goals are set in a way that they do not negatively affect any other goals.
Designing Actions:This coaching competency is about the ability to co-create opportunities for ongoing learning and for taking new actions that will most effectively lead to agreed-upon coaching results. This can be achieved through brainstorming and assisting coachees to define actions that will enable them to demonstrate, practice and deepen new learning. Challenging coachee’s assumptions, helping them to evaluate options, focus on alternative ideas and solutions, and explore specific concerns and opportunities vital to coaching goals is equally important whilst designing action plans for them. After helping clients create ecological goals it is necessary for the coachee to also ensure specific steps to take them from where they are to move to desired goals. In order to understand these steps, a coach helps the coachee explore and evaluate different ways, options, ideas and solutions.
Overcoming conscious and unconscious hindrances:The coach whilst designing the plan of action/task-list for the coachee, should assess and see if there are possible hindrances that may prevent the coachee from consistently completing the tasks. At times these hindrances may be out of the coachee’s awareness. At this point, it is essential for the coach to ensure that the coachee is aware of the same and should enable him/her to deal with it. It can also be that at times the coachee may be aware of the hindrances but is not able to control or overcome it. For ex: – persistent dysfunctional thought, feeling or behaviour pattern. In times like this, the coach helps the coachee become aware of the hindrances they were unaware of and help the coachee change those thoughts and feelings that were getting triggered automatically. Dealing with hindrances can also ensure that the coachee gets new learnings and will be better equipped to deal with similar or new hindrances in the future.
Managing Progress and Accountability:This coaching competency is about the ability to hold attention on what is significant for the coachee and to leave the responsibility with him/her by clearly requesting the coachee to stick to the agreed plan of actions that will move the coachee toward his/her stated goals. Following through – by asking about those actions that the coachee is committed to in previous session(s), and acknowledging the lessons learned, what was done and what wasn’t along with keeping the coachee on track by holding attention to the coaching plan and the desired outcome – is important.
