What is NeuroCoaching?

Posted in: February 5, 2019 By: Bernadette Marie Wilson

Hello there!

After an interview with Mari Frank on Fighting for Love (88.9FM and www.kuci.org), that aired today, November 5th, at 8:30am, I was excited to share what I spoke about with you all. You can listen to the entire interview HERE. I hope that this blog post helps give you insight into the amazing potential NeuroCoaching has for the lives of so many.

What is NeuroCoaching?

In such a new field, I find it is so important to explain what I do as a NeuroCoach to others. Don’t be shy if you’ve never heard of it before either! As a NeuroCoach, I utilize a set of protocols developed over the years founded on science-based principles. The foundation of NeuroCoaching is the 10 or so protocols that are used in every session with clients. The methods I use are all evidence-based and found through large amounts of research and practice. I am a certified NeuroCoach and have been practicing NeuroCoaching for two years now. I have found it to be extremely amazing and transformational for both myself and my clients. In my NeuroCoaching, I utilize traditional mindfulness techniques to connect with and guide my clients to their ultimate Cognitive Performance.


Working with Values

Values are one of the foundations we work with in our coaching sessions. We all have different values. Some common values I hear are love and truth. When I’m working with a client, I’ll ask them for a value that is close to their heart. From there, we want to work to associate that value with a feeling, a picture, and an insight. We work together to imprint that feeling, picture, and insight on every fiber of their being so that it is a safe place to come back to. That place becomes sacred and good, and it is a place to return to when someone may be working through trauma. I help coach clients to go to this blissful place and “overlay the trauma.” Your brain has a choice to give life to negative or blissful thoughts. Our goal is to get you to a life where you can go to that safe place during problems that arise or trauma that returns. When you think about the trauma or problem again later down the road, you will not feel as triggered as a result of this brain training.


The Breakthroughs

After only one or two sessions, my clients are finding amazing breakthroughs and transformations. During the sessions, I bring myself to a state of mindfulness alongside my clients. This creates a state of calm awareness for us both. Think about it. How often do you truly feel calm and mindful? Life is often so busy and fast-paced that we forget about or don’t know how to reach these mindful states.

What happens when you are in a state of calm awareness and mindfulness is that your brain isn’t racing. You’re not consumed by other thoughts, ideas, or stories as you might be on a normal day-to-day basis. Instead, you are able to get in touch with your truth. You’re able to get in touch with what is deep inside of you and might be buried a little bit. In my coaching sessions, I am able to ask you questions and guide you onto the path that you want to get to so you can overcome obstacles, achieve healing, and feel in touch with yourself.


When to Experience NeuroCoaching

My clients come in to my sessions for all different reasons. There is never a right or wrong time or reason to start. I help my clients receive coaching in both professional and personal development through NeuroCoaching. You may feel stuck, frustrated, anxious, and maybe just in seek of purpose and excitement in life. There are sometimes where anxious days turn into weeks and it can become a vicious cycle. Stop the cycle and train your brain to thrive.

There is never a bad time to begin, and I would be honored to help you on this road through NeuroCoaching. Let’s connect today to talk about my services and how we can work together.
