Laura Thompson - Life Coach, Confidence Coach & NLP Practitioner
I work as a Life Coach, Confidence Coach & NLP Practitioner from my private practice in Bangor & Belfast. I also offer online sessions for those further afield. Coaching Programmes with myself are delivered on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly 1:1 basis. You can expect each programme to last between one and three months, depending upon number of sessions required.
I help my clients re-establish their sense of self, confidence and balance by connecting with them on an emotional and practical level. By nature I am one of the most optimistic, resilient, realistic, down to earth people I know. My approach offers my clients the ability to sort things from a variety of perspectives, with flexibility and openness in a safe, non-judgemental way.
I use my skills as a Life Coach and NLP Practitioner as a way of empowering my clients to take control back into their lives in a non-judgmental, safe environment. Life Coaching is a great investment to help you navigate your way away from crisis, set protective boundaries around the things and people who have contributed to your crisis whilst also enabling you to set some gentle and achievable goals for yourself.
Entering into a professional coaching relationship with myself will guarantee you a supportive, safe platform where you can enjoy open and honest communication about what really matters to you at this stage in your life.
I offer everyone a Free Introductory Session. The purpose of the Free Introductory Session is for me to get to know you a little, find out why you think Life Coaching may be something you want, you get to hear a little about me and how I may be able to help you. During the session, which usually last up to one hour, I also get to explain in a little depth how each of my programmes flow.
I use a combination of Positive Psychology, NLP & Life Coaching practises, skills and techniques. I encourage individuals to look at their value systems, make themselves aware of their strengths & obstacles, set goals, look in depth at why change is inevitable and how that all change in a persons personal circumstances can be turned into something of personal empowerment; introduce daily mindfulness activities and suggest keys to clearing away mental blockages. I place emphasis on how to turn negatives into positives, thus leading to a more positive, happier and brighter future.
