Curious and Curiouser

You may be surprised to know that the jobs I’ve done in the past all shared a common theme (with maybe the exception of my last role as a Project Manager at Orange). If you’re wondering how my (occasional part-time freelance role) as a Web Developer is really quite similar to my work I do as an NLP Life Coach, then the answer is simply: “Curiosity”.

People who know me would tell you that I have a natural tendency to try and find out “how things work”. Or more precisely, “how does it work, what’s the process behind it and how do you fix it?”. It was this tendancy that lead me to studying Philosophy at University… well, for a very short while anyway.

I love a good problem. Whether it’s a Sudoku puzzle or just trying to add new functionality to my websites. My curiosity translates extremely well when I’m working with my NLP clients. I’m always amazed at the stories people create, just so they can hold on to their phobia, or other negative issue. In the back of my mind, I’m thinking: “How have you put that process together?”.

And, if you’re fortunate enough to work with me, you’ll find that I won’t stop until I’m sure that I’ve completely helped you to find a suitable solution, and made sure that, by the end of our session working together, you’ve completely let go your problem.

When people ask me why I love doing NLP Life Coaching, I’m often reminded of something Don Logan said:

“ It’s not about the money with you and me is it, Gal? It’s the charge, it’s the bolt, it’s the buzz, it’s the sheer f*ck off-ness of it all. Am I right? ”

Don Logan played by Sir Ben Kingley,
in “Sexy Beast“ (2000, Dir: Jonathan Glazer)

For me, that quote pretty much sums it up.

PS: I actually installed this website, re-designed the theme, and also created additional functionality for this site! ;)

PPS: You may have also noticed from the title of this page, I quite like phonological ambiguities - “sounds like, but could also mean…?!?”. When you come and have a session with me, you may find I like to play with words (and with your perceptions).
