In 2020 one of the co-founders Mark England (check out his TedX talk here) got in touch with me to say that he has made Be More Pirate recommended reading for his entire coaching community. He invited me to come and talk to them, and introduced me to a few who were based in London, one of whom offered me a taster of their coaching methods.
I wasn't sure at first but it only took one session for me to understand that this was a really powerful technique. I’d had other coaching and talking therapy before, but with this I had a major breakthrough in just one session.
When Mark asked whether I’d like to do the certification I honestly didn’t hesitate.
Enlifted techniques train you in three things:
1. Stories: at critical moments in our lives, stories and beliefs are formed around our identity. These stories often keep us stuck and unable to be who we really want to be. Enlifted has a four step method that uncovers the story, helps you to understand what it really means, and then release it.
2. Language: the words we use frame and create our reality, but very few people stop and examine the phrases they most repeat, and the impact they have on how they see themselves, and how others see them.
2. Breath: it was a breakthrough moment for me to understand that no matter how much self-discipline I had, I would never achieve my goals while anxiety around that goal was still alive in my nervous system. Our limiting stories are embodied, and breath is how we let them go.
