MFC Coaching Philosophy
When clients come to MindFulChoice, they share one thing in common—they have tried other approaches to solve their situation with little or no success. Many have felt trapped by their continuing predicament. Our innovative methods have helped them break free and overcome the cycle of failure and defeat in their lives, so they can achieve their goals and move forward.
In order to solve a dilemma, the first step is to help clients clarify and pinpoint their destination – the place in their life they would be but for the impediment blocking their way. Once that is known, the focus becomes learning to pay closer attention to what is happening within, right here and right now. What is the thinking process they use and the feelings that arise in confronting the events of daily living.
Their self-awareness opens the door to becoming the master of one’s thoughts and feelings. They are now in the right frame of mind to make wiser choices. MFC supplies them with proven techniques and strategies to use, so when they are faced with conflict, they avoid falling into the same rut with the same undesirable results.
MFC is an evidence-based, expert system that is the heart of Mind Focused Coaching & Therapy. For example, one effective method we use is visualization. We teach our clients to mentally visualize a simple binary tree of decision. Step-by-step, it lays out our sequential choices over time and gives us advance notice of where we are headed – for whatever situation we might confront.
To help you grasp the MFC method, we have put together five different scenarios from real cases involving family issues, procrastination, impulse management, and professional development.
