HELPING YOU THRIVE AT HOME, AT WORK, IN LIFE

Do you have an inner critic?  That voice that pops into your head to tell that you will fail, that you will look stupid, that you aren’t deserving of success?  Are you great at what you do but constantly feel like an impostor? Does your inner critic laugh and tell you that you’re going to be found out?  Do you get in your own way by self-sabotaging your attempts to make any changes in your life?  If any of this sounds familiar and you want to build incredible confidence and self-belief by creating your inner-cheerleader, then why not book a free consultation?

I help clients let go of self-sabotage and negative self-talk in order to unleash their authentic truth, value and strength. I’m so EXCITED to be able to share some of the INCREDIBLE techniques I’ve used so you too can enjoy the AMAZING results.

Lou Laggan Coaching & Development

#NELifeCoach

As a professional person you have so many roles to fulfil: business owner, career professional; parent; wife / husband; partner, son or daughter, mentor or friend to name a few!  It’ s a constant juggling act to keep everyone else happy and no matter how hard you try you feel like you’re failing everyone. Negative self-talk stops you from achieving the success you truly deserve; you cannot find the time to look after yourself and you’re gradually worn down until you are lost in the role of an impostor and are at the mercy of the negative thoughts from your inner critic.

Professional Coach Lou Laggan will show you how to be free of these feelings; to be able to enjoy all aspects of your life free of guilt and shame.  Lou will help you gain a freedom of heart, mind and soul that you never believed was possible.  A freedom that means you balance work and family, allowing yourself to be fully present in and enjoying each completely . A freedom that comes from a deep and confident self-belief that allows you to see your true strength and value.  A freedom that comes from turning your inner-critic into your inner-cheerleader so that you can thrive at home, at work, in life.

#bearwisdom #mindset #transformation #coaching #action #NLP How does NLP help me with gardening?Given the lovely weather over the last couple of days, I've taken the opportunity to do 'stuff' in the garden.I hesitate to use the term 'gardening' as I'm really not a gardener. I've mowed the lawns, I've scraped weeds out of paving cracks, I've chopped and sheared. I've felt satisfied, frustrated, annoyed and there's been tears.The tears came on Saturday when I was mowing the small lawn in the sun trap at the end of the garden. It used to be a lovely space to sit in the sun all day. Now it's so overgrown it's unusable. Thinking of all the lovely times in that spot I began to get upset at how different it is now. Cue tears.🥲Then I began to really notice what was happening in that space. There were so many butterflies, and lots of big bumble bees. There was the path through the bushes that the foxes made, along with some chew toys they had stolen from a neighbour's garden!The apple tree that I thought was on the way out last year has taken off and promises a bumper crop. Bramble bushes are appearing in abundance.Time for a reframe - How lucky am I to have this part of the garden where nature has made its home. Thank you NLP!By Sunday evening I couldn't actually bend down to pick up all the cuttings. More frustration. with pain levels. Annoyed with myself that I couldn't finish the task. Berating myself for not being fitter and more mobile. Hmmm "Is this thinking helpful? No. What would be helpful?" Well, that would be one of the presuppositions of NLP - "Everyone is doing the best they can in any moment with the resources they have available". I was doing the very best I could today with the resources I had available. I took action. I stretched myself & I can finish the sweeping up tomorrow. Who knows, I may even attack the big hedge with the electric cutters!!!😱NLP helps me take stock, it helps me look at things in a more helpful way. It allows me to prevent a downward spiral. Through NLP I was able to have a happier and more productive day.How could NLP help you? Get in touch to find out.😁 ... See MoreSee Less

#bearwisdom #mindset #transformation #coaching 3 reminders that resonated at varying levels with me this week.When you make decisions, it's ok to consider other people, what's not ok is to consider them to the extent that you put yourself last. You aren't here to please others.When did you last take a break in your working day? A proper break. One that allowed you to completely step away from your work, that allowed you to re-energise? One where you weren't consumed with what was still on your to-do list?You're stronger than your excuses. Hmmm. This can be a tough one to hear, a tough one to admit. The reality is, we all make excuses. We tell ourselves little stories as to why we cannot do something, whether it's hitting the snooze button in the morning, or going for a walk, or doing your excersise routine, maybe it's doing that admin work you've been putting off, it isn't urgent, it can wait. Or the big piece of work that you put off- oh I need to have a clearer head before I tackle that.Little stories, all excuses.The more we allow them to take hold, the more power they gain.We are stronger than our excuses. Show yourself that today. ... See MoreSee Less

Last year, when I ran the NLP Practitioner Certification, we had a dog as an unexpected and unplanned guest. It turned out to be a great addition to the learning, giving us the opportunity to link so much of what we covered in NLP with Jacci Wright's sterling efforts to capture the dog.This morning I've been pondering how to link foxes to this NLP training. 🦊I've been a trainer for more years than I care to admit and I've always found that delegates learn best through play. When we have fun, our mind seems more open, and the playful atmosphere takes the edge off any trepidation that a delegate may have. Whether it's using bright and colourful flipcharts ( I do love a flipchart), bringing in fiddle toys, telling stories or simply utilising whatever occurs by having a good laugh, it all aids the learning.It's also why I use a combination of pre-course online learning and in person training. The 'training room' is the place for demonstrations, practical application, practice and integration.Play is used in the animal kingdom as a means of teaching.This morning I was watching Mummy Fox teach her cubs through play. Showing how to pounce and grab. Later I saw the cubs repeating the same behaviours. Forgive the wobbliness of the video - I do get excited when I see the foxes in the garden. You can find out more about my upcoming Practitioner training and what it can do for you via this link 👇www.loulaggancoaching.co.uk/work-with-lou/nlp-training/It will be run over 3 weekends from the end of August.I cannot promise foxy guests but I can promise play, laughter, quality learning and cake!

This morning I was up bright and early. I popped downstairs to get a cuppa at 5.30am to be greeted by a sight that made my heart sing.I knew I had regular fox visitors and had seen two cubs - I hadn't expected 4!I filmed for a couple of minutes and then spent the next 15 minutes completely in the moment. All worries, plans and rumination gone. Nothing else in my head - simply enjoying watching the cubs. A beautiful way to start my day and I seem to have had a spring in my step all day!A reminder to me of how valuable it is to my wellbeing to stay in the moment and avoid leaning forward into what is to come or leaning back into what has passed.#fox #mindset #transformation #bepresent #coaching ...

Well I survived my first #NEExpo woohoo. What a day! There really are some incredible businesses in the North East. Thank you to Trust Red for keeping me supplied with delicious coffee! Also to my stand neighbours Robson Laidler not only for their help but also some really interesting conversations about Motivational Mapping.Great to meet Outrank and BooBoo certainly enjoyed making new friends (we're both looking forward to the wine hic!). It was lovely to be prompted to try new things -Determined to visit Newcastle Castle and I tasted piccalilli for the first time thanks to Calder's Kitchen (and yes, I'm hooked - their tomato and spicy tomato were yummy too!)Definitely something I will do again. The cupcakes went down well with the Lemon Limoncello winning out over the Chocolate & Baileys but it was a close call!Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a chat, a cupcake and to all the organisers, and of course to North East Chamber of Commerce #Bearwisdom #Mindset #Transformation #Coaching #Mindhack ...
