The Origins of Our Thinking and Behavioral Patterns
Our thoughts can be powerful but also problematic, they can both support or sabotage us in all sorts of ways. In the course of our lives we all create our own mental map. These mental maps make the world around us manageable. But in creating them our thinking deforms and filter things out and generalizes. The resulting map establishes what we see as our truth. But these mental maps, like all maps, need to be updated. Finding a new road with an old map is a difficult task and results in confusion, insecurity and stress. When we endeavour to change it often means we need to take a new road, one that might not be on our maps. This is where Christie Linley can help.
In our coaching sessions you’ll update your mental map and become aware of your mental strategies and the filters you use to see, hear and feel with. You’ll find out how these filters limit you and how they support you. You’ll also discover the beliefs you have about yourself, and of the world around you. The greatest challenge is to embark on the journey of change, to recognize those inner feelings, to listen to their voice and to give them space. The first step is the hardest: there is often something deep within us that conspires to hold us within seemingly safe boundaries. You have begun to take the first step by searching for support.

You cannot find your direction or purpose, you have worked enormously hard to help your family get settled into a new house, new life, new job, new schools. You had to stretch your comfort zone to do so; you managed, adjusted as best you could and much of your energy went to others. Now you have time for yourself and you don’t know how to move on, you feel insecure.
You are moving ahead, taking decisions, you have a plan, see your bright future and feel resourceful. Identifying your needs and your wants has given you clarity and direction. Now you can focus on the content and the activity you need to feel fulfilled and confident.
Some areas in your life are perfect and running smoothly, but others are rockier. You want more balance between the different areas in your life, you need to pay more attention to some of them, but you don’t get round to it.
All the different areas in your life – education, prosperity, physical health, mental health, relationships, contribution, recreation and spirituality – that are important to you have your attention. It feels right.
You have a dream, a passion that you have postponed or don’t know how to realize, there have always been some obstacles in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business.
Your dream has become a concrete goal and you have taken the necessary steps to realise it. You are in your in your element, you are moving forward and are focussed. You feel well and energized. You are making healthy choices.
Feelings of shame and guilt are making you feel miserable and confused, you have no one to turn to, you feel isolated and afraid. You have ignored these feelings for a long time, too long. The negative impact on your life is in your way.
An enormous load has fallen off your shoulders by opening up and giving your feelings a voice the air has been cleared. You feel lighter happier and freer to be who you are and do what you want. You feel and can connect with self and others.
