What is Life Design?
Traditionally, a distinction has been made between counselling and coaching that has for the most part meant that clients are treated very differently depending on the service they choose. New Leaf has developed a completely new service based on the needs of the businesses we work with, taking counselling skills into completely new arenas. This new structure allows for a leap which integrates coaching and counselling in a very new way by offering a creative platform to help individuals achieve their goals or desired improvements.
How Life Design Works
The model gives a creative but practical way of working with both our inner and outer realities. It helps us to connect with our inner selves and the energy in the world surrounding us, the energy that is impacting on how we think, react or behave. This way of working can also help us to identify the deeper patterns which keep us locked in cycles of behaviour. It offers a dynamic way of moving forwards. The Life Design model gives us a vehicle to explore a range of feelings, and to understand how your past is influencing your present. This model works on the more intuitive and creative aspects of our nature and both the non-rational and rational aspects of ourselves. It helps us to reconnect with ourselves and in doing so, better connect within our workplace.
What can it help individuals achieve?
We can help people map their Life Design process both personally, and in their working life. By working with us and using this creative tool, we can help them reach goals and aspirations in a new and safe way. Just as an artist has no choice but to express their lives through their creativity, then so your employees express their lives through your business. Employees often have large workloads and deal with complex issues alongside managing their personal lives within an uncertain fluctuating environment. Using Life Design can help them develop resilience and free up more of their creativity to help within their working and personal lives. Tapping into our creative mind allows for new ideas to emerge, insight to awaken, inspired through the imagination rather than through logic or reason. It allows for us to have fresh perspectives on challenging problems and think of new and innovative ways to move forwards.
