Start With You - Karen Ross, Expert Coach

Transformational Coaching Auckland

Welcome to Start With You where you will see fascinating new ways to achieve your goals and create the kind of life you want. 

Doesn’t it feel good when you’re in control of yourself? What if you could be on top of stress and firing on all cylinders at work? How about getting home at the end of the day with energy left in the tank for your loved ones? For you?!

Because you can’t control everything in the world, but you can control yourself. And when you can control your own thoughts and emotions, and be your most brilliant resourceful self, life starts to feel pretty good. And you deserve it!

In the same way athletes have a coach that helps them prepare and train their body to reach their goals, I help people achieve their goals by helping them train and utilise their mind. Using a range of techniques including NLP, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and the Satir Model, coaching at Fresh Ways Forward focuses on you, the client, and offers rapid and lasting change.

Helping you make valuable changes, including:

Stress levels and wellness

Nerves or stage fright

Changing habits

Building confidence and self esteem

Fears, phobias or trauma

Healing emotions

Transformational Journeys

For many years I have been on my own personal journey, exploring ways of feeling more relaxed, uplifted, and in control of my emotions and attitudes. Not until I was fortunate enough to discover NLP did I realise I could truly realise my goals and grow in extraordinary ways. My experiences with the processes of NLP have shown me just the kind of growth a person can achieve quickly and easily, and with lasting results.

NLP techniques are invaluable tools for transformation. By its very nature, NLP enables us to experience an increased sense of wholeness, choice and freedom to live fully. I feel excited and privileged in every situation I have the opportunity to work with a group or individual, such as you, to experience this too.

Here are the changes some of Karen's clients have seen in their lives:

"Since our session my improvements have been unbelievable! I've just won the Tauranga Open ... my lowest four round tournament score in about a year ... I love what we did together!"

-Emily Perry, Golfer

"I had spent most of my working life in support roles which meant I was mainly in the background, with someone else's name attached to a piece of work - I helped to make others successful. For a long time I loved my work and the value I brought to others and their businesses.

Then I started to notice that there were one or two aspects of what I did that I really enjoyed and got a lot of satisfaction from. I decided it was time to focus on those and as a result I made a career change. Although I knew deep down that I was capable, I was very nervous of this shift and my confidence levels were low - the 'little voice' was holding me back.

Karen has helped me enormously through NLP techniques to minimise that voice and to access the resources I had in myself all along that were just waiting to come to the fore. Her grasp of these techniques and her ability to coach them in others has really enabled me to take the next steps in my journey. Thank you so much."

-Annette Turner, Project Manager, UK
