Why Train to Use Collage as A Coaching Tool?
Collage provides a unique way of working with your clients that has long term and far reaching benefits. When you become a trained UnglueYou Imagery coach, you will be equipped to work with your clients using collage and support them to achieve the following key outcomes:
Unlocking unconscious thinking so that your client increases their self-awareness, leading to clarity and focus on the direction they want to go. Empowering them to create personal goals and objectives that they are going to succeed in.
Building confidence and self-belief*, equipping clients with the courage to really stretch their comfort zone and take bolder decisions to improve their personal and professional lives.
Connecting emotionally with goals means clients are more strongly motivated to achieve the change they want to see.
A non-threatening way of expressing difficult emotions allows hidden blocks, mindsets and feelings preventing clients from moving forward to be expressed in a psychologically safe way. Empowering them to prioritise areas for change that enables real growth.
Promoting mindfulness* and wellbeing as clients become engaged in a creative arts-based coaching method which creates the space and time to feel calm. Alleviating any anxiety and stress during the session and longer term.
The tangible output of their completed collage ensures they leave the session with a powerful, positive visual aid to motivate, inspire, encourage and guide them every single day. *Research by MSc Psychology students from Kent and City University, London
