Did you know that there is a blind-spot for many practitioners that makes all the difference in your client results?
This missing piece is one that doesn’t require you to be the most experienced or spend years studying to understand. In fact, you can start tackling it today with one simple tool – NER – and transform lives.
How are you addressing the unconscious drivers of behaviour?
You can put together an amazing treatment plan. But that doesn’t mean your client will follow it. This comes back to the unconscious drivers behind their behaviour and choices.
The unconscious mind drives our thoughts, feelings, belief systems, stress, even our emotional patterns. But this is something you won’t see directly – you’ll only see the results of these through the client’s behaviour.
Unfortunately, these drivers can play a massive role in unresolved health issues. The beliefs, stress and trauma that people experience throughout their lives can feed into a pattern of self-sabotage.
The important thing to understand is that the unconscious and the nervous system are not actually trying to hurt you. In fact, it’s designed to help and protect you. But it can work against what we truly want – to overcome illness, to feel healthy, to increase energy, to decrease stress, whatever the health goal may be.
How can this show up for clients?
There’s a good chance that you’re familiar with the signs of sabotage in clients, although you might not realise that is what’s going on! Some of the most common signs that practitioners see include:
- Weight loss struggles – unable to stick to food plan, give up unhealthy habits or be consistent with exercise
- Consistently failing to take supplements, even when they are adapted to the daily routine
- Eating foods that they know are triggering their symptoms e.g. gluten or dairy
- Feeling exhausted but still choosing to scroll through social media until late at night
- Drinking multiple cups of coffee even though they know it sets off their anxiety
- Skipping meals when they know it’s going to make them tired and less able to cope
- Being ‘good’ all week, only to drink 1-2 bottles of wine over the weekend when they know this feeds into other unhealthy behaviours
Sometimes your client will recognise that they go through this cycle. But other times, it’s up to you as a practitioner to identify the pattern for what it is.
What can be done?
This is where the missing part of the treatment plan comes into play. If we’re not addressing this pattern as practitioners, then we won’t be seeing the results we want – and nor will our clients.
On top of that, it also impacts your success as a practitioner and business owner because your clients won’t be out there raving about what an amazing job you did helping them!
What you need to understand is that you can’t make the unconscious pattern shift simply through a consult and plan based on the conscious mind. If you continue to tackle clients this way, they are at risk of falling off track and deciding that they’re a failure, it’s too hard, why should they bother?
The trick here is to assess the unconscious and what is happening in relation to your client’s wellbeing and goals. You can test the beliefs and the goals that the client is looking to achieve to see if there is any resistance there.
And if there is something holding them back? You address it so it feels safe for the body to engage in that healthy behaviour or habit.
This is where I use NER. It allows me to identify the driver behind their self-sabotage and clear that block on the spot. As a result, they walk away feeling lighter, more empowered, more in control – and their unconscious won’t be working against them anymore!
