What is Possibility Coaching?
Windows are for seeing through. Doors are for going through. Bridges are for crossing over into new territory. Possibility Coaching opens windows, doorways, and bridges to entirely different futures for you to use if you choose.
The value of Possibility Coaching is that it gives you new options to choose from and the clarity and energy to transform new choices into new actions that create new results.
Modern western culture, particularly the mental health arts, are saturated in the Jungian / Freudian context of psychoanalysis developed a century-and-a-half ago, aimed at understanding your condition. This intellectual orientation fits perfectly with modern education's overemphasis on knowing as the highest value and has gone largely unquestioned as the best and proper approach.
However, during the past fifty years other modalities for optimizing the human condition have been quietly emerging as a result of diverse experimentation and careful note-taking.
One such form is Possibility Coaching, making use of the transformational forces and practical clarity of the tools, thoughtmaps, distinctions and adulthood initiatory processes of Possibility Management.
Possibility Coaching originates in a different context from psychoanalysis, and aims at different outcomes. The context of Possibility Coaching is possibility, radical responsibility, and authentic adulthood. The core assertion in the context of Possibility Coaching is that, "Something completely different from this is possible right now." The proof of this assertion is Possibility Coaching sessions.
During Possibility Coaching step-by-step procedures empower you to take back your own authority... for everything. Along the way as your various parts come together in new ways you probably never imagined, you happily discover that your mind (as well as your other four bodies) are yours to play with and make into whatever you want. A new future unrolls as a side-effect of you building inner capacities that welcome more awareness.
New behaviors start almost by surprise when upgraded thinking models give you new perceptions and viewpoints.
Clarity creates possibility.
Possibility opens new options to choose from.
You are the chooser.
What are the benefits?
Your authentic questions open spaces of possibility that you and the Coach can explore together. All questions are allowed. You get to go wherever you want to go.
Your vulnerable uncertainty may at first seem like a terrible handicap. You may be surprised when you discover how to use it as a rich magnet for empowered options during a Possibility Coaching session.
Clients bring such a multiplicity of cares, for example:
Panic, sadness, or anger attacks.
Loss of joy in life, lack of intimacy, sexual drabness, broken dreams, unfulfilled expectations.
Feeling betrayed, resentful, abandoned, unseen, not good enough.
Unfulfilling sexual encounters.
Seeing what should come next, but not knowing how to get there.
Sessions are also fantastic for supporting you to make big decisions:
How do I know if I should keep holding onto a job that I don't really want to do anymore?
Am I clinging into a relationship that does not nurture me anymore? What else is possible for me?
Who am I really? What am I here for? What's the point? What is my true calling?
How do I live in a world like this with people like them?
What if I am not certain? How can I get clarity and energy to make changes?
How can I connect with people or build a team?
It feels like something important is missing from my life... how can I find it?
Difficult circumstances are gateways to a brighter future whenever you have the courage to come sit in the Possibility Chair and ask for help.
How does a session begin?
No one can be in a coaching session for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from getting to one!
Scan the faces in the photos shown below, or somehow choose who you would like to have a Possibility Coaching session with. Even if their website is written in German or Nederlands or Portuguese, write or call them anyway. He or she probably speaks excellent English.
Most coaches can meet you either in person in their workspace or through a video call using Zoom, WhatsApp, or Skype. Arrange an appointment with your chosen Possibility Coach via telephone, email, or messaging.
The Coach will want you to have something like a Beep! Book in which to take notes about the new distinctions that you make in your session, plus perhaps clear instructions for experiments to try after the session.
In a simple and sacred way the safe space is established and your adventure journey begins.
The session will unfold in any of a variety of ways, none of which are predicted by the Coach. He or she is your navigation aid and support team.
In short, the Old Thoughtmap of Feelings tells you there are three 'negative' or 'bad' feelings (anger, sadness, and fear) and only one 'good' feeling (joy), but don't go around feeling too joyful or people will think you don't have enough work to do or that you don't take life seriously... haven't you seen the news? Maybe you're on drugs... The Old Thoughtmap of Feelings says that actually it is better not to feel at all. Then when someone asks you, "How are you ?" you can say, "I am fine," meaning, "I feel numb."
Fortunately there is a New Thoughtmap of Feelings. On the New Thoughtmap there are four neutral feelings (anger, sadness, fear, and joy), neither good nor bad, not positive or negative, providing you with 0% to 100% intense energy and information, unmixed, all day and all night, to use for delivering the services of your Archetypal Lineage. By starting a Possibility Coaching session on the New Thoughtmap of Feelings you can go for light years.
Not all of the Coaches shown below are experts in Possibility Management. As a matter of fact, no one is an expert in Possibility Management! Not even its originator Clinton Callahan - he would be the first one to tell you he is a rapid learner, not an expert.
The joy of Possibility Coaching is co-creating life-changing Possibilities together.
