Product Description

Review

While you could read Helen Emms' 195 page 'Changing Mindsets & Developing Spirit' from cover to cover it would to some degree be missing the point - quite literally. Each of the 15 sections is introduced by a short explanation followed by some key coaching points in bullet point format. The 'magic' though is in the insightful verses that offer many interpretations on different levels. For Emms it is fear that is preventing us from leading successful and fulfilled lives and her approach for overcoming it, lies in the spiritual self. Her book and in particular her verses are a key to unlocking that connection. By making the reader aware of his or her feelings and thoughts she offers the unconscious - perhaps like a 'soft' sleight of mouth, the opportunity to change the mindset. While most verses are generalist in their approach, some appear to deal more specifically with sporting experiences and yet, these too, are a metaphor with opportunities to change the mindset and again connect more deeply with the spiritual self. It's a book to reread again and again, especially if you feel the day didn't go so well. --Rapport, The Magazine for Personal Development, Winter 2010/2011 by Timothy Hilgenberg

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. William Thomas on 17 April 2010
Format: Paperback
This is the first book of its kind to link coaching process and spirituality through poetry. A beautifully crafted work structurally, it guides you through 15 carefully considered themes, exploring emotions, mindsets,ego, confidence, performance and success through intuitively written verse. Every theme has a rich scene-setting section followed by practical coaching mantras and suggestions. Sections are packed with poetry which encapsulates, challenges and stimulates elements of each theme. You can read it cover to cover (as I did originally, in more or less one sitting) or dip into it by section according to how you desire to use this book. Trainers and facilitators will find the volume an excellent source of material for stimulating reflective thinking. Indivuduals can derive pleasure and resolution, and coaches will want to draw on the material and maybe even make this book part of their joining offer to new clients. No matter who you are or where you are in your life, you will find something in this book to touch you and motivate you. Alot of coaching out there, has been focused on the purely practical; this book helps coaches and coachees to transcend lower level thinking and operate at the highest levels of purpose and spirit whatever their field of endeavour.
Will Thomas, Performance and Author Coach

Format: Paperback
Helen teaches us about concepts that are necessary to change our lives in a positive way through poetry which is both inspiring and challenging. If you can keep an open mind this book is life changing. The unique combination of key coaching points and poems really works and helps us understand how to change old patterns of behaviour and thoughts that limit our potential in life. This is a fun and enjoyable read, whilst also being challenging and thought provoking. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to find contentment and deep satisfaction and learn to be who they were born to be.

Format: Paperback
Helen's new book "Changing Mindsets & Developing Spirit" is a book every person should have in their personal library.
Helen's writing not only opens your mind to the possibilities open to you but also how to forge ahead in realizing them for yourself.
The book is written in a poetic style which invokes the thought process to speak to your subconscious mind.
I really love this book and would recommend it to everyone who wants to change and make themselves even better than they already are

Format: Paperback
This new book by Helen is excellent. She writes with perception and sensitivity, yet with candour. There is a real energy in her writing and the contrast between the prose and the poetry is a brilliant way to retain attention. Flip the book open on any page and you will find inspiration. This is one book I will be recommending to my clients!
