Diagonal Reframe – Life coaching series

Diagonal Reframe – Life coaching series

Diagonal Reframe - Life coaching series

So continuing this life coaching series with the diagonal reframe NLP technique. This can change how you feel very quickly and move you into a resourceful state in an instant.


The diagonal reframe is a brand new technique and cutting edge so please stay tuned for how to do it in this post.


This has been taught to me by my mentor Mike Mandel. Mike has continued to be at the cutting edge of personal change and communication since 1975. He still continues to astound us with what he brings to personal development.


So the great news is that the diagonal reframe is quick, easy to do and changes emotional issues in an instant. So follow the procedure I will outline now. Or just skip to the video right at the bottom of this post.


Remember when you reframe something you change the way you feel, view or consider something to a completely new perspective.


The diagonal reframe and how to do it with ease.


Take a feeling and as an example feeling lazy. Take that feeling and really get in touch with its embodied intensity and how it actually manifests and feels in your body.

Note: this is not for trauma


  1. Stand with your shoulders and head looking forward comfortably locked in that forward position. Look down and to your right. Almost as if you are looking just to the area to the right of your right foot.
  2. Really get a sense of that emotional feeling of lazy being in this area and manifest it physically. Really work this feeling up and intensify it.
  3. Imagine you take it between your hands and grab the lazy feeling.
  4. Move the lazy feeling from this area and move it through the area of the bridge of your nose. Then up to your top left.
  5. Notice the picture that the lazy feeling has now become. If you see a picture then good. If you are like me and you just know what it is by words then that’s good too. If you have to pretend what the picture is then just do what works and allow your unconscious to tell you what it is.
  6. Smile, breathe, shut your eyes, shake off your body and relax.
  7. Now notice how that feeling has completely gone and check it has worked.


The diagonal reframe is that simple and easy to do.


Note: If you are left handed the following video explains that the positions are shifted to the bottom left and then to top right.


If this is not working for you then you really have to get the physical feelings and manifest them and trust that you can and will do this.

Also, trust what your unconscious mind throws up as a picture just trust it. As I said it could be an actual picture.

Or just words so just accept them or if you have to pretend then just pretend.


Please see this video of how to do the diagonal reframe and how easy it is to do.

The Literal Reframe NLP Life Coaching Technique

This is a personal life coaching NLP technique called Literal Reframe NLP Life Coaching Technique you can take anywhere and do anywhere where nobody even knows you’re doing it at all.


The beauty of this is that you can change a past event in your mind so that the emotional intensity is changed within the neurology and chemistry in your brain thus re-coding that event inside your brain. So if you do that you will no longer be affected in the same way you were


So if you do this simple technique you will no longer be affected in the same way you were before. So can create emotional freedom and brain changes and can be happier, more productive and free to run your own brain in a way that serves you.


I will post a step by step video after the written run down for you here for the Literal Reframe NLP Life Coaching Technique


  1. Pull up a picture/image / event of something you want to change
  2. Freeze frame that picture at the emotional intensity point of the memory (this is a crucial step so please take care to do this)
  3. Make the picture black and white
  4. Make the picture grainy and indistinguishable
  5. Push it away with your hands as far as you can so its small into the distance
  6. Place a picture frame around that small, dark grainy, indistinguishable image you can’t make out and place it on a wall in your mind
  7. Place a picture light above it like the ones in picture galleries or museums
  8. Physically reach out and switch the light on with your hand
  9. leave it all there as it is now
  10. Now close your eyes, breathe, stand tall and confidently and shake off your body and get on with your day.


Tomorrow check that event in your mind and you will find you have re-coded it in your brain and it is now quite different.


See below for a video to help even more with this simple and very powerful Literal Reframe NLP Life Coaching Technique.



So check tomorrow and you will find the emotional intensity has changed and you have actually recoded your experience of it internally in your brain. It’s as simple as that.

Hypnosis and life coaching how does that one work then?

Hypnosis and life coaching – editorial


Before we start it’s probably best that I dispel some old fashioned rumours and confirm some truths too about hypnosis and life coaching.


What is absolute rubbish when people talk about hypnosis?

  • It’s not a thing where you would things that would go against your morals or anything you would do in real life.
  • It’s not mind control where someone else puts you under their power and manipulates you at all.
  • You cannot get stuck in a trance. Could you get stuck reading a book? No you couldn’t and neither can you in a trance.
  • Hypnotists don’t swing watches in front of you to get you in a trance. That’s a thing of movies.


What’s the truth then?hypnosis and life coaching editorial image saying a movie myth

  • Hypnosis is relaxing and helps you become so relaxed that critical and negative thinking is bypassed whilst you are in a trance.
  • Hypnosis gets you to stop thinking about what you don’t want and puts your attention onto what you do want.
  • Hypnosis helps you think in different ways you normally wouldn’t so is very supportive of focussing on solutions and resources


Why life coaching with hypnosis then?

This is how our brains work and how they process information in conscious thought using our short term memory – we can only handle or process 7 + or – 2 pieces of conscious things at a time. This is according to up to date neuroscience research and studies.


Just to make that more real for you –

  1. Think about what you can look at now
  2. What you can hear right now
  3. What you can feel physically
  4. What your emotions are now
  5. Your opinion from memory in this moment
  6. Your taste in your mouth
  7. The smell around you

This is what your brain can cope with in the present moment in short term memory.


But the subconscious mind processes between 2 and 20 million pieces of information or data in the background. We are talking about blood pressure, your pulse, stomach digestion, skin shedding, and your dreams at night, stored memories and eye blinking to mention some.


Creating more freedom by using hypnosishypnosis and life coaching editorial image with a key

Our memory is like a store of our resources, skills and abilities and they have always been there stored away and available but sometimes out of our conscious touch or reach. Or so we thought!!


So an alternative to having an intellectual conversation with a coach can be using hypnosis. Trance work can help to re-engage with your resources and make them available to your conscious mind by bringing them back into your awareness again.


So if you think of resources like tools we are able to dust them off, pick them up and put them into action again. So for problem-solving or improvement hypnosis can be great for inspiration and creating a new direction.


So the last thing before coming out of trance the hypnotist may ask is something like “what are your new opportunities you found? And when you are ready to bring them forward come out of trance Now!”


I often find having a notebook for the person to write down these new insights is a great way to capture them straight away.


So if you want to be helped to get out of your own way perhaps it’s time to, book a hypnosis appointment Now!
