True lasting change requires a shift that is accepted, at the subconscious level.

Unless the subconscious mind absorbs and accepts a new way of being, a new patterned response, change will not be permanent. There is a realistic systematic process of habituation that occurs whether we are looking at patterns that serve us or ones that infringe on the quality of our lives.

We can hope for change, cross our fingers, and fool ourselves into believing that sheer will power alone will create the life circumstances we desperately hope for, but until the subconscious mind is –re-educated we will continue to experience the same challenges over and over again.

The subconscious mind:

  • stores our history and is the seat of our identity
  • runs outdated programs based on beliefs installed during times of vulnerability
  • serves up the same thoughts, feelings and behaviours over and over again
  •  the subconscious mind has a robotic nature stubborn nature
  • the job of the subconscious mind is to maintain a path of least resistance aka “cow path
  • resists half hearted attempts to create new programming


Without a keen understanding of how the subconscious mind operates all change efforts are wasted. Time and time again traditional therapeutic processes fail to support deep meaningful lasting change that can be comfortably maintained. Traditional depletes motivation for many individuals.

We must understand the primitive automatic need to preserve what is. Often “what is” does not serve us. The self-image, deeply embedded within the subconscious mind is either useful or debilitating guiding force.

At the core most individuals do not believe that they are capable of creating the life they truly want. Most people do not believe that they have the capacity to be the CEO of their lives and be in charge of their thought, feeling and behavior habits. This work supports people to move beyond complacency and restructure the subconscious mind for permanent change.

This work is founded on the belief that most people have accepted a victim mentality that sabotages change efforts. This mentality is the result of a life time of social programming that encourages the masses to think, feel and behave in prescribed manners. Children learn early to tow the line or risk the fear of shame, rejection and emotional abandonment. Adults continue to be influenced in a multitude of ways that serves to strengthen dis-empowered subconscious programming.


We are meant to grow, expand, learn and thrive. This innate desire is as strong as the need to preserve "what is." These two opposing forces create the internal combustion that leads people down the path of anger, depression, anxiety and addiction. These responses to the challenges of fighting ones tendencies become habitual ways of being. Once negative patterns are developed the job of the subconscious mind is to resist new ways of being, to maintain cow paths and exert as little energy as possible.

The subconscious mind will accept new ways of being and a new self-image only once its needs are met. Moving away from the victim mentality that accepts oneself as angry, anxious, depressed or addicted means supporting the subconscious mind to accept an identity of oneself being capable of learning new ways of being, including a shift in thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In this work this program is referred to as becoming the CEO of one’s life.

We have the option to program a persona that is in keeping with our potential, our dreams and vision of what we would like our lives to be like. Current goal setting is crucial in this work. Many people struggle their whole lives trying to fulfill the dream or ideal that early programmers (aka parents) had for them. Yet, with the right tools and strategies, life can be very different. Life isn't meant to be hard. The major premise of the work here is that our challenges are learned and accepted by the subconscious mind.

Supporting the subconscious mind to accept and deeply absorb a new reality requires a systematic framework. True lasting changes requests new beliefs. The subconscious mind must accept a new self-image, one that is congruent with updated (not old programmed) goals. Two levels of support are available, see below.
