Coaching and Counselling

Mindfulness based coaching

In the process of mindfulness based coaching we look at putting in place goals and actions that will help you live with less stress and anxiety, more purpose and increased meaning and joy.  Scientifically proven mindfulness based strategies are used.

Description

Coaching can be for a range of life issues for you individually or focus on your workplace around values, culture and relationships. It is generally a forward looking process where we assist you in bringing about the change you desire.

As therapists and coaches our role is to be fully present with clients in a way that allows them to explore their various issues. We assist clients to mindfully gain a greater understanding of how their thoughts, emotions and habitual patterns are influencing their lives and causing stress and anxiety. We assist them to develop tools and ways to manage these more effectively to allow increased acceptance, peace, fulfilment and joy.

How we work

We have had training in numerous modalities and theoretical approaches which allows us to work in a holistic way with clients and tailor our approach to each individual. At the heart of our practice is our relationship as this is the place where change starts to occur. We believe that through our empathic and understanding approach we are able to create a trusting open space for our sessions.

Influences

Our work is influenced by mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT),  positive psychology, various coaching approaches, brief dynamic therapy, focusing and cutting edge neuroscience. Our work is also influenced by our own personal development and the positive learning experiences and knowledge we have taken from it.

Relationship

Being able to connect with your coach/therapist and the developing relationship is an essential part of change. We feel that we are able to bring present awareness, calmness, compassion and empathic support into our sessions with clients
