Mindfulness + Personal Coaching
As a credentialed ICF coach and trained mindfulness instructor, I integrate traditional mindfulness teaching with the client-focused support of personal coaching.
Mindfulness provides a foundation for living life consciously - more understanding of ourselves and aware of our habits, with more clarity and perspective on how we are living our life and the potential for deeper insight into the bigger picture of things:
What’s important to us, what we value and what represents a meaningful life. This vision becomes a powerful basis for creating change and informs a more authentic coaching process - from setting goals to making choices and decisions, to identifying and responding to life’s ups and downs as well as to your own personal challenges.
Mindful awareness is simultaneously the backdrop and the leading light in making meaningful progress and change, while personal coaching helps guide and direct that process in a supportive, structured and focused way.
"Mindfulness is not about becoming a different person, new person, or a better person. It is about training in awareness and understanding of how and why you think and feel the way you do and getting a healthy sense of perspective in the process. It just so happens that when you do, any changes you want to make in life become that much more feasible.”
How It Works
During the introductory session we will discuss your personal needs and tailor your programme accordingly. A typical coaching programme consists of:
- 8 weekly one-to-one sessions
- 70 mins per session (90 mins for session 1)
- Daily home practice (up to 20 mins a day)
The first half of the programme is all about training your mind - developing strong mindfulness skills, rooted in regular practice. Training your muscles of attention develops the capacity for mindful awareness of your own internal experience (thoughts, feelings and emotions) and therefore the ability to step back from them. Seeing your world with more clarity, perspective and calm enables you to choose how to respond to thoughts and begin to break cycles of unhelpful or unhealthy habits. By observing and understanding what the mind is doing you are empowered to take more control of your life.
The second half develops these skills within a wider perspective - understanding and integrating mindfulness into your daily life - for example, at work, in relationships, in stressful situations etc.
We identify the specific areas of your life which you would like to see change in and work together to set goals and strategic action steps to move towards them.
My personalised coaching approach allows us to make the most of what you learn and tailor the process to support you most effectively; whether it be in terms of targeting your general health and well-being, breathing life into your most important relationships or supporting the focus, energy and calm required to perform at your best at work or in your study.
Every client brings their own set of circumstances to coaching and takes away something uniquely valuable to them.
An essential element of the course is the Home Practice which provides the opportunity to apply the formal practices covered during the sessions to your everyday life. Just a few minutes a day makes a big difference!
Your programme is accompanied by a handbook designed to support your progress between sessions by providing guidance for the home practice and a place to record and reflect on your experiences as you develop throughout the course.
