Service Overview

Mindfullness Coaching

Mindfulness is the process of purposely bringing your attention to experiences occurring in the present moment without judgment. Mindfulness can be developed through coaching, the practice of meditation, and through other training.

Mindfulness involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there's a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment.
 

 

Mindfullness

Center Yourself

The importance of being social is emphasized in the modern world, but it is equally important to put aside a few moments of the day for peace and solitude. In a world where we are constantly connected to others through technology, taking a few minutes each day to allow the mind to settle can be incredibly beneficial. Within a more meditative altered  state of mind, you are more likely to experience the creative inspiration or intuitive insight that comes from accessing more layers of your consciousness.

Mindfullness

Meditate

Taking a few moments of solitude creates space in our day to meditation. Making inner space is particularly crucial at the start of the day because it will impact how you perform for the rest of it. Meditation prepares your mind for the challenges in your day ahead through a process of finding balance and clarity.

Move Your Body

Regular exercise leads to a whole range of health benefits that include improved mood and emotional well-being as well as the more evident fitness benefits. You don’t need to be an elite athlete to make exercise part of your life. Studies have found that even walking and nonaerobic exercises, like strength, flexibility training, and yoga, can have a marked effect on emotional well-being. Walking can be a meditation practice because it helps us develop a sense of mindfulness by maintaining open awareness. 

Connect with Nature

We are all part of the natural order, and maintaining contact with nature is vital if we want to enjoy physical and emotional well-being. Within an urban environment, I often find it immensely useful to walk or sit in a park and observe my surroundings. Connecting with nature is a grounding experience where your priorities come into clearer focus, and you achieve a state of higher creativity.

Be Compassionate Without Judgement

Approaching life “mindfully” involves approaching experiences with an open and non-judgmental mentality, which invariably leads towards a kinder and more understanding outlook when dealing with others. We are all encoded with the inherent tendency to be compassionate, and we are indeed “born to be good.” Mindfulness naturally facilitates caring for others by working to improve the lives of others. Living in this authentic way enables us to experience a more fulfilling and more vibrant life, enhanced by these acts of generosity.

Practice Gratitude

The practice of gratitude sharpens our attention for the good and the positive in our lives, which helps us appreciate things that we tend to take for granted. Yet, despite the significant power of gratitude to improve our well being, recognition has its limitations. It can help us notice the positive, but it cannot eliminate adverse events from our lives. No matter how much we practice gratitude, we are still bound to experience negative emotions like disappointment, guilt, vulnerability, and grief.

When someone suddenly loses a loved one, they cannot be grateful for their loss. Gratitude can help them focus on the beautiful memories they shared with their loved ones and appreciate the past. But gratitude cannot eliminate the grief that they feel every day as they have to live in a world where their loved one is not present.

How Mindfulness Works?

Mindfulness works by helping you accept your experiences, including painful emotions.

Mindfulness reduces your tendency to react to painful emotions with aversion and avoidance.

Combining mindfulness with psychotherapy helps my clients gain perspective on non-adaptive and self-defeating thoughts.
