Mindfulness Coaching for Good Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mindfulness Coaching Is Not Counselling

“I’m not interested in your problems, your worries and all of the terrible things that happened to you.  My job is to free you from all of that, to teach you how to create some quiet space in your  mind  and break out of that mental suffering so you can live a happy and rewarding life”

Over the last 20 years I’ve helped hundreds of people recover from stress, anxiety, depression addictions and all kinds of issues. If you can buy into my approach  I can help you too”

Mindfulness Coaching Works on 3 Levels

Mind

As you create the space to observe your thoughts you’ll see that 80 – 90% of your suffering is mind created. You’ll  learn how to let go of unhelpful and troubling patterns of thinking that may have caused you suffering for years

Body

Life hurts, sht happens, we can’t avoid that. It’s how we deal with it that’s important, you’ll learn how to manage emotional pain within your body without reacting and repeating destructive unconscious patterns of behaviour. 

Soul

It doesn’t matter how successful you become in the material world or how many goals you achieve, until you discover your spiritual core it’s not possible to be truly at peace and fulfilled. All healing is ultimately spiritual healing

Here's The science

Did you know that Mindfulness isn't just about dealing with stress? Mindfulness actually rewires your brain. Scientists have discovered that by practising mindfulness you can extinguish unhelpful synaptic connections and increase your grey matter and create new connections in new areas of the brain. Scientists call this neuroplasticity, your brain is not fixed it is ever-changing and you can consciously change your brain and take control of how your mind works.  ... Mindfulness actually goes way beyond what research has discovered but here's what is known so far.Mindfulness increases the grey matter in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a structure located deep inside the forehead, behind the brain’s frontal lobe. The ACC is associated with self-regulation, meaning the ability to purposefully direct attention and behaviour, suppress inappropriate knee-jerk responses, and switch strategies flexibly. Mindfulness develops an area of the brain associated with emotions and emotional regulation. It doesn't stop you feeling emotions, but gives you the mental space to deal with them in a healthy way, it won't protect you from the up's and down and the challenges of life but it will develop areas of the brain so that you can deal with them effectively and make clear choices rather than being prone to reaction. In addition to self-regulation, the ACC is associated with learning from past experience to support optimal decision-making. Scientists point out that the ACC may be particularly important in the face of uncertain and fast-changing conditions These findings are just the beginning of the story. Neuroscientists have also shown that practising mindfulness affects brain areas related to perception, body awareness, pain tolerance, emotion regulation, introspection, complex thinking, insight, emotional intelligence and our sense of self. In short, Mindfulness makes you resilient, helps you overcome negative emotions, deal with stress, helps you to override dysfunctional thinking patterns; Mindfulness helps you to make clear rational decisions and puts you back in control of your life, whatever it throws at you..

How it works

It’s £60 for the initial 1 hrs session – Which is less than you’d pay to get your car fixed

We’ll meet on zoom and have a mindful chat. I’ll be able to show you what I do and you’ll get a sense of me how I work and whether it’s right for you. I’ll be able to get a feel for you, your situation and most importantly whether I can help you. If I can’t help I’ll tell you, I’m too old, it’s exhausting and a waste of your time and money.

In reality, if you are drawn to this there’s a very good chance I can help you

After our chat, we can put together a plan from there. I usually work with people for between 6 and 10 weeks and that’s generally enough for most people. It’s a rubbish business model but, ultimately really fulfilling and I get to work with lots of new and interesting people, people like you
