Mindfulness Coaching is provided 1 to 1 or in group programs and workshops. It's helpful for people seeking to feel more balance, insight & connection in their lives. The body mind is a naturally self-organising system & given the right support & conditions you can develop a self-healing approach & sustainable life pathway.
Our approach is dynamic, present-centred & mind body integrative. Mindfulness helps with having more ease in relation to the past, insight in the present moment & a greater ability to discern for the future. Reduce stress, anxiety & depression, build your self compassion & cognitive flexibility. Identify emotional triggers, regulate your nervous system & breakthrough barriers to conscious & self-aware growth.
Having a life long mindfulness practice, with extensive training in counselling, mindfulness & coaching, private practice & facilitation in organisations - for over 15 years my programs are informed by science & taught from lived embodiment.

What approaches do I use in Mindfulness Coaching?
Exploring the interconnection of the body mind; mindfulness coaching & holistic counselling draws from my training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) & Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) & studies in Buddhist psychology. Informed also by training in mindfulness neuroscience, attachment theory, eco-therapy, psychodynamic theories, mindful self-compassion (MSC), trauma informed mindfulness based counselling, polyvagal theory & Mindful movement (Yoga & Dance). Sessions explore your inner experience in mindfulness practice, role playing, inquiry, creative journalling, movement & through the lens of compassion, equanimity & your natural wisdom.

Kind Words from Clients
Tess Milne | Interior Designer
"I came to Marion to do the 8 week Mindfulness course to help understand and see if I could improve a work environment that was quite stressful. Marion gave me the tools to deal with conflict in the workplace and to manage my stress, through assertiveness and various types of meditation. This was also assisted via her honest feedback on the work scenarios’ that I discussed in the sessions.
The course gave me more confidence to tackle tricky situations and to be more self assertive.
It also helped me become aware of the things that really matter in my life.I definitely would recommend this program to anyone that would like assistance through a challenging time."
Wendy Fayad | Restaurant Owner | Counsellor | Student
"When I first approached Marion I felt extremely helpless career-wise and lost in terms of the direction my life was heading. Marion helped me practice mindfulness; increased my self-awareness and boosted my resilience. After only 8 sessions with Marion, I developed a sense of confidence that enabled me to apply myself to all situations, which has encouraged me to enrol in the degree I always wanted to do. Thank you so much Marion for all your support. You care for your clients truly and faithfully and I am so honoured to have had someone so wise and compassionate as my personal coach."-
Caitlin | Uni Student
"Marion is a warm, welcoming and empathetic professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her on specific areas of concern in my life. After completing the 8-week mindful based coaching I am now less stressed and feel my life is more well-rounded and balanced. I have gained valuable tools and skills to assist me in working through future challenges in all areas of my life. I found that regular sessions, working through the program and the meditation practice incorporated into the program, gave me clarity about my needs and desires, and assisted me in maintaining boundaries to stay true to my authentic self."
Richard Harrison | CTO | Bueno
