What is Mindfulness?

 

Mindfulness in your natural ability to be fully present & aware, when practiced intentionally it can help you slow down, feel clear, centred & more at ease. Sounds easy enough but so often our mind gets lost in thoughts, we lose touch with our body & soon enough we are ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.

 

Some of the reported benefits of mindfulness include reducing stress, anxiety & rumination, improved focus, working memory & less emotional reactivity. As well as more psychological flexibility, presence, emotional understanding, relationship connection, creativity and embodiment. Mindfulness can improve your sleep & help you feel calm, clearer & connected. 

 

Mindfulness practice develops compassion, wisdom & insight. Mindfulness can help you expand your awareness, gain clarity & be more intentional about the way you live & work. In mindfulness coaching and counselling you can expect to participate in formal & informal practices, learn new life skills and be guided through conversations about the insights and challenges of being human & your experience.

What is my approach to Mindfulness Coaching and Counselling?

Mindfulness coaching & counselling draws from evidence-based training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) & Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) that makes up the large body of scientific research in mindfulness. Other influences include Buddhist psychology, mindfulness neuroscience, attachment theory, mindful self-compassion (MSC), trauma informed mindfulness & Mindful movement (Yoga & Dance). This work is holistic, underpinned by non-dualistic philosophy & has the assumption the body mind is a self organising system that is interconnected to a larger ecosystem.

The approach to mindfulness coaching & counselling is more than learning meditation - formal practice is part of it but we engage in dialogue & inquiry that is mindfulness centred.  Marion has had a lifelong mindfulness practice of more than 35 years & extensive University level training in Mindfulness-Based Counselling & Coaching approaches. She is also trained in the gold standard, evidence-based MBSR Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn & involved in continued professional development & supervision.

My work with clients is holistic, present focussed & non-clinical; I don't believe in quick fixes to often complex & systemic issues. The process involves integrating the mind, body & emotions to foster healing, insight, connections, transformation & growth. My strengths are in holding space for the deep dive of inner work & providing creative, fiercely compassionate & wise counsel. 

 

I specialise in the process of helping clients develop mindfulness & compassion; inclusive of the wider context of one's life, work & the earth. I am educated in Trauma-Informed, Mindfulness Based Therapies, Coaching, Counselling & Psychotherapies as well as receiving mentorship & supervision. I've been in private practice for over 15 years & have worked extensively in educational & organisational wellbeing & leadership.
