Kind Words from My Clients
Joel Whiteoak | Marketing Manager | Bunnings
Having worked with Marion for the past 8-weeks on this Mindfulness journey there was some real detail and a great approach to how Mindfulness can be taught. Marion is a very warm and inviting coach and would highly recommend her for anyone looking to take on or further enhance their Mindfulness and mental resilience.
Michelle Derobaix | Nurse Educator & Coach
Marion really made me aware of what my passion really was and encouraged me to go for that. I have finally started making money in my business which is a first and this gave me confidence to keep going. She also kept focusing on the things I had achieved which I kept forgetting even though it wasn't obvious to me. Working with Marion and the leads she gave me spurred me on to look beyond what I was focusing on. She was a great support and in the short time I was being coached by her I look back and see I achieved a lot more than I thought. Thank you Marion:)
Taryn Peck | CEO The Joyful Edit
I thought you might like to know that you have made a huge impact on my future direction. After our sessions, and the reason that sharing and creating joy is my why, supported by a love or travel and food, I have created The Joyful Edit. The idea was initially to improve my writing skills, but it’s morphed into something all of its own. Super happy and excited about the direction ahead! Thank you so much - you really have made a huge difference in my life.
Saviano Roselen | Horse Trainer | Bee Keeper
"Marion is a very skilled person who had the ability of understanding and support me through a 12 week journey. Marion has helped me to visualise with more clarity my life path, my strengths and my goals. Marion is also a mindfulness coach and she has introduced me to the meditation practice which is now became part of my daily routine. I highly recommend Marion to all those people who want to boost the quality of life."
Sonia Chen | Administration
Thanks to all of your guidance and support last year I am doing really well and starting a new job next week. My website is being built right now and I'm doing a photoshoot session! Thank you for everything! I'm looking forward to the meditation program to start in October
Louise Daniels | YWCA | Operations Manager
“ I participated in the 8 week Mindfulness Course which focussed on professional resilience, leadership and change management in the workplace. I found Marion to be extremely insightful and down to earth. I gained valuable insight into assessing work relationships, managing stress and decision making. I learned to meditate and now practise this daily, but more importantly, I regained my self-confidence and made some positive decisions throughout my eight week course. Huge thanks to Marion for support, empathy and kindness. I would recommend Marion to anyone wishing to learn mindfulness and gain balance in their life.”
Adai Alagu | Enterprise Architect | Coles
"Marion is incredibly intuitive, a wonderful listener and highly pragmatic mindfulness coach. She has been extremely helpful in assessing my strengths and passion to build a vision for my professional and personal life. I have gained valuable tools and coaching from Marion to be more present and to listen respectfully. She has certainly increased my self-awareness during challenging situations. Marion is an inspiration for me and my partner to meditate every day to transform our life more calmer and happier. I am very grateful to have worked with her during challenging period professionally and highly recommend her coaching to anyone who is looking to transform their life happier and healthier"
Molly | Bueno Systems.
"I felt that the topic was really relevant for me personally at the moment. As a result of struggling with wellness during lockdown, but also having a bit more time and "space" potentially improve my wellness I have been wanting to approach some wellness goals in a semi-structured way.I wasn't really sure where to start but I think today's workshop has given me a really good place to start with creating a few goals, including some more mindful goals than running 5k! So I just wanted to say thank you for recognising what would be most helpful and tailoring the program to suit."
Rebecca Kartel | CEO | The Kartel Solution
"Marion coached me through a time of significant change. She helped me understand my strengths and provided me with a different perspective surrounding my business goals and objectives.
Marion’s calm and insightful approach not only gave me extra confidence, but empowered me both professionally and personally. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
Jennifer Howard | Eastern Health | Nursing Manager
"I found myself in a privileged position at work. I wanted to work to the best of my ability and keep up my motivation and level of functioning at work to ensure I performed well and continued to keep the door open into new opportunities at work. But found other areas of my life were suffering from some neglect. I was giving all my energy to work and not enough to me, being consumed with worry about my performance and that I was doing the best I could do.
Marion helped me to understand the things that are important to me and helped me to focus some attention on those things to get some balance back in my life. She also helped me to realise that my worry was wasted energy, and I soon realised that everything was always better than I thought it was going to be. I would be worrying about situations, live the reality of the situation and realise things were always OK. I now know that while my worry is good to keep me on the right track, I am actually doing better than I give myself credit for.
I was also having trouble with a colleague. I would go home consumed with negative feelings from the encounters I’d had with her. Marion helped me to recognise that I had control of how I felt during these encounters and the relationship has improved, I am no longer giving her the energy I need to reserve for myself and for giving love to my family.
I am grateful for the assistance Marion has given me and I’m sure I will be seeing her again in the future. It really helps that have someone help you understand your situation from an objective point of view."
Mary Russo | Personal Assistant NAB | MBA Student
“I engaged Marion during a most stressful time at work, with a great deal of restructuring taking place. Marion was able to assist me in gaining clarity and calmness to enable me to make better informed decisions which empowered me to forge ahead. I particularly found the mediation exercises very beneficial, specifically during sleepless nights and with ongoing headaches due to stress. Marion gave me perspective that I had not gained before, I was able to detach and assess with simplicity. Overwhelmed in my thoughts, I became lighter as we moved through the practise of mindfulness. I am a much less stressful and fearful person. Her explanation of how we function during times of stress, enabled me to better understand myself during these times, which assisted in overcoming these emotional events and brought with it much calmness and peace of mind. I can’t thank Marion enough for her work and how it helped me through a very difficult time in my life. It is powerful knowledge that can assist, not only in work life, but also in personal life and remains with you forever! “
Richard Harrison | CTO | Bueno
"Marion is an incredibly talented and insightful coach who helped me become a more resilient, balanced and mindful person. During our sessions, I learned how to meditate effectively and developed strategies to help cope with life’s ups and downs - both are now an essential part of my everyday existence. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to reset their work/life balance, learn mindfulness and improve their leadership skills."-
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."
Julian Sanders | CEO
"I would commend Marion's professionalism and skill in identifying and strengthening aspects of the client's psychology that they weren't even aware of and could benefit from. The supporting documentation and references to books and online material offers a highly valuable ongoing support for clients. I'd highly recommend Marion to others in a heartbeat." - Julian Sander | CEO | Sparks Brewing and Distillery.
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 coaching package 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."
Paul Pares | Property Development
"I feel uncomfortable showing my emotions, hence the reason why I tried to put a lid on it quickly, but the emotion was overwhelming me on this occasion. The subject matter was quite pertinent to me and I felt a wave of tingles all over my body, I knew at that moment I had just felt something very profound and it was liberating. I felt emotional because
of how wound up I am, and the thought of lifting this weight, even for a brief moment was wonderful. Driving home I feel even more resolute to learn to accept, be in the moment and put an end to the things that hold me to ransom. You've been great Marion, transforming my life is no easy task, but I feel I'm on the right path."
Jackie Kari | Writer | Melbourne
"Before my first meeting with Marion I was critical, scared and vulnerable for that simple reason we all refer to as fear. When we finally met I couldn't help but notice her warm and caring demeanour. She listened and challenged me to realise my ultimate potential in all areas of life. Being our first meeting, I was overwhelmed yet pleased by Marion's positivity, ability to listen and the degree of frankness she helped me express. She challenged me to set career goals that were at the cutting edge of my capability and this has given me the strength to set out and achieve them. She also inspired self-belief which in the long ran has helped me realise it is OK to fall, dust yourself and try again.
Life coaching is second nature to Marion, and I would strongly recommend her if you are looking for a life coach to mentor and inspire you on your journey in life."
Chelsea Purje | HR Specialist- Emirates Airline & Group.
"I had the privilege of being coached by Marion when I was on leave in NYC. I am currently in the post of a Human Resource Specialist with Emirates Airline and my job requires that I travel quite frequently to all parts of the world. Marion was able to provide me with tips on managing my jet lag and diet, in addition to my way of thinking and I felt that her advice helped me to 'not sweat the small stuff!'. Coupled with Marion's expertise and advise I found her to be an exceptional listener, both caring and empathic. Given my schedule and the different time zones, Marion was always flexible, ready to accommodate and make an appointment that would suit us both. I highly recommend Marion for anyone that is looking to refocus their career, a shift in their thinking or even just general 'housekeeping' with everyday life".
Dr.Simonne Jameson Ph.D | Psychotherapist & Counselling
I supervise in my life many young people, but never find someone so dedicated, compassionate, professional, reliable and trusting in her way of dealing with people from all walks of life and all age groups. Marion‘s thirst for learning and adaptation to any situation is remarkable. I would like to recommend her to any person wishing to improve their life and live to their real potential. I am happy to be associated with her, and give further information if required."
