Sometimes challenges in your personal or professional life can escalate until they feel overwhelming and you just don’t know how to move forward. You lose confidence in yourself and your ability to make decisions. You feel stuck, unsure what to do next and your inner critic chatters away with a loud and relentless voice that makes you feel even worse.
Whether you are facing into a particularly difficult event, or trying to handle several different issues at the same time, it can really get you down and hold you back from living the life you want to live.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. With 18 years’ experience in coaching individuals and teams, I have witnessed many people improving their personal and professional lives as they come to understand themselves and how to manage their emotional responses. The techniques within focused mindfulness also enable you to release your deepest and most painful emotional responses so that you emerge with a greater sense of freedom and the resilience to handle whatever life throws in your path.
As a result of this approach, people find they increase their personal resourcefulness and the ability to create productive and effective relationships with others.
