In the same way exercise increases your endurance and strengthens your muscles, mindfulness practices increase your focus, clarity and composure. These practices are just that– practice. The first time you run up the stairs, it may be hard to catch your breath. Do you say— well, that’s that, it didn’t work. Nope. You know you need to stick with it. Keep trying and your endurance will improve. With mindfulness practices, things also improve over time. Like a personal trainer at the gym, I can coach you on a range of mindfulness awareness techniques and help you stick with them.
(for people who can't say the “M” word)
Meditation not your cup of tea? Meditation is only one technique to become more mindful. Learn other mindfulness techniques to decrease anxiety, enhance listening skills and be less reactive.
Mindfulness Coaching for Organizations or Individuals:
It’s not just that everything is getting on your nerves, it’s that everything is activating your nervous system. Understanding how your nervous system responds to stress is the first step in learning to more effectively regulate your emotions. Attendees will learn several simple techniques that are easily incorporated into everyday living in order to counteract the daily exposure to anxious and emotional people. These techniques not only counteract anxiety, but are also useful to increase focus, clarity, and composure in difficult situations. One-on-One or group sessions.
Lawyers are not social workers (at least most of us aren’t) and are not trained to work with clients who are experiencing various levels of trauma. Yet that is exactly what many of us do. Learn simple techniques that lawyers can easily incorporate into their client meetings or office time in order to counteract the difficulties of dealing with trauma-inflicted clients. These techniques are also useful to increase focus, clarity and composure in difficult situations, fundamental qualities for every lawyer to cultivate.
There’s a way to listen when you agree and a different way to listen when you disagree. For the workplace or the dinner table: help your colleagues and friends learn to mindfully listen and to communicate in a more open and effective way. Participants learn to recognize habitual modes of reacting and also enhance listening skills in order to clarify difference with respect. Workshops and individual sessions available.
