What clients have said

Patrick’s unobtrusive coaching style allowed me to personally direct my own mindful exploration, and his interventions always felt considered & pertinent.  The absence of continual observation or suggestion resulted in coaching sessions which felt very ‘self-taught’, and Patrick skilfully used his commentary to challenge, reinforce or encourage my mindful development.

About Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a form of attention: relaxed, present-centered, and nonjudgmental. Knowing what's happening while it's happening.

It’s a faculty we all possess, and one that we can develop through training.

Why practise mindfulness?

From a wellness perspective, mindfulness practice is really good for us.

From a productivity perspective, mindfulness helps us to be both more productive and less stressed.

From a leadership perspective, mindfulness cultivates self-awareness by letting us witness our habitual patterns of thought, feeling and behaviour. These go unnoticed until we pay attention, and only then can they be shifted.

From a spirituality perspective, mindfulness allows us to cultivate a way of being that is fully open to our experience.

Any combination of these perspectives -- and others -- can motivate a person to learn mindfulness practice.

Why learn from me?

I've been practising mindfulness daily since 2005, including several intensive retreats.

I've studied in the framework of Tibetan Buddhism, the most systematic and profound framework for understanding mindfulness and its practice.

I've done a Coaching Diploma. It cultivated my skills of listening and inquiry and gave me useful ways to understand human learning processes.

I have experience. I've coached individuals from many walks of life and worked with organisations like Allan Gray, Clicks Group, Old Mutual and DSV Global Transport and Logistics.
