What clients have said

Many coaches fall into the trap of advising, often unconsciously imposing or suggesting solutions that may fit them or may seem the obvious way ahead. This way, the coachee may be misled into a direction which is not really his or her own. Perhaps the quality I found most beneficial in Patrick's coaching style is the fact that he has displayed a canny ability to avoid this trap and thus is capable of helping the coachee to get closer to solutions that will indeed fit him/her. And that is what coaching is meant to be.

Quotes

The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change.

 - R.D. Laing

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.
