A coach is a professional who is skilled at assisting others in discovering and maximizing innate potential. Mindfulness coaching can help you tap into your natural ability to live life fully, with presence and wisdom. Guidance and mentoring is provided by your coach in establishing intentions, such as increasing awareness, insight, and balance, or cultivating compassion for self and others, as well as in sustaining efforts toward fulfilling these intentions.
