Thank you for today. It was powerful and insightful for me. I feel uncomfortable showing my emotions, hence the reason why I tried to put a lid on it quickly, but the emotion was overwhelming me on this occasion. The subject matter was quite pertinent to me and I felt a wave of tingles all over my body, I knew at that moment I had just felt something very profound and it was liberating. I felt emotional because of how wound up I am, and the thought of lifting this weight, even for a brief moment was wonderful. Driving home I feel even more resolute to learn to accept, be in the moment and put an end to the things that hold me to ransom. You’ve been great Marion, transforming my life is no easy task, but I feel I’m on the right path.Paul Pares
“Marion was introduced to me at the most perfect time! I had recently taken over my business and was loaded with passion and ideas, yet there seemed to be absolutely no structure or order to how I was running things at that time. I felt totally out of balance between my role as a professional and as a mother. I needed coaching! I mentioned to Marion in my final coaching session last week that my head was like a box full of ideas and through working with her, I was able to empty that box and give those ideas structure whilst also finding more clarity in the direction I am heading both professionally and personally. Marion, you’re amazing! THANK YOU”Bianca Trainer
“My favourite takeaway from the session was ‘doing vs being’ ‘Do-ing referring to doing activities in auto-pilot mode. ‘Be-ing’ referring to being present when we do these activities. Today I choose the latter and now on my journey to being in the present! Thank you Melbourne Coach for a great workshop!”
One thing I can see happening is change, and that’s because I’m taking accountability. I’m loving this. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s meaningful. Really glad I started this process. Looking forward to a really positive week.
“I found myself in a privileged position at work. I wanted to work to the best of my ability and keep up my motivation and level of functioning at work to ensure I performed well and continued to keep the door open into new opportunities at work. But found other areas of my life were suffering from some neglect. I was giving all my energy to work and not enough to me, being consumed with worry about my performance and that I was doing the best I could do.
Marion helped me to understand the things that are important to me and helped me to focus some attention on those things to get some balance back in my life. She also helped me to realise that my worry was wasted energy, and I soon realised that everything was always better than I thought it was going to be. I would be worrying about situations, live the reality of the situation and realise things were always OK. I now know that while my worry is good to keep me on the right track, I am actually doing better than I give myself credit for.
I was also having trouble with a colleague. I would go home consumed with negative feelings from the encounters I’d had with her. Marion helped me to recognise that I had control of how I felt during these encounters and the relationship has improved, I am no longer giving her the energy I need to reserve for myself and for giving love to my family.
I am grateful for the assistance Marion has given me and I’m sure I will be seeing her again in the future. It really helps that have someone help you understand your situation from an objective point of view.”Jennifer Howard
