Hi I’m Mairi, an accomplished Mindfulness and Life Coach, and former health practitioner with a passion for helping women unleash their true potential. With a diverse background in healthcare and education, I bring a unique blend of compassion, knowledge, and insight to my Coaching and Mindfulness practice.
For over a decade, I worked within in various hospitals helping to improving the lives of patients through my expertise in health and wellness. This experience ingrained in me a deep appreciation for the complexities of the body and mind and the importance of fostering well-being on both physical and emotional levels.
After a successful career in the medical field, I sought to expand my horizons and share my knowledge with a wider audience. This led me to embrace a new role as a lecturer. As well as teaching the subjects, I found the way in which individuals learn to be exceptionally interesting.
As an engaging and dynamic educator, I found fulfilment in inspiring the next generation of health professionals, empowering them to make a positive impact on the world.
The Shift to Yoga, Mindfulness and Life Coaching:
Driven by a desire to make more of a difference in people’s lives, to address personal growth in a more the holistic approach, as well as a desire to make some major changes in my career, I made a pivotal decision to transition to teach pregnant women and new mums how to physically and mentally take care of themselves through movement, breath and meditation. This evolved into teaching children Mindfulness in both primary and secondary schools.
My multifaceted background equipped me with a deep understanding of the human mind and the challenges individuals face with overthinking, negative thought patterns as well as the control the mind can have over us.
Training to be a growth coach felt like an obvious and easy next step to going deeper with my clients. My years of experience in healthcare and academia rooted me in empathy, active listening, and evidence-based practices and I wholeheartedly believe that every person possesses untapped potential and is capable of achieving their dreams.
Using a combination of Mindfulness and Coaching really helped me to make the decision to move our family, during covid, to Jávea, Spain.
Mindfulness enabled me to fully embrace the present moment, allowing me connect with my inner feelings, desires, and fears.
Through mindfulness, we can tune into our intuition, helping us understand whether a change in our life aligns with our core values and long-term goals. Additionally, coaching provided me with a structured process to explore the practical aspects, such as job opportunities, education options for the children, and the overall lifestyle change.
We are all so happy to have made the change to move from Blairgowrie, Perth, Scotland where we lived in picturesque village to the East Coast of Spain, between Alicante and Valencia.
Our desire was to live in a country where food, music and outdoor living was at the forefront of daily life. Here we are nearly 2 years down the line, speaking Spanish, eating fabulous food and spending more time outdoors!
My coaching philosophy revolves around the belief that transformation begins with self-awareness and self-acceptance. I help women identify their strengths, passions, and core values, guiding them towards a clearer sense of purpose and direction in life. With a nurturing and non-judgmental approach, I empowers my clients to break free from limiting beliefs, overcome obstacles, and develop practical strategies to achieve their goals.
Areas of Expertise:
I specialise in personal development, goal setting, stress management, confidence building, and work-life balance. I have successfully assisted clients in enhancing relationships, fostering resilience during challenging times and overcoming obstacles in order to move forward in their lives in a more positive way.
“My mindfulness course with Mairi was wonderful, I would highly recommend it to anybody interested in learning more about mindfulness and how it can positively impact your life. Mairi is a fun, relaxed and compassionate teacher, and I have come away from the course feeling much more positive and well equipped with useful strategies for approaching life’s challenges.” – Zoe
“I completed my mindfulness course with Mairi earlier this year (via Zoom) and would absolutely recommend her course to anyone who is looking to learn more about mindfulness and how to put it into practice. I found the techniques and practices really useful in helping to manage day to day anxiety and as a mum of two little ones, it was also a great way to do something just for me. Mairi is a fantastic teacher and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the sessions. Thanks again Mairi” – Claire
“Mairi really helped me get to the bottom of why I was choosing bad habits with regard to food. The coaching classes really opened my eyes to truly see how I am dealing with all the different aspects my life. Mairi encouraged me use a journal which really helped and having tasks to complete every week meant I was accountable for my actions which I really needed in order to make changes”. It was a really positive experience” – Vicky
