THE STORY BEHIND THE COACH
Mindfulness helps you become more resilient and confident in how you relate to your everyday experiences.
I know this because my own mindfulness practice was slowly built, day by day, in a children's cancer ward.
In 2014 my youngest daughter was gifted with a bone marrow transplant after a relapse with Leukaemia at age 4. As a parent to have your child go through cancer is soul destroying. To have it happen twice is indescribable.
We began practicing meditation daily as a way to holistically support Ava during intense chemotherapy and radiation and to help lower our stress as a family. Implementing other small mindful actions each day that helped us to to feel that we had some certainty in a life that was so uncertain.
The most powerful transformation I experienced was that it bought my mind back to my body. Giving me a more adaptive response to the stress I was experiencing. In a situation where I had no control I finally learnt how to surrender, get out of my own way and just enjoy each moment for what it was.
We all face stressors daily. Our own expectations and thinking, relationships, managing work and family life.. now throw in a global pandemic. Our mind and body is under constant attack without us even realising it most of the time.
Yet how often do we consciously tend to our mind? Or even know how to soothe and regulate our own nervous system?
Knowing how to calm and self soothe while under chronic stress stopped me from burning out. I also believe it helped my daughter return to vibrant health and develop the growth mindset she has today. Becoming more mindful supporting the mental health and wellbeing of my entire family.
Mindfulness - a life changing practice - so utterly simple and accessible. Not "woo woo" or crazy. Just a way of being that cuts through the chaos of the world and brings us back to center. Which is exactly why I now integrate mindfulness into all of my executive coaching and team programs.
Each moment you get to decide the life you want.
But that only happens if you do the work to get off autopilot.
Mindfulness stops you from being controlled by your thoughts and emotions in even the most turbulent storms of life
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
ALI ZABEL, LIFESTYLE COACH
Well I knew that affirmations and manifesting should be a big part of my morning routine so like we all do these days I looked on Instagram and found Kirsty O’Brien. I got on a call with her and it was simply wonderful.
She helped me understand my mindset blocks and to overcome limiting thoughts; as well as helped me realize that certain actions such as hitting my snooze button so many times are self sabotage.
I began working with Kirsty about 5 years ago now and I can wholeheartedly say it is one of the best decisions I have ever made! This wonderful, kind hearted, calm and extremely knowledgeable lady has helped me to navigate through some deeply tough times in my life. Times that I honestly feel I wouldn’t have gotten through as strongly or as well without her guidance. I have never felt anything but 100% comfortable with Kirsty and feel so grateful to have found her. I truly couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
Kirsty ran an incredible stress management training with my team through the covid pandemic 2021. She shared simple, easy and fast techniques that take 1 minute. Honestly every workplace needs this. We had all families welcome and had a fantastic result! Do yourself a favour and book in.
