Helen is one of our Lifestyle Consultants specialising in personal and self-development, spiritual direction, individual, couples and marriage consultations, workshops, public speaking and teaching and training people from all walks of life. Helen was awarded Emirates Woman, Woman of the Year for her visionary work in the field of personal development in 2014 and in 2017 was honoured as one of the 50 Most Inspirational Women of the UAE by Stylist Arabia as well as one of Arabian Business’s 100 Most Influential People in Dubai.
Originally from New Zealand, I love my life in Dubai and feel very settled and at home here after all these years. Mindful ME is a joyful business to be a part of and it delights me and my amazing team to be sharing these wonderful ideas, projects, workshops and sessions with you all.
After years of working and learning through experience about our community in Dubai, I made time to reflect on how best I could serve and make a positive impact with bringing meaning in my work. Mindful ME has arisen out of this and offers wonderful opportunities for focussing on Mindfulness as the key to enabling growth, connection and healing.
While I continue to work with clients, both as individuals and couples, to support their mindful growth, I will be working far more extensively with group work, along with our Mindful ME team, teaching Mindfulness and Meditation Practice as well as Authentic Living and Mindful Living, Conscious Relationships, and supporting our growing Mindfulness Community. Our group work will continue to be supported by individual sessions by an experienced team who consult with the same mindful compassion that has for so long been the way I work with clients.
I have had a lifetime of practical experience in this field of self-development, focusing mostly on our core search for meaning and authentic conscious growth, while working as a counsellor for individuals, couples, marriage and grief. I have worked consistently in the field of personal and spiritual development since I was young, participated in and taught many groups involved in the personal search for mindful authenticity, meaning and conscious connection. It is the meaning that this has brought to my life that provides the motivation to bring meaning to the lives of others.
Mindfulness as a way of living and my meditation practice are core teachings for me and enable me to be grounded and connected in my daily life. Running workshops, facilitating learning experiences, and offering spiritual direction brings me great joy, teaching and training people from all walks of life, cultures, ages, and countries.
Living for some years in a meditation and retreat centre, where I worked as a counsellor and a teacher of both Hatha Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness, has had a marked impact on my way of being and further fuelled my desire for authentic living and the opportunity to share this with others.
People often ask me why I am still here living in Dubai and continue to energetically run our business past retirement age! The reason is this; my work is my reason for living. I love what I do, the opportunities of working with a huge variety of cultures, and the great joy that comes from seeing people connect and come home to themselves.
I hope that I will get to meet and work with you at one of our workshops or retreats.
