When you can get your thoughts in order, you can take action.
The MindMeld Coaching philosophy is to get you moving from being the Best Supporting Actor to being the Star of your own Life. This means helping you achieve the goals you want, and leave past those bad habits, upsetness, and limiting decisions that may be holding you back.
The coaching and training provided at MindMeld Coaching is focused on helping you make changes more easily and quickly, than if you tried going it alone.
MindMeld Coaching’s action plan in upholding Te Tiriti obligations is to work in partnership with Māori:
to maximise their rangatiratanga over resources and their goals
in the co design services to enable Māori to achieve their aspirations in terms of coaching, training and career aspirations
strive to achieve equity of outcomes to address disparities inconsistent with the articles of the Te Tiriti
to incorporate Tikanga and Te Reo into our practice.
to incorporate Te Whare Tapa Wha into our coaching and workshop practice
to evaluate our services on the four tikanga based principles of whakapapa (purpose), tika (research design), manaakitanga (cultural and social responsibility), and mana (justice and equity).
MindMeldCoaching recognises the richness and complexity of being part of an inclusive community. Our action plan is to ensure our communication & practice is neurodiversity; gender diversity and physical ableness friendly, by:
focusing on individual client’s goals, preferences & working styles
creating a safe space and sense of belonging
being inclusive and kind and not making assumptions
seeking client feedback to improve our services.
Te ara kura o Tāne.
Glittering pathway of the setting sun.
(A potential leader sets out on a pathway to success. People lead from wherever they stand.)
Tuia te rangi e tū iho nei
Tuia te papa e takato nei.
(As sky joins to earth, so people join together. People depend on one another.)
MindMeld Coaching’s two mantras
1. Think Right Act Right
Our minds are like a garden – helpful thoughts are like flowers, and unhelpful thoughts are like weeds which can run rampant if we keep our thought processes unchecked. In order to have our lives blossom and grow we have to weed the garden regularly. When you think thoughts that are helpful to you, then you will act accordingly.
2. We GROW our Clients, we don’t harvest them
The GROW model is a great coaching tool for working with individual clients and groups. GROW stands for each of the four coaching phases of identifying your Goal, exploring your current Reality, brainstorming Options, and creating an action plan for your Way Forward. In this way, clients get to the end of a coaching session knowing how to create positive and profound changes, and so they ‘flower’ after just one session. While we do enjoy long lasting relationship with clients, we help them make changes and become independent to get on with their lives.
Clients & Testimonials
Loved by loads of happy customers
Brenda’s approach is very unique. She looks at the whole person and understands how to personalise each coaching session for each client. She has a technique for working out what learning style they are most receptive to and then runs the session like that and gets great results. I think Brenda is amazing and have recommended her to so many people.
