Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which a person focuses on the present moment without letting conscious thought intrude. It can involve breathing techniques, guided imagery and other techniques that are intended to relax the body and mind to help reduce stress.
A mindfulness coach helps to guide and support a person when they are first learning this meditation technique and when they want to develop their abilities further. A good mindfulness coach is one that practices this technique regularly and is familiar with other meditation practices, such as yoga, that can help to induce a mindful state
Mindfulness is said to provide its benefits through control of a person’s consciousness and brain functioning. A mindfulness coach should have a solid background in both psychology and teaching to be effective and the person receiving the coaching should be comfortable with the approach that they take to the practice before engaging them.
