Toran Mindful Life Coaching
Working for 21 years as a physician psychotherapist treating patients with many forms of mental and emotional illness, I realized that far more people suffer from a lack of knowing themselves and their own, true goals in life than suffer from illness. So many of us work in demanding, unfulfilling jobs, unable to find work-life balance. We take degrees that we have been told are appropriate for us, but which we hate. We work for the weekend, if we are permitted to have that time off. We work for an uncertain future, when the only time we have to live is now. And most of the time, we work at something we don’t even like, let alone love. We have absorbed others’ values. Our parents, our friends, society all have an opinion on what we should be doing, and we fall into these values, often ignoring our own inner voice, our calling in life. I have made it my mission to coach clients to find their inner voice, to discover their own values so that together we can set realistic, attainable goals for transition to a more authentic, fulfilling life. I have taken this pathway myself, growing from a newly graduated physician who believed everything I had been taught, to a seasoned professional with a deeper understanding of the workings of the human condition. My journey led me to Mindfulness and meditation, and I take a Mindfulness based approach with my clients, as I did for the last 8 years working as a therapist. My business is Toran Mindful Life Coaching. A toran is a gateway. Life coaching is your gateway to meaningful, lasting change.
