Meet Marion Pawson

  Personal  Standpoint  
  Practical understanding of the place of human instinctual reactions is the trademark of my effectiveness in coaching people from stress and bullying to success and satisfaction.

Earlier in my life I championed the power of reason and conscious intention, an approach I would now describe as developing the functions of the ‘left brain’.

Some time later I discovered the surge in effectiveness that comes when one works creatively, recognizing Life’s ‘Ah ha!’ moments, and welcoming the contribution of the ‘right brain’.

Now here we are in the second decade of the 21st century, caught up in the explosion of information technologies and the high demands of the urban life style. I am excited to have gathered together methods from across the broad spectrum of mind and body disciplines that effectively address the yearning to really make something of one’s life in these demanding times.

  Professional Philopsopy  
  Since the early 1980’s, Kinesiology has provided the structure for my experience and my work. I undertook professional training from 1991 until 2002 in three major branches of Kinesiology. These years trained me to sift the vast array of potential factors and identify the significant matters that apply to this person right now. Harnessing the constant interplay of mind and body became a graceful, and achievable, art.

To keep me at the forefront of my field I attend national and international courses annually, and maintain a current First Aid Certificate.                 

Most recently, Wendy Bennett’s further developments in Neuro Linguistic Kinesiology, and the work of Dr Wayne Topping have further polished my professional skills, and inspired my professional enthusiasm yet again.
