Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and engaged in the current moment, aware of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment. It helps reduce stress and prevent burnout by promoting a sense of calm, improving focus, and fostering a non-reactive approach to challenges. By cultivating mindfulness, you can better manage your reactions to stressors, enhance your emotional resilience, and maintain a balanced state of mind, even in demanding situations.
My Mindfulness for Strivers (MFS) framework is unique in that it combines Eastern and Western philosophies and psychological theories tailored to the needs of high-achievers. It addresses the specific challenges ambitious individuals face, such as the pressure to constantly innovate and the stress of rapid technological change, which I term “Innovation Anxiety”. The MFS framework promotes a balanced approach to ambition, fostering work-life harmony and preventing burnout.
I have a rich history of corporate leadership, having served as a CEO. My transition to becoming a stress and burnout coach was fueled by my personal experiences with stress and burnout and my journey towards mindfulness and personal growth.

My group programs are designed to foster a culture of mindfulness within teams and organisations.

The mental wellness self-assessment quizzes are designed to help you identify your current stress levels and potential risk of burnout. The results provide a snapshot of your mental wellness at a particular point in time. High scores may indicate high stress levels or risk of burnout, while lower scores suggest a healthier balance. However, these quizzes are not diagnostic tools. They are meant to raise awareness and prompt further exploration of your mental wellness.
If the quizzes indicate high stress levels or burnout risk, it’s essential to take steps to address these issues. This might involve seeking support from a mental health professional, considering individualised coaching to develop personalised strategies for managing stress and preventing burnout, or participating in workshops or group programs that focus on mindfulness and work-life harmony. Remember, it’s critical to prioritise your mental wellness and seek help when needed.
