Jane Brendgen, Coach, trainer and mindfulness teacher
Jane is committed to supporting people to realize more of their innate potential.
She has been involved with organisational and personal development for the past 10 years and in her role as coach and trainer / facilitator has delivered workshops, team and 1-1 coaching primarily to organisations such as The Discovery Channel, News International, Channel 4, Channel 5, The Walt Disney Company, GroupM, and MediaCom. She has also worked with clients such as MSN Microsoft, AOL and the NHS.
Jane says "Mindfulness is integral to my life and work and I am passionate about bringing the benefits of it to individuals and into the workplace." She teaches mindfulness-based programmes (MBSR) and has developed a number of workshops all of which emphasize the application of mindfulness as an agent for change. Mindfulness plays a central role in her coaching approach. Enhanced by her practice of presence, “bringing my whole self to the engagement with the client and being fully in the moment with and for the client”, she finds that the coaching relationship becomes a powerful catalyst for change.
She is in her last year of an MA in Mindfulness-based approaches at the University of Wales, psychology department. Her thesis topic is focused on establishing a methodology modelled on the mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programme to fulfil the business need for mindfulness training in the workplace".
Jane has a committed mindfulness practice and is deeply appreciative of the benefits of this in her everyday life.
Jane is currently on the Kinder Mentorship programme and her intention is to working collaboratively with members of the financial fraternity to expand the reach of EVOKE®.
