During the mentoring process we will meet in the spirit of equals, entering into what I call “Heart-felt communion”.
Some dictionary definitions of communion:
- association; fellowship
- interchange or sharing of thoughts or emotions; intimate communication
- the act of sharing; of holding in common; participation
Living from the Power of Awareness is the master key to stress reduction.
It’s a way of life that spontaneously transforms your mind to bring about harmony and well-being.
The qualities of a harmonious mind include compassion (including self-compassion), appreciation, kindness, acceptance and gratitude.
Simply put, The Power of Awareness offers what everyone wants – a peacefully happy and abundantly successful life.
Oprah Winfrey in conversation with mindfulness teacher, Thich Nhat Hahn, about the power of Compassionate Listening
The power of a compassionate listening ear
Listening deeply is a core part of the mentoring process, which may at first appear to be a small, insignificant, or perhaps merely conceptual distinction from a regular conversation.
But the shift that listening deeply and compassionately makes in the experience to the person being listened to is very real. This is testified to daily by the thousands of lives that have been saved simply through the listening ear of a trained Samaritan counsellor.
The mentoring process also uses mindful, reflective questions that help my clients gain greater clarity into their lives. Then, with the benefit of clarity, they can find solutions to whatever challenges they have been facing.
What about my friends, family, and colleagues – can’t I just talk to them?
Of course. But in our hectic world where just about everyone already has more to do than time to do it in, our friends and colleagues can only give so much. And our relationships can suffer if we burden them with too many of our problems.
Also, the simple fact is that most people simply do not know how to listen deeply to another person.
And yet when we feel truly heard, much stress drops away and our future direction becomes clear …
Compassionate listening can bring clarity and insight
“Leo listened carefully to me and showed his deep understanding of what it was I wanted to express. He conveyed great empathy and gave me much support. I really appreciate his contribution to my work.”
Carrie Rose, Counsellor, writer, and workshop facilitator
Each mentoring session unfolds spontaneously according to the unique needs of each individual. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” process in other words.
This means each of my clients has a bespoke experience of working with me, enabling powerful personal shifts of perception to emerge.

“I’ve been associated with Leo for a period of approximately five years in my capacity of consultant and trainer with the Brunel Training Group. During courses of training for the UK Ministry of Defence that we’ve shared together his workshop skills have been received with great appreciation.
“Personally it is always a pleasure to work with Leo, who is totally professional in all aspects of his course delivery. His interpersonal skills are particularly well honed, which I am sure stems from his background as a healer and therapist, as it always appears that he is not phased by any unusual request or question.
“Leo’s depth of knowledge on a wide range of subjects is a particular strength which he uses to great advantage in leading courses, coaching delegates, and sharing in conversation with course delegates during and after formal sessions.
“It is therefore a great pleasure and an honour to recommend this extremely versatile trainer and mentor who gives 100% to every task he undertakes.”
John Seward, Brunel Training Group
