ABOUT YOUR COACH
Born in the UK, Marion moved to Switzerland 35 years ago where she worked for over 12 years as a language lecturer at the local university of applied sciences. Imparting knowledge has therefore been a vital part of her career path. Marion is also fluent in German and can conduct the courses in either English or German. Just let her know what you prefer.
Marion studied Buddhist philosophy intensively for 12 years but belongs to no specific religion at all. The tools taught in Buddhist philosophy for a happy life however, can be very useful in avoiding suffering, promoting happiness and for acquiring inner peace.
HARMONY OF MIND AND BODY
Having trained in the UK, our coach began her working life as a qualified physical education teacher so is well aware of how intrinsically linked the well being of mind and body are. Being interested in medicine, she recently completed her studies to obtain a Swiss Diploma in medicine (with distinction) where she studied Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology with reference to mammals.
Together with a superb team, she set up an Animal Rescue Centre in Greece from scratch in 2005 with all the bureaucratic hurdles a start up abroad brings with it.The charity, of which she is president, GASAH, operates intensively to relieve the suffering of animals.
Unexpectedly, Marion lost her husband to cancer quite early so she can identify with losing a loved one and has compassion with the challenging, life reconstruction issues, loss of a loved one require. She believes and has successfully proved, mainly from profound personal experience, which mental "tools" are useful when adapting to change.
Marion is extremely intuitive and her courses are oozing with enthusiasm which is extremely contagious and inspiring.This ability, together with other such skills acquired over many years of study and experience, serve as a major factor in helping people to develop their full potential and gain strength and power.
