You've landed in a safe place.

I'd like Conscious Directions to be like a big exhale - a sense of coming home, and meeting that part of you that wants inner peace.
Sometimes it just takes a gentle reminder that we are so much more than the drama, conflicts and struggles in life; then we find that, at our core, we are loving, compassionate beings.
Bringing a deeper level of conscious awareness to your communication skills supports and transforms so many areas of your life.
I would like to share how you can find the peace and ease in communication that you are looking for.

Alistair McKinnon of Conscious Directions

My husband and I have worked with Alistair to improve the way we deal with disagreements. We have benefited tremendously from our coaching sessions:- we understand better how each other feels and what are our individual needs- we have grown in empathy for each other and discovered what we were each trying to give to our relationship. This allowed us to grow in trust and acceptance of each other.- we have grown greatly in our ability to discuss with each other in times of disagreement without escalating into an argument. We are regularly witnessing how we can now deal in a beautiful, non violent and efficient way with any issue or important subject we may have to deal with. We feel we are together on this journey to strengthen our couple, working in sync as a team. In addition, we felt heard deeply without judgement by Alistair and his practical, down to earth approach is refreshing. Finally, we found it really good to face a coach that is very flexible as we were able to choose if we wanted to work together or separately when needed. This made us feel held in our work of growing as a strong couple.
