It took well over 30 years for me to realise that we shape our life experience through our thoughts and beliefs.
Mindset does indeed matter most.
"It's not what happens to you that affects your experience of life, it's what you think about what
happens to you that shapes your life experience" - source unknown
I think many people are unaware of how much our mental and cognitive processes and patterning can influence our
emotional state, our choices and our behaviours. Bloom was created to help share simple yet life-changing mindset
strategies to help people revamp their thinking and subsequently improve their experience of life.
Hi, I'm Mel Kearsey, owner of Bloom Development Solutions. This is the bit where I provide you with my brag bio.
So here goes...
I have a passion for helping people to manage their mindset. I facilitate growth and change for others by
providing metacognition strategies (metacognition is just a fancy word that means thinking about how you
think) and techniques to enable people to:
Develop an awareness and understanding of their own thought processes
Identify when their thinking is resourceful vs. un-resourceful
Understand how their conscious and un-conscious beliefs influence their choices and overall life experience
Adopt empowering patterns of thought and a "growth mindset"
Identify and shift limiting beliefs, un-resourceful patterns of thought and/or resulting behaviours
Access more resourceful mental states to make better decisions and respond more effectively
Get more control over the way they think, feel, react and how they engage with the world around them
Feel more confident, capable and inspired
Relate better to others by understanding the nature of perceptual experience - everyone has their own internal maps, unique filters and perspectives
Think and communicate with deliberate intent and achieve more positive outcomes
Elicit peak performance from themselves and others by developing empowering internal and external narratives
I offer mindset strategies using principles derived from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Growth Mindset philosophy. As a result I provide training and coaching solutions that help individuals and businesses flourish.
I hold a Bachelor of Business Management (HR), I am a Certified Professional Coach, a Certified Workplace Trainer & Assessor, an NLP Practitioner, have trained in "Inner Work'" coaching, and am a Certified Practitioner of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have always had a keen interest in exploring the nature of perceptual experience and have spent years studying the fields of emotional intelligence, organisational culture & behaviour, optimal human performance and exploring behavioural modelling. I strive every day to learn and grow, to increase my awareness and regularly train and expand my mind.
I'm a mother to Lilly and Joshua, two incredible beings who remind me every day to be mindful, grateful and playful. I live on the beautiful Victorian Surf Coast with my husband Nick.
