Meditation and Mindfulness Coaching

with Melbourne Meditation Centre Director Matt Young, or Counsellor and Social Worker, Deb Ling.
Having trouble meditating? Can’t focus? Get distracted? Too restless or sleepy? Not motivated? Can’t find the time? Discouraged?

These are common problems, and they have simple solutions. Meditation can be a delightful and rewarding practice, but it needs to be customised to your own temperament, personality and needs.

Private consultations allow you to explore and develop your capacity to meditate in a relaxed atmosphere, and one-on-one attention provides the time and space to find ways of meditating that work for you.

Consultations are ideal if you:

  • Struggle with meditation
  • Can’t switch off
  • Need help with anxiety
  • Need help getting to sleep
  • Need help with chronic pain

Private consultations are of one hour’s duration and are conducted at our home-office in McKinnon (near Bentleigh) or in Clifton Hill on Monday afternoons. The fee is $120/hr.

Consultations are also available online via Zoom.

To arrange a consultation please email matt@melbournemeditationcentre.com.au

Payment is required at the time of the session or beforehand. Please bring cash to your consultation or prepay via credit card.
