“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

 

Overcoming chronic illnesses when she was younger through the act of mindfulness, Nadia has now become an expert in the field and is helping others to break through the barriers towards independent living. She believes mindfulness is a lifestyle that anyone can adapt to and see the benefits in their everyday routines

Who is Nadia?
I am half Qatari, half British, born and raised in Bahrain, continued my studies in Australia and now reside in Qatar

Tell us about your education.
I studied International Relations and Criminology at the University of Queensland

How did you come to embrace the idea of mindfulness in the first place?
I was diagnosed a few years ago with a few chronic illnesses and was told there was no cure.
Determined to get better after becoming mostly bedridden, I decided to go to one of the best medical facilities in the world that had a specialized department. Unlike the traditional “western medicine” approach, they focused on meditation and mindfulness. I began to see improvements in my health and decided to become certified in this to help other sufferers

What can mindfulness coaching cure? Can it cure chronic conditions?
A cure would suggest that after doing it for a while, the chronic condition would go and they would no longer need to practice mindfulness. Many chronic illnesses have no cure even with medication. Mindfulness can help manage a variety of chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression, psoriasis and the list goes on.

What benefits can meditation have on the brain and wellbeing?
There has been a lot of recent credible research that shows how practising meditation regularly can reduce mind wandering and quiet down the mind. This, in turn, can help tremendously with regulating emotions by changing our perceptions and feelings, which helps reduce stress. There is a link between body and mind, and so if that can be worked on, then the symptoms of chronic illnesses should reduce

How did you become a certified mindfulness master practitioner?
I had to put in a lot of hours studying the required material and training through a school that specializes in mindfulness

What does the process involve? Can you walk us through a typical session?
Each session is tailored individually towards the client since every person’s case is unique. The first session, however, always involves the client talking to me about what they are going through in detail. After the first session, I start to tailor the following sessions based on what I have grasped. I may give the client a few activities to do at home and follow up in the next session to see the progress and modify it if needed and also do activities with the client during the session so that they can carry on doing it at home. Mindful meditation is one aspect, but mindfulness is a lifestyle that can involve eating, speaking, cleaning and listening mindfully too.

Can children and adolescents benefit from mindfulness practice?
Absolutely! Many schools worldwide are now incorporating mindfulness meditation at schools because of the amazing benefits it has

Can you please describe your daily routine for us?
My morning starts with me lighting incense and listening to “OM” chants while I clean. I then continue to meditate and choose the form of meditation based on what I would like to achieve that day. I then proceed to write three things I am grateful for mindfully. I continue to work with clients and on other projects right after getting a workout in. In the evening, I will either practice yoga and/or meditate again

That sounds lovely. Do you have any weekend routines that help you relax after a busy week?
I like to try out new restaurants, paint or do something in nature

What are some of your hobbies?
My hobbies involve spending time in nature, being physically active, reading and painting

Do you have a favourite quote that inspires you?
There are too many, but one of them that comes to mind is “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

What was the best advice ever given to you?
My degree is my weapon

Do you have any reading suggestions for our readers?
1) The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
2)The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
3) The Enlightened Gardener by Sydney Banks.

Your message for us at CiiN.
Mindfulness and meditation have been practiced for hundreds of years, and recent credited research and brain scans have shown the impact it can have on mental and physical health. Doctors, scientist, researchers, teachers, monks and many others now push for the industries to incorporate this into their systems. The results we can see from the research are too profound to be ignored. The key is to practice it consistently to see the consequences unravel.
Thank you, CiiN for providing this platform for me to build awareness in this area. If I can help just one person, then I believe I have done my job, because that will create a domino effect of others seeing that there is hope. My Instagram is nadia_qatar for anyone who has further questions or comments or would like to book a session.
