Welcome, I'm Rosemary Lowe, the Founder and Director of MindFlame Consulting.
I established MindFlame in order to help individuals and organisations to discover and evolve their potential, become more satisfied and fulfilled in life and work and to help them to find more purpose and meaning in all that they do.
MindFlame is the culmination of over thirty years of my personal and professional growth and experience, where I've studied with and been mentored by world-class experts and also gained wisdom and insight through overcoming numerous challenges in my own life and by engaging in many years of personal enquiry.
I've explored and quested to find out how to create health, peace and happiness from within and to learn how to live my best, inspired life and help others achieve this too.
★ What lights me up (my inner flame) is helping people to gain clarity about what they want, what's working well and what needs to improve. I blend my diverse background, knowledge and experience to enable people to develop insight and increase their self-awareness. They then feel empowered to adopt new perspectives and behaviours which can create lasting and transformative change. I also help people to build greater courage, capability and resilience in their life.
★ I’m naturally curious, very open-minded and enjoy exploring new perspectives and solutions and thinking ‘outside of the box’. I’m practical, focused and enjoy leading and developing growth in others and seeing the potential in individuals, relationships and teams. I combine intuition and creativity with logical reasoning, strategic vision and strong business acumen.
★ My big mission is to help people to be the best, truest version of themselves - helping them to be REAL and live their lives as courageously and authentically as possible. I'm also keen to put the focus back on to the 'being' part of being human!
★ I enjoy helping Management, Teams and Businesses to gain a strong sense of their value and purpose, get clarity about the why behind what they do and help to facilitate growth and change in a way that feels expansive, enlivening and positive for all involved.
★ My greatest satisfaction comes from witnessing people make transformative shifts, helping them to feel better about themselves and inspiring action.
★ One of the key themes in my work is helping people to overcome self-judgement and learn to silence their negative internal dialogue and befriend their inner critic. We work to transform your inner relationship to one where there is a stronger sense of self-worth, self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-compassion and even self-celebration - which are all positive and healthy forms of selfies!
★ In my wellbeing coaching, I teach people how to feel fulfilled from within so that this provides a healthy and strong foundation for living. This means that we have that solid 'come from' to return to, no matter what is occurring in the external circumstances of our lives that we may not or may not have control over.

► I have over 20 years experience of helping thousands of clients to develop their potential, gain satisfaction and success within their work and life and supporting individuals and groups through career, personal and professional transitions. I work with clients in the UK and internationally via Zoom or Skype, or by phone and in-person coaching, consulting and training.

My work focuses on both the conscious and subconscious mind to enable clients to increase their self-awareness and explore what has shaped their patterns of thinking, emotional responses and default actions and behaviours. This enhanced insight and awareness helps clients to gain clarity about why they've experienced problems, issues and challenges, or felt stuck and then clear up any 'faulty thinking' or unhelpful beliefs so that they will be able to move forwards and create more empowering and positive outcomes in their professional and personal lives.

* BIG DISCLAIMER! - I think that tools and techniques and profiling can be a great guide to cultivating self-awareness and that's why I use them. But please note I only use these as a 'guide' to help you find your talents and what makes you unique and helps you to shine - there is also a huge part of me that really hates labels and sticking myself or other people in a narrow and limiting 'box' - so I may also encourage you to free yourself from what you may 'think' yourself to be - to let go of labels, your personality and your carefully crafted identity so you can truly unleash your Genius, discover your true potential and start really living!
LET'S WORK TOGETHER
