The Mindful Place
Meet The Owner:
Meet Antonella and Peter Carlini, of The Mindful Place, Located in Ashfield, NSW.
Tell Us A Little Something About Yourself
Interestingly we both grew up in Sydney two streets away from each other, only to meet in 2012 in the middle of the city where our beautiful relationship began! After meeting we realised very quickly that we were both incredibly interested and passionate about spirituality and wellness, finding ourselves always drawn to anything mind, body and spirit.
Prior to meeting we both had very different lives in the corporate sector and the fashion industry, however our interests always found us leaning towards alternative modalities and a desire to one day help people. After getting married in 2015 we both found ourselves increasingly wanting to study eastern philosophy and spirituality; 5 years on and we are so excited to be at the start of our journey in our business The Mindful Place.
What Inspired You To Start Your Own Business?
Starting our own business has always been the goal for us, being very unique in our approach to spirituality and wellness, what better way to help people than to open our own mindful place.
What Does Your Business Offer, and What Makes It Unique?
We care about each and every client we work with and understand how personal and unique everyone's journey is. That is why The Mindful Place is a beautiful infusion of western methodologies and eastern philosophy. We offer caring guidance by combining a number of modalities and tools from Holistic Counselling, Kinesiology, Meditation and Astrology in this way we have the mind, body and spirit covered.
What Does Your Journey Look Like?
We are still at the beginning of our journey, and loving every minute of it! We’ve spent the better part of the last 5 years studying a variety of modalities which we combine and use to holistically guide our clients. We work from a private residence in the inner west of Sydney and are currently building our clientele which is all very exciting!
Did You Always Think You'd Be Doing This?
If we’d been asked this question 10 years ago the answer would be probably not, mainly because we weren't fully aware of the wonderful variety of ways we could essentially help people who were just like us.
After leaving high school Peter went on to study a bachelor of Electrical Engineering and finding work in the government sector and Antonella went on to study fashion and complete a business degree followed by working in the fashion industry.
We both realised our paths kept being drawn to spirituality and wellness, often being guided towards the healing modalities and the fulfilling sensation of connecting with likeminded people who were on similar journeys, in this way we found our calling.
What Are The Most Rewarding And Challenging Parts Of Your Job And Owning Your Own Business?
Creating a safe and nurturing experience for our clients is pretty much everything, this is so important and a major driving force between the two of us. When our clients are left feeling heard, understood and positive it’s a job well done and super motivating.
Being our own boss has its pros and cons, it’s up to us to be motivated, consistent and driven which at times can be challenging, as life happens, which makes it all about being patient and supportive of each other as things come up.
Whats Your End Goal? The Moment You'll Know You've Achieved What You Want To?
We are currently pursuing further study in Clinical Hypnotic Sciences alongside running our business, we are always looking for ways to further our education to help people with the latest knowledge and research and we are looking forward to offering Hypnotherapy in the new year. The end goal is to have a successful and thriving clinic helping our community and making a difference in the lives of those we meet!
