Jeffrey Mince - ICF certified ACC Wellness Psychology counselor. Extensive training in evidence-based awareness & meditation practices, Buddhist Psychology teacher & former Buddhist Monk
I'm an ICF ACC-certified Wellness counselor, a meditation and Buddhist psychology teacher, as well as a former Buddhist Monk. With over three decades of dedicated meditation experience, I bring diverse and interconnected experiential knowledge to my sessions, classes, and programs. Specializing in Wellness Psychology, and holding extensive training in grief, trauma, loss, and end-of-life counseling, I integrate this expertise with my background in creative psychology as a seasoned professional musician.
My work has been rooted in the dedicated study and training in the practical science of happiness, creativity, and a meaningful life. Having accumulated more than 1000 hours of silent meditation on retreat, I've not only taught 100's of Buddhist Psychology seminars and classes but also guided many meditation sessions and retreats
As a professional musician, I've performed on stages and in studios worldwide, coupled with mentoring experiences that contribute another layer to my skill set. Punk Monk Works embodies my endeavor to combine my life experiences and training into a practical path that promotes positive change in the world through individual and group counseling, coaching, workshops, classes, and retreats. Through this platform, my goal is to assist clients in cultivating insight, clarity, meaning, courage, and self-acceptance, leveraging my background in meditation, psychology, wellness, and creativity.
What I Do:
I provide coaching and counseling using the evidence-based principles of emotional intelligence & wellness psychology to develop things like self-awareness, self-esteem, emotional regulation, empathy, & resilience. Each session is customized to the client's individual needs & goals, with practical & personalized support. Some common focuses of my sessions include: *Developing emotional awareness & intelligence. *Building a practical meditation & mindfulness practice. *Integrating spiritual awareness into a conscious life. *Addressing grief & loss in their many forms. *Building resilience & coping skills. *Managing stress & anxiety. *Building stronger parent-child relationships & improving family dynamics. *Navigating transitions such as divorce, separation, or a blended family. *MBSR - Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. *Improving academic performance & study skills. *Developing self-confidence & self-esteem. *Coping with peer pressure & social media challenges. *Addressing issues related to school & academic pressure. *Developing effective problem-solving & decision-making skills.
In addition to one-to-one coaching sessions, I offer positive psychology, mindfulness, meditation, and creativity workshops, retreats, and master classes.
Why It Works:
My Punk Monk Counscious Life program offers an evidence-based approach that combines the principles of positive psychology with mindfulness & wellness practices. By utilizing this integrated approach, I specialize in helping adults, families, and adolescents identify and develop their strengths, improve emotional regulation, and build resilience. My non-secular coaching sessions are tailored to each individual's unique needs and goals, providing practical and personalized support. Through the cultivation of mindfulness and emotional intelligence, clients can learn to better manage stress and anxiety, enhance their focus and decision-making abilities, and effectively navigate challenges and setbacks.
I’ve always set goals, but have a habit of overanalyzing the path forward. I've found that Jeff’s coaching has made me more accountable to my goals by helping me set short and long-term milestones. With his help, I’m better at reframing problems so I can see a path forward. Paul J - Texas

Jeffrey brought a sense of calmness and concern to all our sessions. Working with Jeffrey has helped me order my often-chaotic thoughts and identify what is truly important to me. His coaching style is professional and utterly human. His questions and insights often stopped me in my in tracks! I was challenged by our sessions but I also feel energized and empowered to go after what I want in my business and professional life. I highly recommend investing in yourself by coaching with Jeffrey. Elaine R - Ireland
Jeffrey has given me great one to one support - helping me to think through some difficult life situations recently.

Jeff helps me get clear about long-term goals, identify the steps large and small to get me there, and what resources I have to leverage myself toward a more fulfilling life

Jeffrey is a focused listener. He waited for me to clarify what I wanted from the session and worked with me to meet my goal. Jeffrey is affirming and warm while also offering challenges so that I could see more clearly- which helped open up new possibilities for me.

I started listening to Jeff’s micro-meditations (TikTok) a couple of weeks ago, and they have consistently spoken to me every single day. I have never found anything even remotely similar to these, all packaged in a 2-minute micro-meditation. My favorite thus far is “What if Everything Is Working Out” inspired by a T-shirt he once saw. He quotes Ralph Waldo Emerson “Life is a journey, not a destination”. This particular meditation is emblematic of Jeff’s style of communication. He is at once calming, introspective and wise with a healthy dose of humility. I feel like I have known him for decades.
