About us

The Open Mind Institute is the leading mental wellbeing, mindset & performance training & coaching institute in Australia. We empower people & workplaces around the world with our evidence-based coaching programs, experiential learning workshops, events & online courses.

We were founded in 2016 with our headquarters being in Brisbane, Australia where we hold live workshops, events & coaching sessions. We strive to enhance the lives of as many people as possible, increasing personal wellbeing, overall performance, and ensuring that everyone has access to inclusive, progressive and credible mental wellbeing, mindset and performance resources and tools.

We obtain the majority of our funding from companies who pay us to bring out the best in their staff and we give back to the community, by providing our services to educational institutions, non-for-profits and community groups around the world because our objective is simple: We want to empower as many people as possible, because for us, there is no greater reward!

We're leaders in the field of Mindset & Performance and Workplace Coaching. This is because we only use scientifically backed evidence-based tools, measure performance outcomes & results and  practicing what we teach.


We take pride in exceeding best practice and ethical standards established by the International Coaching Federation and have imbedded credibility, diversity, and inclusion in our DNA.

The Open Mind Institute out for lunch

Our team of expert coaches have worked across a variety of industries and hold qualifications in behavioural science, psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy, training and assessment, law, and international business.


Our clients invest in our coaching for themselves & their teams because we're invested in their success, upholding our values of Truth, Open Mindedness, Mastery, and Integrity throughout the coaching program experience and beyond.

"Having an 'Open Mind' means to have a willingness to actively listen and accept ideas

that are different from our own. The Open Mind Institute is where people come together to explore this, to grow & expand their knowledge of what is possible when our  minds are open, and our actions align with our values and authenticity."  


Paul Pitsaras, Founder.


  • Where do the coaching sessions take place?
    Your coaching sessions can be facilitated remotely via video in the comfort of your own home or face-to-face at our office on Queen Street in Brisbane's CBD.
  • How much do the coaching programs cost?​
    Our coaching programs vary in cost and are reasonably priced considering the life-changing value and results achieved. We recommend organising a free discovery call to find out the right program for you and the accompanying cost. We take all payment methods and offer payment plans.
  • What happens in my free coaching discovery call?
    Your discovery call takes place by video or telephone with one of our friendly team members and remains 100% confidential. We'll ask you some basic questions about the potential barriers you're experiencing, before guiding you through how the coaching programs work. You can ask as many questions as you like to make an informed decision about whether our coaching is right for you.
  • What if I want to exit my coaching program early?
    If you feel the coaching isn't working or isn't a good fit, you can exit your coaching program at any time. We're all about flexibility and positive outcomes, so we promise we’ll never lock you into any contract.
