I am, first and foremost, a coach. I am also a trained therapist who is passionate about people and helping to unlock their inner potential.
As a deeply curious person I want to walk alongside people that are prepared to accept change, in order to rapidly achieve results.
what i bring to the table
As a highly qualified and experienced coach and therapist for over three decades, it has been my privilege to inspire people towards clearing their limitations and unlocking their possibilities.
Trained in Coaching (Life and Business Coaching), Time Line Therapy® (TLT Master) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP Master & Trainer of NLP), I enable people to heal themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically through positive psychology, neuroscience, and accelerated learnings.
Having been a member of numerous therapy boards of standards ABNLP, COMENSA, IMI, ABH and as a member of the Association for NLP (ANLP), I strongly believe that adherence to ethical and legal standards is vital to ensuring a safe environment for clients to grow, develop and heal.
Making a difference in my community has been core to my life, expressed through seasoned experience as a counsellor at LifeLine for over 20 years, chairperson of ChildLine, and currently an active listening volunteer at Samaritans. I grew an extra heart when my daughter was born, and love our family time walking with my wife, dog (and yes cat), as well as reading, swimming, and cycling.
I will inspire you to grow, think more clearly and transform to living the life you choose, desire and deserve. I would be delighted to support you through your coaching journey.
Do you want to grow, develop, and heal in a holistic way, incorporating a balanced life that is sustainable? That’s what I do.
By creating a gentle, safe, empowering environment I utilise Time Line Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Applied Neuroscience to coach you in moving away from pain and challenges, and to focus on aspects of life that are fulfilling and meaningful.
These techniques empower you to take back the emotional reins of your life in a sustainable manner. Clearing your negative emotions and limiting beliefs is half the battle.
I also use NLP coaching, inspiring you to build your new life strategies into powerful habits designed to build resilience. These support you to develop intrinsic motivation as well as living a fuller, happier, and more enriched life.
How I Can Help
I will enable you to build a better relationship with your unconscious mind so you can release negative emotions that are often suppressed. These negative emotions prevent you from reaching the peak of your own development.
By marrying coaching with therapy, I seek to help you overcome any pain from the past, possibly caused by:
- Low self-esteem & confidence
- Depression or sadness
- Stress & anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Obsessive disorders
… and equip you with the tools to move forward towards your business goals in an effective and efficient way.
If you simply want to move forward, that’s great too. Therapy is a useful tool, but isn’t an essential part of my coaching strategy.
“Double the results and more energy, thank you for our transformational coaching partnership. I’ve been able to deliver large projects and still a balanced healthy life, with fun and creativity. Thank you for your on-point, pragmatic support, especially when the going gets tough. Your ability to draw on so many disciplines from neuroscience, complimented by your business and project management experience has been invaluable to me, in all spheres of my life.”
