You work in a success-demanding role. You are successful, at least to a degree, however it’s not easy. It’s stressful. It’s heavy. It drains your wellness. You want to do well, maybe even better, but you also want to be happier doing it.

Dear visitor,

I am not interested in success without wellness. How we cultivate success with wellness is what I want to explore with you.

That means working from a more innately peaceful grounding. From such peaceful grounding, we are wiser, more resourceful, more creative, with better thinking and greater clarity. We are also happier.

What I do

  • One-to-one coaching and therapeutic conversations
  • Group coaching meetings to cultivate and deepen your peaceful grounding, so you can be more peacefully effective
  • Weekend learning events in transformative communication skills and platform skills (public speaking presentation skills)

My work is therapeutic, restorative and constructive—a powerful journey of learning, deep self-discovery and transformational change—and I invite you to take that journey with me.

The peaceful influencers project

This is my group project in 2019 to support people like you developing the grounding and presence to not only function healthily in yourself, but also be a beacon of healthy creativity, positively influencing the world around you.

It will take shape as half-day meetings once per month to collectively deepen our grounding through sharing, group coaching and practices. Each meeting will be individually ticketed and you can come as you wish.

• • • • •

I believe the influencers of tomorrow will be those who bring such peaceful grounding and clarity with them that they cannot help but influence the world around them.

Such people are not just the calm within the storm, they calm the storm.

More about my coaching work

Coaching is a space in which we can slow down, explore deeply and act to spark the magic in each of us. Sometimes I think of it as the healing space, in which we release stress, reset and renew. Sometimes I think of it as the thriving space in which we build on that to become the peaceful influencers in our lives and works. It’s really the same space, the only difference is where we start.

As a coach, who do I work with?

I specialise in working with professional people.

As a trainer, who do I work with?

My training events are also aimed at professionals, but also at my coaching colleagues who want to expand their communication skills and personal resourcefulness.

Life is both the yin and the yang; a dance of the active and the passive; of being the guide and the guided; of being the mover and the moved.

Why work with me?

I am a professionally trained coach and coaching trainer-mentor with over 27 years’ experience working in large corporate environments. I have been a coach since 2006. My work draws on practical Psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and spiritual principles for happier, more successful living.

In addition to being trained in business coaching, I am a certified Pause Place Advanced Practitioner, certified Presence Intelligence Coach and an Advanced Master Practitioner and Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

What are my philosophies?

Despite my corporate background, I believe the magic of coaching reaches way beyond material goals and that presence and spiritual nourishment are key to any meaningful coaching journey.

I don‘t just want you to deal with some problems and goals. I want you to experience a ground of being that allows you to meet any problem or goal. This is why I put so much emphasis on ground of being in my work.

I also believe:

Our work is not about me changing you as if you are wrong. It’s not about me rescuing you as if you are a child. It’s not about me giving you my wisdom as if you lack your own. You have all the resources. Our work is about creating and sharing a deep thinking space to realise them.

I don’t believe in chasing success to become happy. I believe in making time for our success projects because we’re happy.

Start with happiness. Start with wellness. Succeed from there.

If your work is too important for you to take time out for self care, it’s too important for you not to!
