I believe strongly in the power of thinking mindfully and the in-built ability of individuals to achieve. I employ many techniques to enable clients achieve their goals, reduce their levels of stress and overcome their anxieties and fears. I guide them in thinking through and making great decisions for themselves.
My approach is to work collaboratively with you to identify what your challenges are, create real measurable and achievable goals to overcome them, create a path to get you there and coach you on the journey to success.
I focus on working with you to give you the coping skills you need to successfully navigate and take control of the inevitable challenges you will face, not just today but for whatever you might face in the future.
I am a great believer in using evidence-based techniques that have a strong scientific basis for their success so that my clients have a broad range of proven skills at their disposal to tackle every situation they might encounter.
I recognised throughout my career that every person is unique and, as such, everyone deserves to have available the skills that work for them in their own unique situation.
Over the past fourteen years I have worked with many individuals, from many different backgrounds, helping them create the right way forward for themselves.
Although I now live in Southern Spain on the Costa del Sol many of my clients are based in the UK. I originally studied Life Sciences at University and was then professionally trained in Industrial Relations & Personnel at Shell and Sales & Marketing at IBM before spending over 25 years successfully running and transforming businesses. In that time I have operated as a Chairman, CEO, Coach and Mentor, helping individuals and teams achieve exceptional results often in stressful circumstances. I have worked in many environments and encountered many of life's challenges. I understand what it is like to succeed and to fail; I have experienced wonderful highs and almighty lows.
In 2008 I set up my own practice in the UK to support individuals on their life journey and then continued my practice from Spain in 2022. I am an Executive Coach, holding a Practitioner Diploma with the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) and a Master Practitioner and Coach of NLP (MPNLP). I am a Global Member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy) and am registered with the UK General Hypnotherapy Register holding their General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP).
I am a qualified 'Mindfulness Now' teacher (UK College of Mindfulness Meditation) - a technique which integrates key elements of both Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) programmes.
