About me

In today’s rapidly changing market, leaders are at the forefront, steering the ship in turbulent waters. It's a high-stakes, rapid-pace environment where personal wellbeing often takes a backseat to professional demands.

The pressure is intense!

But imagine this:
What if you could sustain your professional success without letting your personal life and health fall by the wayside?

Here’s what I see:

  • Leaders tackling stress and warding off burnout, yet they don’t want to lose their drive or competitive edge.
  • The relentless pace impacts their relationships and personal wellbeing.
  • Top performers becoming more estranged from the things that truly matter to them, all in the name of career advancement.

This is where I step in:

  • Together, we craft a balance that merges professional success with personal health, avoiding the usual either/or scenario.
  • I’ll offer tailored, science-backed strategies to each unique leadership style.
  • The aim is to enhance self-awareness, self-regulation, and relational skills, enriching both our personal and professional lives.
  • We craft objectives connected to my client's deepest values, empowering them to lead not just with efficiency, but with authenticity and conviction.

If you want to have your proverbial cake and eat it, let’s talk. 
We’ll redefine what success looks like for you, so you can excel in every facet of life, not just the boardroom.

Further information

At age 5, when I had barely started reading, my parents gave me a book entitled: “1001 Questions and Answers.” Paging through that large book with its red cover and bright yellow lettering is one of my favourite childhood memories. I would read and re-read the factoids about how the world works – enthralled by the amazing complexity of it all! Questions like: What is the largest animal? How fast does a nerve-impulse travel? How deep is the deepest part of the sea? and How many planets are in our solar system?

This insatiable curiosity about the universe and its inhabitants is the golden thread running throughout my career. Over the past 10 years, it has served me well in my work as general practitioner, health innovation consultant and life coach.

The reason I have migrated from mainstream healthcare into life coaching was in response to a growing frustration: a frustration with the fragmented health system. Despite the incredible wealth of treatments and cures offered by general medicine, I couldn’t turn a blind eye to the shortcomings: The disheartened patient when doctors cannot provide them with a ‘by-the-book’ diagnosis; the helplessness of the doctor, when a patient struggles to break their unhealthy habits; the confusion when a patient is ‘cured’ on paper, but they still experience suffering and pain.

This mounting frustration inspired me to explore further, burned by the question: isn’t there a better way to serve people?

It is this burning question that led me into the field of health innovation, finding creative solutions to give patients access to doctors. That same question led me into the world of integral coaching and changed my entire perspective of health and wellness. I discovered that every person has an inherent ability to master their own lives; and that, through a series of powerful coaching questions, this innate wisdom can be unlocked, opening entirely new possibilities of health and wholeness.
