About me

100s of hours working 1-1 with clients has taught me that world is full of people trying to change their circumstances for the better. Some achieve it. Some don't. Some make tons of goals and get nowhere. Some do very little and all the goodies fall into their lap. Some achieve  goals and realize they're still miserable!

In short, there are no guarantees that goals and agressive action lead to success. Anything can derail us - a sudden illness, a broken relationship, bankrupty, a war. Life throws up all sorts of diversions. We simply can't have everything our own way all the time. We all know that, but sometimes imagine that if we invest in a coach, therapist or self-help manual our outer circumstances will change. They can and often will but what if they don't?

I'll tell you exactly what I can do for you. I can help you to alter the way you respond to your changing circumstances.

I can teach you powerful techniques that can dramatically alter the way the outer look. I have plenty of approaches in my toolkit - NLP, Human Givens, Transpersonal, Mindfulness but I principally focus on helping client's change their beliefs. I work from the perspective that unwanted thoughts arise from negative emotions which in turn arise from unhelpful beliefs. If you change the belief you change the response. What felt like an OW! can feel closer to a WOW! (If that is what you want).

I come form a teaching background and will often use a whiteboard to make our sessions creative and dynamic.

Some quotes that might some up my underlying approach:

'If you argue with reality, you lose, but only 100% of the time' (Byron Katie)

'There is no exit to the present moment' (Florian Schlosser)

'Circumstances don't matter. Only state of being matters' (Anon)

'We see things not as they are. We see things as we are' (The Talmud)
