I’m married to Susanne and we currently live with our four boys near Augsburg, in Southern Germany. I spend my time between Germany and the UK. We enjoy cycling, walking and exploring the richness of each country’s historical heritage. My personal interests include music and I’m a competent keyboard player and enjoy making music on piano, harpsichord and organ. I also enjoy reading books which challenge my assumptions and support my personal growth and development. I also admit I’m a VW Camper and Bus aficionado! Although not actively involved at present, I have in my time been a Parish Council chair, member of a Parochial Church Council and also a school governor. I have been employed by the John Lewis Partnership for over 37 year witnessing the Founder’s intention of ‘something to live for as well as to live by’.
Within all of us is the desire to deserve health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression. In other words living an authentic life and speaking our truth. Yet living an authentic life can be tricky least of all knowing ‘what is my authentic life?’ It has been said that if we are alive we need help. My highest purpose as a coach is to help you recognize and connect with your own ‘inner coach’ : that source of Divine wisdom which each and everyone of us arrives with on this planet. I will hold you in a safe space where you are held in intention and vulnerability as you make your own journey of inquiry, to gently question what it means to be alive as a Human. I meet you where you are and whatever you bring to a coaching session is always welcome. I believe we are here to love, bless and prosper each other and every encounter I have experienced as a coach has taught me something about myself. I look forward to working with you.
Our Human experience is complex, oftentimes entangled, and at worst can feel overwhelming. My approach is simply to acknowledge this and to coach the whole person : that is coaching ‘wholly’ and also ‘holy’. My sessions uncover what is asking to be seen; old patterns that no longer serve you are identified and dissolved and new patterns are defined to take you forward - it is like a homecoming. You can expect me to be honest, integrous and confidential. To support you I may use family and organisational constellations, TFT/EFT (you tapping your acupressure points in a sequence), Mindfulness techniques (including some aspects of Transcendental Meditation), Ho’oponopono, Mantra’s, Mirror work, poetry and music. None of these are a given and I will only suggest these if it serves you. I am comfortable with face to face meetings, telephone meetings or using online technology (skype, whatsapp video, webex, zoom or similar).
