Helping people think and grow

I help people grow and flourish, think more deeply about what they do and who they are and then encourage them to make choices that will allow them to live and work more courageously and more successfully (by their own standards) in the face of life's inevitable trials and tribulations. I achieve this by creating a space within which my clients can safely allow themselves to be challenged and either consider different perspectives on what they (think they) already know or discover whole new worlds. 

Since 2010 I've trained, coached, supervised, mentored and guided over a thousand coaches during my time as Programme Leader of the MSc Coaching Psychology at the University of East London (2015-2018), my role as Course Lead at Animas Center for Coaching, where I designed and facilitated two ICF-accredited training courses (Positive Psychology and Existential Coaching) and during my work with clients (many of which coaches) in private practice. 

I have presented at conferences around the world and my book, An Introduction to Existential Coaching, has been published by Routledge, one of the largest international academic publishers. My work and philosophy have been shaped by my degrees in Psychology (BSc), Applied Positive Psychology (MSc) and Existential Coaching (MA) as well as coaching countless clients and training and supervising a large number of coaches from a broad variety of schools and approaches.

Due to the exploding number of coaches and the rapidly growing competition in the industry, the demand for advanced training, coaching, supervision, business-mentoring and elements of therapy has been growing steadily, so that I decided to offer supervision as a separate branch of my business in 2016. I've developed my signature approach, Rocket Supervision (a combination of the above mentioned demands), during my Diploma in Coaching Supervision between 2017-2018. 

I'm warm, upbeat, supportive, fair and kind as well as challenging, fast-paced, thorough, curious and direct. You can learn more about me on my personal website. Or why not add me on Facebook or check out my LinkedIn?
