WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE. I am a Certified Master Trainer of NLP, as well as an Author, Coach, Entrepreneur & Property Investor.
I live in Ibiza and travel extensively as I love new environments, cultures and experiences. I coach and run Retreats all over the world, including but not limited to India, South Africa, Ibiza and the UK. I am a Master Trainer and Developer of NLP and I use leading edge tools and models to create rapid personal and professional transformation with individuals the world over.
I am committed to modelling the ‘difference that makes a difference’ in life and business. And I love consistently raising the unconscious to conscious awareness with my clients and helping them to have profound breakthroughs in their thinking and lives.
I run NLP Foundation events, NLP Business Practitioners, Retreats and High Performance Coaching programmes which are a unique combination of leading edge NLP and principles from The Spotlight System™ which I developed to help leaders, coaches and entrepreneurs call life on their terms and make a real impact in the world.
I am passionate about working with people who want to express their uniqueness and authenticity while in the service of others. My other passions include learning, coaching, adventures, being in nature, surrounded by animals, climbing mountains, travelling, cats, my home in Ibiza and modelling excellence. And there’s more!
My personal journey has largely informed my work. Following a very unstable childhood and becoming heavily in debt in my twenties I managed to turn my life around, some might say against all odds. I moved beyond the dysfunctions of my childhood; depression and low self-esteem and ended up running a number of successful businesses, ultimately turning over in excess of £100,000 a month.
In some respects I’ve been there, done it, got the t-shirt and lost it! I have been homeless, beaten and broke but ultimately I have grown richer for all these challenging and varied experiences and have become a unique coach and facilitator of individuals, small businesses and teams.
Having apprenticed with Sue Knight, author of NLP At Work, I developed my own unique style and system that has enabled me to connect with anyone from any background and get results fast. I am enormously grateful for the support and space Sue has given me to find my own unique talents and express them in the world and so much of what I now do and share has been modelled from her and indeed her mentor Gene Early, who now coaches me personally. You will recognise their words and style in the way that I write, coach and facilitate.
My open programmes attract people from all walks of life. As well as coaching coaches, business owners and teams I work with – but am not limited to – not-for-profit organisations, authors, healers, photographers and I have recently been working with a ‘Team GB’ World No2 Trampolinist. We’re now aiming for No 1!
I am currently writing my second book ‘New Life Paradigm² – Your Guide To Living A Life Of Passion, Purpose & Freedom’.
For more about me you can read an interview conducted recently by It’s Rude To Stare here. Extracts of that interview are below.
Where are you and what are you going to be doing today?
I’m in Cape Town and going to Cape Point to be in nature and meditate on the magic of life!
Tell us three words that describe you?
Different, Inspiring, Loving
Do you have a favourite quote?
Many! One of them is the Mariamme Williamson quote – Our Greatest Fear
What is your earliest memory of music?
Living in southern Spain when I was about 5 or 6 years old and hearing them play flamenco guitar… to this day, there is nothing quite like it! And I live in a gypsy neighbourhood in Ibiza now and often have the gift of listening to them play. It is transcendent!
What’s your favourite hangout in London/Worldwide?
It has to be Ibiza, my home. I live in a Lighthouse hugging the castle wall overlooking to Port. My roof terrace has 360 views and is simply breath taking. Other than that I feel very at home in Palolem, Goa!
Can you tell us about your current happenings?
I’m currently running workshops out here in Cape Town for people who run various projects in the townships out here – they are essentially charities helping people with drug addiction, sexual violence, crime or education in some of the most deprived parts of South Africa. It’s very rewarding to be working with people who are so passionate about making a meaningful difference in the world. Then I’m back in the UK delivering a workshop for people in Bournemouth and then home to Ibiza where I do quite a bit of coaching for people all around the world. And I can have more time for myself, running on the beach, being in nature and having fun.
What’s in store for the next year?
Wow! Lots… Ibiza this summer, popping back to the UK to deliver an NLP Practitioner, Master Prac and Trainer the Trainer in London, a Retreat in the Netherlands in September, another Retreat in Ibiza in October and then back to Goa for winter and another couple of Retreats out there. So many Retreats I might end up being a hermit! And all of this, mixed in with lots of coaching, connecting with friends, writing, reading, travelling, fun, sunshine and being in nature. And finishing my second book!
What’s your favourite thing to do on a Sunday?
Being in nature! A long walk or simply being at peace and one with the world.
What was the last thing that really made you stop and stare?
The wild seal I saw on the harbour steps yesterday… beautiful!
