About me
  
I come from a medical background and retired early to start a coaching practice.                                     >> More on qualifications  and experience

Why leave early?  

​​
I slowly realised that things of lasting value most often start with people, not programmes, and in relationships, not institutions. 
  
I’m in the autumn of life, when nature “scatters the seeds that will bring new growth…1, and I trust that long years of success and failure, joy and pain, esteem and humiliation have shaped me for a new role.
George Swingler Life & Transition Coach
Howard Thurman said “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” What makes me come alive is seeing others come alive, and grow. I heard a larger life calling, and found fewer and fewer reasons to wait until retirement age.

Why coaching specifically?

I'd been very fortunate to receive coaching in my job and, after sessions, I often asked myself "How did that happen?!" I couldn't remember the coach having told me what now seemed so clear. I was intrigued, learned more about coaching, and it's continued to grow on me, and in me. Simply put, it's transformative, if you let it be.

Einstein famously said that no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it, and our current perspectives have created global problems that can be solved only by different, more mature perspectives.

I want to serve people who are looking for those new perspectives, hope and direction, and to themselves become the change they want to see in the world.
