How I work

The way I work can be summarised using the following model, SHINE:
  • Self-realisation, self-empowerment: I aim to contribute information/knowledge, guidance, and, when I can, insight. I want to inspire you. I like to, when possible, guide you towards direct inner experience of your deeper being. All this to give you what you need to move to the next level in your life.
  • Holistic: I strive to meet and coach the whole being on all levels: body, thought/intellect, emotion/feeling, intention/energy/vibration, soul/higher self/deeper being/Buddha nature.
  • Intuition: I have a strong intuitive sense that I trust and use.
  • Not about me: I have worked through a lot of my own stuff, so my focus can be 100% on you. My sole intention is to listen to and work with you to help you get what you want and become who you want to be.
  • Energy: One of my primary aims is to bring awareness to where you are blocked, tangled, stuck. As you gain this awareness, you become more free, loose, let go - and have more source energy available to get sorted and achieve what you want to achieve.

Tools and techniques

Some of the tools and techniques I use and teach are:
  • GROW Coaching (Goal, Current Reality, Options/Obstacles, Will/Way Forward)
  • Self-enquiry using, for example, Byron Katie's The Work
  • Meditation
  • Ho’oponopono
  • Tai Chi
  • David Allen's Getting Things Done
  • Problem Solving based on Lean principles
  • Law of Attraction drawn from Abraham Hicks and Bentinho Massaro
  • Self Love based on Louise Hay's work

Why come to me?

  • I have 25 years of experience working on myself and with others. I have succeeded in many areas in my own life and I am passionate about helping others achieve the same.
  • I have a particular gift for seeing where you are blocking yourself, and helping you to move through it.
  • I have had wide and deep life experiences. This gives me an open and unique perspective.
  • I have the ability to connect with you on a number of levels simultaneously. I meet you where you are in a grounded way and have good problem solving skills. At the same time, I am creative, empathetic, and have a strong intuitive sense.
  • I am agnostic - meaning that I am not attached to any particular method, religion, or spiritual discipline. I have always gone my own way - using what I find fun, useful, and inspiring- and that is how I work with others.
