Thank you for visiting my site. For the past 25 years, I have worked in the the worlds of marketing and live entertainment, and for about 20 years now at senior level in finance and human resources. I have held roles such as chief operating officer, finance & HR director, and chief executive officer.
For the past 5 years I have been a performance consultant based in Covent Garden in London's West End and offer HR services as well as coaching and mentoring for people that want to succeed in life and their career.
When a person chooses to see a coach, it's usually because they've reached an impasse in their life and need a professional to help them move forward. I believe that when that person chooses their coach, they choose them based on their credentials but mostly on the 'cuts and bruises' they've endured along the way. My own past experiences in life and my profession reassure clients that I can relate to them in some way or another, which I believe builds the all-important rapport that makes the whole experience worthwhile.
I've had my fair share of ups and downs. By the time I was 24, I had experienced more heartache and pain than most people do in a lifetime. I grew up in a strict Christian household as a young gay man and was outed by someone I considered to be a friend. As homosexuality was against my parents’ Christian beliefs, I was ordered to leave the family home immediately with nowhere to go. I sofa surfed as much as I could but I often had to sleep outside, but after 5 months I managed to get myself a place to live.
I took a few wrong turns for a while getting involved with some of London's finest, but after receiving a new home from the housing association and landing an entry level job in finance, I put everything of myself into turning my life around and rebuilding the relationship with my family.
In 2010, I discovered yoga and meditation and I believe both have contributed to healing the shame and rejection I was subjected to from coming out.
I feel that with my experience and knowledge about people and the mind, coupled with the values I live by, I can help clients reach any goal they set their minds' on.
