“To live in each moment, serve others and be curious.”

Curious about Life,

The Interconnected-Ness Of All,

The Power Of Belief & Responsibility

And the Joy in Simplicity

Passionate about learning, wellness, personal development and whatever life throws at us.

With a background in Psychology, Computer Science, Management and sustainability, I coach and help people to be the best version of themselves and to think, be and do better in life.

MY STORY

I was born in South Africa amidst interesting times of conflict and stress. My father died at an early age (39) of stress related concerns, I was conscripted into the army unwillingly and saw the stress of a violent racially conflicted environment. I realised the power of good self discipline to deal with stress.

A Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology and Computer Science followed by a post grad qualification in management and marketing was just the start of the learning curve. Later on I completed my NLP Masters, became a qualified Hypnotherapist, management trainer and accredited Mental Health First Aid instructor.
To date, I have seen hundreds of clients in a private capacity for counselling, therapy and coaching.
I have also worked with multiple organisations and teams with coaching and training.
On the corporate business side, I have worked extensively in sales, marketing, IT and management and have been on senior leadership teams of a number of large organisations before ending up in a government role working within sustainability and efficiency.

Primarily working with behavioural change I am a strong speaker/presenter.

Along the way I was a volunteer mentor at a lifeline organisation, president of a top Toastmasters club and started in a NLP professionals group that has continued for the past 10 years.
With a passion for sustainability, wellness and continuous learning I live a fit and healthy life in Auckland with a wide variety of hobbies and active pursuits. In my spare time (ha) I also facilitate Mental Health First Aid training, teach physical fitness, marry people (celebrant) and enjoy a life of constant curiosity....

I currently work as a change behaviour specialist, leadership trainer, business consultant and mentor, persuasive communication, life and thinking coach.
