Coaching is a powerful collaborative process for accessing greater clarity, wisdom, creativity & engineering your potential into reality.

Who do I coach?

If you’re motivated, committed, courageous, willing and ready to do what it takes to go from average to awesome, then you’re who I coach. The key themes with my clients are change, transformation, personal and professional life optimization and transition.

How do I coach?

We kick off by figuring out exactly what our true destination is and how things will be different when we get there. Let’s be honest, clarity is key when you set off on any journey. No point turning up in Austria when you actually meant to head to Australia! Equally, some of us hold life goals or dreams without ever exploring their true origins or what they might be in service of. If, say, they’ve been inherited  from implicit social messaging, even if that goal is achieved, the hoped for sense of fulfillment and satisfaction simply won’t be. We’ll work on that! Great coaching should always be about good clear directions and measurable outcomes.


How the rest unfolds varies from session to session, while I ensure we keep our eyes on the big prize. My coaching is what I call a developmental style, meaning I help you clarify what needs to be built, learned and developed, and then we craft strategies and actions to make sure that all becomes real and concrete in your life and your way of being. This way you build mastery rather than simply going for a one off win and supports you in literally becoming an upgraded you instead of just resembling a newer version from the outside. There’s a huge difference there. It also means that when the coaching is finished you are able to do it for yourself going forward. This is called ‘self-actualizing’. Great coaching should make you self-sufficient and not dependent!

A keystone of my process is a quality called presence. Like its close cousin mindfulness, a key marker of presence is the capacity to be fully present in the moment, but there is a little more to it than just that. Way more in fact.

What is it?

A quality of experience which comes online when we intentionally shift awareness from our typical ‘head-orientation’ into a way of being which is embodied, connected, centered and grounded in the moment. When we do so, so much more becomes available to us: More intelligence, more insight, more choice,  far greater wisdom.

I think of it as a kind of superpower. A meta-competency for living a fully engaged and intelligently responsive life. MIT’s Otto Scharmer, founder of the Presencing Institute tells us,

“When I started realizing that the most impressive leaders and innovators seem to operate from a different core process, one that pulls them into future possibilities, I asked myself: How can we learn to better sense and connect with a future possibility that is seeking to emerge? I began to call this operating from the future as it emerges “presencing.” Presencing is a blending of the words “presence” and “sensing.” It means to sense, tune in, and act from one’s highest future potential …”

It is a quality which sits at the heart of the coach training methodologies I’ve been developing and heading and is a game-changer for revealing and unlocking our greatest creativity, wisdom and potential. Truly great leaders and innovators embody this quality. I’ll support you in developing it and integrating it into your personal toolkit. There’s plenty more unique tools which I’ve integrated into my process as an innovator in the field of coaching and change myself. In my role as creator and head of the Human Potential Institute’s coaching programs, I’ve been integrating several cutting-edge tools and strategies many drawn from the fascinating new domain of Cognitive Science. This nascent multi-disciplinary subset of science is keenly exploring areas such such as Embodied Cognition and Embodied Mind—the discovery that mind is not simply the six pounds of jello between your ears, but is an integrated whole-body system which clearly needs to be addressed to exact real lasting change. This radical new direction appears to have left many of the dominant 20th century change models (such as the once ubiquitous NLP) looking rather dated and redundant these days.

All this said, who I coach is you—meaning the unique, fascinating, possibility-filled individual that only you are. I don’t agree with formulas in coaching and so there’s no one way in which we coach. Instead I hold the monumental range of possibilities that exists for you—for all of us really—and moment by moment bring my whole self to the change process. That way, together we might potentiate possibility into gold.

That is what I mean by alchemy!
