In a past life… on the corporate treadmill.
I’m married to my beautiful wife, Helen and have four wonderful, adult children. I live in vibrant Melbourne here on the east coast of Australia.
When I was (much) younger I played contact sports, drank on the high side, worked long hours and thought I was bullet-proof. But life has a way of throwing jarring events in your path, giving you the opportunity to really change who you are as a person, to change what you embody, to humble yourself and be grateful for what you have. This is only after you have broken down all resistance and accept responsibility to re-think your world view. As I did.
I now enjoy a balanced lifestyle including meditation and exercise. I am interested in hypnosis, longevity and living a wholesome, organic, plant-based way of being. I believe we can live in harmony with ourselves, in harmony with the natural world of this planet, if we all make a concerted effort to change our ways. In the long run, it’s not just about climate change its about saving ourselves as a species.
By taking an authentic, natural and people centred approach to clients, I found connection to be easy and change inevitable. They say I have a knack of creating within them the self-belief necessary to make positive and permanent behaviour changes. As a professional, I will be on your side, encouraging you and holding you to account to achieve your desired outcome in a safe and confidential environment.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
I use habit change coaching to create daily life style changes for clients in the areas of nutrition, breathing, sleep, stress reduction and strengthening muscles and bones.
As a certified breathing coach, I can share with you techniques to improve your health and reduce the impact of stress on your body.
I am also a proud participant of Melbourne Men’s Group which is a volunteer organisation focussed on men’s personal growth, wellbeing and an enhanced community.
