Why Work With Me?

You're bright, probably above average working in a high pressure, intellectual environment.  

On the surface, it probably seems that you are doing ok.

But you have some self-doubt, a lack of confidence, you feel stuck in your job, stuck in your private life, or overwhelmed by anxiety and worry.

Maybe things don't feel right, you've lost your passion and motivation, somehow you've arrived here, but you're not sure how you got there. 

Maybe you feel like you want to make a change, but you're not sure what you need to change and how you need to change it. And it feels like you are going round in circles.

Maybe you are not sure what you want, or who you want to be anymore.

Maybe you feel that there has to be more for you in life, more purpose in your work, better relationships, and more time for yourself.

 
 

Who I work with

I work with professionals who are working in a highly demanding, international and intellectual environment. 

Sometimes it is their intellect that lets them down and doesn't let them see their own blind spots. They over analyse and get stuck in unproductive thinking and are out of touch with their emotions and feelings.

Or they suffer from a lack of confidence, and a lack of belief in their own abilities despite the objective evidence around them. 

Or they are highly sensitive individuals who feel overwhelmed by their emotions and get easily drained and need to understand how to collaborate with others, build relationships while taking care of themselves. 

 

Common problems and questions

Many of my clients come to me with similar questions and concerns. I've shared some of these concerns below.

"I want to spend more time with my family as well as progress my career, and I can't see how to do both."

"I procrastinate until the stress is so big that I then use that fear to motivate me, it is exhausting and I end up rushing my work."

"I want to improve my performance at work, gain more focus and increase the quality of work but I don't know what I need to do."

"I'm a perfectionist, and I can't stop holding myself to high standards, its starting affect my relationships at work and home."

"I feel anxious all the time, sometimes it is overwhelming, and I can't sleep."

"I'm at a crossroads in life; I don't know which direction to take"

"I want to be more confident and comfortable in my own skin."

"I look at other people, and I want to be as calm and focussed as them but I not sure how to do it."

"I want to be happier, gain a sense of inner peace, be able to spend time with my family; I don't want to be rushing around anymore."

"I'm too busy, there is too much to do, it is like a maelstrom in my head, and I can't see a way out."

"I feel empty inside; I've no motivation anymore, I can't seem to engage in things like I used to."

"I want to change careers, maybe start my own company, but it feels too risky and scary, but I know I can't stay where I am."

"I let people tell me what to do, I get mad but I never say a word."

"I have to work really hard to be smart, people think I'm smart but I have to work very hard to keep up with everyone else"

"I feel like there is a part of me missing, but I'm not sure what, other people seem to be fine, maybe it is just me, it's like there is a hole in me"
