I’m one of the early generations of what is now known as third culture children. Having a father who lived and worked abroad and I was raised in the Middle East in Oman. Before returning to the UK at the year of 9.

I trained as an Engineer in the Royal Air Force working on fast jets and transport helicopters. After leaving the airforce I worked with Jaguar Cars, Saab, Vauxhall and Nissan developing in car navigation systems.

In 2007 I moved to Brussels , Belgium working to deliver EU funding projects coordinating multinational partners and teams spread across Europe and sometimes the globe.

Despite this I’ve always felt lost and stuck and I never felt truly happy and fulfilled with my life.

As I approached my mid life I realised that I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do with my life. I was disconnected from people and my personal relationships were in a mess. I was burning out and not coping with my high levels of anxiety and stress.

My consultancy business was failing and went bankrupt, my ten year relationship broke down and I felt at the lowest point in my life for years.

I reached out for help and got coached and after an intensive coaching programme I discovered that I felt more satisfied helping others directly. Helping them overcome stress, build better relationships and build extraordinary lives.

After taking a mindfulness course and beginning my daily meditation practice I discovered Acceptance and Commitment Training. A powerful action based life coaching method for getting your life unstuck, reducing anxiety and stress and helping you find purpose and meaning.

I’m now a certified mindfulness trainer and one of the few life coaches using Acceptance and Commitment Training as a model for my clients. An evidence based model that helps you create and live an extraordinary life.

If you are a mid life professional, feel like you have lost your way and want to find back your motivation, passion and have more meaning apply now and find out how you can get your life moving again.
