I’m Gary and I provide open, honest and effective coaching that helps you achieve your goals, have better relationships, overcome challenges and lead more purposeful and meaningful lives.
I’ve lived in a couple of different countries, at the start of my life I lived in the Middle East in the Oman before returning the UK to finish schooling in my teenage years. I’ve then lived in Sweden and I currently live in Belgium.
I’ve got over 20 years of experience working across industries and sectors. I’ve served in the British Royal Air Force, designed navigation systems for cars, won and managed UK and EU research funding and started my own tech company.
I coach within a value-based model called Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). In ACT we place a lot of emphasis on connecting with your values so that you can make meaningful choices.
I value openness, honesty and authenticity. I don’t like deception and manipulation, this is why I use an evidence-based model with my coaching. I’m trying to be open and honest with myself, my family and my clients. This is difficult to achieve but very rewarding, this is why the emphasis on living your values is important in ACT, you get a greater sense of vitality from value-based living.
