Positive Psychology meets Existentialism. Live a more authentic & full life; face anxiety & be happy
I'm a highly enthusiastic and well-trained coach, mediator and personal development facilitator determined to introduce effective programmes to schools, companies and individuals. I am a certified Existential Coach (MA) and Regent’s College-accredited mediator for alternative conflict resolution. My MSc in Applied Positive Psychology has led me to work with some of the leading figures in the European Positive Psychology scene and on various personal development programmes, most notably LifeClubs, the German "Schulfach Glück" (School Subject Happiness) and the Haberdasher Askes Wellbeing Curriculum.
I support the development of integrative approaches to coaching and therapy. I am a core team member of the Association of Integrative Coach-Therapy Professionals, part of the core team at London's Personal Well-being Centre (who have put forward the first coherent model on integrative coach-therapy practice (ICT)) and I work as a Personal Consultant in private practice.

You want to be happy, content, fulfilled, whole and living a full life? You wanna set and/or reach a goal or make a very difficult decision? You have a desire to grow as a person, learn and understand things better, be able to manage hardship and negative feelings and build defences against life’s many lemons? Maybe you want to cease the day, everyday, resolve conflict within and around you, be proud of yourself, improve a certain relationship or learn discipline and self control? Perhaps you aim to maximise your personal or professional success, make the best use of your time, motivate yourself and stop procrastinating, discover your strengths and what you’re good at, build resilience against depression, burn-out or loss of meaning? Give coaching if you would like to change or improve an aspect of your life (private or business).
I differentiate between life and business coaching
Positive Existential Coaching focuses on personal development and life coaching. It can be described as positive psychology coaching within an existential framework. That means it helps people live a happier and more fulfilled life, focusing on the positives, but not ignoring the inevitable struggles that life holds.
For most people it is not necessary to extensively revisit their childhood or relationships with their parents to achieve change in the above. Coaching (unlike most therapy) therefore focuses mainly on the present and future.
An existential perspective appreciates that there are certain boundaries and that life often is a constant struggle. Everybody experiences anxiety and distress, simply because we are alive. At some point in our life we will inevitably be confronted with uncertainty, loneliness, death and meaninglessness. This unique approach to coaching enables people to come to terms with this more ...
Face-to-face coaching is the most effective type of coaching. Where possible, I prefer to meet clients in person at least once before going on a development journey together. If you haven't experienced private coaching, give me a call for a free consultation.
Coaching can be quite effective online. I meet with a number of clients via telephone, skype and had even had some very productive email and text chat sessions.
I have led personal development programmes and coaching groups at universities, schools and charities. I have trained coaches, counsellors and mentors at the University of East London and NSPC. I can offer short courses, group coaching, PPD session (Personal & Professional Development) as well as a 7-year once-a-week school curriculum.
Balance has been a major theme in my life. I was lucky enough to have realised fairly early that most of the things that work really well are well balanced. The people, activities, jobs, attitudes, courses or knowledge that I have enjoyed most are all well balanced.
Yet many people I come across have a very narrow focus. This is very useful at times when distractions need to be minimised. People with a clear focus tend to achieve more. But without a wider perspective on things you can feel lost and quickly lose touch with what’s really important in your life.
Everything I do - coaching, conflict resolution and personal development education - is aimed to put the focus on what’s important while maintaining a wider perspective. For some it’s the bigger picture that’s missing, for others the focus on what’s at hand. But it’s always best to keep both in mind.
That is why I have taken positive psychology (a science that focuses on what’s right with people, on happiness, wellbeing and more ...
