Positive Psychology meets Existentialism. Live a more authentic & full life; face anxiety & be happy
Life is fascinating, challenging, exciting, fun, thought-provoking and complex. I love it and it scares me. Nobody is immune to the anxiety that comes with being alive but I learned to embrace the whole spectrum rather than trying to suppress or avoid the so-called "negative" feelings. Happy to offer you a space to explore who you are and how to best navigate through this beautiful mess :)

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 ...
I offer face to face and online services. Where possible, I prefer to meet clients in person at least once before going on a development journey together. If you haven't experienced personal coaching, give me a call for a free consultation and I'll tell you more about what's going to happen.
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 hundereds of coaches, counsellors and mentors at the University of East London, NSPC adn Animas Centre for Coaching. I can offer short courses, group coaching, PPD session (Personal & Professional Development) as well as comprehensive and structured personal and social development lessons ("happiness classes" if you will).
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 ...
