Where other psychologists & “experts” focus on symptoms or text books, I strip away “the crap”, use brutal honesty to deliver change and high performance.

For over 20 years I have been working with Professional Athletes, Private Individuals and Corporations. Focusing on developing, increasing and maximising high performance as well as the harmonious environments within which it breeds.

Understanding "The Person" is key to achievement and high performance. A life long passion in people led me to blend Western theories like psychology and psychotherapy with Eastern practises such as Ayurveda and Buddhism to give me that understanding. Intricate knowledge of the human "self" and body language enables me to understand what a person is really saying and feeling. Made up of many different elements of which the spoken word is just one, body language is THE only voice I listen to when working with people.

My people-based approach means I have enjoyed great results when working with clients.

My Corporate Clients hire me to deliver critical contract/acquisition negotiations, highly complex change and transformation initiatives or develop consistenly high performing teams.

My Professional Athlete clients hire me to help them deliver high performance, remove any and all blockers to their high performance and enable “push-button delivery” of high performance.

My Private Clients hire me to help them “live happy”.

Permanent Temporary Connections

The last few months has been filled with a unity amongst strangers that is seemingly impossible to create when there are no overriding, special circumstances. First we had the World Cup where nations from across the World selected their talented team and travelled to Rio to compete in Football's most...

Hope for Kindness

I only use Facebook to maintain my Dont Mind Life community page so generally, if there is nothing of interest in my timeline on the first page, I don't look beyond it. Similarly I am not one to post my every movement either. A few days ago, there...

The events that have occurred this week in the U.S. have been overwhelmingly upsetting. First there were the bombs in Boston, designed to create and send a message of confusion, doubt and fear. Then there was the explosion in Texas. At the time of writing this article I am truly...

Hope: How to Find It

(2) Comments | Posted February 18, 2013 | 12:17 AM

Question: If you don't have hope, does that mean there is less hope, no hope, or things are just hopeless?

It has been a year since my last article on the Huffington Post, and it has been quite a 12 months. I cannot believe the time has flown by so...

When Goals Go Bad

I recently caught up with a previous client who is a professional athlete who was telling me about his Christmas and New Year's regime. It seems that he did not have a break from his intense preparation leading up to the new competitive season. Our conversation got me reflecting on...

Do You Want It or Not?

The last month has been quite intensive in terms of coaching people from around the world about their careers and how to work for the job they want and get it. It appears people have returned from their summer vacations and have a renewed impetus to make a change. However,...

Suppression, Regression, Depression

(2) Comments | Posted October 24, 2011 | 5:51 PM

Every single one of my private clients always starts off in our first few sessions saying that their life is a seemingly constant bombardment of pressure and stress, with no real purpose or direction. It would appear there has never been a more complex time where we find our lives...

The Negative Power of Prejudice

We have all had the experience after a lovely meal, sitting around the dinner table with friends, when a healthy debate ensues where opinions, theories and ideas are tossed around. The topics can be wide ranging, and the atmosphere can become heated depending on peoples' passions.

In my humble...

The Job Interview: Get Ahead of the Rest -- Turn No Into Yes

(2) Comments | Posted October 7, 2011 | 3:32 PM

This week I am departing slightly from my usual topic of general techniques and alternative awareness on life and instead dealing with what appears to be a recurring theme with most of my clients right now. No matter what the original engagement is, after a few coaching sessions the questioning...

Hit Bottom? Time to Get Up!

When I started writing for The Huffington Post, I considered working my articles up to a crescendo full of helpful steps. Setting the stage with the first few articles, where I would cover some basic principles of living life, followed by increasingly intense topics tackling everyday issues head on. However,...

Following my first article I received a few emails with some exciting comments that told me I had "hit the spot" for a few readers. It appears there are many people challenged every day with some form of suffering who have also personalized the circumstances and started living the wrap-around...

Can't Prevent It So Prepare For It

Today represents possibly the toughest circumstances in recent times to live life. Certainly since the '80s, the general population has not known a time when jobs are hard to keep or find nor when spare cash in our pocket is jingling rather than folding. The stresses and pressures that this...
