My Coaching and Work Experience
I am a hypnotherapist and life coach with in depth experience of both personal and business worlds, and use a unique blend of tools including NLP, hypnotherapy, breathing and Gurdjieffian methods.
A certified NLP practitioner with the International NLP Trainers Association, certified hypnotherapist with the American Board of Hypnotherapy, I have been practising full and part-time for over 20 years.
I also have over 30 years of business, corporate & SME experience as a technical IT consultant (systems designer, solutions architect, business analyst and manager) in parallel with part-time and full-time coaching. As a solutions architect and analyst I am known for my innovative solutions to projects (including two patents), inspiring technical teams, spotting hidden impacts, and helping mould the original business ideas into a simple tangible form which can be explained consistently, easily and non-technically.
I have experienced many of life's ups and downs for myself – emotional, relationship, family, financial and business, and I have made a point of mixing warmly with all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds and classes at all times of my life.
