MY COACHING STORY
Coaching and the Positive Mental Fitness Proramme changed my life,
and it will change your and your team's lives too.
I've lived in Oxford most of my life. I met my wife when we were at school and have been married for 29 years. I love baking bread and have a wood-fired Portuguese oven which is terrific for sourdough and making the most amazing home made pizza. I haven't really had a 'career' as such, my plan was always to work hard and be there for my family as much as possible. I love being outside and I have three favourite places 1) The end of our garden 2) Fiscardo and 3) The 1000 Islands. Oh, and I love the Eight Bells at Eaton, if you get a chance, go there or get a Tommy's Thai Takeaway.
I met my coach in 2010 on a flight from Atlanta to London. That chance encounter on a 747, was a pivotal moment in my life. It helped me get more direction and purpose, led to two promotions, helped me improve my work and family relationships and led to me becoming more the person I wanted to be.
I benefitted from coaching so much I decided to become one. In 2016, I signed up for a nine month ILM Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring course at Oxford Brookes University. I have been coaching ever since and am now working with Positive Intelligence Inc to deliver Positive Mental Fitness Coaching.
Coaching is a powerful alliance between coach & coachee designed to forward and enhance lifelong growth and development. Working together, we will focus on your goals and actions to uncover your dreams and aspirations and help you thrive at work and home.
I have extensive experience in administration, managing administration, fundraising and serving as a trustee on charity boards.
I look forward to meeting you.

awakens the thought and prevents drowsiness.” – Lu Yu, The Classic Art of Tea
