MY LIFE HAS BEEN ALL ABOUT CHANGE
I KNOW HOW HARD IT CAN BE TO MOVE FORWARDS
AND HOW SATISFYING IT IS TO DO IT WELL
I was born in Germany and moved to the UK when I was six years old.
I lived in Oxfordshire, Leeds and Norfolk with my parents and three brothers.
When I was 19, I went to Cambridge to study Linguistics, then moved to London.
I first worked for a graduate recruitment startup, then followed a passion for writing and made a leap to publishing, editing travel guides.
In my spare time, I put on club nights for fun. In 2008, I took the plunge and left my job as an editor to turn the nights into a successful events company.
Running my first business gave me a taste for an entrepreneurial life, but I realised I wanted my work to be more fulfilling and align directly with my values and wider goals.
I began a process of self-reflection and worked with some amazing mentors, who inspired me to take my career into my own hands and choose a new direction.
I made a plan for change, and in 2010, began training as a psychotherapist. I qualified in 2016 and work as a therapist in London.
In early 2014 I decided to develop a portfolio career and trained as a coach.
I also co-founded and still run The Coaching School, a centre of excellence for coaching committed to training the next generation of outstanding coaches.
I work as a professional and leadership coach, supporting individuals privately and in organisations, and training people to bring coaching skills and mindsets into their personal and professional lives.
In 2014 I made the biggest change in my life so far and became a dad.
I live in east London with my wife and daughter.
I am committed to helping people find meaning and make effective, sustainable and life-enhancing changes in their personal and professional lives.
I believe in the limitless potential for change, know the value of collaboration and bring the power of real connection to all my work.
