My life has been all about change

I know how hard it can be to move forward
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 clubnights 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 psychodynamic psychotherapist. I qualified in 2016 and practice in London and online.

Along the way, I decided to develop a portfolio career and trained as a coach in 2014.

I also co-founded and still work with The Coaching School, a centre of excellence for coaching committed to training and supporting 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.

I am working towards ICF Professional Certified Coach Accreditation and work according to the Code of Ethics and Core Competencies laid out by the ICF.

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.
