About Me

I am a Clinical Pastoral Therapist & Self-Awareness Coach

Over the last 10 years, I have discovered that many business owners and people in professional careers struggle to balance the pressures of work and career and develop stress and anxiety. It this environment they can develop coping mechanisms that make the situation worse. They often wish the could find a better way.

Clients who worked with me report the following results.

They become:

  • become more focused and efficient at work;
  • cope better with difficult feelings, such as anger, fear and sadness;
  • develop a deeper connection with themselves, loved-ones and colleagues;
  • start to enjoy their life again

All this can be attained through setting aside twenty minutes a day.

I have used the self-awareness and self-empowerment processes and techniques that I share with my clients myself to deal with the many and varied pressures of life. I have gone through various life challenges such as divorce, career changes and death of loved-ones myself.
Over the years I have found that mindfulness to be a solid base on which to develop the necessary self-awareness and self-empowerment that bring the results mentioned above.

I truly believe it to be the most efficient and effective approach in finding fulfillment in life.

Therefore I developed a step-by-step process to help me develop that solid foundation that help me to be more focused and efficient, cope better with strong feelings and developing deeper connection with my Self, others and the world around me.

Now my passion is to share with with others.
