Passionate About 'Waking' Others Up
I work with people who are on missions to transform themselves, their world and the world around them.
I was born in South Africa, immigrated to New Zealand when my first son was born in 2007, and then relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2015 to help set up a Software Line of Business for a global IT company, and currently managing their Business Operations. Through this amazing experience, I learned that risk and action is required when you are striving for a better life available to you and others.
Sport has been a thread throughout my life. In my teens, I broke my ankle whilst playing basketball couldn’t continue playing rugby, and turned to Martial Arts. I won my school, state, regional and national championships and competed internationally at a world championship level and eventually started coaching Martial Arts when my competitive career slowed down. After school I studied a Bachelors and Masters in Business Administration, and used my Martial Arts experience and background to teach unarmed combat, reality based self defense and worked as a venue- and close security officer. When I met my wife and settled down, it was time for the next phase in my life and I became a project manager in Corporate and Merchant Banking, then in a Business Process Outsourcing company, and eventually immersed myself in project and program management of large-scale IT and digital transformations for private and public sector organisations, and spent the last 15 enjoyable years in senior, leadership roles in IT.
In my exploration and research of self-development, coaching, psychology, therapy, and more, I discovered that coaching was more future-facing and action-orientated. That was it. I loved what I did, but made me ticked was in people - connecting with them, understanding them, and helping them grow and develop. That’s where I focused my energy and studies.
Now, after many years of experience helping clients step into their power and deliver great results, my clients are the ones at the forefront of change and transformation.
How did i get involved in the principles?
I started the process of self-development in my teens and over my years was exposed to a number of so called practices, approaches and beliefs. These ranged from affirmations to mindfulness, from EFT to the Sedona Method, CBT to NLP but I could never settle and find that one turnkey, profound, lasting way that I was looking for. So I kept searching...
This searching led me down completely new pathways and I stumbled upon Michael Neill’s Inside Out Revolution. After listening to the audio book a number of times, I had to get the book and managed to get more involved in the three principles world over the last 5 years. I’ve read all the three principles books that I could get my hands on, watch every video available and listened to numerous podcasts and audios. This led me to complete the Creating the Impossible program and completing the Thriving Coaches Blueprint by Jamie Smart, Coaching from the Inside Out Program with Michael Neill, completing the year-long Conscious Leadership School with Chantal Burns and was coached by Chantal, Sandy Krot, Keith Blevens and Valda Monroe, Jamie Smart and more, resulting in a deeper, more spiritual understanding of what it means to be human.
What I discovered challenged many of the beliefs and understandings I had previously held. I discovered that you could change your life without changing you. I discovered that through a different lens, people were able to truly see themselves and those around them and reconnect more deeply with each other in a way I had never seen before. I could see that our true nature as human beings was one of joy, peace, insight and wisdom, and recognising this in ourselves and in each other was truly life-changing in a relationship. I knew this was what I had been searching for.
I took everything I had learned and began to apply this with my clients and in my own life and now offering it to you.
