MY OWN LIGHT BULB MOMENT
I love this work! It’s the thing that gives my life meaning. This has been the case ever since I had my own “light bulb moment” in 2004. Something inside me shifted – a profound realisation or awakening that I was part of something much greater than myself. After this, I realised that my life would never be the same again – and it wasn’t. I began to follow my heart much more than I had ever done previously. I developed a keen interest in psychology, philosophy, and spirituality. This drove me to study extremely hard – especially within the personal growth workshop environment – which I have spent the last 10-15 years or so delving into – subjects ranging from conscious sexuality and Tantra, to psychology and philosophy.
I have two degrees, one in Medicine and one in Parasitology. I have worked as a hospital doctor in the UK and Australia for 6 years. I started my own company 5 years ago and now work as a Contract Medical Consultant in the Pharmaceutical Industry (here’s a link to my professional profile).
I am a singer-songwriter and guitarist (here’s a link to my music), and I also enjoy physical disciplines such as circus and martial arts (including corde lisse and Jiu Jitsu).
I am currently training to become a Holistic Counsellor. This 18-month long training will complete this April 2019. I talk about this more here.
I have spent the last few years working with men and women (in workshops and in counselling sessions) to help to try to cultivate a new kind of “healthy masculinity” and “healthy femininity” in the world. I have been running men’s circles and women’s circles for the since 2016. Here is a link to an article about my men’s circles from the BBC.
This passion for personal growth and inquiry led me to look at parts of my own shadow – which has been a painful and difficult process at times, but has always been incredibly insightful and rewarding. The more awareness I have about myself, the more freedom I create in my life. Through my own journey of self-discovery, I have managed to positively transform many aspects of my life and my relationships. It is a constant life-long practice.
One of the most important reasons for my own transformation, has been my group work with men and women. Being able to share my deepest, darkest secrets with my brothers and sisters in a safe and supportive environment, and being able to hold space and support them, has been very healing for me. It has taught me the immense value of this work. This has ignited my passion for coaching and shown me that my deepest gift to the world is to share this knowledge with you.
I hope you will allow me to accompany you on your journey of self-discovery…
