I have been a practicing family Counsellor and Coach since 1997, with a background in Sales, Marketing, Electronics, Security, and Building. This vast background and broad experience have led me to a style of coaching and event delivery hinged on compassion and understanding. I’ve been fortunate enough to acquire a well-honed skills set during my years of coaching, so that I can communicate on the same level with most people during my events. Throughout my school years, I struggled with profound self-esteem issues due to Dyslexia and in particular, being slow at Reading and Maths. Now I look at Dyslexia as a gift, not a curse. I feel that today’s definition of the family is unrecognizable, compared with the definition forty, thirty, even twenty years ago. Chaos has become typical of the modern family. It seems that we live in a ‘disposable’ society, where rather than fix things, people are quick to throw them away. So when it comes to relationships, my passion lies in how to make it last. How to learn to forgive, manage resentment, set boundaries, feel validated, work on trust, respect, and intimacy. Mostly, how to let love in.
Over the years, I have attempted to bring some order to the status quo, with “Keep it Simple” strategies, addressing issues that are a result of a convoluted dysfunctional family life many lead today. In our society, the traditional family has expanded to include Exes, parents of Exes, Blended families, step children, lovers, adopted children, and in-laws, etc. Most children at the Pre-school level these days don’t know what it’s like to have a Mother and Father live in the same house. When it comes to families, over the years, I’ve seen it all and can tackle anything.
I help individuals today prepare for a relationship, or those already in a relationship or marriage, make it a happy, healthy, long-lasting one. I focus on how to foster healthier, more productive relationships through my teaching, while also addressing explosive issues, which can drive families, relationships and marriages to breaking point, divorce and devastation that impacts generations. Also, I share my honest thoughts on conflict and chaos in those families. I will help you develop strategies, by discussing the 12 steps to happiness within yourself and in a relationship, along with supplying other practical life-long tools to resolve conflict, repair yourself, relationships and the marriages that you are part of, regardless of what state they are in. These events promise to change your life and the lives of those around you.
