I began searching for answers to life’s existential questions and meaning at an early age.
I explored the spiritual side of the human condition, initially through mystic Christianity and the teachings of Rudolf Steiner; and later through the teachings of the Sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan. I engaged in various meditation practices, and for many years studied holotropic breathwork, a breathing method based on the work of Stanislav Groff which opens access into expanded states of consciousness for healing and self-exploration. About twenty years ago I began my search for a contemporary teacher – a self-realized human being who actually lives his teaching in the midst of every day life. I feel extremely blessed by coming across several living examples, providing me with ongoing direction and inspiration.
Awakening more and more to my true nature changed my way of being. I discovered an inner stillness and warmth, a non-judgmental way of listening, a spacious sense of clarity, a tender depth of empathy, and an acute ability to intuit truth.
The confluence of everything I have learned and realized though my personal and professional development, and my love of guiding others in their own awakening drew me to life-coaching, counselling and mentoring. I am trained in Hakomi – Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy – (working towards certification) and R-CS (RE-Creation of the Self Model of Human Systems) an extension of Hakomi developed by Jon Eisman, one of the Hakomi founders. I am a HeartMath® Certified Coach and Mentor, and I am trained in the Havening Techniques®, a healing modality designed to help clients overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic encoding.
My experience in the business world as an architect and entrepreneur gives me a greater understanding of life’s practical issues and enhances my effectiveness as a Coach, counsellor and mentor. Coaching has profoundly impacted my life, particularly through my marriage to Susann, one of the most perceptive and effective Life Coaches I know. Jointly, we provide a safe space to explore ways to transition from one phase to the next for couples who want to move past limitations in their relationship and deepen their love, intimacy and mutual commitment.
