I was born into a low income working-class family in Christchurch New Zealand in 1948. It was also a fundamentalist religious family and both these circumstances played a significant part in my life and development.
On entering adulthood not only did I carry many limiting beliefs about myself and my prospects in life, but I also suffered acutely from a social phobia. I had huge of fear of social situations and spent my earlier life occupied in solitary pursuits such as long distance running and mountain climbing, which helped me avoid being around people.
But I was determined to heal this and explored many modalities of healing and transformation. I ended up training as a homeopath, energy healer and breath therapist, and ran my own practice through the eighties and nineties. I started to notice there were clear common themes to what people were going through, and it came to the point that I could sometimes almost predict what they were going to say, simply because they were playing out their own version of what seemed like universal themes.
I went on a huge quest to find out if there were such universal themes and whether others had researched and explored them. I found there were indeed such universal themes and the desire to understand them took me deeply into such diverse subjects as the world’s mythology, stress mastery, practices of awakening and enlightenment, the mind / body / energy relationship, and the nature of human creativity,
This led, in 2001, to the creation of Life Coach Associates which quickly established itself as a provider of world class life coach training programmes. After facilitating their training course for 10 years I stepped aside from that role in 2011, and since then have concentrated on writing and developing online transformational programmes.
My simple message is that we each have infinite potential to live extraordinary lives of success, achievement and fulfilment and, that there are clear consistent ways we can do this. My mission is to serve The Divine and humanity by helping people to become free of anything and everything that limits them and keeps them trapped in suffering.
