I am a curious chap.
No, not curious strange – curious as in dying to find out what is the missing piece in your puzzle for sorting your issue. (Or your animal’s issue.)
I love collecting the clues gleaned by observing you and listening to you. Then the intrigue of finding where best to meet and support and challenge you in whatever way necessary for you to best relax, release and learn.
Do you have an injury, fresh or so old you have forgotten it? Or a movement habit that is literally wearing you out? Will you respond best to physical work, all sens-able, grounded and common sense? Or does energetic and subtle work make more sense to you? Perhaps your body is only reflecting a mental emotional pattern that will respond best to some NLP coaching?
We will only know if you come and play…!
The flexibility and universal nature of my work has proven itself with athletes, elderly, children and animals, including cats, dogs, horses and camels. (Yes camels, and an elephant but I am just bragging now)
It is important to me that our work leaves you with a deeper awareness, understanding and appreciation of yourself, how your issue came to be, and some practical skills or tools to apply out there in real life, so that you can sort yourself out more often.
I usually help people sort an issue within 2 – 4 sessions, but am always pleased to see people come back for the next stage of their journey, or to sort their latest misadventure!
Some of the life experience I bring to my work:
Believe it or not, I started life as a mechanical engineer, qualifying as both technician with an NZCE, and a bachelors degree at University of Canterbury. Since proving I can think with the old left brain, you will see that I have dedicated myself to teaching and movment in many forms.
I worked as a whitewater kayak instructor with the southern hemisphere’s most highly respected school of white water kayaking, the NZ Kayak School in Murchison, becoming senior instructor after 15 years of teaching “impossible” skills such as the eskimo roll, watching and helping develop and refine peoples movement and balance, and using NLP skills to help people past challenges, such as being terrified on the water.
I have a diploma of performing arts after 2 years full time at the National Acadamy of Singing and Dramatic Art. My most famous role was a cat, called, imaginatively, “Cat”, in a travelling theater-in-education production. You may not have heard of me.
I did work in an office for a while, once, as program manager at Landmark Education, who provide transformational personal development seminars.
More recently I have applied my teaching and movement skills to Argentinian Tango, which I have been invited to teach all around the country.
