I am a Personal Development Consultant, Life Coach, Author and Speaker. My life story, which I wish to share with you for your potential benefit, upliftment, motivation and inspiration, embraces many years of alcohol abuse and addiction and aspects of life which enabled me to persevere through the extremes of torment and joy to my current state of fulfilling living and ongoing recovery.
My passion as a Self-Leadeship Consultant is to be in conversation with anyone who has, or wishes to develop, an approach to life which is foundationally personal growth-oriented, positive and optimistic. While my adult life experience has essentially been affected by alcohol abuse and addiction, I believe that all my "wandering" and learning can be of benefit to each and everyone, with no distinctions or categorisation whatsoever.
In taking this journey with you, the invitation is for us to listen to each other and learn from each other. As such, please read my blogs, comment and share your experience and contact me if you need a Life Coach and my Self-Leadeship Consulting Services.

Listening is a much under-utilised and under-appreciated form of therapy. Often, the very best gift we can offer a person in some form of distress — whether physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual — is listening. A special type of listening: empathic and confidential. Many people's cries of despair go unheeded, either because they remain unexpressed or because they are not effectively listened to.
Relatively recent research has shown that the heart has its own brain, neurologically speaking, and it would seem to me that we need to listen to our hearts more, rather than focusing totally on our minds. We would do well to bring our minds to our hearts as it were.
The heart has often been described in terms of and associated with love. This now appears to be literally true as well. Our heart is possibly the seat of our emotions and our emotions play a massive role in our lives. “Its all in the mind?.” No, indeed, the heart is intrinsically involved as well. Love is indubitably powerful. If love is located in the heart, if we listen to our heart more and enact on what we hear and learn, we shall surely be living better lives, towards ourselves and others.
