Work

Updated: Jul 6

I started working for a living... a very humble living back then... on June 26th 1972... since then... I have learned a lot... earned a lot... laughed a lot... and cried a lot... and it all leaves me here... now... describing my somatic coaching and facilitation work... so here we go.


My training has always been an ongoing process… and still is.


Formally, I have trained with Newcastle University UK, the Sirolli Institute based in California, the Coaching Academy based in the UK and The Somatic Coaching School based in London.


More informally... many others have helped me develop my own embodied self awareness skills… including teachers… monks… wayward Taoists... artists… dancers… musicians… writers… film makers… poets… lovers… drug addicts… homeless people… radicals… lost souls and outright queered and troubled weirdoes… otherwise known as my loved and loving friends.

Over the past 20 years in this coaching role I have worked with businesses that turn over lots of money, businesses that turn over very little, people who want to generate an income from their hobby, social enterprises, charities, community interest companies, activist groups… and many individuals.


The basic common factor shared by all those I work with… is that they are looking for ways to live with increased self awareness.


Quite often… the project people want to work on… is their own ability to define what it is they have to offer the world… and how they may deliver that with integrity… with an open heart… with honesty… and a sense of commitment and connection to their principles.


Many of the people I work with, are looking for ways to manage their own understanding around relationships… with family… friends… work colleagues… customers... with themselves.


We are relational beings… all working through the difficulties around being ourselves while being considerate of others.


It seems there is a fine line between being myself… being selfish… and losing myself in the service of the needs of others.

My work aims to help people walk that fine line with grace and the understanding that it is ok to fall occasionally… as long as we do that with sufficient embodied awareness to pick ourselves up… recover… repair… adapt and learn.


My own aims are to spend as much time as possible feeling relaxed and confident… and to engage with myself and others in relationships that add meaning and fulfilment to my life.


Thanks for your attention if you have read this far.


Thisness is my work.


Meeting new people… hearing new stories… learning from listening… and developing my own joy and wonder in the diversity within this human and more than human species… keeps me alive and smiling… so if you feel you have something that needs sharing… let me know.
