Why choose coaching?
People choose coaching because they desire some form of change and feel stuck in one or more areas of their lives. I help individuals of all ages gain clarity on how to effect positive and lasting change.
Career and life transitions
In person or online
I work with clients in person and online using Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.

Existential, positive psychology and somatic mindfulness coaching.
Existential coaching is based on the belief that we all experience some anxiety due to the uncertainties of life and it can help in the quest for meaning and purpose.
Positive psychology coaching aims to improve emotional wellbeing by identifying your strengths and helping you utilise them in better ways.
The mind-body connection tends to be neglected in talking therapies, the work being done at a "head" level only. I aim to help clients increase somatic awareness.
Coaching vs therapy
A frequently asked question is: What is the difference between a coach and a counsellor or psychotherapist?
A general answer to this question is that while therapy tends to focus on analysing the past, coaching helps you get from where you are to where you want to be. My person-centred approach, however, allows for some deeper self-exploration, if and when needed.

Experience and training
I've been running a wellbeing practice since 2008. I trained as a coach in London in 2016-17 and previously as a yoga and holistic therapist in the UK and in Asia. Before training in mind-body work, I did translation and teaching work. My lifelong background in music performance, and my struggle with stage fright, made me aware of the mind-body connection and the importance of stress management.
