Why choose coaching?
People choose coaching because they desire some form of change and feel stuck or out of alignment with who they truly are. I help individuals of all ages and from all walks of life gain clarity on how to effect positive and lasting change.
Career and life transitions
In person or online
I work with clients in person in London and with people based around the world using Skype, FaceTime and 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. In my approach, 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 psychotherapy 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 as a coach and therapist, I did translation and teaching work. My background in music performance, and my struggle with stage fright, made me aware of the mind-body connection and the importance of stress management.
