How I do it

How do I do what I do?Working with what's present

In a sentence, I facilitate you – as a group or as an individual – by working with what’s present.  This will most likely be a mix of your conscious needs and aspirations, and your unconscious blockages and ‘interference’.

Everything I offer is intended to be a rich self-learning experience – something that transforms and is remembered in your body as well as mind.  Most of what of what I do is based on listening and facilitating action learning – i.e. learning my doing, working on active challenges and projects.

The power of myth and metaphor

Sword in the StoneMy work also draws on imagination, metaphor and storytelling.  Telling stories is part of our human nature.  It transcends ages, cultures and disciplines.  It has always been a powerful vehicle for communication and learning; the same applies today.

As you will notice, I like to combine ancient wisdom and modern day stories to both educate and entertain.

To paraphrase Joseph Campbell: “Myths are clues to the potentialities of human life.”

Likewise, I am always looking to combine the development tools and technologies of 21st Century thought leaders to my own ideas and intuition.  Inspired by the likes of Catherine McCoun, Deepak Chopra, Richard Barrett, Paulho Coelho and Carole Pearson, clients are guided through “5 Alchemical Practices for Conscious Leadership” – key steps to your becoming a responsible leader of inspiring action, enabling you to transform your base energies (where and who you are) into “gold” (where and who you aspire to be).

Drawing more directly on the inspiration, appeal and endurance of Arthurian Legend, below are the 5 core modules or ‘chapters’ to you “Living your Legacy & Legend.”

All of my approaches are adaptable to working with individuals and/or small facilitated groups.

Chapter 1:

  • create and energise your vision
  • identify the key “four obstacles” to your ‘Personal Legend’
  • define your own model and strategy for personal development and performance improvement working with your body, mind and spirit to align the ego, soul and self
  • this module is also inspired by Paulo Coelho’s international best-selling book The Alchemist, exploring the themes of your dreams, loves, fears and joy, all through the ownership of your Personal Legend
