I take my practise very seriously and with the rapid developments in the scientific data behind neuroscience I am forever studying and evolving my programme. Nevertheless, I feel it is a culmination of my background, corporate career and 20 years of coaching experience that has enabled me to create my own successful programme, Mental State Mastery. It is a programme that is essential for anyone who wants to create the life they want to live.”

I feel it is appropriate to share my own background and personal journey, beyond my experience and qualifications, so that anyone who wants to commit to this level of coaching understands why I developed this programme and why it works.

My mother died suddenly and totally unexpectedly of flu when she was 39 and I had just turned 4. My wonderful father remarried just 6 months after that. I had a very difficult childhood and just as I was moving into adolescence my sister was murdered and we were thrust into an international, political mystery that changed our lives forever. We endured years of threat, intimidation and media intrusion that tore our lives apart. My sister’s body has never been found. My younger brother turned to heroin and by age 20 ended up in prison. He died after a lifetime of drug abuse at 44.

I believe that the trauma we endured as a family has played a huge part in my success as a neuroscience coach because while my childhood was challenging and not ordinary at all, it has helped shape the strong, resilient and contented person I am today. My father’s advice was that you have to work on yourself and take responsibility for every aspect of your life. His words have supported me throughout my life and have influenced my approach to coaching. My father’s legacy lives on – he was an extraordinary man.
