“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”                                                        Carl Rogers

At a time in my life when I felt personally and professionally stuck, a conversation with a life coach helped me radically to rethink my approach and set me on the liberating journey described in my book Urban Worrier: Adventures in the Lost Art of Letting Go.

Nearly a decade later, I am delighted to be able to offer coaching myself, with a particular passion for the areas in which I am most experienced:

  • mid-life transition
  • spiritual searching
  • men’s issues & fatherhood
  • parenting & adoption
  • career transition
  • writing and the creative process.


My coaching style is supportive and conversational rather than directive. I have discovered that approaching even the most troublesome situations with curiosity and understanding can free us up to move forward in unexpected ways.

Whatever your situation, we will work together to explore your particular needs and goals in a time-frame that works for you, and regularly review our progress.

Sessions are either in Edinburgh in person (indoors or outdoors as you prefer), or online using Skype or similar technology from anywhere in the world. Anything we share is confidential.


My qualifications for this work include a foundation course in process-oriented psychology, various leadership development training modules with the Mankind Project, and currently a Diploma in Transformational Coaching, accredited by the International Coach Federation and Association for Coaching (due to complete in 2017).


A first exploratory hour-long session is free, and subsequent sessions are currently available for a reduced rate of £30 while I build up the requisite coaching experience to complete my accredited diploma.

If you are interested in booking coaching with me, or simply want more information, please drop me an email and we’ll see what’s possible.
