The uniquely comprehensive Unitive® approach to personal and professional self-development has developed into its present form as a result of my work in the field of human potential. After originally qualifying as a pharmaceutical chemist at London University and a member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, I became increasingly concerned over the widespread use of psychotropic, mind-changing drugs to modify and alter the way people thought, felt and acted. This led me to search for a radically different, humanistic approach that would allow individuals to regain responsibility for changes in their own lives, rather than a continuing dependence on medication to deal with anxiety and depression during the day and inadequate sleep patterns at night.
In the early 1980’s, after obtaining a master’s degree in phenomenological psychology at Goddard College in Vermont, USA, I re-located to Utrecht, in the Netherlands, in order to work with the leading psychologist in the new field, Dr. Jay Stattman, the principal of the Institute of Unitive Psychology, who supervised my PhD thesis. I subsequently became a faculty member at the Institute, working with Dr. Stattman in setting up human potential courses, seminars and training facilities all over Europe.
Since that time, I have worked in the UK, Europe and the USA as a professional agent of change with many international companies and a wide range of institutions. My clientele has included media personalities, entrepreneurs and many professionals in the business and corporate world, media and the arts. I am often quoted in the national quality press as a recognised authority on personal and business coaching and have appeared on BBC TV’s ‘Omnibus’ series, Channel 4 TV, ITV1 and BBC Radio 4.
My unique approach to personal and professional development is now protected from plaguarism by the recent world-wide registration of the Unitive® trading name, with our website unitivecoaching.com as its dedicated flagship. Our venue, being based in central London, is accessible for many people all over the world, enabling us to provide a wide range of products and services both to UK and international clients, including self-awareness courses, small-group personal development workshops and publications, one-to-one tuition, and publications.
I work on a one-to-one basis, preferably face-to-face in my central London venue. Coaching over Skype or on the phone is also available, particularly for clients further away and for international clients.
Each session is stand-alone and there is no commitment to a set number of ongoing sessions. Each face-to-face session is 90 minutes long and those on Skype or over the phone are usually 60 minutes.
