About The Edge Coaching & Development
I provide high quality coaching, some therapy and personal development using NLP and a variety of other sources from Western and Eastern approaches to development. This includes my time in Peru with the teachers and shamans from the Q’ero Indians who live in the high Andes Mountains, and with a number of other spiritual teachers around the world. My practice draws the various traditions and techniques together to create an Integral Life Practice to support my clients to live mindful, fulfilled lives. Through my business, the edge – coaching & development, as well as my work with individual clients I also work with large public sector organisations and small businesses – always with the focus on learning, development and growth.
