MY JOURNEY

The Making of the Mojo Man

My background is in the performing arts. I trained as an actor at East 15 Acting School back in the 1990's and embarked on a fulfilling 20 year career as an actor and singer. No fame and definitely no fortune, but lots of fun and wonderful experiences. Then in the mid 2000's I crashed. Life got to me.  Every resting moment I felt guilty as I wasn't working. Every moment I was working I felt I should be working harder to better provide for my young family. Happiness became an extravagance I didn't feel I deserved. I had lost touch with what made me, me. My darkest day came in spring 2012, but as the saying goes, it's always darkest before the dawn. After years of trying to be strong and getting crushed under the weight of my own expectation, I reached out for help. That was the most important decision I have ever made.  It was never a promise of fame and fortune that drew me to a career in the arts, but rather making people happy and in turn, making myself happy. The happy me is the best and most productive me. Why did I become a coach?  Exactly the same reasons that I became an actor. I love and am fascinated by people. I derive more pleasure from seeing people achieve what they didn't think they were able to than just about anything else. Now I use many of the skills I developed at drama school and throughout my career, to help people smile again. A secure life and a happy life are not mutually exclusive, we can have both and deserve both, but sometimes we need a little help along the way. If this sounds like you, give me a ring. I'd be delighted to hear from you.
