A Simple Truth

Within each one of us is an enormous power, activated and available at all times. It hides in plain sight, evident in the constant flow of thoughts, the turbulence of emotion, and the energy of physical action.

What distinguishes those that stall from those that thrive is whether that power is flowing in support of us, or undermining and interfering with our growth. Do our thoughts consistently allow positive action and insight? Or are they in conflict, leading us to procrastinate and restrict our vision of our lives? Are our emotions flowing, filling us with aliveness and passion? Or do we fear what we feel, suppress it, and lose our sense of what we value?

Simply put, the greater the inner conflict, the greater the anxiety and inconsistency in your life.

The Work

The task of coaching is to help you become aware of how you are currently functioning, what thoughts and behaviours are influencing and undermining you, and how we can turn these liabilities into assets that empower you. By realigning your inner world so that all is working positively and in harmony, we release the physical sense of resistance, allowing you to progress easily, leaving you feeling relieved, calm, focused and in flow.

"Meeting with Derek has been incredibly helpful for my personal health. From the first interaction I had with him, he was friendly, honest, and compassionate. Like meeting an old friend for tea, every session with Derek is insightful and enlightening. He offers accessible exercises, and great ways to problem solve in your daily life.
