Are you stuck in a life situation and need help to untangle or ready to create a life you truly desire but not sure how to go about it? Are you looking for a transformation personally or professionally? Successful in some ways yet still feeling empty? Do you want to be DONE with antiquated and burdensome behaviours and patterns created from events many years ago? This is not a trifle question.

Many people wish for incremental improvements in their personal lives or careers but only a few realise that real change comes from shifting their own perspectives and ‘upgrading’ their belief systems and subsequent behaviours.

Michael’s  coaching incorporates an evidenced-based process of unpacking and then retooling/resourcing the way you see the world and how your thought processes will better serve you – ultimately, the thoughts you carry and how you relate to yourself and the world make all the difference to the quality of your life!

Having trained in various modalities and more recently in the science-based Positive Neuroplasticity, Michael has developed his own Life & Leadership Coaching programs and now works out of Melbourne, Byron Bay and online.
