Hey <<First Name>> I’ve moved!It’s been a trip! And boy did I underestimate how much of a ball ache it would be, how much it would add to my to-do list, and how little time Leah would leave us to unpack! But

Hey ! It’s time to finally kick off this exciting experiment that I’ve been teasing for some time now. (In case you missed it: shorter & more frequent Nuggets*).  See, back in 2018 these Nuggets started as short and tasty little

Hey ! We’re back on track!! Yay 🙂 Not without some excellent help though, that is. I gotta say, babies do lead to all sorts of delays. That part of the narrative is certainly spot on! So first of all, a big

Hey ! As you’d expect, becoming a dad has led to a few new insights. For instance, there’s the fact that yes, I tend to create a tonne of projects (a “project-salad” as my new COO Martin likes to call it),

Oh my, what a summer it’s been! I do a lot of “checking-in” as part of a dozen monthly supervision groups and a clear theme has been emerging across most of them: Stretch! It seems that part of what the pandemic caused

  There are two special events I wanted to make you aware of coming up in June and July. If you know someone who you think would benefit from learning about the existential coaching landscape, I’d really appreciate you passing

I’m late. Well not that anybody notices or necessarily even cares about how regularly these Nuggets find their way into the inboxes of the world, but it did matter to me. I had made a promise that every last Friday of

I want to start these nuggets with a pie chart. Because every March since 2005 I’ve been thinking about the day my friend Max showed it to me and until just now I could never find it again. Okay well,

I hope you’re well! The 2nd waves are easing off in most places and I can feel both, a sense of collective hope as some countries have made great progress with their vaccine rollouts, and also a real lockdown fatigue as

First of all: whether you’re celebrating Christmas or not, whether you were able to spend this time with family and loved ones or you were shielding (them), from the bottom of my heart I wish that you’ve had some time

I’ve just realized that my laptop refused to switch over from UK to French time. That means you’re gonna have to jump straight in without a considered, witty and inspiring intro, which I usually write at the end. Our AirBnB

You know I’m one for limited promotion. I do care about getting people to go that one step deeper with their thinking. That’s why for some time I’ve been “Talking about Coaching” in the form of my podcast (both solo and together with

A lot has happened this month so I’ve got a few chunky nuggets for you. And since in comparison with the world it seems odd to tell you about the exciting stuff that’s been brewing in my kitchen I want
