I recommend that all new clients start with:

Time: 30 minutes

This is a FREE initial consultation – a friendly, informal, no obligation chat during which we will get to know each other and discuss how my services can be of help to you. This also provides a good opportunity for you to ask me any questions you may have before committing to a paid session.

Stress & Crisis Management Consultancy Sessions

The Quick Zen Man

Time: 30 minutes £40

Time: 45 minutes £45

This is a very popular, quick and solution-focused stress/crisis management/ troubleshooting Q&A consultancy session. Ask me any question that is currently troubling or worrying you or causing you sleepless nights, whether in your professional or personal life, and we will quickly but calmly brainstorm together and come up with the best possible solution/outcome for this particular moment in time. I will do my utmost to help, reassure and guide you in the right direction.

Life and Happiness Coaching Sessions

The Focused Zen Man

Time: 60 minutes £65 (plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

This is a general life and happiness coaching session during which we will talk about all aspects of your life (professional and personal) – where you are at present, your dreams and goals for the near and distant future, and what has been holding you back from living the life you always wanted and deserve. At the end of the session we will agree to a gentle, doable action and relaxation plan to help you move forward with confidence and enthusiasm in the best and most convenient way for you and your current circumstances.

The Zen Man Super Dad

Time: 60 minutes £65 (plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

This is a great, uplifting, helpful and reassuring session for all dads – whether dads-to-be, new dads, experienced dads, single dads, foster/adoptive dads or stepdads – who are doing their best but may still need a little help and guidance to discuss certain parenting issues and challenges in order to confidently navigate modern-day parenthood. As a former teacher/lecturer, I am here to support you on this wonderful but challenging path, which requires you to have a clear, positive and focused mindset and regular relaxation and me-time. During this session you will have the time to slow down, gather and share your thoughts and feelings, enabling us to agree to a gentle, yet effective action and relaxation plan to help you and also your child/children and family.

The Executive  Zen Man 

Time: 60 minutes £65 (plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

This is an ideal session for a busy executive, manager or business owner to address various professional and/or private issues that are causing daily stress and anxiety. It will also prove very helpful for those who are facing an important job interview, exam, presentation, difficult business negotiations/ deal closing or considering a career change.

 

This session can also help first-time managers and/or those who have a more introverted, shy personality and don’t feel particularly comfortable in social settings (such as business dinners/functions/events). Based on the popular Japanese concept of having a trusted personal coach and companion present, quietly and discreetly behind the scenes, during challenging professional times to help with stress, anxiety as well as for ongoing reassurance and guidance.

 

Please note: This session can be booked as a one-off or for longer periods of time. For this session, I am willing to travel both nationally and internationally (Post-COVID-19). Please contact me for more details.

The Stressed Zen Man 

Time: 60 minutes £65 (plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

Are things not going well at present? Perhaps you are going through a difficult personal situation – such as separation, divorce, bereavement, loss, job redundancy or illness – which would require you to adjust your current lifestyle either temporarily or permanently. Whatever the sad, difficult or challenging situation you are faced with, please don’t lose hope – contact me and let me help you to get you out of your dark man cave.

 

I fully understand that for many proud men, it is not easy to talk about such issues, but I urge you to think it over and allow me – quietly and discreetly – to help you on your path to recovery and a better, more hopeful future. I am also happy to assist you before, during and after hospital or rehab stays, as well as during your recovery time whether at home or in a private clinic. Having a friendly and trusted coach, companion and carer by your side (I'm a qualified and experienced carer) during such stressful times can make a significant difference to your emotional/mental well-being and help with the healing process.

 

Please note: This session can be booked as a one-off or for longer periods of time. For this session, I am willing to travel both nationally and internationally (Post-COVID-19). Please contact me for more details.

The Retired Zen Man 

Time: 60 minutes £65 (plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

Congratulations, you have made it! Whether you are about to retire or have already done so, it’s now time for you to take a well deserved break. However, you also need to think about the years ahead. As we live longer and in generally better health than a generation ago, today’s retirement doesn’t just mean comfy slippers and a TV anymore. Retirement gives you a chance to perhaps revisit a dream project you always wanted to start, to travel more, to engage in voluntary or social activities or even continue offering your knowledge and expertise to the younger generation or to a business on a part-time basis. Let’s talk and create a personal action plan that would take your retirement years to another level, while at the same time addressing any issues that might limit your and your family’s plans such as health or financial concerns.

The Weekend Zen Man 

Time: 2 hours £150 (120 minutes plus a 15 minute complimentary follow-up telephone call a few days after the session to see how you are doing and if you require any additional help)

This is a lovely, relaxing session for those who are too busy and too tired during the week to focus on their self-development and self-care and wish to do so during a less stressful time of the week. The session includes:

  • 60 minutes: The Focused Zen Man Session (or any session of your choice).

  • 60 minutes: Stress assessment and a bespoke, holistic relaxation/ wellbeing plan.
