It's not the mountain we conquer but ourselves...

Sir Edmund Hillary

Passionate About Inspiring Others

I've always had an insatiable interest in personal development and what makes people tick - why do we do the things we do, even when some of those things can bring us unhappiness and dissatisfaction? In my quest for learning and answering these questions I became a counsellor and coach with the aim of helping and guiding people to experience a higher quality of life, love, joy, satisfaction and happiness. You see I truly believe that we can all live an engaged and inspired life right now by having the best mindset, the best strategies and the best tools to enable and aid us on our life's journey


My Personal Life Philosophy is:

Live an Engaged, Inspired life. Create massive change. Live, Love, Learn & Matter. Live a vital, healthy life.

To be the person I need to be to become the person I want to be.

To be a guide for those who are finding their way, to be a counsellor for those in their time of need, to coach you to Greater Heights so we can all live the life we desire!

As a Life Coach, Counsellor, Personal Trainer, Entrepreneur, Photographer, Writer, musician, Trekker, Husband, Dad and much more, I have a wealth of life experiences to draw on and learn from and one of the greatest lessons I have learned is You are not alone. There is always someone who will help and support you when you need it the most, you just have to ask! Taking that first step to ask for help is the beginning of a new chapter in your life's story, the start of an incredible journey towards a fulfilled life and one of the best decisions you will make!

The question to ask yourself now is: If not now, When?


During my numerous trips to Nepal, trekking through the incredible Himalayan mountains I realized there was a far deeper journey going on inside me, it was a perfect time to dive deep inside and embark of a wonderful journey of self discovery. What made trekking in Nepal such an amazing inner experience? It is a combination of being wonderfully isolated in the mountains, free from the daily distractions that can plague us "back home", the silence and solitude, the physical and mental challenge of the trek and of course being totally immersed in nature at it's stunning best!

So I decided this was an experience worth sharing with you, and I have designed a trek that will take you through the remote mountains of Nepal's Annapurna or Everest regions whilst we dive deep inside and learn about emotional intelligence and how to design the life we desire. 

Learn the skills to enable you to experience more love, happiness, joy, abundance and success. Learn what's been holding you back and how to break through these barriers, how to let go. 

Get clarity on what you really want for yourself, your life, your family and your relationships all whilst trekking in one of the most stunning places on earth.


"Before coaching I was feeling depressed detached, lost, and insecure about who I was and what I wanted from life.  I simply did not love myself.  I had no concept of boundaries or what they were.  I was living each day with the idea of just going with the flow, but with very little motivation to try to connect with people. I felt stuck and didn’t know how to move forward.  My confidence was very low and I had given up on connecting with people out of fear of not being good enough and not wanting to get hurt in relationships.   (Honestly, I do not even think I knew the things I enjoyed because I was constantly living for other people.)   

The main things I have achieved from my coaching experience with David:  I LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!! I SERIOUSLY DO NOT THINK I HAVE EVER LOVED MYSELF. We started with basic things like learning how to set boundaries which was probably one of the biggest things that has helped me.  I learned to make decisions based on my values.  I learned to show up, even when I didn’t think I wanted to.  I learned to motivate myself by doing the things that I enjoyed but didn’t have the confidence to do. We went over exercises to help me with not feeling stuck.  I developed the confidence to do things I’ve always wanted to do and I quit being stuck ‘in my head” and over thinking.  I changed from living a life of going with the flow and started planning a future based on living intentionally.  My entire philosophy of how I lived totally changed!!!   I trust my intuition now and live with intent… not just in relationships but with everything.   I’ve learned to let go of things that are not good for me and pursue things that are helping me with my goals.


How do I feel now?   Confident!!!!   I’m a totally different person.  I live with intent, I’m much more confident in my relationships…not just significant others but with everyone.  I’ve joined groups with people who enjoy the same activities that l enjoy. I’m hiking, biking, camping, travelling, kayaking and doing the things I love with a great group of adventuresome friends.   I’ve made a ton of friends, got rid of a few as well.  I’m learning to engage and show up even when I think I don’t want to.  I’ve learned so much, it’s literally impossible to go back to the person I use to be.  The good thing is, it keeps getting better.  I LOVE MYSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME!  That is the biggest thing for me and I can finally say it with confidence".   Dana.  USA

"David's coaching was the best decision I made to take my business forward. He taught me to think outside the box and to listen to my heart. My work with David helped me by opening up new ways of communicating and this has changed the way I think and interact with people. David is so passionate about what he teaches. I found that I was able to move forward quickly. He helped me to see what was holding me back and to be the best version of myself! Inspirational teaching!"   Hazel Mrozek.  U.K.

"I Just want to say, it's incredible how fast your life can change with this work. Keep inspiring people David!"  Vanessa
