Do you want to know who you really are? If you do, you’ve come to the right place.

You will learn to truly know and transform your story as the bigger picture of your life is revealed.
By the time you’ve finished your journey with me, you will own your story, rather than your story owning you. You will have the awareness and tools to consciously embody your potential.
I share insights and simple tools for daily life. You can calmly live your life with an open heart, a quiet mind and feet firmly on the ground.

Kenny is the man’s man who gets to the heart of a guy’s issues. He talks frankly and open-heartedly to rebuild broken spirits and to give men the space they need not to hide their fears with a smokescreen “Wallace-type smile in front of the rage” but to go through the darkness. His humorous, easy spirit provides an empathetic place for men of all ages to open up to this “shadow” self that (otherwise) leads to despair.

Personal Development for Personal Trainers
I’m excited to announce that I’ll soon be running live workshops and also an online mastermind group specifically for personal trainers.
The focus will be on the psychological issues involved with being a personal trainer and how those issues affect your personal wellbeing and your business.
Participants will gain:
- greater awareness and understanding of the issues, as well as
- tips and strategies for dealing with them,
so that they can become better, more successful personal trainers and happier people.
To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, I’m doing my bit to help women by helping men to better understand women, so that we can all have better relationships and happier lives. Menstruation and menopause are things that women experience and men don’t, and therefore it can be difficult for some men to understand and relate to women around those things. That’s why I’ve asked Christine Page to write this guest blog to give us men some advice about this.
As a doctor and counsellor for over 40 years, I’ve been privileged to share intimacies with thousands of women around the world.
My husband Leland says: there’s nothing more beautiful in the Universe than a woman in her power. I’ve met many men who echo this sentiment; they just want to know how to serve the females in their lives. But when asked what they want, their women often reply: if you love me, you should know!
Please, men, don’t walk away or stop asking. Women embody a collective amnesia, following the suppression of all things feminine some 3500 years ago. This has left us with few role models today who express the qualities of a fully empowered and beautiful woman.read more
When people discover that they have cancer, their initial reaction is typically “I’m going to die!” You can often see those same words written in the eyes of their loved ones; and it’s true. Life will never be the same again.
My take is not to hand power over, but to use a person’s energy to feel their experience, get the message that cancer wants to give them, and then allow cancer to pass. Thank the messenger for doing its job, then let it go.
It’s not about “think positive then everything will be okay.” It’s more about focusing on what you want to grow, rather than on what you want to go. How do you want life to be on the other side of this? What is life trying to tell you? What needs to die in order for you to be who you really are and live a truer life?read more
Here are the top ten things that surprised me about ageing:
I can get away with flirting, challenging, questioning, laying boundaries, being cheeky and giving compliments like I’d never imagined! I wonder whether it’s my tone, my attitude, or that I’m no longer seen as a horny young man just trying to get a leg over, or whether it’s my new found mature confidence. Whatever it is, I love it! I make eye contact, lower my voice, take my time, tilt my head downwards slightly while my eyeballs look up, and I raise an eyebrow – it works a treat!
Tip: Take a breath, take a chance, hold the space and play – lovingly.
I thought my flossing technique had improved because I could feel more between my teeth. It turned out to be receding gums!
Tip: Take care of your gums and teeth, and go to the dentist to check for gum disease. Floss and brush twice a day and if you smoke – stop it!read more
There are two types of people: those who enjoy the annual Christmas family gathering and those who don’t. For some people, Christmas with the family is more like a nightmare than a joyous reunion.
Unfortunately, we don’t all get along with every member of our family. Sometimes there’s outright hostility, but more often than not, it’s just an underlying, unspoken tension. What can you do? Often alcohol is used to numb the uncomfortable feelings and jollify, but it can cause more problems than it fixes because it loosens tongues, dissolves the polite civility and unshackles the underlying resentments.
The type of drama that ensues depends upon the family dynamics. At one end of the spectrum, everyone yells at each other and it feels like World War III has broken out. Another scenario resembles a schoolyard bully beating up the sensitive kids, or what’s more socially acceptable is the sensitive ‘victims’ passive-aggressively doing the ‘beating up’ through control and conversational minefields.read more
