“Yesterday, I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today, I am wise, so I am changing myself.” Rumi
Most people know me as...
the doctor who went from hospital medic to advisor to the United Nations. The one who delivered babies in a war zone, was part of a pandemic response team and spoke at the WHO. And then left it all behind...
What most people don’t know about me...
My quarter-life crisis.
Everything looked great.
But inside something was missing.
I was lost spiritually.
It took me a few years to understand what was happening and a couple more to figure out what to do about it.
But one day, I bumped into someone in a lift and everything changed.
I finally started to understand who I really was and what I was here to do beyond anything I ever expected.
One day, I found myself having one conversation after another helping other service-driven professionals break free of their feelings of being lost and confused. I realised I could guide them so that they didn't have to spend years showing up to work feeling empty inside, drained from their jobs or anxious at night wondering what it's all for.
Today, I live in service of those who want to be free of systems and work cultures that feel toxic or simply misaligned. They're the hard working doctors, professionals and leaders who care - too much sometimes - are hidden creative and have a hope of something better.
People contact me when...
they're unsure what to do next in their career and they've tried a lot of other things. They have a sense that something else is possible for them. But they feel stuck and don't know what to do next. They doubt themselves and whether their hopes are realistic. In a world where most people seek the safety of conventional success, they see something bigger and want to be true to themselves.
my home in a quiet part of London, meaningful conversations and the occasional horse riding in the woods. My family and friends know that my biggest weakness is chocolate.
One of my favourite quotes:
There's no such thing as time management.
It's choice management.
If you know what it's like to have achieved so much but feel there must be another way of being, and you're ready for a deep journey of self-discovery, we should talk.
