Your Life...Version 2.0

If you’re struggling with middle age and what comes next, you’re in the right place.

Hello and welcome! I’m Michael, am 50 years old and working hard to define my own version of middle-aged life.

For twenty years, I worked as a civilian peacekeeper, in some of the world’s most challenging hotspots including Afghanistan, Kosovo and Eastern Ukraine. I had amazing adventures, several close calls and met all sorts of inspiring people. I found satisfaction solving conflicts, helping people, empowering disadvantaged men and women and inspiring my team members to reach their full potential.

Several years ago, alone, in a restaurant on a Saturday night, I had a life-changing conversation, with myself. I took stock of what I had, what was missing and the direction I was headed. I realized that I’d lost my buzz and it was time for a change.

I enrolled with one of the premier coaching schools in North America, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), and moved back to Vancouver to begin living life on my own terms and helping others to do the same. My values today are happiness, health, friendship and life balance. I learned that hitting the reset button on your life isn’t easy but far from impossible.

I became a coach because it energizes and motivates me to see clients succeed in life. As a “late bloomer” I can relate to people who’ve left things, well, late. I’m dedicated to helping my clients defeat the would have, should have and could haves that might forever haunt them.

Step into the Unknown

Being middle-aged isn’t easy, crisis or no crisis. Milestone birthdays, thoughts like I’m a failure and what’ve I really accomplished, can be crippling. Even the optimistic recognize the clock is ticking.

I guide my clients in taking their important first steps into the unknown. I help them reconnect with their powerful, capable and energized selves and define their ideal lives. We set achievable goals and use their fortified emotional intelligence, past accomplishments, skills and life experiences, as a realistic foundation for future success.

We use advanced coaching techniques to silence negative voices, crush limiting beliefs, and rewire patterns of self-defeating behaviour. We celebrate accomplishments together and collectively deal with anything that gets in the way.

My ultimate goal is to work myself out of a job and leave my clients with the valuable awareness, life skills and self-belief they need to coach themselves going forward.
