About me

If you’ve landed here looking for my laser cut products, please visit Dragon Powered, my laser cutting site.

If you’re looking for my paper houses, they are on my Paper Houses page.

I love to show people how to transform themselves, to set themselves free of family & society expectations, and search for what really brings them to life.

I am training to be an empathic coach and already offer “connection coaching” to alcoholics & addicts. Find out more about that at Positive Sobriety.

My own journey into self freedom began in the mid 1980s when I was in my early 30s. From an unpromising start in an archetypal repressed English family, I’ve been through addiction and dreadful loneliness into recovery and deep connection with myself and others. It’s been a bit hit and miss at times, I’ve followed some blind alleys and, if I’d known the route, it needn’t have taken anything like as long. I’d love to share some of what I’ve learnt with others who are looking for deeper meaning for themselves and rewarding connection with life itself.

From dull grey numbness and emotional illiteracy, I have developed a rich and colourful emotional life. I’ve learnt the language to describe my emotional life and techniques to explore it.

I’m a humanist and my practice is humanist, I don’t have and don’t want a spiritual life — I want a human life, to become as completely human as I can in the time available to me.

I place a high value on living from evidence based systems and I don’t rely on faith whether in a “higher power” or in unproven “alternative” medicine.

I’ve been closely involved with Non-Violent Communication  (NVC) since 2012 and regularly attend practice groups, retreats and camps.

I love to walk in the countryside around my home in south west Wales and I’m nourished by deep and honest conversations with trusted friends.

I live and work in Pembrokeshire, south west Wales.

In my “other” life, I’m an artist, craftsman & maker. You can find out about my laser cut work at Dragon Powered.
