Slow down and explore the possibilities

Step away from the busyness and disturbances of everyday life and rest. There are coaching options to suit your needs.

A range of self-paced courses guide you to identify how you want life to look, overcome challenges, and achieve meaningful goals in accordance with your sensitive temperament.

Our group sessions, conversations, and workshops provide opportunities to engage with the hive mind and get fresh perspectives on familiar topics.

The One-to-One program includes personalised calls with Andy alongside materials for use between sessions to deepen your relationship with your creative spirit, let go of unhelpful voices, and accomplish your aims on YOUR terms and in YOUR way.

Fireside Coaching

Coaching is a conversation that focuses on a challenge, vision, or goal you want to address. It can help you untangle thoughts, create a plan, and make progress on the things that matter most. There are two ways of working with me.

Fireside Courses

There are three main courses that we run through The Haven. There are also several mini-courses that help you explore particular themes, topics, and challenges related to helping your high sensitive nervous system work for you and the things that matter most.

Courses Deep Dive

The Return to Serenity Island is an immersive self-paced course, designed to take you on a journey back to what truly matter. It uses maps, narrative meditations, and a process of self-discovery to help you fall in love with life's possibilities.

In Face The Wall, we turn the wall(s) that are currently casting a shadow over your life into a memorial stronghold…another chapter in your story of becoming. And turn them from a looming present obstacle into an inspiring future tale.


Photoyoga For Your Mind encourages creative awareness and self-knowledge through photography. It will help you recognise the emotions, stories and beliefs through the photos you take. This is about using photography to stimulate mindfulness and observation, not technical perfection. It makes no difference whether you are an experienced photographer or you're playing with the camera on your phone.
