Who am I? – thought you’d like to know!

Let me tell you a little about myself. I am English but for many years I lived in Izmir (Western Turkey) and now live in the UK and go back to Turkey regularly. I am married with a son Daniel and a daughter Ebru. My son Daniel also has a keen interest in computers and one day I hope he will help me out in running this site. I have worked in Electronics, Sales, and Teaching. I am now a professionally qualified Life Coach and University Tutor with a lot of life experience to share with you. I have taught at Durham University, the University of Leicester and at Izmir University of Economics.

I have lived in Australia, England, Italy and Turkey and moved around a lot especially when I was 5-11 years old. This created a number of problems even at that young age. I speak Italian, Spanish and Turkish. I have overcome low self esteem, inferiority, depression and much more in my life and as a result of my experiences felt that I could help others overcome and defeat these debilitating problems. In 1994 I moved to Turkey from England having married two years earlier with a five month old baby boy. That year I also took my final exams at University. The culture shock I have faced and change in
lifestyle have presented real challenges and difficulties. I now live in the UK although I do spend a lot of time in Turkey too.

Life constantly provides you with opportunities to improve yourself and I believe that problems such as self esteem and lack of confidence are at the heart of your ability to help yourself grow. Everyone needs help and I hope that this website can help you take steps to help yourself by offering you the information you need to decide what to do next.
