He has created training programmes for coaches (and organisations) so they can work to help people rebuild their lives or, better still, not have such difficult breakdowns in the first place. He has also created a new coaching model based on human meaning (Meaning Centred Coaching MCC) which is at the heart of the programmes.
This work has taken him to many different parts of the planet from Vietnam to the US to Africa and Europe.
A few years ago Anthony realised that the issue of mental health, ecological awareness and the experience of childhood were all interlinked. And we live in incredibly volatile and fast changing times.
His mind is now on the future, not only for his children, as he says, but for all of us, and he adds: “Climate change is an overriding issue; one that trumps all others and offers us some of the greatest challenges of modern times and with it’s promise of a worldwide new energy economy it contains the potential for a new enlightened order and sustainable prosperity.
To get there we need to embrace change and disruption and most important of all find ways to free our children from the educational relic that is the current educational system.
With our own children we have found a way of supporting children to grow and thrive and be happier than many children are able to be. We based this on what most people consider the opposites of what we are told we ought to do with children. We wrote a book for parents and educators to share our journey and ideas, JUMP, FALL, FLY.”
