Andrew was born just south west of London, where he has lived since back in the 20th Century. As well as founding Total Being he has been a film maker, creative director, artist, poet and dancer. Following many years’ meditation and the study of psychology, self-development and both eastern and western philosophical / spiritual systems, he arrived at a realisation of unlimited happiness, freedom, creativity and love. He has made it a life purpose to share this with others through the Total Being system of integrated Transformational Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Bodywork.Andrew’s longstanding practice of the meditative dance form 5 Rhythms also informs his intuitive and energetic approach to transformation, self expression and healing. Andrew believes that whatever change we wish to see in our relationships, communities, countries and planet is inseparable from the inner work (and play) we do. He holds diplomas in Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Bodywork and is available for one to one sessions in person or by Skype as well as work/playshops and talks.
