If you want a more formal introduction to my work history and qualifications scroll down the page or CLICK HERE!
I’m in my late 50’s, with a wife and two kids (I often say to people I got a daughter for my 50th birthday!) plus I have a son in his twenties, from
my first marriage.
It’s been a long and arduous path learning about relating. My journey on the path of relationships has covered the whole emotional rainbow!
The highs have been filled with love, light, joy and ecstatic pleasure. While the lows have been many – often with deep dark submersion’s into the most hidden, hideous, corners of my psyche – revealing such grief and depths of despair, that often it felt like I would not come back.
Starting from a place of being an angry, numb, cut-off, disconnected & scared young man. I’ve travelled most relationship options there are;
I’ve been single and painfully lonely. Single and loving it. I’ve lived with a few women, in committed relationships. Experienced serial monogamy, ‘living in sin’, marriage, separated, divorced – have been a separated dad for the past 17 years.
Jumped into polyamory for nearly 4 years, with a nearly one year journey in celibacy, in the midst.
Nowadays, I’ve been with my partner for over 14 years and we have two children together. Living life being a dad again, in my 50’s.
It’s been quite a journey!
When I look back on ‘who I used to be in relationship’ — I wonder that I had any relationships at all. As I used to be very dysfunctional, needy, dishonest with myself and partners, and emotionally numb & cut off.
One of the things I’ve learned is it’s never too late to begin, or re-start the journey in learning more about being in successful in relationships. The amazing thing about relationships is, they give us such a massive opportunity to learn about ourselves.
