Self-Reflection and Self-Awareness - in life and in writing

I have been working in the Adult Learning and Career Development sectors for more than 12 years, supporting people to grow and develop both personally and professionally. I have also worked in counselling settings with young people, adults and couples, as well as managing a mentoring project and undertaking academic proof-reading, and all these experiences inform my methods now. I blend a person-centred focus with a practical and structured approach to good effect. I believe that professional development goes hand-in-hand with increased understanding of self and others, also known as emotional intelligence. Understanding and valuing your own strengths and vulnerabilities helps you communicate more strongly and create more honest, productive relationships, both at home and at work, and can impact on your ability to make a convincing argument in written form as well. I am happy to meet you at your home, at my home or at another location convenient to us both, or we can work via webcam. I normally prepare tasks or concepts to consider between meetings, and always tailor the sessions to what you most need or want to get out of them. If you want a simple listening ear, that is fine - if you want someone to create a schedule to help you stick to goals, I can do that. We can decide between us what might best help you get where you want to in your life or career. The availability in the calendar below is just a guide, I can work around your schedule, so please feel free to ask about specific days or times.

About Me

I have had a fortunate career path that has taken me in a lot of different directions, all of which have added to the skills and knowledge I use now in supporting people with personal and professional development. I emigrated from the US to the UK in 1995 and have made my home mainly in Edinburgh since then, with two years in Bradford Yorkshire. I currently work across the central belt of Scotland, primarily as an Independent Practice Teacher, Assessor and Supervisor, with a bit of Family Group Decision Making work as well. Self-employment, and the ability to define my job as opportunities arise, suits me well! I have also previously been a family support worker, a mentoring project coordinator and a counsellor, also working for a time as a guard on the trains, which got me around a bit. You can say I am a Jack(ie) of All Trades in some ways, but over the years I have gained a level of expertise in one thing - personal development, and the journey of change. I work creatively, intuitively and sensitively to adapt to the needs of the person or people I am working with, let me know if you have an idea to explore!

Education

BA Anthropology (University of Utah), PGDip Forensic Anthropology (Bradford University), PGCert Counselling (Edinburgh University), Practice Teaching Award (SSSC Learning Network East), SVQ III Children and Young People (Stevenson College), Family Group Decision Making (KALM Solutions)

Experience / Qualifications

Training or research in: evaluation methods, evidence-based practice, presentation skills, group work and group dynanmics, Advocacy - as as you can see from the photo below, I was nominated for Scottish Association of Social Workers Practice Teacher of the Year award! I have been an Assessor to people working towards the Practice Teaching Award, a University Tutor and also undertaken Professional Supervision and Career Mentoring.
I can offer beginner's lessons in piano and keyboard to adults or children, this includes both playing and reading music - happy to work with anyone who is keen to learn to play the keyboard or read musical notation! Normally this will be for one lesson per week, with clear direction for practice at home between lessons given - the more you play the quicker you learn (and the more nimble your fingers become!). I can offer lessons in my home in the Meadowbank area of Edinburgh, or travel to you if you have a piano at home. I can also work around your schedule - the availability below is just an illustration, so please feel free to ask about other times or days.

Do you want to take your mind and body to the next level? Biohacking is about increasing health & performance for mind and body. After you complete this workshop you will be able to: Increase your brain power and mental clarity. Heal faster and gain more energy. Super charge your mindset for success.

Slows down the aging process so you look and feel younger and healthier. You will learn how and why your body/mind works the way it does and why its so hard to be healthy, and how to bend this to your advantage. Testimonials: Entering the workshop, I felt my health and productivity were ok and I wanted more out of life. and there I had my mind blown about the possibilities of biohacking. Realising that my body is addicted to sugars 'even though I'm not over weight'. I followed his advice on 10 day detox to unwire the addiction to sugar and I could only do that thanks to the psychologically supporting mindset he gave me. I feel I'm on a whole new level of focus health and productivity and seeing the success, I'm excited to implement more of his advice! - Richard S. I've known for a while that I needed help/support/coaching but not to whom to turn to/where to turn to. Joe provided me with that comprehensive guidance, equipped me with enough information, that I can now make the necessary fundamental changes. Four to 5 days after the meeting/consultation, I started to feel better. - Agneta L. Signup now and begin your transformation to increase health, well-being and performance. About Joe: I've been a Biohacker for over 5 years and have taken my clients' health/performance from a very low place to optimum levels in both body and mind. I used to work in the city where I over-worked and over-ate with an extremely bad diet. Eventually my body broke down and I was transferred from hospital to hospital and the doctors couldn't help me. For over 6 months I was disabled and needed 24/7 care and could only sleep for 30mins at a time. Realising that if I wanted to save my life, then I had to master my own health. From that point on I began an epic transformational journey to master my own body and mind. I tried everything from conventional to alternative medicine and therapies, anything that had even the slightest chance of success. I went to over 30 alternative doctors and took hundreds of different supplements and remedies, studied everything I could about the human body/mind and how to optimise it for health and performance. This goes far beyond medicine and herbs: As Tony Robbins says to be a success at anything 80% is psychology and 20% is mechanics. What that means is that 80% is in your head and 20% is the actual actions to make it happen. Once you get the psychology sorted out then the actions become much much easier to do. Trying to achieve something without getting the psychology aligned is like trying to swim against the tide. If you work on the psychology and get that aligned to your goals and ambitions then it's like swimming with the current. In both cases you still have to swim and put the effort in, just in the 2nd option it's much easier, quicker and with less effort. When I’m teaching one of the most common responses I get is that being healthy is hardwork. My response is that being unhealthy is hard, having health problems like brain fog, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, those things are hard as hell, literally, being healthy in comparison is a walk in the park. Your body and mind is not a car, if you mistreat a car and it breaks down you can get rid of it and just buy a new one, and another and another, but if you mistreat your body/mind and it breaks down you can’t get a new one! My goal is to help you towards becoming the very best version of yourself. If you haven't already signed up then please do it now. I look forward to meeting you at the workshop and assist you in transforming your life. Anytime sessions are where we agree on a mutual time and place.
