About Us

Our Story and Why We Are Here

The road to Masca has become a life metaphor for Cathy and I. This picture is the one we took en route. The village is a mini machu-picchu perched like a jewel on the hillside. You have a distant view of where you want to go, but the road is hard and unpredictable. It doesn't always feel safe, yet the journey and destination is so worth the struggle. 


As we've navigated our own journey through life, we've come to realise that the purpose of the journey is the journey, not just the destination. The more we understand our values, passions, and dreams and our own unique personality, and the lessons of life hidden in the journey, the easier it is to see the purposes of our life yet to be fulfilled and the direction of travel we've yet to embrace.


You have one life - you owe yourself and the world more than 'just a job'. Your potential is immense and meaningful purpose is yours for the finding, but the weight of life's struggle tends to hide it. Careful excavation will reveal it. Now is the time to make the most of the time you have and live your best life possible. The Emerge Life Direction Programme is bespoke to our partnership. It's designed to get to the heart of who you are and what you're about. Join with us to forge your own path and live your best life now.

"Amazing! This was a very helpful course. It asked the right questions which I realised we don’t ask ourselves. I now have a clearer picture of what's important to me and I can use that in my job. Definitely do it! It's a life changing course! S. Davies.

"The exercises help to focus on important issues relating to possible life or work direction changes or to improving your existing situations by understanding yourself better and under standing your career, calling & specific interests." M. Wright - Retired corporate trainer and director.

"The result of being coached left me with a tangible plan to do something about the challenges I’d previously struggled to work through. The discipline of working through the issues together with someone who skilfully asked searching questions and helped keep my focus on what the real crux of the matter was, was a great return on investment."

"This book is a very useful addition to the teaching armoury for those involved in leadership and management training and an excellent work for its application and relevance as a tool for self development… The work has both intellectual depth and breadth… The material is organised in a most user friendly way. Its text is neatly punctuated along its course by useful boxes in the text containing learning points that reinforce its principal messages. It is conceptually comprehensive & its diagrams are illuminating, plentiful and serve as valuable metaphors for what the author is advocating… As someone who is involved in teaching managers, I see this as a breath of fresh air that I would commend to all of them most strongly".

A Study Book For Teachers

Not currently available being revised


This book designed for teachers, challenges those charged with the responsibility of transition to consider the issue from the standpoint of empowering students through the process. The book is well researched and well written posing questions and then providing answers that will help and support teachers who are working with children as they are journeying along the road of transition. Practical ideas are suggested to develop the themes considered, and there is much that will stimulate the thought and methodology adopted, to ensure all students gain much from the process as well as laying down a firm foundation for further development within the school and later into adult life.”
