We use our lived experience and skills to create weekly check in groups teaching emotional intelligence. The groups become a safe place people can come to, to check in with their high and lows and learn skills on communication, vulnerability, honesty, vision and purpose. Many of the skills required for personal development.
We currently deliver these workshops in schools and prisons in the south of England.



We use our lived experience and skills to help people understand themselves at a deeper level and encourage them to move towards a better version of themselves through various techniques such as Carl Jung's description of The Archetypes, ICE Baths, Breath Work, Native American Sweat Lodges, and deep emotional processing work.



Michael is the Author of Best-Selling Book 'Young Offender'. He has been sober for 12 years and since his release from prison in 2001 he has been on a journey practising healing and self-development on himself to improve his life and heal the wounds from his own childhood. He went from a child from an underprivileged background, with zero qualifications to being in a position to retire at the age of 35. He works with all the tools which he has found to be most beneficial, he brings these tools together to help others reach their full potential and help them to step up and let their own light shine. His core belief is about 100% accountability, giving back, and transforming the lives of others from all walks of life.
