Over the past three years, I’ve been helping individuals from around the world to learn the art of living a good life by guiding them toward:
Philosophy, derived from ancient Greek, literally means “love wisdom”. As a philosopher grounded in the Stoic tradition, I consider it my solemn duty to be first a true seeker and lover of wisdom, and then to share that wisdom with those who have ears to hear, eyes to see, and hearts that feel.
My students and I share the path together, and as such, we learn, grow, and are transformed together. It is in this mutual journey that the character is purified, and the soul restored.
Throughout my time as a philosophical mentor, I’ve had the privilege of working with a broad range of individuals from many countries and even more professions, including:
The philosophical path works best when you decide to aim at the highest possible good for yourself, your family, your community, and the world at large. As your mentor, I’ll join you in this shared pursuit of the highest good in both our sessions together as well as in our individual lives.
Inspired by the philosopher Seneca’s approach, I’d like to encourage you to join me on the path of healing. “I am not so shameless as to undertake to cure my fellow-men when I am ill myself,” Seneca wrote. “I am, however, discussing with you troubles which concern us both, and sharing the remedy with you, just as if we were lying ill in the same hospital.”
I’ll help you to take a balanced approach to your personal transformation by employing Epictetus’s formula for progress: self-scrutiny applied with kindness. This formula has helped many of my clients to move beyond unhelpful and often damaging personal narratives and beliefs.
My method of mentoring only works if both you and I decide to come to each session in the spirit of total honesty. The power of two individuals truthfully sharing the depths and heights of their lives cannot be overstated, and it is in this respectful and vulnerable dialogue where philosophical therapy of the soul can take place.
I constantly remind myself of why I do what I do, and I take very seriously the responsibility that is placed upon me as a mentor. As such, I believe that my most fundamental duty is to live my life in a way that shows, rather than speaks, the art of living a good life. I make it my priority to continue in my pursuit of wisdom via philosophy, theology, poetry, and music, and to allow the fruits of these endeavours to serve as the true proof of any authority I may have as a teacher.
If you feel that we’d make a great team, I’d be honoured to work with you. I am typically able to take on between 8-10 individual students per week, so register below and I’ll be in touch with you shortly to see if we can arrange a free initial call to get to know each other better.
