“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

-Pablo Casals

‘Through the course of his life Miguel has faced and overcome many personal life challenges. No wonder he is so well equipped with the necessary empathy, understanding and confidence to help others in the way that he does.'

R. Orgille MBE, Wrekin Trust -February 2013

Miguel’s training workshops, coaching and motivational speaking are all underpinned by the knowledge that the relationship with our-selves and other human beings is the single most important factor that will determine the quality of life. As well as being infused with his own experiences, Miguel’s training is a fusion of:

  • Coaching
  • Neuro linguistic programming
  • Attachment theory
  • Neuro science
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Person centred learning
  • Mindfulness

"Miguel’s delivery style is humorous, sensitive and empathic. The workshop was an excellent opportunity to stop, reflect and refocus." 

Will Thomas, Vision 4 Learning -April 2011
