My friends and colleagues alike call me El, and you are welcome to do so as well.
I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation and a Newfield Certified Coach (NCC®) through the Newfield Network. I’m also the first Embodied Yoga Principles Certified Coach in Asia.
I am also a flawed human being; a student of life, dependent on the saving grace of God.
My first love is visual art; I started my professional life as an animator. I then co-founded an animation training and media business that is, till date, 15 years old. While learning the ropes of leadership, I discovered my passion for developing personal and interpersonal skills. Subsequently, I learnt how I could contribute to this body of work as a coach.
I help people play at higher levels, get ‘unstuck’ and uncover new possibilities through the ontological approach: working not just in speech, but with emotions and the physical body as well. This is why my coaching style is more holistic, flexible and applicable to a wider range of clients.
Known for my academic rigour and integrative thinking, I have been teased (endearingly) as the bookworm by my peers. And yes, I can be quite the inquisitive nerd, obsessively digging into what I set my heart on mastering.
My clients also find me a perceptive and relatable coach, which I attribute, in part, to the wins and losses I’ve accumulated in my wide-ranging experiences as an entrepreneur, youth educator, trainer, facilitator, artist, animator and producer; and also that of a son, husband, father, and recovering perfectionist.
