About Us



Peter has had a passionate interest in personal and interpersonal transformation for as long as he can remember. A meditation guide since 1970, he has a doctorate for research into the role of experiences of heightened consciousness in the creative process.

After working with Tony Buzan’s Learning Methods Group, in the 1980s, he began teaching Neuro-Linguistic Programming internationally. Together with friend and colleague Jan Ardui, he created the discipline of Generative Patterning and an holistic approach to personal development and effectiveness through deepening alignment with the ‘Way of Unfolding’, present in ourselves and in all things.

Focusing this work on the exploration of the life patterns and deep epistemology of clients, he evolved the deep and powerful Re•Patterning process and Deep Transformational Coaching model to provide an integrated way to accompany clients in realizing more of their essence and expressing it fully in the world. 

More recently, he has developed a deep and holistic approach to supporting the unfolding of individuals and groups, which he calls ‘Conversations on the Edge of Silence’ or, more technically,  ‘Generative Dialogue.’

Committed to the development of coaches, Peter is an experienced Mentor Coach and Coach Supervisor, with a Diploma in Coaching Supervision from the Coaching Supervision Academy (CSA), and a Diploma in Person Centred Expressive Therapy with PCETI.

Peter founded the Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness in Bali (1995), the International Academy for Transformational Coaching and Leadership (Russia) in 2006, which became the International Academy for Deep Transformation  in 2012 (with the active support and participation of co-founders Shalini and Lalit Matai).

Peter is the author of Living Awareness, and co-author of Moksha, Living in the Spirit (with Prof. Luh Ketut Suryani), and When Performance Meets Alignment: A Compass for Coaching and Mentoring (with Jan Ardui). He has also written a book about his experiences with the energetic process of  ‘innerdance’.
