Fortune favours the brave. If you want what you've never had, you have to do what you've never done... things you might think you never could or would do. Odyssey is a transformational journey that will lead you from where you are to where you want to be through a series of experiences designed to help you grow into the person who gets to live the life you have imagined. Odyssey is your own personal journey to greatness.

Who Is Odyssey For?

Odyssey is for those who dare to believe in their potential. We work with two kinds of people... you're either a high achieving peak performer with a thirst for the latest cutting edge techniques to take your game to the next level... or... you've found yourself at a crossroads in life. Deep down, you know you're capable of more and you have a foggy vision of how you want your life to be. The people we work with all have one thing in common; a yearning for more and a willingness to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying. ~ Michael Jordan

"Scary and Exciting are now two words I live my life by. They stand for anything that you initially think" Oooh f@ck! No I could never do that!" or "I'd love to do that but.." Since I started living by the Scary and Exciting philosophy I am becoming a person who is not afraid to take risks in life. A person who is standing up for all things I believe in and am passionate about. I'm becoming a person who wants to show the world that anything is possible and there are no excuses as to why you can't chase your dreams and create the life you want to live." ~ Sarah Kings

"Peter has an uncanny knack of getting right to the heart of things. You don’t always agree with him, you don’t always like what he says but he can clear the cobwebs out of your mind like the newest broom in your cupboard. And what is more, you’ll have a helluva lot of fun doing the spring clean. " ~ Diana Johnson

"Peter helped me realise that I don’t have to be ashamed of my past. He continues to help me realise that I can do the crazy things that I dream of – had it not been for him I’m probably still be stuck in an office daydreaming about the things I would like to do. In the years that followed me learning NLP, I applied everything I had learned… I ran my first marathon (with only six weeks of training), did a bungee-jump, moved to Spain, found a business partner and set up a health retreat. I have had two books published and done many more Scary and Exciting things. " ~ Gareth Stubbs

"Skydiving was something that I promised myself I would never do… the thought of jumping out of a plane scared me to the bone. When Peter told me that in the Skydiving Workshop he could show me how to remove fear – I was curious as to exactly what was possible and booked into the course. During the workshop and before the Skydive, I started to change my perception, not only of what the Skydiving stands for but also for myself as a person. I realized how much I was limiting myself by just insisting on what I would and wouldn’t do.
Since the Skydiving Workshop, I don’t insist anymore. Instead I am open to challenges, opportunities and new things. Above all, I know that I can do anything I put my mind to. The Skydiving experience is a lifelong anchor for a very important lesson. I use it regularly whenever I hear my inner voice say, “no, you can’t do that.” Since the workshop I have done many more Scary and Exciting things that I previously would never have dreamed of. I’ve done Heli-Skiing, learned to surf, got my motorbike license and have spoken to groups of over 100 people, plus much more. I realise now that it wasn’t the Skydive itself that changed my life… but what it stands for – overcoming my own inner limitations." ~ Barbara Simon
