The Team

Coach & Therapist

Hello! I'm Thomas Joseph Dignam, a certified and accredited holistic self-identity and awareness coach dedicated to guiding individuals towards self-awareness and authentic living. . My approach is a unique, blending popular and proven techniques, with holistic practices, non-traditional and complementary approaches to create a truly empowering journey of self-discovery and growth.

My Story:
My life's voyage, as I've lived and experienced it, began in a childhood filled with unique challenges. These early years, though difficult, instilled in me a resilience that has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. As I transitioned into adulthood, each experience, whether a trial or triumph, contributed significantly to my development. This path led me to my current profession in holistic life coaching and sex therapy.

My path to becoming a holistic life coach and sex therapist was fuelled by a deep desire to understand the human psyche and help others. I pursued education and certifications in these fields, immersing myself in the study of emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and various therapeutic techniques. This educational journey was both enlightening and transformative, equipping me with the skills and knowledge to guide others through their challenges and towards a path of growth and self-discovery. My story is not just about overcoming adversity; it's about using those experiences to empower others in their personal journeys.

At the heart of my professional journey has been a deep commitment to understanding and cultivating emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and self-awareness. These elements have not only shaped my approach to therapy and coaching but have also guided me in my interactions and understanding of others.

Today, as a coach and therapist, my early and adult life experiences, and the growth I achieved through overcoming various obstacles play a pivotal role. They enable me to empathise deeply with my clients, understanding their struggles and guiding them towards resilience and growth. My journey is a testament to the power of transformation through adversity, and it fuels my passion for helping others navigate their paths to personal fulfilment and empowerment.

Specialisation: Holistic Self Identity and Awareness Coach & Therapist

Mission Statement:

"I empower individuals grappling with, purpose, passion and self-identity to cultivate a mindset of accountability and awareness.

Through a journey of self-discovery, I guide my clients to gain authority over their lives, fostering clarity, pleasure and a positive mindset for holistic success and authenticity in all areas of life."


I'm a dedicated holistic coach and therapist specialising in the realms of self-identity and awareness. My approach is anchored in the belief that understanding oneself is essential for unlocking success and fulfilment in various facets of life.

I guide individuals and organisations on transformative journeys, enabling them to realise their full potential in life, relationships, career, and beyond.


My specialisation in self-identity and awareness coaching is grounded on the principle that profound self-knowledge is the cornerstone of all personal growth.

This specialisation allows me to support clients across diverse aspects of their lives, from personal relationships and sexual wellness to career development and executive leadership.

The Triple A Model My Core Beliefs in Coaching:


I strongly advocate for personal accountability in the journey towards self-awareness. By encouraging clients to take ownership of their actions and decisions, I facilitate a deeper sense of responsibility and self-understanding.


Authenticity is at the heart of my coaching philosophy. I believe that true progress and fulfilment are achieved when individuals embrace their genuine selves. My role is to guide clients in uncovering and honouring their authentic identities.


Gaining self-identity and self-awareness also involves cultivating a sense of personal authority. I empower clients to become authoritative over their life choices and beliefs, reinforcing confidence in their insights and decisions.

Scientific Support:

Recent studies in psychology underscore the importance of self-awareness, revealing that individuals with a higher degree of self-understanding tend to have better mental health, more positive relationships, and more successful careers. This scientific insight validates the critical role of self-awareness in overall well-being and achievement

Philosophical Integration

As Socrates profoundly stated, "To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom." This adage perfectly captures my coaching ethos – wisdom, fulfilment, and success originate from a deep understanding of one's identity and motivations.

In my coaching practice, I blend empathetic listening, insightful questioning, and evidence-based strategies to assist clients in discovering their true selves. This process enables them to align their decisions with their core values and aspirations, leading to a more authentic and fulfilling life.

Whether you’re seeking personal growth, enriching relationships, advancing professionally, or excelling in leadership, my coaching provides the necessary tools and support to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation.
