• My Journey

    Transformation or Alchemy has different stages to it and these are mine.


    I have a Dream...


    Of a more beautiful world, a world where we are all equal and life in peace and happiness together. A world where we are all valued for who we are.


    “Leon has the ability to enable change in people, to reveal the barriers to change and shine a light. Our experience of working with him, with an aim to re-energise our company, has been fruitful. Individual and team dynamics have freed us to look for solutions for the whole company in a fun dynamic way, whilst leaving us with a set of tools to now help ourselves.”
    John Benque

    The Chef

    The Chef


    In my twenties and early thirties I was a Top Chef in the Netherlands where I ran my highly acclaimed restaurant: Bellefroid. It taught me that being a master in what you do is very important and that I could achieve anything I wanted.

    The Coming of Age



    I have run several businesses in my time. From a restaurant to a whole sale business selling wagyu beef and truffles to the top London restaurants Called TFC Express to The Sacred Alchemy empowering people to to connect to their highest self.

    I always struggled with the way that we treat each other in business, it never felt right. It took me years to realise: It wasn't me, there is another way.

    The transformation

    The Foundation


    In 2009 I started my Foundation The Extraordinary Ones, about our interconnectedness which I ran until 2014. Our concept Fill the Cup was the most successful raising funds to feed children in developing countries. I see this period as my apprenticeship and transformation into becoming truly myself and living true purpose.

    The Present Moment

    Calais Kitchens


    In 2015 I was asked to help open a kitchen in the refugee camp in Calais, France. A project I am very proud of. From feeding a few hundred people every day we went to setting up a food distribution for 10 thousand people. I used all my inner and outer skills to make this happen.

    The Present Moment



    Compassion is a place where we connect with each other through sharing a meal. It is based on the principles loyal, local and loving. Whilst eating and enjoying the dishes, people, cultures and stories are

    brought together in a space where everyone is equal and where everyone is encouraged to talk and share.

    When we share a meal with someone talk about our worries, success, we deepen our connections.

    Alchemist - transforming people's perspective

    Alchemy is about the transformation of our soul. To rediscover and realign with who we really are. We live in a world which often takes us away from our true identity and we feel we have to live in a certain way. It takes courage and strength to rediscover who you are. I have been on that journey and I walk with you on your transformation.
