1991 – Present
I help people discover clarity and calm in their personal and professional lives.
Astute listening, asking artful questions, and above all harnessing the power of awareness (aka “mindfulness”) are the key skills I offer.
Author of the book “Break Out of Your Mind”
2007 – Present
I wrote Break Ouf of Your Mind following a major life event and is a project that entailed 10 years of research and development.
The book offers simple yet profoundly powerful approaches to the practical applications of mindfulness and self-reflection.

I designed and delivered three residential retreats for students of my book, “Break Out of Your Mind” two for 5 days, the other for 7 days.

I designed and delivered a substantial event for an engineering team working in-house at the Hewlett-Packard plant in Bristol, UK.

I delivered hundreds of communication skills and stress managment workshops to civilian and uniformed staff at scores of hotels and military bases across England and Wales.
Business writing trainer for the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA)
2003 – 2004
I ran a number of business writing workshops for staff of the DVLA Swansea.
Communications and stress management counsellor for The Enviromment Agency

As a freelance coach I worked with managment and staff of The Environment Agency who were struggling with stress and other management and team challenges.
Management Consultant for The Meteorological Office

Hypnotherapist & Counsellor
1991 – 1996
As a hypnotherapist and counsellor in private practice I worked with individual clients and have run two, two-year hypnotherapy training courses that enabled students to gain professionally recognised qualifications in hypnotherapy.
Counsellor with the Samaritans
1990 – 1991
I trained as a Samaritan counsellor as a way of “paying forward” the good fortune that has come my way. During those years, I manned the phone lines – often through the night – and met clients in person. This was one of the most powerful life experiences I’ve ever had and one that continues to inform my work today.
And, following that conversation, if it feels appropriate for both of us I am happy to offer a completely free 1-1.5 hour session to demonstrate the principles experientially.
Sessions take place
