On this site you will find brief details of the services I offer, information on different workshops and courses I have developed, or provide, and the areas of practice that I tend to work in.

Psychological skills apply, and are used in all walks of life and situations. If you are a high performance athlete who wants to continue to improve, the leader of a busy and competitive business that needs an extra edge, or someone who feels stressed, depressed and unable to cope. I can assist you to improve your situation, and to live a more satisfying and meaningful life.

Psychologists are by way of their training, basically problem solvers, and skill builders. A good psychologist will help you analyse what is working, or not working, and use the benefit of their broad knowledge of psychology, and the latest scientific evidence to find answers to your dilemmas.

I generally do this by providing a skills-based approach to broaden your range of options. Clinical Psychology is a science, and evidence-based. At its best it is science with a heart; providing solutions that blend science, and skill development with an understanding of the difficulties of the human condition.

I have a long standing interest in Mindfulness, and mindfulness-based therapies. and in bringing the findings of modern research to help improve peoples’ lives. I have a particular interest in mindfulness based approaches to leadership (including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - ACT), and in the use of effective behavioural strategies within organisations. If you are interested in these approaches as an individual, or for your organisation just give me a call.

On my blog I will post information and resources that may be of interest. I hope you will find my site useful. I welcome your enquiries.
