I am a psychologist, coach, and writer. My courses provide practical skills and ideas to help you get a better handle on yourself, a relationship, and life in general. My aim is to show how easy it is to improve emotional wellbeing, and to sweep away the doubts and uncertainties that often prevent people from sorting out the things that trouble them. My strapline, "Life doesn't have to be like that" comes from the idea that – given the right information and a bit of encouragement – we can fix a lot of life's irritants ourselves. I am known for my “engaging, dynamic and approachable style”, and “an ability to deliver a serious message in an accessible way” (his students’ views). I have been a regular presenter at conferences in the UK, Europe and the USA, and over 100,000 people have attended his my workshops and seminars on topics How to Deal with Difficult People, Personal Resilience, Conflict Resolution, and more.
