Learning Behaviour Change



I’ve always had a fascination with the psychology of behaviour change, personal transformation and the link between mind and body. I remember reading (or attempting to read) books by Carl Jung and the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget at a very early age. At 19 I formally studied psychology at A-Level and, a number of years later, my Master of Science research thesis investigated the relationship between beliefs and health behaviour change.

I found psychology highly frustrating because nothing seemed clear. One person says one thing whilst another person says something completely different. One person agrees with parts of a theory whilst someone else agrees with other elements of that theory.

Then I came across Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

NLP cuts through all the ‘guff’ and gets straight down to what we know about human behaviour and the techniques which help change unwanted or unhelpful ones.

So I studied NLP with one of only a very few people who hold the prestigious title of Master Trainer of Trainers and is a student of the internationally recognised ‘trailblazer’ of NLP, Dr Tad James.

After a few years on courses, practice and study, in 2009 I became a Master Practitioner of NLP, Master Practitioner of Hypnosis and Master of TimeLine Therapy. Since then, I’ve worked with numerous private, public and voluntary businesses helping develop wellbeing and behaviour change programmes, I’ve written and published books and attained a Diploma in Positive Psychology too. 



As the mind is connected to the body so too is the body interconnected with the mind. It was therefore important for me to not only understand the mind but also have an in-depth understanding of how physical activity and health behaviours impact our physical body and psychological state.

I have therefore studied anatomy and physiology and gained numerous academic qualifications in areas of physical activity, exercise and nutrition. In fact, I became the first person in the UK to attain the quality of education standards laid out by the international body of exercise instruction (F.I.S.A.F). 



For the past decade I’ve been particularly interested in the science of spirituality.

Having an academic background I find it hard to simply accept any claims about personal spiritual growth without scientific evidence to back it up. From my research in quantum physics, epigenetics and positive psychology we can no longer dismiss the powerful influence of thoughts to manifest physical changes to body, behaviours and reality.

The connection between mind, body and spirit is the ultimate truth and this is what I teach.
