BSc (Hons) Psychology
Certificate in Counselling Skills (CPCAB accredited)
Diploma in Personal Transformation Coaching

I have enjoyed a long career in Human Resources, which saw me progress to the role of Director of HR. Throughout my HR career I have had the opportunity to use my coaching, counselling and NLP skills to help colleagues and teams overcome both personal and professional challenges, helping them to go on to achieve their goals.

I have always been interested in how our minds work, how they both help and hinder us, and how we can improve our understanding of ourselves and of our amazing brains to help make our lives better. My interest led me to study Psychology at degree level, and to go on to study counselling and talking therapies, life coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnosis, Time Line Therapy, Time Based Techniques and Mindfulness.  With my brother, I set up Business Minded to provide accessible, evidence-based mindfulness training., helping leaders, managers and employees manage stress, improve wellbeing, perform better and feel happier.
