Real change works from the inside out. The world around us works from the outside in. The world would take us out of the slums, but real change takes the slums out of us. My coaching philosophy is that to do this we need to break down our lifelong conditioning. This is the essence of my book and my personal change breakthrough coaching.

Discover How to solve those nagging problems that just won’t go away or/and deliver a happy and successful life for yourself …So You Can Climb out of that rut and start achieving your potential. Its never too late to turn your life around and in my 40 years of coaching I have worked with thousands of people exactly like you from all over the world.

Do you know you can turn your life around and become successful very quickly whether this be a specific problem or perhaps a wider life success challenge?

I am an expert in PTSD, Anxiety, Stress, Relationships, Success and Personal Breakthrough Coaching. Moreover, for over 40 years I have worked as a clinical psychologist, neurology expert and success coach in my clinics in London, Durham (England) and in Phoenix, Arizona in the USA.

I have 2 million followers on social media including 1.5 million on Facebook alone.

I have/am currently working with:

The UK NHS, Coca Cola, UK and USA Governments, the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, US Air Force, US Marines, The Football Association, Fortune 500/FTSE 100/250 Companies, and many professional sports teams and countless executives and other individuals.

Do you ever wonder why some people are so happy and successful?

This is a key question that I answer within my recent book along with the knowledge on how to get what you want. Here’s the secret… Our brains are constantly being shaped by experience. Most of us have very different behaviours and thoughts today than we did 10 years ago. This shift is neuroplasticity working; changes in brain structure as we experience, learn, and adapt. With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway and with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being. These small changes, frequently enough repeated, lead to changes in how our brains work. Over time, it becomes an unconscious habit along with automatic responses; a part of us. We literally become what we think and do. This why you have become who you are and without expert guidance it is all you will ever get!

Let me explain: From birth your present map of the world was being set by your upbringing, your particular education and the values and beliefs of your family and friends. Your neural links were being set in a particular pattern and consequently in many people their behaviour and success was starting to become limited.

Your body receives millions of bits of information per second through your 5 senses; sight, hearing, feeling, smell and taste. Your neural links have set up your senses to filter out 99 % of this information coming to you every second. Accordingly, you generalize, delete and distort these messages to suit your reality and yet we know that this reality doesn’t exist! It is a construct of your existing view of the world. A view that has not, to date, delivered for you what you truly want out of life. The good news is that I will help you to develop new neural links so that your reality becomes wider, your choices will increase considerably, and your achievements will become realizable. You will become unstoppable!

I’m sure you will understand that If you ignore your current position you will continue to despair, and your problems will become worse. Can you imagine a rotting wooden beam – eventually its just going to break!

The big question on my client’s minds is…how  can I quickly understand where I am and how to not only fix my current issue but find sustainable happiness and success.

Many clients come to me with some of the following problems:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • PTSD
  • Failing relationships or can’t get into/out of a relationship
  • Failure to achieve potential or success
  • Poor performance
  • Unhappy
  • Personal breakthrough
  • Dealing with all sorts of other problems

My Story

I’ve been coaching for over 40 years and I haven’t yet come across a problem that I couldn’t solve. I am a published author in the area of neurological based change, and I have overcome so many issues myself that I am well placed to help others.

During a long career in the military I underwent several prototype mental strengthening programs which meant that I could not fail at anything I did.

Using mental strengthening and survival stories I teach mental strengthening, leadership, personal and team building strategies that brought success. I have also used this same methodology within the corporate, professional sports and governments under my Organizational Neurology ™ program of work.

I joined the Royal Air Force at 17 as an aircraft mechanic. I had effectively been kicked out of the family home, I had no qualifications, I had low self- esteem and confidence and I was by far the youngest within a 100-plus aircraft engineering team. I suffered significant “banter” by Air Force colleagues. To the extent that I was physically hung as part of a prank! I was trapped, tied up and hung on an engine lift hoist high up in an aircraft maintenance hangar. Unfortunately, this “banter” went wrong!

Just before I passed out, I was cut down by an aircraft flying instructor who unusually that day had decided to walk through the hangar to the flight line. This “banter” continued for several more months culminating in my attempted suicide – I was still not 18!

Obviously, the suicide didn’t work and a few weeks later I was visited in my barrack block by a volunteer from the camp church. He had been sent by the padre.

It turned out that this guy, an ex-Jewish WW2 resistance fighter and Commando, who was captured and survived a concentration camp was now a research behavioural psychologist and he was working with special forces and other similar organizations to improve mental strengthening.

I didn’t know it at the time, but I was to become Martin’s “test bench”!

Over the next 6 months, I attended numerous retreats with other “volunteers” from the marines and army. I learned about neurology, naturally occurring brain chemicals such as dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin and how you could manipulate these chemicals in addition to re-aligning what we now know to be psychological filters of generalization, deletion, and distortion to achieve a huge improvement in personal potential and productivity particularly under intense stress. It was a very structured and teachable process that worked!

My change in physiology and behavior was palpable and I was seeing life through a new incredibly powerful lens. Within a year I had been accepted for technician training, something that would normally take 3 years at least, and thankfully posted away from the base where I had such lows and highs.

In the following years, my new approach to life led to significant opportunities and happiness. I undertook day release at the local college and obtained the qualifications I needed to apply for officer selection and training. I graduated from the Royal Air Force College Cranwell in 1986 as an Engineering Flying Officer. One of the greatest achievements in my life was receiving my Commissioning Scroll signed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. See the image below.

I was rapidly promoted to Flight Lieutenant and then Squadron Leader and acting Wing Commander. Following many appointments in out of area operational deployments. I utilized the training that I had received from Martin to support individuals and teams to reach exceptional performance and productivity under very extreme operational conditions. Moreover, I added to Martin’s research and delivery methodology to design this book and my Breakthrough Training.

I have designed and led on several courses based on my learnings and I have presented as a professional speaker in the UK, Germany and the USA. I have a social media following of 1.6 million and growing daily.

As you can tell my career to date has had some pretty life defining points and I relate all my success to what Martin taught me all those years ago. And I am going to pass on that same training and development to you.

I provide the following step-by-step practical Coaching or Mentoring sessions either in person or by video conference/telephone. Moreover, most of these sessions can be either 1-2-1 or in small groups:

From the initial call, we can discuss which program is best for you. Alternatively, we can just continue on a session by session basis.

Personal or Group Breakthrough: Is a 1-2-1  1 or 2 days intensive full of coaching, from 10 am to 6 pm. This is ideal for re-planning and restructuring your life or resolving a complex life situation. It’s an intense, deep, and life-changing process. Depending on where you are in the world this can be online or in-person

FEES: Apart from the 1-2-1 sessions I do not discuss my program fees simply because I don’t want you to decide on price but rather based on how much value you’d get from working with me and how well we connect. Food for thought: It’s your life, not a meal deal.

I look forward to working with you
