I am an expert in the field of Personal Development Coaching, Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy and am registered with the Hypnotherapy and Life Coach Directories. Highly qualified and accredited, my experience allows me to work closely with clients to find a tailored solution which works for them.
A resident of Falmouth in Cornwall, I have spent over 30 years as an Officer in the Royal Navy. This time has provided me with considerable experience in handling varied and unusual issues and complaints. Building on this experience, I have more than 25 years of personal development experience working within both the public and private sectors.
Insured and DBS checked, my professional integrity is something I am very proud of.
I am a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management, a leading body in management and leadership studies, and have achieved full accreditation from the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, who develop, promote and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe. I also hold memberships of the Association of Neuro Linguistic Programmers and the Association for Coaching.
I am an accredited practitioner of the popular and widely used Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator, which is well respected in the world of business. I also use the TKI tool to aid with conflict resolution. Having trained with John Grinder, the co-founder of neurolinguistic programming, I am well placed to provide NLP training.
Holding a Diploma in Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy and the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) has allowed me to register with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), The National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and The National Board for Modern Psychotherapy (NBMP), meaning that I abide by strict codes of conduct and ethical standards.
I also hold a Masters Degree from Cranfield University, which specialises in leadership and management.
Ensuring that my skills remain up to date through ongoing training and supervision is important to me, and I am currently studying for an Advanced Diploma in Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy as well as working towards EMCC accredited supervisor status.
Working with clients for a fixed period, or on a more open ended basis, I work closely with every individual with the aim of enabling them to enhance their life and to live it more fully.

I would like to tell you how much my sessions with John have changed my life forever. Before I met him I suffered from depression, low self esteem, lack of confidence, worried constantly and drank too much. I had been like this for as long as I can remember.
After just one session with John I understood how my brain worked and had stopped dwelling on the past and worrying incessantly. I have gone on to have numerous sessions and I feel better than I have for years. I now have control of my mind instead of it having control of me. I feel very positive, am able to make decisions and most of all I am really happy. Things that would have once bothered me just don’t any more.
I would highly recommend sessions with John to anyone.*
Before the initial consultation, I didn't know what to expect and wondered if I would be able to speak openly about why I was there, but as soon as I sat down with John, I was instantly reassured. Not only did he very clearly explain his processes and techniques, he was obviously invested in helping me to achieve my goals. His excellent interpersonal skills and kind nature always helped me to relax during each session.
I've achieved far more than I initially set out to and these changes were so subtle at the time, it didn't feel arduous. But when I look at where I am now compared to where I was, I'm amazed at how far I've come in such a short time and eternally grateful to John for guiding me toward this outcome.
I can't recommend him enough.*
After realising that feeling anxious all the time and having a few panic attacks was not something I should have to put up with I decided I needed to make a change and do something to help me deal with everyday life. I had lost my confidence and was starting to avoid certain situations and was feeling unhappy and very tired in my own mind which made it hard for me to deal with home and work life in my usual way.
It was the best decision and I can honestly say it has changed my life, my way of thinking and understanding why I felt the way I did and what I had to do to change it and all of this happened in just a few months.
I would highly recommended his services.*
I went to see John with depression and anxiety which affected me on a daily basis. I was on medication and seeing a counsellor but did not feel like I was getting anywhere other than the dark hole I lived in. On my first session I was instantly made to feel at ease about my problems and felt comfortable to talk about the difficulties I had gone through over the previous years. After every session no matter how bad or dark a place I was in that day I always came away feeling more positive and upbeat. John gave me techniques to overcome my fears and anxiety, taught me how the brain works and gave me a cd which I used frequently to help me relax especially when my brain was working on overdrive feeding me with negativity. I can honestly say I now feel more like the old me and can see the light at the end of a very dark and very long tunnel.
I would highly recommended his services to anyone for any problem!*
