I work 1:1 one in person in my office, out in nature and internationally via the web. I offer personal development retreats, vision quests and organisational facilitation, training and consultancy in the UK and beyond. 

Deep Ecopsychology is an evolving synthesis of the principles and practices of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Self-Relations Psychotherapy, Generative Coaching, Systemic Trance, Jungian Psychology, Mythology, Ritual, Rites of Passage and the resonant intelligence of the body. It pays deference to indigenous wisdom traditions, and winds its way back to our deep roots in the wild natural world. 

Please have a poke around my website, and click on the button below if you’d like to receive infrequent details of up and coming courses, workshops etc, or click through to check out instagram and facebook. Up at the top you’ll find links to events, and a selection of poetry, just in case you’re hungry for a little soul food.

Brief Bio

 

People sometimes comment and say it’s been unconventional…

School was a social experiment for me. I left age 16 and took an engineering apprenticeship in gas distribution based in central London. In 1997 I elected to study applied psychology as part of my leadership development programme. Making the most of the opportunities I could see, I became technical IT infrastructure programme manager for Transco. One afternoon in an investment committee presentation I had a moment of clarity and soon after embarked on a very different journey. 

I travelled extensively for two years and began coaching people I met along the way. I returned to the UK and established Clarity Coaching, offering coaching, training and consultancy in the fair city of Bristol, in South West England.

I continued to study various psychologies and travel in the UK and North America. My client base grew into an established  portfolio of organisational clients operating at the sharp end of cultural change and transition. 

Since 1997 I’ve taught psychology to the public and to organisations, in university and in the wilderness, and applied my understandings in my consultant roles to help clients navigate the landscapes beyond the edge of their creative capacities. 

After working with the Jungian Dr Robert Moore, P.hd, I founded JourneymanUK in 2007 and stewarded a rough and ready community initiative into a thriving charity offering men and adolescent boys and their communities a contemporary rite of passage and peer mentoring networks. Sadly, when key staff justified their ongoing breaches of safeguarding law and my fellow directors colluded, I decided my time was done.  

I moved to the North-East of Scotland in 2015. My work continues to evolve in terms of its focus and substance. I spend my leisure time indulging my passion for hiking, mountain biking, and photography. 

My professional time is shared amongst my private 1:1 practice, and my consulting and facilitation work with NGO’s and community groups. These are mostly focused on projects seeking to rewild significant chunks of the highlands. 

Along side these I’m just about ready to launch The Helios Fellowship. It’s an evolution of JourneymanUK with a specific focus on the education and training of generative community leaders and through them, creating a nation-wide peer mentor network for boys and men. 

I can see why some might think it ‘unconventional’.
