creating sustainable success
 through amazing mental health

for individuals, organisations and for life


“There is a great, untapped source of sustainable energy.

That which lies within each of us”. Jonathan Downes


Imagine how your life would be, if most of the time you were living from an abundant well of inner energy coupled with a deep sense of peace. Really, just take a moment and imagine it. Now replicate that across your organisation. What impact could that have on you, your teams, your customers and community? On your costs and contribution?

I’ve felt first hand the disorientating impact of mental ill health on the quality of my life, relationships and work. I’ve also experienced the power of timely and effective help and having the tools and skills to experience amazing mental health most of the time.

What I’ve learnt and applied over the years from some of the best in the world in the fields of neuroscience, psychology and spirituality is contained within my Simple Skills for Amazing Mental Health tools and programme.

I help organisations and individuals take a proactive approach to mental health offering tools and guidance in creating an environment of sustainable success, not just surviving but thriving.

For organisations 
Mental health and mindset have a fundamental impact on employee engagement and effecitveness.


I help people gain self awareness, understanding and skills to better manage their own thinking to reduce the likelihood of experiencing the most common mental ill health conditions.

This reduces the cost and disruption of high staff turnover, the financial and human cost of absenteeism, the unmeasured and hidden cost of presenteeism. 


But that’s just the beginning. The real opportunity is in staff engagement and alignment with the organisational outcomes. Higher quality interactions with colleagues, customers and community.

Get in touch and let's see how we can make a difference together. I'm available for keynotes, conferences or consulting around creating a culture of amazing mental health and sustainable success.




Coaching with me

Like many people I started using a coach when I had a problem but quickly realised coaching has the ability to improve the quality of life for everyone all of the time.

When coaching I create a relaxed, safe, fun but focused environment and engender honesty by being honest. I like to get to the story behind the story and I’m tenacious in working through incongruence.

My Amazing Mental Health model draws on coaching practice, psychology, neuroscience and spiritual learning. I use it to facilitate self-awareness, self-management and self-actualisation ie. knowing who you are, how you work and what you want.

I’ll help you take responsibility for yourself and your relationships with others. To set and progress sustainable growth goals that build from acceptance and abundance rather than inadequacy or unhealthy competition, ensuring checks, timeframes and accountability along the way. As far as possible, I’ll give you the skills to coach yourself over time.

My approach is particularly effective with but not exclusive to senior leaders with a technical background or serving in technical industries.

I love the transformation and impact of coaching and the ripple effect into the lives of those we love, lead and serve. But ultimately, coaching is better experienced than explained. Whether with more or someone else, don't leave it too long!

Whole Man Academy

I am a coach and speaker for the Whole Man Academy. It creates spaces for men to talk and was founded by my friend Anthony Astbury and Matthew Shaw, BBC news editor and mental health champion.

Events, seminars and coaching sessions are designed to help men build a strong mindset and improve their resilience in today’s challenging and demanding world. 


About Me

I trained as a mechanical engineer, which surprises most people until I explain the two questions that drove me then and still drive me today “how does it work and how can I make it work better?” 

What started off in solving design challenges in the automotive industry quickly turned from parts, to process and system, to projects and people. Following a brush with ‘the dark side’ (by which I mean mental ill health) it became personal, how do I work and how can I help myself work better?

My core value is love and like many when those we love most are impacted by mental ill health as they have in my life,  we look for ways to help. These are some of the reasons mindset has become my passion and why I’m on a mission to raise the baseline of wellbeing through my Amazing Mental Health Model and programme.
