About me

I am a veteran, serving ten years with HM Royal Marines on operations all over the globe. On leaving the forces, I was employed in the middle east and gained employment in the superyacht industry. For the last 14 years, I have served as an operational firefighter and manager. I am still currently employed by the fire and rescue service as a lead training instructor.

Throughout the different careers, I have had, I have always taken a keen interest in mental health and the lack of support offered. Although things are changing, I still believe there is more to be done in order to help those that need it, especially supporting those suffering all forms of trauma.

I provide a bespoke, confidential and safe service to people from all walks of life and specialise in working with people from all elements of the Armed Forces and Emergency Services. People who are struggling with everything from complex trauma, anxiety and depression to adjusting to civilian life.
