As a life and executive stress management consultant, the most common reasons clients seek help from me are related to stress, anxiety, depression, anger, relationship, and work-related issues. This might be related financial stress, promotional issues or challenging life, business, and career choices. Often these challenges have their roots in issues of loss, self-esteem, and traumatic events.
Calming both inner and external conflicts are my focuses for you. My mission is resolving the upset that can be caused from anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma – in two words, STRESS MANGEMENT, and I am your life, work, and relationship stress consultant.
Client’s remark, ‘Keith just gets me’, complimenting my warmth and gentleness, yet also value my varied life experiences, breadth of expertise and an understanding of how tough life can sometimes be, meaning I can help my clients build solutions, take careful decisions, and make suitable changes.
Clients who consult me value my combination of senior executive & business experience and psychological insight. They come from different backgrounds, with the majority being self-referred executives, professionals, managers, and business owners. Many others are parents and caring partners, who value my empathetic life experiences and want to lead effective, calm lives.
Which is one of the main things that I do as a business psychologist, counsellor and CBT Coach, is help clients make good sense of what is going on, simply explaining why it has such an impact and agreeing with them ways that they can resolve their unhappiness and move forward. This empowers them.
Often, employers engage me to support work-based counselling, anxiety, and stress reduction programs. My clients have included both large, national, and multinational organisations as well as smaller organisations too.
Whilst most clients, value this solution focused approach, which normally takes 5-6 sessions, others want to deepen their healing and understanding further and may seek to explore their ongoing or spiritual needs with me.

My breadth experience as a father, finance & managing director and lecturer have been enriched by my qualifications in business, psychology and teaching and of course coaching. As well as having served at board level, I lecture in Business and teach interpersonal skills to groups. I apply that combination of experience and expertise in enabling my client’s successes, in their Life or Business. It’s a unique combination of skills which enables me to be an effective, single source of support.
I bring people and business psychology simply together, without the ‘psychobabble’. My approach is pragmatic, honing my clients’ own resources to help them resolve their issues, approach their goals and get their needs met, with support and encouragement that puts personal democracy and gentle humour at the centre of a wise process. Individuals need new ways, and the commercial world is becoming more alert to the benefits that a Business Psychologist (BP) can bring. It’s a thrill to also work with company clients who draw down on my knowledge and introduce more effective working practices.
