About me

What would you need to overcome a period of crisis and trauma? To replace destructive lifestyle patterns with positive ones? And to succeed in your Personal and Professional Transformation? You would need a Conversation With Impact. A Conversation With Impact makes the difference you are after by giving you what your existing conversations cannot or will not. Too many people live with persistent difficulties and challenges because they are having conversations that fail to give them what they need.

It was a Conversation With Impact that shaped who I am and what I do. At one time, my own life took a destructive path and my mental health deteriorated. It was a coach/therapist who gave me a Conversation With Impact and put my life back together. Putting my life back together began with volunteering for a project in South East London. The project, which offered respite to families with children living with conditions such as autism, proved to be the start of my new career. Although it took a while to sink in, my volunteering gave me a sense of meaning and purpose that had been lacking.

In 2005 I qualified as a therapist and then later as a life and executive coach and I discovered what it feels like to contribute. My real strength is the ability to provide coaching and therapy because for many people their issues do not fall neatly into any one personal or professional category.

If you work with me you can choose either individual sessions or my Transformation Programmes. Either way you get to work through the 6 stages of my I.M.P.A.C.T. Model:

IMPACT: A Conversation With Impact to make the difference you are after MEANING: Making sense of why things are as they are to live with meaning PATTERNS: Identifying negative patterns and replacing them with positives ones ACCEPTANCE: Finding acceptance as your real self, someone full of potential      CHALLENGE: Making challenge work for you, not against you      TRANSFORMATION: Learning the art of transformation

“I met Mark during a difficult time when everything in my life was unknown and volatile. Through several sessions I was able to utilise the guidance provided to eventually find my way through the unknown and come out a much happier and successful person. A great professional with a charming personality, he made our sessions something I looked forward to. His therapy and coaching experience enabled me to implement changes throughout my life both on a professional and personal level. Mark played a key part in rebuilding my confidence and no doubt I wouldn’t have gotten where I am now without him. Mark is incredible at what he does!” Hayley O’Neill

Why choose me?

My I.M.P.A.C.T. Model, developed since 2005 and with thousands of clients, can help you to achieve your Personal and/or Professional Transformation. The 6 stages of my I.M.P.A.C.T. model address the non-negotiable stages of change we all must go through if we are to overcome our difficulties and achieve our challenges. As a result, you will never be lost on your journey and will always know the way to your destination.

My ability to provide both therapy and coaching means I can safely support you through difficult and challenging periods and then, when you are in a good place, enable you to complete your journey of Personal and/or Professional Transformation. In simple terms, working with me will enable you to be more and do more in life.

I have extensive therapeutic experience working with a range of mental health conditions and wellbeing issues: stress & anxiety/anxiety disorders, panic attacks, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, trauma, anger, depression, relationships, addictions/obsessions/compulsions and professional issues encountered at work. As a coach I have experience working with people across many areas of their Personal and Professional Transformation, such as confidence-building, raising self-esteem and developing assertiveness. I have specific interests working with problem eating (mild-to-moderate, not Eating Disorders) and supporting the mental health and wellbeing of people in business/business owners.

I have a strong belief in myself as a practitioner. One of the best if not THE best predictor for successful outcomes in therapy is the belief a therapist has in themselves and their approach. Research suggests that clients need their therapist to have these high levels of belief if they are to overcome their own difficulties.

Personalised support, not a one-size-fits-all approach

My I.M.P.A.C.T. model has been designed to meet your individual needs and circumstances, be they Personal and/or Professional in nature. I make you the boss in our sessions which means from the first session you get to shape our work together in a way that suits you - not me. In other words I don't offer a one-size-fits-all approach but will work collaboratively with you to find the combination of approaches that are right for you.

And because you're the boss you get to offer me feedback throughout our time together so that: I know what is or isn't working, whether we are on track or not and what I need to do more or less of to ensure you get what you came for.

As someone with both therapeutic and coaching experience I often work with people who start off in periods of difficulty and challenge but who then shift their focus to creating a meaningful and fulfilling life both at home and at work.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a coach I trained with The Performance Coach and I am a European Mentoring & Coaching Council Accredited Practitioner. I also belong to the EMCC UK Academic Members Forum which promotes the use of coaching in Higher Education.

In addition to running my own business Conversartions With Impact, I work as a student therapist and coach in Higher Education and as an executive coach working in business. I have also worked as a therapist and coach in the Employee Assistance Industry, providing therapy and coaching to employees and consultancy to employers.

I have been in practise as both a therapist and coach since 2005. My original training is in The Human Givens Approach, a versatile approach with applications across coaching, business, education, therapy and many other areas of society. The Human Givens Approach combines its own ideas with other effective forms of therapy such as CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, metaphor & storytelling.

In addition to the EMCC, I am Accredited with the Human Givens Institute and the National Counselling Society. I am on the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers for both the Human Givens Institute and the National Counselling Society.

Before training as a therapist and coach I worked as a Mental Health Advocate for the mental health charity MIND and prior to that in business for The Telegraph Group as a Strategic Planner in advertising and marketing.

N.B. I work with young people 18+

Other areas of coaching I deal with

My experience as a therapist and coach in business/industry means I also have a good understanding of many work-based issues and concerns. As a student counsellor and coach in Higher Education I have extensive experience in supporting both undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout their time at university.

My overall experience in education, business and private practice have given me many opportunities to work with both young people (18+yrs) and adults presenting with attachment disorders and family problems, eating disorders, specific learning difficulties, disability and sexuality.

I am happy to work and share what I know with people, but will also be clear where my training and experience is limited. If I can't help I will be clear about this and do my very best to signpost you to a service that can.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
