About me

“What a truly empowering experience! I started the sessions with Mark feeling very unsure and unconfident with where I was heading in my professional life. I knew I wasn’t happy with where I was and needed clarity with where I wanted to go. After only a few sessions, I felt confident to take action as Mark coached me through how to envisage my goals and steer towards them. I took something to work on from each session. Mark listened and encouraged me not to sweat the small stuff, leading me on to making big changes in my career. I now feel much more in control of my career and am on a much more fulfilling pathway. Not so scared about what might happen next, I’ve taken a step in the direction I want and with Mark’s coaching can already feel the impact this is having on me, both personally and professionally. Thank you Mark; a pleasure to work with.” Heena

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.

“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 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

With my approach, you will always be the boss in your sessions and get to shape your support in ways that work for you. I will not impose a one-size-fits-all approach but tailored support for your own specific needs and circumstances. While I will suggest ideas and ways of working based on my judgement and experience, the overall approach will be collaborative. And as the boss, you get to give me feedback on what is working for you and anything you would like to change.

As someone with both therapeutic and coaching experience, I often work with people who start therapy and then move into coaching. Their focus shifts from overcoming their difficulties to creating a meaningful and fulfilling life both at home and at work.

You can read about my professional approach in my book 'How to transform your life with IMPACT: Unlock the best of you', which comes out on July 15th 2021.

“When I first met Mark, my life was like a mess and I could not face the changes that I had in my life (changing the environment as I moved from the UK to Iraq, and change in my personal life status to be a mum with a little boy and carrying his responsibilities alone). Mark was the coach who supported me to be a strong person to face all these difficulties in a calm way with self-esteem, self- peace, and to appreciate myself (always). I learnt lots of strategies to deal with difficulties in life and all bad experiences with a hopeful future. Now, I am achieving my goals in life with a smile on my face and I am the person that I would love to be. Really appreciated these sessions. Honestly, I would highly recommend contacting him for life coaching as he is a highly skilled coach in his field.” Dhuha

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.
