I was a police officer for 18 years before leaving to become a Hypnotherapist and trainer. With my wife Rebecca I launched the Quest Institute in 2000, the first school in the world training people to be Cognitive Hypnotherapists - the approach I developed. It is now the largest organisation of its type.
I was editor of the Hypnotherapy Journal for 9 years and served on the committee of the national Council for Hypnotherapy for a further five years as Director of Supervision and Ethics.
In addition to running training courses and writing I also have a private practice in Harley Street.
In my spare time I love walking with my wife and miniature Schnauzers Betty and Fred, reading and fitness training.
