Doug is an experienced workshop facilitator, coach, lecturer and psychotherapist. He has been involved in personal development work for almost 20 years.

He combines an eclectic mix of science based interventions, with a warm, relaxed training room that allows delegates space to find their own answers. This is supported by the use of clever training tools that trigger ideas and build confidence. He has developed innovative pressure and wellbeing management workshops, as well as advanced communication dynamics courses through to graduate programmes.

Doug specialises in Wellbeing & Mental Health, Line Management, Leadership, Strategic Thinking, Project Management and Personal Impact. He developed the Aspire Wellbeing programme, distilling 40 years experience into a concentrated one day programme.

Doug has worked with a range of clients including Save the Children, Thoughtworks, Office of National Statistics, London Fire & Rescue HQ, BMW2012 Olympics, The Welsh Government and The Royal Society with participants across the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East and USA in English.

He holds a Masters in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy from Roehampton University, is a member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a member of the EMDR Association (specialist trauma organisation).

Doug has taught on the Counselling Psychology undergraduate programme at Roehampton University and guest lectures on the Masters programme as a trauma specialist. He also still runs a busy clinical practice in southwest London. He has delivered advocacy work and training to the Fire Service, Social Services, the ARMY, the Police and most commercial organisations.

Doug still loves to mix it up on his Pioneer CDJ decks (and do the odd party now and then), losing himself in his gardening on a Saturday afternoon and having a lazy afternoon at the local Prince of Wales in Putney.
