“Whether they are functioning professionals, brain injury survivors or mentally ill prison inmates, Bridge calls into question the dogma of self-delusion at the broken heart of Western society. The Significance Delusion presents revolutionary implications for human development.”

Lotje Sodderland, Filmmaker and Director, ‘My Beautiful Broken Brain’ (Netflix, 2016)

“I have never written to an author before, but I am halfway through your book “The Significance Delusion” and just wanted to say thank you – it makes sense of people and the way they work like no other book I’ve ever come across and has made me think about the way I behave and the way I treat others. It has been a real eye-opener and I very much look forward to reading the rest.”

Practical help to get the most from your brain whatever the challenge

I have worked as a teacher, a lecturer, an addiction therapist (in both private practice and the NHS), an executive coach, and a Resilience Consultant.

These roles may sound worlds apart, but in all of them the parts played by brain and language development are all important. The focus of my work is on the way brain development and the use of language affect an individual’s behaviour and communications.

I base all my work on the latest scientific evidence and prioritise personally tailored, practical, advice skills and strategies above theories and models of treatment.

Now working as a Psycholinguistic Consultant, I see personal clients in Surrey and in Harley Street, London. They come for help with behavioural problems – including addictions – for help with communications problems, and for relationship counselling.

Nationwide, I also provide:-

Executive services:

Training for team building purposes

Coaching for personal career success

Educational services:

Resilience presentations for conferences and for individual schools

Resilience training for staff, parents and students

I have proven success in helping develop more:

responsive minds, integrated teams, resourceful students;

and in creating much greater resilience and happiness for all.
