Doug is an experienced workshop facilitator, coach, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. He has been involved in personal development work since 1987.
His specialism is polishing personal effectiveness, getting team relationship on tip-top form and getting the very best creatively from a brand and its people.
Doug’s 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 worked for many corporates both in a workshop setting and as an individual coach to senior staff. He has developed innovative pressure management workshops and advanced communication dynamics courses for large corporations and senior executives. This includes BMW (he assisted with their London 2012 Olympic Project management Team), BNP Paribas London (house trainer for past 4 years) and UKTV (house trainer for past 3 years).
Doug runs deep immersion week-long personal development training for the Fire Service across the South of England & Wales. This deals with everything from working with children from disadvantaged families to managing team dynamics and brainstorming new creative strategies to cope with the ever changing demands of this sector.
He has worked with participants across the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East and USA in English.
Doug background in the music business as a creative and commercial director of two record labels (1992-2000) allows him to balance both the insurgent creative spark with cast-iron business acumen – a fundamental requirement of any change process. This has allowed him personally to enjoy three careers, firstly in biochemistry for Glaxo, secondly in the music business and latterly as a facilitator, coach, trainer and psychotherapist.
He has a busy west London clinical hypnosis practice and works on the psychiatric unit at the Priory Hospital London. He is also a member of the BACP and the British Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists.
Doug still loves to mix it up on his Pioneer CDJ decks (and do the odd party now and then), loosing himself in his gardening on a Saturday afternoon and having a lazy afternoon at the local Prince of Wales in Putney.
