I established Conversations With Impact because I feel strongly that therapy and coaching must have an impact and must make a difference.

Sounds obvious, doesn’t it? However, in my experience too many clients leave therapy and coaching no further forward and financially worse off.

“Mark really packs a punch and I mean this in the nicest possible way! I’d been in psychotherapy for months and prior to that CBT. I’d spent a lot of money on people who never once asked me what I wanted MY therapy to be like, whereas this was Mark’s starting point. He has real presence and a level of confidence in himself that meant our conversations DID have an impact. Mark made me the boss in our therapy, which meant that I got to shape it in a way that suited me, not him. He was collaborative, endlessly inventive and showed a level of belief in me that stays with me to this day.” Laura, Financial Director


In addition to running Conversations With Impact, I work as a student therapist and coach in Higher Education and as an executive coach working in business.

I trained with the Human Givens Institute in Human Givens Therapy and I am an Accredited Therapist of 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.

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.

Before training as a therapist and coach I worked for the mental health charity MIND and prior to that in business for The Telegraph Group as a Strategic Planner in advertising and marketing.

I am registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service (Enhanced).
