Mark is an experienced therapist and a gifted trainer and speaker who regularly writes on psychology with a difference. UncommonHelp is his self help guide website.
Mark is the co-founder of Hypnosis Downloads, the leading provider of hypnosis downloads, with over 800 self help audio sessions on every kind of psychological issue. Each session is scrupulously researched, carefully crafted, and professionally recorded. A constant stream of testimonials bears witness to the consistently high quality of his work.
Mark is also co-founder and Creative Director of Uncommon Knowledge and helped establish a highly regarded diploma course in evidence-based hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. He has trained thousands of therapists.
A keen promoter of the benefits of online training, Mark has worked to put all Uncommon Knowledge therapy training programs online. He is constantly developing new courses. He has produced several hypnosis DVDs and CDs and taster videos. Mark writes a therapy techniques blog with his thoughts on psychology training (and everything else).
The specific problems of dealing with depression led Mark to develop a depression recovery program, a free website about depression, and an online training course for therapists on how to lift depression fast. He’s also behind another free self help guide website for panic attacks and helped to set up Uncommon Forum, now a leading mental health discussion forum.
Mark frequently gives public seminars to health professionals on self-esteem, trauma and bullying, and is co-author (with Jan Sutton) of The Giant Within. He regularly contributes illuminating and thought provoking psychology articles on a range of sites.
Before he started all this, Mark worked as a psychiatric nurse. So he’s seen it all.
When he has a free half hour he runs.
