Mark Tyrell is a therapist, trainer and speaker with over 20 years' experience who regularly writes on psychology with a difference. UncommonHelp is his self help guide website.
He trains therapy practitioners through Uncommon Knowledge's online classroom Uncommon U. He writes a therapy techniques blog with his thoughts on psychology, psychotherapy training and related topics, which more than 50,000 therapists, counsellors and psychologists receive every week by email.
Mark is also the co-founder of Hypnosis Downloads, the leading provider of hypnosis downloads, with over 1000 self help audio sessions on every kind of psychological issue. Each session is scrupulously researched, carefully crafted, and professionally recorded.
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 in 1998. He has trained thousands of therapists.
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 author of New Ways of Seeing, a book on reframing in therapy. 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 in a locked ward. So he’s seen it all.
