Gareth had always had a keen interest in the potential of people and has spent much of the past decade studying behavioural psychology, adult learning and cognitive therapy approaches. These interests led him to a career in corporate learning and development, consulting for large organisations like The Co-operative Group, Virgin and Hologic Inc. After qualifying as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in 2009, Gareth launched a private practice in Manchester and also worked as a Quest Institute coach for trainee therapists at Regents University in London.
As a keen martial artist, having trained for over 20 years, he’s experience first-hand the price and payoff of optimal performance. This also offered Gareth a gateway into male mental health and the taboos which surround it. As a result, he’s become a passionate speaker on the subject and sees an important part of his work to create a breakthrough in this space.
