I am endlessly curious about human nature and why people do the things that they do. That’s why I became a psychologist, to understand human behaviour, particularly in complex high-consequence situations. Rather than just viewing human behaviour as an abstract set of theories, I chose to step into those complex high-consequence situations and experience their reality for myself.
As a result of my choices, I have worked professionally as a North Sea oil-rig roughneck, mountain guide, session musician, fashion photographer, commercial pilot, military psychologist, relationship counsellor, child psychologist, celebrity psychologist and technology entrepreneur.
Although these may appear to be quite diverse professional roles (or the result of a short attention span), they are united by my fundamental fascination with human nature and my continuing research into how people find meaning, purpose and potential in the work that they do.
The work I do with dreams forms a fundamental part of my psychology practice. It has proven to be one of the healthiest and most natural ways of developing those human superpowers of self-awareness and situational awareness. My work with dreams is focused on the practical application of our night-time dreams as a positive and healthy method to help us achieve our waking life dreams and ambitions.
This practical approach has led to regular appearances on television and radio around world, and becoming the best-selling author of The Top 100 Dreams: The Dreams That We All Have And What They Really Mean and The Complete A to Z Dictionary of Dreams: Be Your Own Dream Expert.
