Meet our Key Associates
MBA is made up of a team of specialists with complimentary skills in the area of psychological wellbeing.
Our main benefit is our ability to call upon the very unique skill sets of the following consultants, all of whom are widely recognised as experts in their individual fields.
The director of MBA, Mark, has worked all over the world providing psychological support; he has worked in the foremost practises in the public, private and charitable sectors. Originally working with disadvantaged children in the UK Mark gained a place on a specialist training programme in America and went on to work throughout the USA.
He spent six years working and developing his professional practise with the NHS before returning to America to study at Colby College. On his return he again worked for the NHS before volunteering to a six month programme with MSF training psychologists in Tsunami affected Indonesia.
He set up MBA to support a specific clientele that, through his experience working with blue chip clients in law, air transport, sports and industry, he recognised as requiring a unique approach defined by their influential positions. He is presently conducting a major piece of Doctoral research into Applied Positive Psychology and Obesity.
“Working with a diverse range of clients, responding to their needs, understanding the unique issues that arise from their positions and being able to develop the positive relationships that promote change continues to drive my practise. I gain great satisfaction and positivity from my work and each challenge is welcomed as part of my ongoing desire to open up psychological health, demystify the process and dispel the fear that surrounds emotional issues”.
