was born and raised in Manchester, England and had an interest in people and their views on life from a very early age. After reading his first psychology BSc (Hons) degree at Cardiff University between 1996 and 2000 he felt there was something missing from the psychology literature so he explored complementary medicine and achieved several diplomas in Holistic Medicine. Mark became qualified in Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Deep tissue massage, Stress Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Indian Head Massage, Diet and Nutrition and Counselling in 2001.
Mark was then enticed back to University by the dynamic Professor Amanda Griffiths and the renowned Professor Tom Cox, who pioneered a new Masters course at the University of Nottingham. The Institute of Work Health and Organisations (I-WHO), Nottingham provided the first course in the world integrating health and occupational psychology. Mark understood that to truly make a change in the world one must effect the place where most people spend a majority of their time......work! He completed his Masters in Occupational Health Psychology in 2002, writing a dissertation on the effects of light on levels of satisfaction and well being at an ccell phone company call centre.
It is Mark's ultimate desire to push forward the boundaries of modern psychological and physiological understanding of integrated health and wellbeing. With a traditional and non traditional scientific training he has the ability to bridge the gap between science and spirituality, connecting the dots of all maverick scientists and healers with those of a more traditional nature for the advancement of Humanity.
