Alan is a professional motivational speaker, mentalist and mind coach.
He is an NLP Trainer and Transpersonal Therapist who has been actively involved in esoteric traditions and teachings since he was a teenager, In terms of academic background he holds a BSc in Earth Sciences and, after a change of career path some 25 years ago, has gained a PhD in psychology; professional qualifications in counselling, hypnotherapy and NLP.

As a Mentalist, Alan has worked consistently since becoming a professional and to this work he brings his interest in mystical teachings and his experience as an ‘intuitive reader’. Unlike some magicians and mentalists, Alan is totally at ease with the idea of ‘intuition’ and the reality of what he calls ‘total sensory perception’. As he would say, “there are numerous ways of thinking about the realities we experience. There is the object/rational view wherein the focus is on consensus, measurable and empirical evidence and the subjective/personal wherein the individual creates personal meaning from their experience.” He argues that a Rational Mystic approach to life allows you to be truly open and ask better questions.
Alan is a broadcaster with a weekly show on Penwith Community Radio and syndicated radio shows in the UK, USA and Canada. As a mind coach he is an Accredited De Bono Thinking Skills Consultant and Educational Coach who works with businesses, individuals and community projects.
