Apples for the Mind

Creating emotional balance, peak performance & lifelong wellbeing
My Story

I didn't make it as a racing driver, so I became a black belt in karate and then a psychologist and professional speaker. Even today, I want to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone to reach more exciting, expanding horizons. More than anything, I get joy out of teaching others how to expand theirs.

My new book Apples for the Mind is the result of years of work helping people to overcome challenges and discover the foundation of their quality of life: wellbeing. The two most misunderstood aspects of wellbeing are psychological skills and the link between wellbeing and performance. In Apples for the Mind, I address these misunderstandings by revealing 20 true things you need to know in order to create emotional balance, peak performance and lifelong wellbeing.
