I am in the business of professional development education and provide scientific based training in emotional intelligence, deception detection and other advanced people reading and communication skills to individuals and organisations where obtaining credible and truthful information is critical to their decision making and results and they have a desire to improve management of their emotions and wellbeing.

  • I believe the most important asset a person can have is ‘themselves’ and in an increasingly competitive world, ongoing personal growth and self development is vital and a necessary investment to ensure both success and general wellbeing.
  • I see education in emotional intelligence increasingly key in improving wellbeing as it benefits not only the individual, but has been proven to make good financial and strategic sense for businesses and organisations, regardless of the industry or occupation.
  • Empirical research is consistently revealing that wellbeing is a marker for success and accomplishment. Companies are increasingly looking for employees who communicate well with others and work well on teams. When people are more effective and impactful communicators, happy and have a sense of purpose, they are more productive and thrive in all aspects of their lives.
  • Being exposed to misinformation, incorrect facts and deception is a part of everyone’s daily lives whether they like it or not – of course, not all deception is harmful such as innocent and well meaning white lies/low stake lies. Deception detection involves multi-disciplinary science, unfortunately there remains many myths around the subject and various resources and information out in the public domain which are inaccurate.
  • I am on a mission to expose these myths, demystify the psychology behind deception, unravel human behaviour and provide practical tools to help you get to the truth.
  • Whether you’re a CEO managing a small or large staff, a Director, a Manager or Supervisor, a small business owner, entrepreneur or employee, we are here to help you to navigate emotions, truth and lies with greater accuracy to help you make even better people and business decisions with the people you encounter and interact with in your life.

The Mind Hush Group

My focus is sharing what I know about behavioural science and help you navigate behaviour and the emotional landscape. The focus is on YOU, and how I can help you develop yourself by leveling up your interpersonal and people reading skills.

My specialised training is based on psychology, neuroscience, sociology and behavioural economics.

Constantly looking to the scientific community, industry and academia for the most relevant empirical research and latest developments, I bring together over 30 years’ of experience in corporate communications across multiple sectors and international markets, blended with what I know the science tells us, providing you with the skills, knowledge, tools and strategies to assess the emotional states and underlying motives of other people.

The skills will help you to read people with greater accuracy on how they are feeling and the techniques then applied in day to day life. They will also help you better understand what drives your own behaviour and emotions and how you can manage them with more control.

My goal is to share the existing and proven science with you, so you can use the training constructively in the relationships you have with other people.

Why the business was launched

The business was launched as I recognised that there was an increasing need to educate others in the growing field of emotional intelligence and deception science, with the goal of helping people understand themselves and others on a deeper level, become master communicators, and make more informed decisions to achieve greater success in their lives.

I share my knowledge and expertise through online consultancy and training courses, and from time to time, in-house session, public masterclasses, seminars and keynote presentations to:

  • Help others understand what drives human behaviour and the science behind it to improve their lives, wellbeing and levels of success;
  • Clarify the many myths and incorrect information pertaining to deceptive behaviour and lie detection techniques;
  • Help educate people put their bias aside in the judgment of others before knowing all the facts and situational context;
  • Identify and read the concealed emotions of others through verbal and non-verbal behaviour communication channels;
  • Help people make better business and people decisions from the people and organisations they encounter to mitigate emotional and financial ramifications the deceptive behaviour of others can potentially cause.
