Training and presentation

I am an associate member of Restorego, a training agency that uses personal change management to ‘restore the battered ego from within’ and help individuals, groups and communities to develop and maintain positive and healthier lifestyles.


I offer training and workshops in the following subjects:        

Media and press relations

Basic and advanced HIV/AIDS information

HIV counselling

Experiential personal growth workshops

Since going self employed I have trained and presented for the following organisations:

Boehringer Ingelheim - Media training

Coca-Cola - HIV and AIDS awareness for employers

National African HIV Prevention Programme (NAHIP) - Media Training 

The Media Trust - Communicating with ethnic minorities through the press

The Young Presidents' Association - The economics of HIV drug development

CHAPS (the Community HIV and Aids Prevention Strategy) - Pre-exposure Prophylaxis

I hope to expand all these areas of work and also combine my therapy and groupwork skills with my HIV knowledge by moving more into training

I am currently discussing a series of training workshops for patients in HIV drug resistance in collaboration with HIV resistance experts.

I am also an experienced media spokesperson and communicator, having appeared as editor of Positive Nation for BBC TV (Newsnight), ITV News, Radio 5 Live, LBC Newstalk, Spectrum Radio, the 13th London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and various independent channels


In the past I ran training workshops for the Immune Development Trust and PACE in HIV/AIDS awareness and counselling

Between 1992 and 1998 I helped to devise and facilitate some of the Gay Men's Weeks at Laurieston Hall run by the Edward Carpenter Community. These are week-long residential personal growth experiences for gay men seeking alternative ways of relating. This culminated in a structured week on spirituality and shamanism, the 'Week of Wonders', in 1998.

I have also run workshops for the 'Alchemy' weeks run by Positively Healthy.
