Trusted International Mental Health focused Teacher, Speaker, Mentor & Coach

I am an internationally accredited and experienced Mindfulness/Meditation teacher, Psychotherapist, Emotional Intelligence Lead and Tibetan Buddhist of Kagyu and Nyingma lineage with locations and courses in the UK, Europe and Australia. I have had the opportunity to learn from a wide variety of incredible teachers over the 11+ years I have been learning and practising, from both Secular and Non-Secular backgrounds.


Whilst I am a student of buddhism, I am not a monk or really religious in anyway. I Coach, Teach, Mentor and Speak from a human angle rather than anything that would be considered religious.  I don’t pretend to have discovered anything that I teach or explore. I am proud to say that everything I have learned and discuss have come at the hard work of many others. I teach, coach and mentor to share my journey out of failure, chronic depression, acute anxiety disorder and the fear created by the stigma that is still the baggage of many poor mental health sufferers… Importantly the joy and completeness you can feel when you have that control back. 


I use some of the incredible teachings I have learned from some incredibly gifted people on the inner workings of the mind, as well as evidence based practises of Western Mindfulness, Human Givens and Emotional Intelligence to help bring a more rounded Mental Health experience for you and your staff.


Their teachings have offered me real lasting insight into the wider practise, importantly how to integrate everything I have learned into a life that involves being a  father to 3 children, husband and running 3 separate businesses.


Awareful was founded to help give me the platform to continue the work, in fact my purpose, like many others in developing awareness around mental health, its importance, what it is and how to manage it more effectively, everywhere you are.

What I offer are simple teachings and tips for everyday people


We do that through:

Emotional Intelligence Workshops, Mindfulness Classes, Meditation Classes, Mental Health focused 1 to 1’s, Talks & Workshops on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, UK, & Jersey  Mindfulness Courses and Mental Health Courses

Recent Testimonials...

The course went really well for me. My confidence has grown in both areas and I feel really motivated to keep going, as I really believe now that this can help me.

Dan is a fantastic teacher, he’s very warm and puts people at ease, I have done a few mindfulness courses through the years and his teaching is head and shoulders above them. He explains everything in simple terms, and he is always happy to answer questions. Plus enthusiasm is very infectious.


The foundation course has helped me a lot with anxiety related issues – I think having Dan as my teacher has also helped tremendously which is why I have already signed up to another course as want to carry on with the practice.

I think Dan is an amazing teacher with so much empathy and kindness – he provides great guidance and patience and everyone I know who has been to his classes say the same and go on to recommend his classes to others.


Dan is a really gifted meditation teacher, and he has a natural ability to guide you through the meditation and explain the concept of mindfulness and meditation with a very experienced and transparent outlook. I have a much clearer understanding of both mindulness and meditation and feel I have learnt the tools to help me practice more regularly. I am particular grateful for having all the guided meditations recorded and available for when I need them.
