I am a disciple of Christ, psychiatrist, spiritual teacher and fellow life struggler who has spent many years helping first myself and then a huge variety of people navigate through the complexities of life to lasting peace, success and satisfaction.
I am of British Asian origin and have a wide appreciation of diverse cultures and traditions. I am privileged to be married to Sally, and we are blessed with four children. I trained as a medical doctor and have worked as a consultant psychiatrist in the British National Health Service since 2001, primarily in the area of mental illness and learning disabilities. I have always been curious about personal growth, and why it is that some individuals and teams can dramatically excel in their performance and well being, while others in broadly similar circumstances will stagnate or plateau.
In 1984 I had a life-changing encounter with the person of Jesus Christ, who is the foundation of everything I do. You can watch a short 15 minute video of my spiritual journey here. These experiences have led me to a deeper understanding of the importance of personal growth, along with the central importance of leadership to achievement in any endeavour, both personal and professional. I have provided on-line training resources to the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the areas of stress management, burnout prevention and leadership. I have also been an accredited facilitator within the NHS for the Franklin Covey organisation in their training programme on leadership, as well as providing regular training to a Bible Institute in New Delhi, India since 2005, on principles in leadership.
My spiritual and personal development exploration has profoundly influenced my understanding of what it means to be a positive influence for good in the world. I am convinced that each one of us has a unique God-given potential and purpose. Finding the sweet spot where we can passionately live out our purpose to meet a deep need in the world, whether it be dramatic or hidden from the limelight, is what we are all called to.
