Information about Dean
I trained as a psychotherapist and worked for 30 years with addiction, well being and recovery and then became a tutor. I have worked with over 90 students achieving 2/1`s and 1sts at Imperial, Kings, LSE, UCL, City, Goldsmiths, Regents, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway; as my focus is on scaffolding their confidence.
I offer excellence at Doctorate, Masters and Undergraduate level. Therefore, when students come to me I offer them a complete service in order to build their potential.
Therapeutically trained I can work around anxiety, depression, trepidation and low self esteem. I am used to working with students from North Africa, Middle East, Russia and China for example and so understand some of the challenges around the cultural issues students face.
In terms of myself I worked as a CEO in the wider world as well as being an academic. My published doctorate became a clinical psychology book focusing on violence with
examiners being Tim Newburn (LSE) and Paul Willis (Harvard) - I am therefore a specialist in

I was educated at Edinburgh, Kings and Goldsmiths amongst others in a variety of disciplines ranging from Psychology, Sociology. History, Philosophy and I have 4 degrees ranging from a Doctorate to an Undergraduate Degree.
Formerly I taught at a wide variety of universities teaching a number of subjects - Development Studies (SOAS), Addiction Studies (LSBU, Medical Degree (Kings), Forensic Psychology (LSBU(.
My books deal with film studies, politics, sociology, psychology, social policy, criminology along with art and culture. Prior to this I was a CEO of a Hep C/HIV agency, developed the arrest referral, set up the first BAME therapeutic services, GP shared care, first women`s substance use services, and a whole variety of innovations.
Overall I undertook work over 30 years with marginalised people and this led to the publication of four books and numerous articles where I also gained an insight into international development and politics which were incorporated into the publications.

Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have three degrees, a post grad teacher cert, a specialism in young people, an NVQ Level 4 in management and my qualifications derived from being a psychotherapist.

My principal aim was to improve my English and discuss a range of interesting topics in psychology while staying in London for 5 days. Dean proved to be a stimulating and inspiring tutor with a profound knowledge in his fields of interest. I enjoyed our lively daily discussions a lot and was able to expand my English considerably. Besides that I got many helpful suggestions for further readings. Thanks a lot. I can highly recommend Dean.
