About Me


Thanks for visiting. As this is my personal site, there is not much here, however feel free to look around.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland I live about 20 minutes from the City Centre. Many people get confused however, because I have a non-regional accent, as I lived in Cheshire and Sussex when I was a wee lad. It wouldn't take you too long to guess that I have an interest in cars. Also remember, please don't take anything I say too seriously, as I am not always as serious as you might think!

I have spent many years running my own businesses and this has taken me on an interesting life journey of learning and experiences. Meeting people in different settings and with different needs is both challenging and fulfilling.

Additionally I volunteer several hours a week helping CSA and cult survivors. I also am invited to speak publicly around the UK on these subjects.

"Happy Survivor"

You may be wondering what I mean by that, well we all have our own story to tell and there are many who've had it worse than me. I survived child sexual abuse and recently saw my abuser sentenced, and am also a cult survivor. I have mental scars from both these which at times plague me, but for the most part can proudly say I have survived. [Read More]

I am also working my way to becoming a Thriver [read more]

Undue Influence


Worldwide, millions of people are encouraged to act against their own better interests, without even knowing it; they are encouraged to behave a certain way through the application of undue influence, a technique which is widely used and commonly overlooked.

How would you spot undue influence? There are common features that demonstrate undue influence, which usually co-exist.

Phrases such as:

"We have the truth"

"I cannot communicate with you any longer"

"You can't trust outsiders"

Plus much more are indicators of undue influence. [Learn more here]

This includes organisations such Jehovah's Witnesses/Watchtower, Scientology or Mormon/Chuch of Latter Day Saints. If you are a member of any of these groups please do your research. For instance click on any of the following links to learn the facts that members of their respective groups won't tell you:

The Truth Project

So last week I was listened to by some lovely people at the Truth Project which is part of The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). I felt it was important to have my story listened to as IICSA is looking into where children have been failed in the past by organisations with a […]

Male Rape and Sexual Abuse

This is a subject close to my heart, being a survivor, working on being a thriver. I came across Survivors UK when searching online for help recently, although having seen my abuser sentenced and sent to prison, and having had therapy and counselling I still suffer with dark days and was looking for a little […]

JW Protest London

So this weekend I was in London, having booked my flights and accomodation months ago, not knowing quite what to expect. I was going for a protest along with what I was hoping would be a few more than just me, which is what had happened a few weeks previous when I went to the […]
