Coach, psychologist, educator, researcher, marathon winner and published author.

As an HCPC-registered Practitioner Psychologist, I have coached and delivered workshops to a wide variety of people including elite sportspeople and their coaches, students and employees. Using tried and tested, scientifically-based theories, I support others to achieve their goals.

Wellbeing trainer

Over recent years, I’ve become fascinated by the scientific basis for the positive effects of wellbeing on the results we get at work and study. Work-life balance and wellbeing at work are highly topical issues that regularly hit the headlines.

My series of wellbeing workshops/courses are aimed specifically at those working and studying within an educational institution, a setting which I know and understand well.

My passions include my family, lifelong learning, wellbeing and fitness.

I have an energetic, friendly delivery style and a results-focused approach.

Word on the Street

“Dr Dan Bishop delivered an engaging and interesting session for my colleagues as part of a staff event on Health & Wellbeing.

Dan was the Keynote speaker to my department of c.150 staff, delivering a thought provoking and interactive discussion on Positive Psychology,   which was immensely well received by colleagues.

I would recommend Dan as a positive, engaging and challenging speaker for other events and activities.”

Jonathan Gray, Professional Tennis Player

“Thank you for delivering three excellent sessions around wellbeing. I thought they were pitched exactly right, with the right amount of depth and opportunity for self-reflection.

Personally, I really benefited from the sessions; I found them very positive with lots of constructive ideas for moving forward.”

Esther Bray, Projects Officer, Brunel University London




There’s a growing body of evidence which shows the positive effect that wellbeing has on organisations:

The report ‘Does Worker wellbeing affect workplace performance’ concludes ‘there is a prima facie case for employers to consider investing in the wellbeing of their employees on the basis of the likely performance benefits.’
