Andrew is a Personal Trainer and Wellness Coach. He founded FLOW with the intention of helping people to live better lifestyles and has worked within the industry for over 15 years, helping countless people to reach their goals. He became frustrated by what he saw as the negative side of the fitness and diet industries; The short-term results focus instead of the long-term, the unrealistic diets and the negative impact on people’s physical and mental health by forcing themselves to do things that in the long run are not good for you or sustainable.

He has recently spent some time working in Thailand at a world-famous wellness resort that is known for its holistic approach to wellness. This is where he had the vision for FLOW. He believes without doubt that true wellbeing comes from a healthy mind and healthy body working in unison. A combination of physical fitness, recovery, mindfulness, positive psychology, healthy relationships with food, fostering healthy relationships, and the prioritising of oneself in order to find balance.

His belief is creating programs for the individual without boxing them into a one size fits all approach.

Andrew holds multiple qualifications in fitness, behaviour change, and business. In combination with his experience and passion, he now aims to bring the concept of FLOW to the world and put the focus on to long lasting positive change. He has teamed up with other practitioners who are experts in their field but more importantly share his passion and to ensure that individual needs and goals can be catered for.

He enjoys travel and adventure, playing sports, learning, and at times kicking back and relaxing. Everything he promotes to his clients is also how he aims to live his own life. With freedom, purpose, but most importantly with passion. He is excited to bring Find a Life of Wellbeing to you and intends to help as many people as he can to changing their lives for the better and more importantly making those changes sustainable.

Dubai Counselling
Psychotherapist and Counselor (online)

Vicki

Qualifications:
- Diploma in Hypnotherapy
- Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
- Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society
- Accredited Member of the National Hypnotherapy Society
- Associate Member of the Royal College of Medicine

Vicki is our FLOW Therapist. She decided to embark upon her psychotherapeutic counselling training over 10 years ago after spending a year as a be-friender for the charity Tayside Cancer support, and truly wanted to work with individuals to enhance their well-being and assist them in navigating their emotions positively.

Since qualifying Vicki has been running her own private practice as a psychotherapeutic counsellor for seven years based in Dundee, Scotland. She utilises an integrative approach to fit the needs of the individual client and believes that combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy. She is very passionate about helping people self-invest. She challenges traditional psychology by utilising a more positive psychology framework which not only encapsulates mental health, but also emphasises physical well-being.

Vicki holds a certificate in gym instructing and enjoys regular fitness workouts, horse riding, swimming and competing with her horse. She also enjoys challenging herself, using the phrase ‘face a fear once a year’, and successfully faced a debilitating fear of heights in January 2020 by completing a skydive over the palm in Dubai. She loves to travel and has been lucky enough to visit many countries and have amazing experiences in doing so. Vicki also has a very keen interest in science, particularly planetary and space science.

Over the last four years Vicki has also been actively involved delivering workshops and lectures for a Scottish college covering aspects such as positive mindset, emotional intelligence, self-esteem, importance of sleep and very recently social media addiction. She has also delivered to local secondary schools and Scottish universities. She regularly collaborates with teaching/lecturing staff to offer solutions on behaviour and mindset change. Recently, Vicki took a part-time position within a Scottish college as a student counsellor to work with a team delivering effective counselling services to all students and staff.

Vicki was very excited to be asked to be part of the FLOW team, fully embracing the FLOW vision of wanting to work upon a healthy mind as well as a healthy body. Changing behaviours and creating healthy habits from a psychological perspective will allow you to achieve and sustain a greater well-being.
