“Andy is an excellent practioner and manages to combine his holistic skills with his commercial background in an interesting way. Not only does he have a warm and engaging personality, but he has a very clear concept of how to provide wellbeing services in the commercial sector.”
The Hon. Richard Alston Australian High Commissioner to the UK (2005 to 2008)
“For me as a leader, I often think the struggle can be more important than the immediate outcome. I wanted my team to rise above tasks and list management and think about what is really required to be successful as a client facing team. Breathe London provided a bridge between results and individual and collective "wellbeing" and helped us see the balance between "doing" and" being”.
Eric Walker HR Director Hess Corporation, Exploration and Production
“We have worked in partnership with Breathe London since 2005, when they first set up and developed complementary health services at our Colombo Centre in Southwark. Their professional and creative approach has enabled them to grow the business from a ‘one man band’ to a large thriving operation and they add considerable value to our offer at the centre. Breathe are also great supporters of the local community and we have worked together on a number of charitable projects. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Phil Rumbelow Chief Executive, Jubilee Hall Trust
“Andy has been Chairman at YourStory for the last couple of years.
