OYOP Originator 

Ashley Bookman designed the programme Optimising Your Own Performance to enable people to take far greater responsibility for their own mental health and to provide ways to achieve the goals you desire. 

Throughout his career Ashley has maintained a personal commitment to facilitate people in achieving sustainable peace of mind and make the most of their lives. He has worked with people ranging from FTSE 100 CEOs wrestling with organisational problems to people suffering from stress, trauma or depression who are struggling to find a way forward. 

Ashley has spent 30 years working with thousands of people and has established that the majority of mental stresses can be largely resolved by understanding and evolving the paradigms and thinking habits which originally made the situations seem stressful.
