Glyn began training as a psychiatric nurse in 1992 despite loving horticulture and acting (he’s a very good singer too). But something about the mind, the brain and working with people very closely drew him to a career in mental health. During this, he fell in love with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and eventually went all in for this methodology and eventually met Dr. Rick Norris.
His professional relationship with Rick grew and by now Glyn was also a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist but remained registered as a nurse (still does).
