Paul Sheppard, the self-proclaimed Life Doctor, discusses the mind management techniques that he uses to help people suffering from anxiety and other mental health problems

Why did you decide to call yourself Life Doctor?

I didn’t start off with this is as my business name, at first I went with Eating the Dark, which I thought was very clever but actually just left people scratching their heads. I then used Paul Sheppard Therapy, but that didn’t do well either, so a er some soul-searching I looked at what I really did which was helping people heal their minds to have better lives. ’The Life Doctor seemed to capture what I did very nicely and it stayed.

How did you get into life coaching?

I was drawn to counselling due to suffering badly with anxiety myself; I wanted to understand it so I could get rid of it. I came from an area of Bristol where being gay was a definite no-no and I suffered from the inner struggle of trying to be normal : obviously that went badly and didn’t work. I spent the next decade seeking education that would have an impact on anxiety; sadly most approaches didn’t really work. Now I feel very lucky to have explored and blended parts of therapies together, which, when combined, have a strong impact in helping create change.

About Winq

The latest issue of the newly relaunched Winq features an exclusive interview with AFC Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, the first Premier League manager to go on the record and say he’d be happy to have a gay footballer in his team. Elsewhere, there are interviews with French film director François Ozon, award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, Olympic dressage rider Spencer Wilton, and Gigi Chao, the Hong Kong lesbian whose father offered millions to any man who could turn her straight. We travel to Japan and Mexico, report on what life is like for LGBT+ people in Ghana, and explore the reasons behind the rising popularity of the far right amongst gay men in France. Packed with insightful commentary from a newly expanded panel of columnists, Winq is the journal for gay gentlemen by Attitude.
