... is to bring about deep transformation, in a way that leads to long lasting and ongoing change in the quality of a man's life.
Every session of counselling or coaching should be impactful - you should leave at the end of each session feeling different, acting differently, or with a clear skill or new knowledge that will make a real difference.
In more than 20 years of counselling, I have found that it is not enough to provide just a sympathetic ear and some good advice. I have studied everything from traditional counselling and mainstream psychology, through life coaching, hypnosis and NLP, through more unusual approaches such as gestalt, narrative therapy and bioenergetics, to transpersonal psychology and shamanism. I have always searched for what is truly effective, for the things that really make a difference.
I have forged a unique and powerful approach to the treatment of stress, anxiety and depression that starts from the assumption that you can get better. Low self esteem, lack of confidence, lack of assertiveness can be dealt with. A passionate and purposeful life, filled with joy and meaning, is the outcome. Relationships filled with playful intimacy and meaningful communication become a reality.
