"I offer a flexible solution-focused approach drawing from a range of psychological, philosophical and neuroscientific models, tailored specifically to your needs. I also incorporate a simple educational approach into my work, around what is happening in the brain and nervous system, when painful experiences from the past are triggered by events in the present. I feel that an awareness of what is happening in the mind, body and emotions is productive in helping someone move beyond persistent, negative patterns to a more fulfilling life."
