I offer a free 30 minute non therapeutic conversation to help you decide if I might be the right counsellor for you.Please visit my website if you would like to know more.

This can result in clients moving forward with their lives in a fuller more positive way.
Currently overseas (mostly Asia and Africa) more than 6 months each year. I know the challenges of suddenly being completely without language and going from a life of general mastery to general cluelessness, from having a big supportive community to having no one and starting from scratch.
