Besides considerable exposure to Tavistock group relations training, full immersion into the extraordinary flexibility and power of  Ericksonian approaches rounded out and complemented a substantial  body of technical and applications expertise.  This  provided a refreshing change of perspective and  personal development in depth  followed by a natural transition to full-time therapeutic work. I  have been a full-time Ericksonian Psychotherapy practitioner, incorporating other perspectives and methodologies for nearly three decades.

My overall experience has enabled me to develop a combination of acute observational skills, clarity of  thought and analysis, an inventive and tenacious problem-solving capability plus an intuitive sensitivity and creativity in addressing people's problems.

I hope these skills and capabilities are evident in the thoroughness, efficiency and sensitivity with which I approach my work.
