Areas of Work

The core principle of my model of work lies in combining two key areas of thought: Existentialism and Science. (Further reading – Existentialism and Science). With Existentialism I pay attention to, focus upon and appreciate each individual’s unique experience of life. An experience that can only be known by living it. With science I check thoroughly my observations and seek confirmation of cause and effect. While working I try and build and organizes knowledge to form testable explanations and predictions.

Most people from time to time can find living; stressful, emotionally disturbing or confusing. Whether one is suffering from depression, alcohol addiction, drug addiction, physical ill health, workplace  stress, coping with anxiety, bullying at school or other organisation or work place, college, or whether one is experiencing a crisis in a personal relationship; marriage breakdown and divorce. In these situations – and in many others – I am able to offer a wide range of ideas and interventions –  to individuals, children,adolescents and adults –  couples, and families.
