He has experience working in private practice, NGO and correctional environments and has dealt with a broad range of client population types and presenting problems.

New Clients and BWRT® training

Please note that I am not currently taking on new clients and I do not use a waitlist.

I no longer provide BWRT® training. To find BWRT® training, go to www.bwrt.org. 


I primarily work in my Private Practice on Fridays. Therefore, while I endeavour to respond to email or phone queries as soon as I can, there may be a delayed response at times.
