About

Is life requiring you to make a big change? Have you lost a loved one through death, divorce, or in some other way? Or, do you have to “move on,” but you are not sure how? Perhaps your career has come to a standstill? You know that it is time for a change? The children have moved out? What lies ahead? Or perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with an illness and it’s time to deal with some big questions? How to proceed from here? Perhaps you are just a guy and don’t know what to do with all the feelings and events in your life? Or you’re someone suffering stress and burnout? You've been through too much, seen too much, lost too much?
Now that you are facing issues you did not want to deal with ever before. Instead of “coping” with the problem with all your might, is it your time to go deeper and resolve issues long term? If you are willing, I will do my best to help you address the matters turning your life upside down, and help you to re-establish calm and find a way forward.
I’ve been described as a gentle teddy bear. That may not be everyone’s cuppa coffee/cigarette, but I’ll offer you a kind space where hopefully you will be comfortable and safe enough to say anything you want to say and find the way through everything that you wish to explore. So, please don’t be afraid to contact me. I would love to hear from you.
