Email: DrRyanLee@DrRyanLee.com

About: Upon leaving Jehovah’s Witnesses at 18 y/o, I found therapy to be immensely helpful in rebuilding my life from the ground up. However, most therapists had little familiarity with the depth to which high-control religious conditioning penetrates the mind and soul. I often wished for someone who not only understood, but was equipped to help rewrite this unique brand of conditioning.

After earning my doctorate in clinical psychology and accumulating over ten years experience as a psychotherapist, I am so happy to be able to offer that kind of specialized attention to others who have taken the courageous step of emancipating themselves from similar organizations.

Recovery therapy provides an opportunity to re-examine your values, embracing those which empower you and rewriting those which do not, as well as offering the emotional and social support which is so often lacking when leaving high-control groups. Having the right support can be immensely helpful for navigating the transition to the world beyond, and not just surviving, but thriving.

If you are feeling lost or alone, secure in your decision to leave but unsure of how to proceed in this new version of reality, I encourage you to reach out to me. I offer a full first session at no cost, and flexible rates for those with financial limitations.

 

If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to email me or visit my website for more info. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Ryan Lee, Psy.D

About: Creating an inclusive best practice model of private practice for all therapists | Author | Trial Preparation Consultant.

The National Guild of Australian Therapists is unique.

Our vision is to bring together traditional, complementary and alternative therapeutic practitioners into an inclusive and cohesive best practice model of private practice, incorporating a supervision and continuing professional development program for all members, regardless of modality.

The Guild is for all therapeutic practitioners who have a desire, dream, goal or aspiration to be in private practice. You may be a student, graduate, employee or existing private practice practitioner.

We believe that all practitioners should be operating in an ethical paradigm no matter their modality or mode of practice.

We believe that all practitioners, regardless of their modality, should be undertaking regular supervision.

The National Guild of Australian Therapists is unlike any other association.

We are not a directory, nor are we a group to lobby the government.

We do not seek Medicare Provider numbers as a ‘matter of course’.

Our focus is on inspiring and guiding therapists to be ‘best practice’ practitioners in their private practice.

My passion for advocating for the thousands of people who graduate every year from tertiary education, in circumstances that don’t help them find employment or assist their start in private practice, led me to found this Guild.

I am vitally interested in debunking the myths around private practice, putting the dogma back into its kennel, and creating a paradigm diametrically opposed to the current model of elitism, exclusion and disenfranchisement that currently exists within the helping profession in Australia today.

Over the last four years, I have been involved in assisting hundreds of therapists develop and fine tune their private practice goals and aspirations.

Patricia Reilly

Website: beyondthemasks.com

Email: patricia.reilly3@bigpond.com

I am an Expressive Therapist, Counsellor, Educator, Leader and Author.

I specialise in the following areas:

Building resilience and emotional regulation in children and adults through meditation and mindfulness –

as a former early childhood and primary educator, I feel very strongly that teachers, carers and indeed parents have a responsibility to assist the children for whom they are responsible to develop these life skills.

Mindfulness in the treatment of suicidal individuals –

with both personal experience and educational background, I bring a vast array of knowledge, understanding and expertise.

The latest statistics have shown the rate of death by suicide increasing throughout the country which indicates how important it is for young children to develop emotional intelligence, resilience and the ability to regulate their emotions.

Meditation and mindfulness for depression and bipolar disorder –

bipolar disorder is highly recurrent and rates of comorbidity are high. Studies have pointed to anxiety comorbidity as one factor associated with risk of suicide attempts and poor overall outcome. Depression being a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal; sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason.

My techniques taught through meditation and mindfulness play a great part in enabling those facing depression or bipolar disorder to maintain themselves in a ‘safe’ zone.

Loss and Grief –

the journey of personal experience in the loss of my son through suicide, and the journey as a mother, wife and educator in helping my family go through the process of grief, and face the ripple effects of suicide.

There are very few of us fortunate enough not to have been touched by the loss of a family member, friend or acquaintance to suicide. My journey has enabled me to help others process, and manage their own grief.

Lee Lee Crow

Website: ariseandshinecounselling.com/

Email: leelee@iinet.com.au

About: Counsellor at Arise & Shine Family Therapy and Counselling.

As a therapist, I am familiar with multiculturalism and I greatly respect all cultures, religious and spiritual beliefs. I work within the framework of Dr Litchfield’s Family Therapy Model based on Christian principals and its eclectic approach in therapy. The three approaches to therapy are:

  • A systemic approach (Murray Bowen’s family systems theory with its eight interlocking concepts)
  • A strategic approach (actively working with the family to find solutions to its problems)
  • A structural approach (family restructuring for improved functioning)

Human beings are spirit, soul and body. The fact that human beings have a spiritual (religious) dimension cannot be ignored in counseling if it is to be fully effective. Therefore balanced and effective counseling requires the integration of theology, psychology and spirituality. Theology involves an accurate awareness of need, Psychology involves an accurate awareness of self, and Spirituality involves the healing relationship.

About: You want to reach and help more people. You’re tired of spending thousands of dollars trying to find leads that won’t convert into clients.

You’ve tried to solve this problem with expensive seminars and workshops.

Or maybe you’ve tried hiring an inbound sales specialist to take on these leads for you.

But nowadays, it’s just not cutting it.

Sales techniques worldwide are out of date.

And although many companies try to revive these techniques by adding their own touch and scripts, customers are more sceptical than ever.

This is why you need closers.

Closers are the solution to your sales nightmare.

They are the rainmakers for your business and they aren’t on your monthly payroll!

Even better, they only eat when you’ve been paid!

Here’s where I come in, my name is Hala, and I’m a High-Ticket Closer.

I help my clients sell their premium packages and services on a pure commission basis, and I’m committed to doubling your sales rates.

Closers however aren’t for everyone, in fact most business aren’t ready to take on these professionals.

With my counselling and neuroscience background I work with specialised entrepreneurs that are determined to make a positive impact on society.

To find out if you qualify, message me so that we can book a call.

About: ACEs & Trauma Informed Trainer & Consultant

I’m passionate about addressing the root causes of our individual and collective social and environmental conflicts.
Trauma, especially from not having our needs met during early life development, has been identified as the number one public health issue we are not dealing with. If we’re not affected directly, we are affected indirectly, because people around us are affected and influence our experience.
Being Trauma-Informed includes knowing extensively about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and how we can interact with each other in safe, respectful, collaborative, empowering ways between individuals and within the larger contexts of our organizations, communities, and society.

Being Trauma-Informed is a way of being. It’s a consciousness shift that inspires compassion, empathy, and radical self-honesty.

I have been an adult trainer since 2004, particularly in the areas of personal development and workplace health and wellness.
Since 2014, I’ve been accumulating knowledge and promoting universal access to understanding ACEs and Trauma Informed knowledge.

I founded the Canadian ACEs and Trauma-Informed Network on ACEsConnection.com and ACEs Canada, a collective of Canadians seeking to collaborate to create ACEs-Informed and Trauma-Informed Canada.

If you are curious about ACEs and how to become Trauma-Informed, contact me. I offer training and consulting, counselling and peer support.

Contact me today to discuss how developing an ACEs and Trauma-Informed lens will benefit you, your colleagues, and your organization.

About: As an expert in the field of Career Counselling, I’m often asked about success and what it means to have a successful career. Here’s the answer:

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it (thanks, Maya Angelou!).

While this definition of success is simple, it’s definitely not straight forward to achieve. Think about it – can you honestly say “yes” too each of Maya’s success criteria? Figuring out how to be successful, and feel successful in your career is complex business…

That’s where I come in! My mission is to help individuals (like you!) and organizations clarify what success means to them and figure out how they can make that success a reality.

I’m a Registered Psychologist (trained in Counselling Psychology) who focuses on Career and Workplace Psychology. Since 2016, I’ve led the Ontario Division of Canada Career Counselling – a national firm recognized as a leading provider of career-development services in Canada.

Regarding my work with individuals, I specialize in career planning, career decision making, and career strategy (often related to leadership development, conflict, communication, assertiveness, and/or professional branding). I also support clients with personal concerns such as relationship issues, confidence and self-esteem, and mental health.

In my work with teams and organizations, my goal is to enhance workplace culture and employee effectiveness. I also strive to support psychological health in the workplace.

I’ve got a track record of success, and at the end of the day, my clients walk away feeling clear about their career-related choice(s), and confident about navigating the road to success.

About: We run remarkable voluntary anger management groups in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey that are recognized by the courts. Those who attend our individual or group programs state that even after one session the feel “inspired”, “optimistic”, “motivated”, and “hopeful”. We love this work because of the impact on our clients, but even more importantly on the loved ones in these people’s lives who report back to us that things are more peaceful in the home, and that they feel safer and more relaxed as time goes on.

We are a team of highly skilled therapists who are passionate about touching peoples’​ lives in a manner that brings about grounded, wise responses to anger and conflict. I love to hear about how our work allows people to live a life more true to themselves. While most come our way of their own volition, many are strongly encouraged/directed by their company/organization to attend due to discipline or for personal growth. We have a program that is recognized by the courts, so lawyers, and even judges have referred people our way. Those who attend get a copy of the book we have written on this topic, which is available for sale on our website, www.angerman.ca, and get a certificate of attendance at the end of the last session to signify completion of either the six hour individual program, or the 12 hour group program.

Email: kismetcounselling@yahoo.com

About: Counsellor based on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border

Before going into counselling as a profession, I experienced its potential first hand as a client. Following a complex start to life and a serious breakdown, I eventually had the courage to seek help. I was fortunate enough to be enrolled on an intense programme of integrative counselling, where I was supported to face past demons and develop skills and strategies in order to cope with life again and to progress. I cannot emphasise how much of a transformation those people bought out in me. I walked in broken, almost completely unable to function day to day, and after 3 years intensive support, became the person I am today.

Having seen first hand the benefits of in depth and structured counselling support, I have a deep level of understanding not only about how this works but how much it can help people. Speaking from experience, I know that in the most extreme cases, in depth psychodynamic counselling can literally turn people around, provide hope where it seemed there was none before, and provide people with the opportunity to re-build their lives and allow them the opportunity to hope and believe again.

To me this is more than just a job. Since training in psychodynamic and person centered counselling, it has become the driving force behind everything that I do. I have worked both face to face and also providing telephone counselling support, and believe that both have the power to achieve amazing results.

I am a passionate provider of counselling practice and do not believe in a ‘one size fits all approach’. Though I practice in psychodynamic and person centered counselling, I believe that a thorough evaluation process should be undertaken before any counselling is offered, and that professionals should work together to ensure that each person receives not only the type of counselling that is best for them, but also that they receive help from the right person within that specialism.

About: Director at New Horizons Network.

As a counsellor, supervisor and trainer with over 20 years of experience I have been privileged to have worked with many courageous people from all walks of life, cultures and backgrounds. I have worked with adults, children, young people and couples who have faced difficulties in their lives and with the help of counselling they have been able to explore what’s troubling them, discover where their beliefs have come from, gain more control and a better understanding of themselves. This has then enabled the possibility of change from often repeating patterns of the past.

 

I am a member of the BACP and accredited member of COSRT and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have a wealth of experience working with a diverse client group within the statutory, charitable and criminal justice system. For a number of years I ran a specialist counselling service for young people and adolescents. I have also worked within the addictions field as a counsellor and group facilitator for a drug and alcohol treatment centre.

 

For many years I have specialised in sexual abuse working with survivors and also in my previous employment with the NSPCC .

I am also a qualified psychosexual and relationship therapist. Many relationships go through difficulties and if you are experiencing problems with erectile dysfunction, rapid ejaculation, vaginismus or lack of sexual desire, psycho sexual therapy can help you to explore those issues and get your relationship back on track.

I offer an environment that is supportive, warm, free from judgement and confidential. I create a space in which you will be able to explore areas of your life that you may wish to understand, improve on or make changes to. Whether the difficulties are current or unresolved from the past, together we will work at your pace to make life better. I work in an integrative way which means I draw on a number of theories to help you become the best version of yourself .

My counselling practice is located in Watford and St Albans Hertfordshire and I also work with clients throughout the UK via online video link. I offer an inclusive, non-jugemental, confidential, safe space for clients of all races, religions, genders and sexualities. The difficult experiences we go through in childhood and as adults can leave us with invisible scars that still hurt years after the events. Others may not be able to see them, but you feel them. You may be experiencing deep rooted pain and feelings such as sadness, anger, shame and anguish. These feelings can cause you to feel depressed or anxious and stop you from living your life the way you would like to. The weight of these thoughts and feelings can have an affect on the way you see yourself and you may find it hard to let others in. They may cause you to feel not good enough, have self doubt and feel unable to trust in yourself or others. These feelings are normal when you are living with the scars others have left you with. Through the counselling process I will support you to work through and release the feelings that are weighing you down, increase your self-esteem and find healthier ways of coping. Gain confidence and trust in yourself and move forward with your life. Issues I have supported clients with include: *Anxiety *Depression *Self-harming *Low Self-esteem *Low Motivation *Identity Issues *Gender Issues *Eating Disorders *Trauma *Abuse (emotional, sexual and physical) *Relationship Issues (intimate, family, friendships *Bereavement and Loss I am aware how scary and overwhelming seeking a Counsellor can be. This is why I offer a brief telephone consultation before we start our work together. This can help you feel more comfortable and gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have.

Having over 9 years of experience in mental health and well-being, I offer a safe space and confidential environment working from a humanistic and compassionate approach to encourage clients to explore their free will and the ability to change. We are all evolving as people so a change will occur within you whether you want it to or not. You have a choice whether to learn and grow by deepening your self-awareness of who you are and how you are responding to your life events or to feel stuck continuously being affected by your past experiences.

Therapy provides great insight into what your life experiences have meant to you as an individual. Through my counselling service, I offer you a safe and confidential space to explore ways of developing a deeper understanding of your past experiences and how they have affected you, then we focus on what it is you are struggling with right now as you recover from your past experiences and move towards improving your mental health and well-being in the here and now. I am passionately researching, training and discovering all I can to support parents through Perinatal Mental Health difficulties.

About: If I could help you overcome Anxiety, screaming Stress & Intrusive thoughts to make Positive Change & be your most authentic, purposeful self would you be interested?

WHAT DO I DO?

In a nutshell, I support Professionals who may be experiencing anxiety, intrusive thoughts and feelings of stress to make POSITIVE CHANGE to live their best life. Using one of the most modern therapeutic coaching methods to date, (and with my support), my clients achieve the clarity, confidence, and happiness to move forward.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

If you continue to stay stuck in your current circumstances and destructive habits (that may be far away from the reality you envisioned for yourself), you will continue to feel anxious, fearful and out of control. I can take you from never reaching your potential, procrastinating and experiencing intrusive thoughts to complete certainty about who you are and what you want. You no longer need to allow anxiety, negative habits or emotions to impact your Professional and Personal life. Together, it’s time to make a change…

WHAT MAKES MY SERVICE DIFFERENT?

Unlike many traditional coaching methods out there, I use one of the most modern methods to date- Therapeutic Coaching. This (non-directive) process enables an environment for complete safety, trust, and empathy. This enables you to express and accept any uncertainties, anxieties, and vulnerabilities and explore your reality with techniques to ensure challenge management and recovery.

I can guarantee you significant change to progress forwards with clarity and purpose, overcoming the challenges keeping you stuck to live your best life.

I strongly believe in the individual; we all develop in different ways and have our own struggles. I believe that with help and support we can each, regardless of background or position, feel valued and contribute.

For some of us that may mean coming to terms with overcoming life’s challenges, for others it may mean studying for growth or to improve career prospects. My life is driven by this belief in people.

As an Open University (OU) tutor I am passionate about the OU’s work in supporting growth in our students, enabling them to fulfill their potential and dreams. Our country needs people who are determined to overcome challenges, grow and contribute to society.

Our mission in the OU is to “be open to people, places, methods and ideas. We promote educational opportunity and social justice by providing high-quality university education to all who wish to realise their ambitions and fulfil their potential”.

I am proud to have contributed to the many changes that we have embraced over the past decades and continue to embrace.

I am a Visiting Lecturer at Redlands University, California.

As part of my portfolio approach to my career, I work as a pluralistic psychotherapist and counsellor. As a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling) I have a busy private practice where I undertake both short and long term work. I also work with charities providing free counselling to local residents.

Contributing to society has always been part of my life. I am a Board Trustee of a number of charities and a Director of a number of companies. I was an Accountant for several years and have worked in Finance and Administration – skills that I now employ in my work as a Trustee and Director

PJ Toal MNCS (Accred)

Email: counsellorpj@gmail.com

About: As an integrative Counsellor I draw on elements of different perspectives and provide a unique therapy which can be adapted to suit a client’s needs. I use the insights and techniques of Humanistic Counselling, Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, to gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and work towards a new and happier sense of self. Below is a very brief description of the approaches I use in my practice which you may find present in our therapy sessions together. These approaches build a strong foundation for our therapeutic relationship to grow in a safe and supporting environment.

By integrating Jacob’s and Egan’s counselling Models as a framework, I am able to integrate different theories and approaches as required by my individual clients. Humanistic Counselling offers a non-judgemental relationship between the therapist and client; this enables the client to explore what they need and want in the ‘here and now,’ and how they can reach this goal. Gestalt Therapy in particular focuses on the development of the client’s holistic awareness of themselves, their circumstances and how they live in those circumstances. During this therapy various therapeutic tools and creative mediums may be used.

Psychodynamic Therapy focuses on unconscious thought processes which manifest themselves in a client’s behaviour. The approach seeks to increase a client’s self-awareness and understanding of how the past has influenced present thoughts and behaviours, by exploring their unconscious patterns. Clients are encouraged to explore unresolved issues and conflicts, and to talk about important people and relationships in their life. By using this approach I offer a safe holding and containing environment in which I aim to build trust and autonomy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy works on exploring how negative thoughts and feelings can affect our behaviour and how different aspects of these can be changed to resolve a particular problem or issue.

About: “People come to Counselling for many reasons, often for the ways life unfolds. Sometimes we think we don’t deserve better, so we don’t go looking for better.

Counselling can help guide us towards solutions to and for our problems.

I offer an integrative Counselling approach, drawing from Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also blend in relevant theory from my background in Psychology to help us both make sense of problems. This helps us work together to tailor sessions to your needs. Offering a relationship embedded in truth, which does not shy away from the difficult places we need to go to heal.

While you can’t go back and change the beginning, I would love to meet you where you are, and help change the ending. “

People fall out of love, relationships breakdown and people move in different directions.

When this happens your life can change in an instant. The process is the same as a bereavement and this is very powerful emotionally. You can feel scared, out of control and very isolated.We at Aspire are here to support you through that process by offering a six month programme that includes a weekly support group and one to one coaching.

If your getting divorced where do you obtain all the different advice and emotional support from?

Each month we bring in a specialist, offering advice and practical solutions to all of your answers. At the end of the programme our aim is for you to move forward with your life feeling empowered.

At Aspire we believe that everyone has the potential and the right to lead fulfilling lives and we are deeply committed to helping our clients achieve that.

About: Whether you want to build awesome personal relationships or fix broken ones or escape from toxic, damaging ones I can help you. I am very interested in the many types of relationships we have and how they affect our lives. Problems with relationships in our lives can leave us feeling misunderstood, anxious & depressed. We can all at times have intense feelings that we find difficult to control or communicate. Getting angry & stressed instead. This often makes things worse & we can end up pushing those we want close to us away. This can be a lonely & isolating place to be in. Whether it be relationships with:

*family

*friends

*neighbours

*work

*or issues such as binge eating, intimacy, money, drugs, gambling, strippers, gaming etc

We cannot avoid relationships. The trouble is they can be stressful to deal with, especially when trying to work out acceptable boundaries or forgive or trying to repair damaged relationships. Some of us turn inwards as a coping strategy – towards risky behaviour, self harming or or isolating ourselves even.

I Specialise In Supporting epic professionals who want to have exceptional relationships. I am passionate about helping adults & young people grow by increasing their self awareness through helping them understand themselves better. I believe our relationship with “self” holds the key to many of our issues. Crack this relationship and all else will follow – increased confidence, self-belief & empowerment. As a result other relationships get much easier. Life becomes awesome!!

My approach is to provide you with genuine, compassionate, kind, down to earth, pragmatic and proactive care. I use a combination of talking and creative therapies. I also offer walk and talk therapy.

My primary focus is not to fix your problems, but to empower you. I achieve this by giving you a supportive safe space where you can work through your problems. I shall share with you my powerful personal experience and professional expertise in helping you. I will work towards supporting you so you will leave enabled to embrace life.

I work with a diverse clientele, having extensive experience with working with clients in the creative, tech & sporting industries. I specialise with eating disorders, money or sexual issues. I have a personal interest in anxiety and depression and work with adults and young people to help them make sense of the world they live in and gain coping strategies

New enquirys from new clients are warmly welcome.

Email: gillie@hopevalleycounselling.com

About:  I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and specialise in working with former members of abusive groups and relationships, including cults and spiritual abuse. I have developed a relational psychoeducational counselling model for working with former cult members (Time Away for Post Cult Counselling), in order to help clients critically apraise what they went through, and to help them understand the dynamics of coercive control, undue influence, trauma, and spiritual and sexual abuse.

Time Away for Post-Cult Counselling often includes intensive retreat aspects in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District National Park to the West of Sheffield. Clients stay in a B&B, hotel or holiday cottage and come to see me in my consulting room for up to 4 hours a day. This combines time away from everyday life, being in a beautiful countryside setting, making sense of the cult experience, and emotional support.

I have described this approach in a Chapter entitled: ‘Relational Psychoeducational Intensive—Time Away for Postcult Counselling’ in the new book published by International Cultic Studies Association: ‘Cult Recovery: A Clinician’s Guide to Working With Former Members and Families’ – Editors: Lorna Goldberg, William Goldberg, Rosanne Henry, Michael Langone (2017).

I conducted a qualitative, constructivist Ground Theory doctoral research project at The University of Nottingham, England, and graduated in December 2016. I asked 29 former cult members what they think helps former members recover from an abusive cult experience. My thesis is entitled: ‘Freeing the Authentic-Self: Phases of Recovery and Growth from an Abusive Cult Experience.’ Summary below.

I am a trained supervisor with a Diploma in Supervision from the Sherwood Institute.

I am an international speaker and a published author.

I spent the past 8 years working as a trauma therapist with the Gila River Indian Community. Now I am starting a new chapter as a trauma therapist working with a different population. I’m looking forward to this new adventure as well as more growth as a provider

I enjoy using Play Therapy & Art Therapy techniques along with Sand Tray work. Color Therapy is also amazing to watch children & adults alike.

I specialize in working with children with trauma. It is amazing how resilient they are and how much they actually teach me as they work through their “stuff”. I see children as seeds of our future. If we can teach them to use the tools they already have, but just have not learned to use them yet, then the future for all of us will be much healthier and stable.

About: As a professional and passionate addictions counselor with over 10 years of working with clients, 500+ educational credits in addictions counseling, a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Addictions Studies, Certified Addictions Professional (CAP), Certified Recovery Support Specialist, and currently obtaining a dual Master’s in mental health and addiction, it is what I have learned from my clients that continues to keep my passion alive. Some of the most important things I have learned is to be a safe, comforting and sacred place for my clients to share those hidden concerns and experiences that have remained secrets. I believe in the truth behind this saying “we are only as sick as the secrets we keep.” As clients process their secrets, they find healing and the ability to start believing in themselves again. They gain understanding about what belongs to them and what does not; incorporating healthy boundaries and personal accountability.

PERSONAL CODE OF ETHICS:

First and foremost, do no harm and secondly, do unto others as I would have them do unto me. My clients are treated with respect, honoring their autonomy, establishing trust through confidentiality and a non-judgmental attitude, rigorous honesty and radical acceptance. I adhere to the holistic/wellness/learned/developmental models and ethical practices regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status or religious/spiritual practices.

MISSION:

To offer hope, encouragement, support, understanding, compassion, and help to another human with empathy, rigorous honesty and radical acceptance. To support the recovery of one’s self-esteem, self-worth and self-acceptance through healing, health and sobriety.

About: I am an intuitive healing facilitator (I don’t like the word “healer” as we are all self-healing). Sometimes one’s healing ability can be compromised by traumas, emotions and “programming” that have been unconsciously stuffed in the physical, mental and energetic aspects of Self. I am a Master in these unseen realms. I help expose and transmute the stories, robbing others of health and happiness. When the non-physical roots of dis-ease or energetic block are eliminated/transmuted, the physical/mental/emotional/spiritual aspects of Self respond in what can seem to be miraculous ways.   I utilize my own integrative modality I’ve called Perspective Reboot® which is based in unconditional love and light. Challenges people have struggled with on their own, respond to my healing resonance. I am able to help others release obsolete programming, self-limiting beLIEfs and stories that ultimately keep us from joy and wellness. Client healing experiences have been profound, but I am here to empower others to heal and find their true joy! Because I see us as more than our bodies, my assist affects physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.   Private natural healing sessions are offered both in person (Wells, Maine or Danvers, Mass) or from my heart to yours via telephone/Skype.  I also offer a catalog of targeted healing sessions, available live stream or as MP3 downloads 24/7 in the Kore HealingSM section of my site.

I have been specializing in addiction counseling for over a decade and use different treatment modalities to assist people in moving into their truest selves, lives without addiction, whole and balanced. Addiction is a word that makes people move into denial very easily. There is more addiction in our society than most are willing or ready to deal with. There are common addictions that society sees very clearly such as alcohol and drug dependencies and then there are the others such as gambling , shopping and food that are the behavioral addictions that we see. The addictions that many are unaware of are the sensation addictions and those are addictions such as love, work, control, obsessive thinking and even suffering, just to name a few. Addiction is something that one does that causes some kind of negative consequence to their life and that can be as covert as complaining and obsessing over not getting enough attention from your partner. Addiction is about internal energy and the imbalance of that energy, energy work is part of what I assist people with to get beneath the addictive tendencies and see what is being avoided with addiction.

Specialties:

  • Energy Psychology Practitioner
  • Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor III
  • National Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist- DIPLOMAT
  • Bachelor of Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Internationally Certified ADC III
  • Certified and Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Esoteric Studies

About: I am a seasoned mental health clinician, consultant, and coach. I’m at my best when dealing with interpersonal communications, functional assessments, community/system-wide negotiations, and project management. Although mental health has been the focus of my career the variety of situations I have encountered have prepared me for a wider range of industries- flexibility is one of my core abilities.

I have helped thousands of clients self-manage depression, anxiety, autism and chronic illness among other conditions towards healthier living.

I’ve worn many hats in my career- life coach, psychotherapist, consultant, case manager, liaison, and crisis counselor among others. As a result I have a unique ability to manage multidisciplinary environments and challenging personalities (aka herding cats). Navigating complex challenges and systems is my specialty.

I’m fanatical about making a difference in the world, volunteerism, and finding ways to make a large scale impact on local and global communities/economies.

I love making new professional acquaintances so reach out if you want to talk global/community projects that help the underserved. I also love discussing social media applications to change the world for the better.

About: After graduating from Grace Theological Seminary with my masters degree in counseling, I moved to West Michigan where I had a private counseling practice for nearly ten years. During the first years of my practice I was also employed by Radio Bible Class (Now Our Daily Bread Ministries) in the counseling department.

I have been on staff (full time) at Blythefield Hills Baptist Church for over twenty years as the pastor of Small Groups and Men’s Ministries. I also have a part time private practice at True North Ministries (truenorthministries.net).

My first book, True North: Choosing God in the Frustration of Life, was released in 2011 by Kregel Publications (co-authored with my wife Lisa).

I have been married to my dear wife Lisa for thirty three years. We have two adult children Brandon and Kailie.

In my spare time I enjoy fly fishing, backpacking, hunting, painting and woodworking.

About: I am an intuitive healing facilitator (I don’t like the word “healer” as we are all self-healing). Sometimes one’s healing ability can be compromised by traumas, emotions and “programming” that have been unconsciously stuffed in the physical, mental and energetic aspects of Self. I am a Master in these unseen realms. I help expose and transmute the stories, robbing others of health and happiness. When the non-physical roots of dis-ease or energetic block are eliminated/transmuted, the physical/mental/emotional/spiritual aspects of Self respond in what can seem to be miraculous ways.   I utilize my own integrative modality I’ve called Perspective Reboot® which is based in unconditional love and light. Challenges people have struggled with on their own, respond to my healing resonance. I am able to help others release obsolete programming, self-limiting beLIEfs and stories that ultimately keep us from joy and wellness. Client healing experiences have been profound, but I am here to empower others to heal and find their true joy! Because I see us as more than our bodies, my assist affects physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.   Private natural healing sessions are offered both in person (Wells, Maine or Danvers, Mass) or from my heart to yours via telephone/Skype.  I also offer a catalog of targeted healing sessions, available live stream or as MP3 downloads 24/7 in the Kore HealingSM section of my site.

About: As a woman who has struggled with fertility and toxic relationships, I work empathically with clients to create the ideal environment for whatever journey they are on. This is achieved through emotion regulation, encouragement, and providing education for their specific issues. My counselor training adds a dimension above traditional coaching. I take great pleasure in watching women rise from the ashes of emotional pain!

I have been specializing in addiction counseling for over a decade and use different treatment modalities to assist people in moving into their truest selves, lives without addiction, whole and balanced. Addiction is a word that makes people move into denial very easily. There is more addiction in our society than most are willing or ready to deal with. There are common addictions that society sees very clearly such as alcohol and drug dependencies and then there are the others such as gambling , shopping and food that are the behavioral addictions that we see. The addictions that many are unaware of are the sensation addictions and those are addictions such as love, work, control, obsessive thinking and even suffering, just to name a few. Addiction is something that one does that causes some kind of negative consequence to their life and that can be as covert as complaining and obsessing over not getting enough attention from your partner. Addiction is about internal energy and the imbalance of that energy, energy work is part of what I assist people with to get beneath the addictive tendencies and see what is being avoided with addiction.

About: I am a seasoned mental health clinician, consultant, and coach. I’m at my best when dealing with interpersonal communications, functional assessments, community/system-wide negotiations, and project management. Although mental health has been the focus of my career the variety of situations I have encountered have prepared me for a wider range of industries- flexibility is one of my core abilities.

I have helped thousands of clients self-manage depression, anxiety, autism and chronic illness among other conditions towards healthier living.

I’ve worn many hats in my career- life coach, psychotherapist, consultant, case manager, liaison, and crisis counselor among others. As a result I have a unique ability to manage multidisciplinary environments and challenging personalities (aka herding cats). Navigating complex challenges and systems is my specialty.

I’m fanatical about making a difference in the world, volunteerism, and finding ways to make a large scale impact on local and global communities/economies.

I love making new professional acquaintances so reach out if you want to talk global/community projects that help the underserved. I also love discussing social media applications to change the world for the better.

About
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and specialise in working with former members of abusive groups and relationships, including cults and spiritual abuse. I have developed a relational psychoeducational counselling model for working with former cult members (Time Away for Post Cult Counselling), in order to help clients critically apraise what they went through, and to help them understand the dynamics of coercive control, undue influence, trauma, and spiritual and sexual abuse.

Time Away for Post-Cult Counselling often includes intensive retreat aspects in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District National Park to the West of Sheffield. Clients stay in a B&B, hotel or holiday cottage and come to see me in my consulting room for up to 4 hours a day. This combines time away from everyday life, being in a beautiful countryside setting, making sense of the cult experience, and emotional support.

I have described this approach in a Chapter entitled: ‘Relational Psychoeducational Intensive—Time Away for Postcult Counselling’ in the new book published by International Cultic Studies Association: ‘Cult Recovery: A Clinician’s Guide to Working With Former Members and Families’ – Editors: Lorna Goldberg, William Goldberg, Rosanne Henry, Michael Langone (2017).

I conducted a qualitative, constructivist Ground Theory doctoral research project at The University of Nottingham, England, and graduated in December 2016. I asked 29 former cult members what they think helps former members recover from an abusive cult experience. My thesis is entitled: ‘Freeing the Authentic-Self: Phases of Recovery and Growth from an Abusive Cult Experience.’ Summary below.

I am a trained supervisor with a Diploma in Supervision from the Sherwood Institute.

I am an international speaker and a published author.
