I have been leading groups since 1985, working with people from different backgrounds, including some with very difficult and traumatic issues.
I have over 20 years experience working in prisons in Canada, England and Spain. During that time I also did much volunteer work in those countries.
In the 1980s I initiated and implemented programmes for “The Native Sons” for Indigenous Men in Canadian prisons in Ontario.
Creating successful support frameworks
Some of my most challenging and rewarding voluntary work has been for Distress Line in Canada and then the Samaritans, its equivalent, in England, which I did for 20 years.
I facilitated Art of Living resilience building and stress management courses in and out of prisons in England and Spain for 10 years.
I have been delivering personal development courses since 2000. Guiding people to help themselves is what drives me. So witnessing people find success at the courses that I've run on personal development has been really satisfying for them and also for me.
