Born and raised in vibrant South Africa, my adventures took me across the pond to the UK where I worked and lived for 16 years before immigrating to Canada in 2016.
I have always held strong views about the Western healthcare system being too diagnosis-focused. Typically, it's all about managing symptoms and dis-ease, with far too much hand-holding from big pharma.
I knew there had to be a better way to treat people as MULTI-DIMENSIONAL BEINGS, not just a diagnostic code in the DSM-5.
I decided to "DITCH THE DIAGNOSIS" and pivot from qualified Forensic Psychologist to training with the one and only Marisa Peer. Her phenomenal talents and international renown inspired me to become one of Canada's first certified Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) Associates in 2020.
I discovered the incredible power of integrating Hypnotherapy with other tools and therapy modalities. The results were nothing short of mind-blowing!
Now, as an Integrative Health and Wellness Therapist in private practice, I get to explore all kinds of exciting and unique approaches with my clients, tailoring each session to their specific needs.
I help people pleasers who feel uncertain about life and who want to connect with their inner Yoda, Dumbledore or Mr Miyagi, through expert Mentoring and Personal Training for their mind and soul without any psychobabble or dwelling on past events, so they can embrace independence to not just survive, but TRULY THRIVE!
For more than 25 years, I have been helping people align with their powerful potential by reconnecting them with their AUTHENTIC SELVES AND OWN INNER WISDOM.
I've worked with everyone from internationally renowned business leaders, to incarcerated individuals, government officials, students, university lecturers, former gang members, first responders, police officers, actors, and everyone in between, covering almost every issue imaginable.
So, if you're looking for a therapist who brings a FRESH PERSPECTIVE, a wealth of experience, compassion, is non-judgemental, and brings an unwavering commitment to helping you live your best life, then let's connect!
By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a MORE FLEXIBLE AND INCLUSIVE approach to treatment than more traditional, singular therapy.
It is more inclusive of the client than traditional forms of therapy, where the client plays a less active role in treatment.
Integrative therapists consider the individual characteristics, preferences, needs, physical abilities, spiritual beliefs, and motivation levels of their clients and use their professional judgment to decide the best approach to therapy for each client.
Different approaches are used consecutively throughout different stages of the therapeutic process, or they may be used as a single combined form of therapy throughout.
A therapist’s specific method of integrating approaches depends on their individual educational background, skills, and experience.
When I am not in session, helping clients, with groundbreaking therapy techniques and exciting resources, REAL LIFE PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS, and unconventional integrative resources to help them change their situation, you can find me blowing off steam at mixed martial arts or seeking adventures and exciting new experiences with my wife, two kids, and a dog, in Ontario, Canada where we now live.
I am an adventurer at heart and my all-time favourite adventures include swimming with pigs, sharks, and dolphins in the Bahamas, traveling around places with ancient history, like England, South Africa, China, Egypt, and Europe, flying in helicopters and parasailing, driving army tanks & monster trucks, downhill skiing, dog sledding, building igloos and taking ice baths.
With the weighing scales in my zodiac sign (Libra), balance is an integral part of my being. As much as I love excitement and adventure, I recalibrate and restore my energy in the peace and tranquility of nature, like weekends spent at our lake house, kayaking, bonfires on the beach, meditating in the cabana or just lazing in a hammock, soaking up natures elements.
