What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy working with stress problems as it is one of the easiest areas to assist people to enjoy significant and lasting change, in a relatively short period of time.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Continue to challenge myself with handling high stress experiences through regular skydiving. I have over 880 jumps to date, and coach relative work students in the art of freefall.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Many problems with stress and anxiety can be managed either by learning self hypnosis from a skilled therapist, or by utilising top quality self hypnosis tapes. Self help products, tapes and books are available to order online at my website at Author of Miracle of Meditation Beginners Meditation Handbook at;

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

I enjoy challenging my clients to take more responsibility for their own lives. For the past 4 or 5 years I have had good success with using a provocative approach, following closely Frank Farrelly's techniques taken from his book and teachings - "Provocative Therapy". Surprisingly stress and anxiety allows us to re-evaluate our situation and forces us to make changes.
