Consulting (2016 update)

  • Personal Consulting (including Coaching & Tutoring)
  • Family Consulting / Coaching
  • Organizational Consulting / Coaching
  • Curriculum Development
  • Virtual Learning Environment Development

nb – My consulting practice reflects my training, expertise and experiences in holistic learning consulting and personal coaching and tutoring, including SelfDesign methodology. SelfDesign is especially focused on a holistic (whole-person), wellness-oriented, systematic approach that seeks, through face-to-face conferencing, to reveal impediments to goal achievement and replace with positive, resolving strategies. I am additionally experienced and influenced in my consulting and coaching approach by DIR Floortime, Interpersonal Neurobiology (Mindsight Institute, UCLA), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Morita psychotherapy (AKA Constructive Living),  Choice Therapy (William Glass), Neurolinguistics and others.
