Consulting & Tutoring – 2020

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

The services I offer reflect my training, expertise and experiences in holistic learning consulting, personal coaching and tutoring. My services are especially focused on a holistic (whole-person), wellness-oriented, systematic approach that seeks, through face-to-face and virtual conferencing, to identify and grow learning strengths, reveal impediments to goal achievement and replace with positive, resolving strategies. I am additionally experienced and influenced in my consulting and coaching approach by SelfDesigning methodology (which I have helped develop over many years), DIR Floortime, Interpersonal Neurobiology (Mindsight Institute, UCLA), Languaging for Empowerment (based on NLP and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Morita psychotherapy (AKA Constructive Living),  Choice Therapy (William Glass) and others.
