A little less than ten years ago, I took part in a personal-growth retreat that opened a door to massive improvements in the quality of my life. During that week I experienced more growth and healing than I’d experienced in the twenty years proceeding.
I had grown up in what felt, to me, like a ‘domestic war-zone' and over the years, had invested thousands of dollars and countless hours in individual and couple’s therapy … apart from my relief at making so much personal progress at the retreat, I was exhilarated to discover that I could access tools and techniques powerful enough to initiate radical personal transformation on a timescale measured in years, rather than decades!
Needless to say, I devoted the years following that retreat to mastering these tools and techniques while applying them to my own inner-evolution or inner-game. Whenever an opportunity to improve or to refine these tools and techniques presented itself, I stepped up to the challenge, eventually birthing Behavioural Loop Theory, elaborating on Carl Jung’s ‘Shadow’, authoring the manual “Learning to Love – Your Guide to Personal Empowerment” and more recently, introducing ‘Personal Compassion Maps’ and ‘Personality Spheres’.
I generally work with clients displaying symptoms of anxiety or depression, with their relatives and with anyone supporting them, and with anyone whose pathways to happiness and peace seem to be obstructed by unrelenting compulsions, by uncontrollable behaviours, habits or addictions.
Many of my clients are recovering from abuse and from other childhood traumas, from PTSD, domestic violence and suicidal ideation. In the majority of cases, the Learning to Love curriculum offers better outcomes than drug and medication based treatments. The Learning to Love curriculum is only taught by highly trained facilitators who are adept at recognising and counteracting the unconscious role played by their ‘*Shadow’ when supporting clients. The degree to which Learning to Love practitioners have integrated ‘Shadow’ elements, differentiates us from those healing professionals and practitioners who remain reactive when they encounter elements of their own shadow in the clients they serve. (*Your shadow is visible in the Blue section of your Personality Sphere)
I strongly encourage anyone who finds herself/himself a point in life where transformative change can no longer be deferred, to invest heavily in freedom, self-acceptance and happiness by fully embracing the Learning to Love Curriculum revolution, now.
My home is on Vancouver Island, on the West Coast of Canada, where I work in close collaboration with Jenna Forster a Behavioral Leadership Expert, Life Coach and Mentor.
