I trained and practiced as a therapist in the USA after moving there from Australia in 1979. I gained a license in California in 1983 in Marriage and Family Therapy. I returned to Sydney in 2003 after finishing my PhD and now practice as an individual therapist. My wife, Anita Hansen, and I also practice as couples therapists. I also write and do post-doctoral research on the relationship between psychology and art.
I specialize in Jungian therapy, a modality springing from the life and work of C. G. Jung. This modality gives central importance to inner capacities and strengths that are the fruit of the client’s lived experience, but which usually remain quite unconscious. The work of the therapist is to perceive these inner capacities and draw them forth into consciousness, with the full participation of the client, where they can now be brought to bear on her current issues. Dreams are often a vital resource for this work of self-discovery and recovery.
