After one very bad argument with my wife which led to a temporary separation I realised I had an anger problem which needed dealing with. I was recommended to John by a friend and, after four appointments, the problem has been solved - hopefully for good. What I thought was an anger problem turned out to be something else - poor communication on my part, as well as my wife's. John taught me how to speak clearly when irritating problems came up, instead of ignoring things and letting the anger build up until it turned into rage. My wife also came to see John for two sessions and we now have a much better relationship. We also really enjoyed the sessions with John. In fact, during most of my sessions with him I was constantly laughing - he really does have a great sense of humour! Mr TL Surrey


Hi John. Just to say I have finally stopped using heroin after our sessions together. As you know I succeeded in getting my intake down from 140mg to 30mg over the past few years but just needed a little extra help and a few  pushes from you to give it up for good. Your addictions 'grid' is excellent and I keep it by me every day. That helps me notice when I am stressed and to keep a sharp look out for the triggers and the danger-zones to avoid in order to stay clean. I will be moving to the USA next September and I am so relieved that I can start a new life without this curse hanging over me. All the best.  Mr AW  London

The key skill I want my clients to develop is to use the right brain and the left brain in the correct way. Contrary to myth it is not the left brain that creates most problems but the right.

The right side gives us intuition, creativity and the 'big picture'. Wrongly used it also conjures up paranoia, fantasy and delusion - the stuff of most mental health issues.

The left side gives us analysis, problem-solving and decision-making. But it only really works well when it is powered by the genius that resides on the right side. Otherwise it will just keep churning out out-dated ideas that belong to some half-forgotten issue from the past.

To solve a problem or create a new solution we will evoke:

  • Creativity and Common-sense
  • Intuition and a Search for the facts
  • The Big Picture and the Fine Detail
  • Gut feels and Hard Judgments
