Taking new action toward challenging life as a series of interconnected experiments is the foundation of our practice.
A. Although there is a perceived overlap in method and operation, the difference between our work and counselling is direction of focus. Whereas counselling tends to focus on a particular issue or an acute current life problem (external problem focus), our work focuses on developing you as an integrated person (internal opportunity focus). Our internal focus trains you to reconnect with life from your new silent centre. Working from this new centre as a lifelong practice, you will be able to effectively manage diverse challenges using a simple proven method that works better over time.

A. Each official session is two hours long. During a formal coaching session, I will take notes on whatever we discuss. Video recording is optional. You will receive a copy of session notes for your review and further study. In addition to formal 2-hour sessions, we will periodically talk over the phone or message through email or online for brief progress checkups between formal sessions.
A. During our discovery session, we will determine the course of our professional relationship. Due to the significance and depth of our work, a single session is inadequate. Results are generally evident within three sessions. Quite often, it is appropriate to plan our monthly or bi-monthly formal sessions over 12 months or longer. In a BootCamp or Adventure experience, sessions are much more frequent and intense.

According to your ability to pay attention and willingness to apply what you learn, you can easily spend all your waking hours retraining yourself using our simple practice techniques. Between the assigned homework, journaling and your own self-directed study, 5-10 hours per week is common. The only strict requirement is to participate fully in our 2-hour formal sessions as mutually scheduled.
A. According to particular life demands, we will determine our overall formal session schedule together. General practice is to schedule the second session no less than one month after the first. This intentional initial gap allows for new observations and life developments to naturally occur.
A. Our formal sessions are done in person or from any distance according to your location and preference. If you live in or near Adelaide, South Australia, we will meet near Glenelg or in the city.

A. All formal sessions are face-to-face. If you are unable to physically meet in Adelaide, we use Skype, Google Hangouts or Facebook Messenger for remote live video sessions.
A. Our current human condition offers difficult lessons related the growing-up process, regardless of your age or life attainment. You must be willing to learn how to take responsibility for your life in new ways that will be unfamiliar and uncomfortable. You must be willing to move through periods of uncertainty, confusion, fear and doubt. You must be able to find an opportunity in the process of lifelong learning rather than viewing it as a problem.
A. This is not a “one size fits all” practice. We accept clients on a case-by-case basis. Assessing basic mental health and suitability to handle this work is a natural function of our discovery session.
A. Training for quality of life and higher performance is not for everyone. Moving out of your old normal “familiar discomfort” zone is the work of many lifetimes.

We'd rather have fewer long-lasting deep relationships than many fleeting surface relationships.
