Biography

I am a senior educator and professional lead in the counselling programme at BTI. Prior to this appointment, I was programme director for the counsellor education programme at the University of Auckland, and before that an Associate Professor at the Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawke’s Bay. I have been a school counsellor and the director of a student services centre at Mangere College in South Auckland, and much of my earlier career was spent teaching Drama and English in the United Kingdom.
Currently, my research and writing in counselling and psychology concern themselves with exploring the position of individuals, clients, and patients who are challenged by crises, or who might be encountering personal losses. I am also interested in the role that spiritual dimensions of experience play in post-traumatic growth.
I am also co-editor of the New Zealand Journal of Counselling and have a very keen interest in theatre and performance, which sometimes influences my work and behaviour more than it should.

I am married to Jen, and we have many children…
