I have a professional background in psychotherapy, pastoral ministry and education as well as a personal background in both traditional and contemporary forms of psychological and spiritual development. My therapy training and studies have principally been in the Jungian, Transpersonal and Ericksonian traditions. I have also trained in Sandplay Therapy, including some study in Zurich with Dora Kalff, the therapy's principal developer.

I have been presenting and organising programs on Jungian psychology since 1988, including lecture and workshop presentations for the C.G. Jung Society of Melbourne.

My own Jungian studies includes programs of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, the Jung Center of Houston (with Ira Progoff), the C.G. Jung Analytical Psychology Club in London, the Esalen Institute and the Center for Applications of Psychological Type.

I have organised two large four day public conferences on Jungian psychology and spirituality in Melbourne - the Journey Into Wholeness conference in 1992 and the Soul, Psyche & Mandorla Consciousness conference in 1996. Presenters at these conferences included Robert A. Johnson, Jungian analyst and author (United States); David Tacey, author of books on Jungian and spirituality themes (Australia); Lauren Artress, psychotherapist and authority on labyrinths (United States); and Dirk Evers, analyst and lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich (Switzerland).

I have also been a presenter at several Jungian conferences in the United States and a participant at a number of other Jungian conferences, including the 1989 Association for Psychological Type International conference in the United States and the 1992 Einsiedeln Conference in Switzerland.

I have also organised three public Enneagram of Personality conferences (two in Melbourne and one in England) and have been a presenter at a number of other psychology and therapy conferences, including the 2000 International Enneagram Association (IEA) conference in San Francisco (see link below to recordings from this conference).
