John spent more than 30 years in the social service arena, often being confronted with situations most people simply couldn’t imagine. Having faced his own personal tragedies, as well as others, he sort out ways to deal with mental and emotional pain. He achieved this by exploring different religions and spirituality, practising meditation, and studying psychology.
John has a 35 year history as volunteer counsellor for ‘not for profit’ organisations, making him well experienced to give others the wealth of knowledge and experience, only someone who’s ‘been there’ can. He is down-to-earth, friendly and very approachable. He makes a serious subject more fun than it has the right to be!
