WHAT TYPES OF ILLNESS DO YOU TREAT?
I will approach any symptomatic non-coherence in the body to identify cause and help facilitate a shift at a physical, mental or emotional level.
HOW DO YOU TREAT THEM? WHAT KINDS OF TECHNIQUES OR TREATMENT DO YOU USE?
After consultation with a client, I will use any or all of the disciplines I have studies, as required. Generally I use applied kinesiology (muscle checking) to ascertain what the innate wisdom of the body requires in order to heal itself at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
DO YOU SET AN OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN FOR YOU CLIENTS?
When appropriate I will set an overall treatment plan including, hands-on work, correct nutrition and vitamin or mineral supplementation which I will suggest but not prescribe.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PRACTICING?
HOW LONG DO YOU INTEND TO PRACTICE?
I will practice until I no longer have satisfaction from my work which will not be in the foreseeable future.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS LOCATION? HOW IS ACCES TO PUBLIC TRANSIT OR PARKING?
I practice from home and there is good access to public transit and parking in a suburban street with no meters.
DO YOU ALLOW FAMILY MEMBERS TO BE IN THE TREATMENT ROOM IF THEY DESIRE TO DO SO?
Generally not – unless it is a parent of a small child or a disabled person. Of course, in couples work both partners are present. For proxy or phone in sessions, I do not require the presence of a sentient being whether human or animal.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR APPROACH, IN OTHER WORDS, YOUR BEDSIDE MANNER?
I have learned to utilise every skill that I have ever learned to ‘hold the space’ for my clients. Through my rigorous training in my various disciplines, I have learned how to empathise, how to deal with what we describe as ‘an energy constriction,’ when emotion and tears come to the surface at a physical, mental or emotional level. When to remain silent, and just acknowledge that the individual is being heard. I am a trained Hospice Councilor.
WHAT ASSOCIATIONS DO YOU BELONG TO?
I belong to the Resonance Repatterning Association (www.resonancerepatterning.org) and Jin Shin Jyutsu Inc. (www.jinshinjyutsu.com).
HOW ARE EMERGENCY CALLS OR APPOINTMENTS HANDLED?
I do not do crisis intervention, however I attempt to accommodate urgent calls for help as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours. I do not work on weekends or public holidays.
DO YOU SEE PEOPLE ON WEEKENDS OR EVENINGS?
WHAT ARE YOUR DAYS OR HOURS OF OPERATION?
Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. I generally see my last client at 4:30 pm since a session can take up to one and a half hours.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR CONSULTATION BY PHONE IF YOUR CLIENT HAS QUESTIONS? DO YOU RETURN CALLS PROMPTLY?
I do consult by telephone, however I make myself available if a client has further questions or reactions after a session with me. If necessary I will do a healing modality by proxy for the client. I return calls as promptly as I can; same day or following day, but not on weekends.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR THIS?
No. I charge for phone in sessions from all over the world. The client bears the cost of the call.
ARE YOU USUALLY ON TIME FOR APPOINTMENTS OR DO YOU GET OFF SCHEDULE? IF SO, HOW MUCH TIME CAN THE CLIENT EXPECT TO WAIT?
I make it a rule never to keep a client waiting, unless under extraordinary circumstances, since I dislike being kept waiting in doctors’ or dentists’ waiting rooms.
WILL YOU SET UP A FIFTEEN MINUTE CONSULTATION IF REQUESTED? AN INTRODUCTORY IF YOU WILL?
The short answer is no. I generally refer first-time clients to my website or I assure them that I will give them a full explanation of the process at our first appointment. Thereafter the client needs to take ‘a leap of faith’.
GENERALLY HOW LONG IS A FIRST APPOINTMENT?
For Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu and BodyTalk – one hour. For Resonance Repatterning – up to two hours.
WHAT IS THE FEE SCHEDULE?
1 hour - $60.00 ˝ hour - $40.00 (first consultation 1 hour)

$125.00 for up to the first 1 ˝ hours
over 1 ˝ to 2 hours $150.00
Generally a RR session takes 1 ˝ hours.
MAY I HAVE A COPY OF YOUR FEE STRUCTURE?
DO YOU ALLOW INSTALLMENT PAYMENTS?
Under certain circumstances I will accept post-dated cheques.
DO YOU NEGOTIATE FEES FOR THOSE WHO ARE SHORT OF FUNDS?
Generally not and certainly not for first-time clients, until, under certain circumstances, after I have got to know a client, I may break that rule.
FINALLY I WOULD LIKE TWO REFERENCES THAT I CAN SPEAK WITH. IS THAT POSSIBLE?
