Finding Balance"Finding Balance" is a collection of insights, concepts, and stories designed to help readers develop healthier attitudes toward life, work, relationships, and the achievement of well-being.  It is informed by research and inspired by many years of counselling and therapeutic practice, and hundreds of hours as a workshop facilitator.  Originally published as "I can have fun on a school night!" it has been purchased by over 10,500 Canadians.

For more than four decades I have worked with clients to help them solve their 'living' issues and to encourage them to take better care of themselves.  Time in therapy has often been reduced by an on-target concept, such as those that fill the pages of this book.  These concepts help 'cut to the chase' and invite understanding and insight with a minimum of verbiage.




Communication & Relationships book cover"Communication and Relationships" is about real people with real problems and was written for people who seek understanding of the problems they face in their everyday lives.  It is for anyone living in an unproductive relationship, with feelings of distress, guilt, and anger or struggling to make a decision about that relationship.
They may come to appreciate that they are not alone, that others have similar issues and they found a way to proceed.  By reading these stories/concepts about people just like them, and seeing how they and the therapist dealt with the problem, perhaps they can learn how to better deal with their own issues.
In the book I share 110 different stories/concepts (learning opportunities) ranging from 1-3 pages in length.  Some additional topics include: stress, anger, grief, strokes, guilt, ego, self esteem, change, affairs, sex and power, abandonment, friendship, and more.
