My 48 years in private practice as a psychotherapist taught me to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual, and how to strengthen your positive values.
I hold a degree in psychology from Sir George Williams University in Montreal, a Master's in social work from McGill University in Montreal and a Doctorate in counselling from Columbia Pacific University in California for my dissertation, "Professional Love: The Hypnotic Power of Psychotherapy."
I'm the doting grandfather of Emma, Aidan, Jacob, Olivia, Clive, Jonah, Louisa and Holden. (All gorgeous and smart, of course).
I have spoken frequently at the National Guild of Hypnotists Convention. For nearly two decades I was Consulting Hypnotherapist to the Westside Medical Clinic in Montreal. I introduced Emotional Freedom Technique to Canada. And I was the first Professional Book Reviews Moderator for the on-line magazine Self-Help.
I'm the first Overseas Member of the Register for Evidence-Based Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy. I hosted the first hypnosis radio show on the Internet and, as The Online Shrink, I created NetHypnosis which provided private hypno-psychotherapy to individual clients around the world over the Internet.
