TO ONE SESSIONS
in person either face to face or by phone or Skype with individuals
from a training and mentoring perspective to share both my knowledge
and experience to assist in developing key skills in communication.
Communication is not just with others but with our selves to see
the strengths we already have in place and explore the areas where
we have the knowledge but certain blocks remain in place to a clear
and effective communication with a whole host of people. Our team
with whom we work, those outside of our team and of course with
either clients or as in the case of healthcare patients.
ADVANCED MEDICAL TREATMENT
returning to the UK in 2006 I built on my international experience
and connections and established a company which offered advanced
medical treatments to people worldwide.
I continue to work with both patients, their family and their doctors
to facilitate exploring treatment options, providing the correct
medical information and then arranging travel from their country
of origin to the hospital located abroad to receive treatment.
you are a doctor, patient family member or friend who is looking
for treatments which
are currently not offered in your county then please visit the
section of my website which details both the treatments and
medical conditions treated.
with the patient or family member to provide accurate information
that assessment of treatment offered can be completed quickly and
efficiently during an emotionally stressful time for not only the
patient but the family member who is working on behalf of the patient
in exploring advanced treatment options.
with the patients doctor and healthcare team to provide accurate
and relevant information
a treatment which the medical team in the patients country may not
be aware of. Often recent scans and other medical information is
a crucial element to successful treatment intervention. For example
with CyberKnife Sterotactic Radiosurgery the size of the cancerous
tumour is crucial in regard to being able to effectively treat.
If even short delays in accurate assessment occur then a patient
who could have been successfully treated is no longer a potential
candidate for this lifesaving treatment.
with the centre or hospital healthcare team to enable clear communication.
centres and hospitals are overwhelmed with contact from people who
are looking for treatment. Often they do not take in the information
provided and are effectively seeking a 'miracle cure'. Research
has shown in serious often life threatening illness how a person
goes through what is termed 'anticipatory grieving' and the first
stage of this process is denial.
I work with the medical team including the patients doctor as well
as the doctors offering advanced medical treatment and support the
person through the process so that unrealistic expectations do not
emerge from initial contact or inquiry.
have been running a groups since 1984 for a variety of people and
organisations. I am a trained group leader and know the dynamics
of how both groups are structured and how they function so as to
be enabled to produce the most creative and thereby productive goals.
The aim of the group content covers a wide range reflecting my thirty
years experience in medical facilitation and working with people.
Some examples are working with medical teams to share both my experience
and some of the common problems or blocks to accurate and effective
communication and how we can work to resolve such difficulties.
Unrealistic expectations are a common feature and rather than denying
discussion we can find ways to work with rather than to expect to
resolve such common blocks.

have been a trainer in both university and non university settings
since 1984. I have also worked in over thirty countries and am therefore
sensitive to the wide ranging cultural differences which operate.
As with group development my training courses reflect a broad range
and do not just focus on healthcare issues. I work with my colleagues
in areas of loss transition and change which can be due to illness,
or life events and in my role I use my skills and insights from
my career in counselling and psychotherapy to work with the person
in mentoring capacity. 'I now see people and not patients' and mentor
people who are working with natural life transitions be these in
their career or personal life.
recently worked with a hospital team in Germany to help four key
members of the initial assessment team to help them work through
communication issues both within their respective departments as
well as with patients family members. One of the common issues that
patients do not finally decide to visit for treatment even though
treatment is clearly an option. I have been successful in enabling
the patient to make that all important action decision by acting
as a third person within the triangle of patient - foreign hospital
- independent outside and empathic agent.

best way to make contact is via email at the general office email
