Most of us will encounter painful, difficult, disturbing or simply unknown situations in our lives. My approach makes it possible to access the creativity and potential inherent in life’s challenges, and to discover that even the worst problems have the potential to become our greatest allies and resources.
Currently I’m researching on how unfinished issues in our histories including in our lineage and ancestry are reflected in some of our recurring problems like body symptoms and illnesses, addictions, relationship troubles and how these can be transformed.

As a gay man originally from Kenya, I have a deep interest in discovering and engaging with diversity issues that both enrich and trouble us as individuals and communities
