I have worked with difference and diversity in different ways. I recognise the impact of different forms of oppression on personal development and self esteem and on the chances that are available.
… when a man comes to me for assistance, he can relay on me to help him understand the difficulties he experiences in his roles as a partner, father, son and worker. … I will help you to discover your fine strengths as a man, such as your self‐reliance and your willingness to take calculated risks, and the way you care for,and provide for others.
I am committed to working in anti-oppressive and inclusive ways.
I am happy to work both short or longer term with people.
Short-term work often involves specific issues and goals.
This is also true of longer-term work, but can give way to a more free-flow exploration of issues as they arise and many times to go deeper into the issues.
