I have spent a lifetime travelling, learning from many and studying natural transformational processes that are found within living systems that we are part of. I work as an Eco and Transformational Psychologist integrating transformatioanl learning along with many years experience as a trauma and abuse recovery psychologist. My motivation is to share this knowledge with others so they can escape the constraints of separation imposed by the modern world and experience these processes for themselves. I support people in individual healing and growth as well as groups via talks, seminars, workshops and training. This website serves to provide an overview of what I do. You can find out more about me, my group services along with transformational processes below and go to at www.thenaturecode.com. There you will find the events I provide along with a blog and additional information. You can stay in formed by subscribing to the newsletter. There is also a facebook page where I post events and information.
I support people who prefer individual learning and transformational work. Clients include those who wish to gain transformation outcomes from psychological or spiritual healing, and those who desire mentoring or coaching in their wider transformational work. I have maintained my psychological registration and Medicare or private health rebates may be available for Australian residents when psychological healing is being addressed. Discuss individual transformational work with me, or mentoring/coaching in your life work by emailing email@example.com or calling me on 0407988269
I enjoy working with people who have a spiritual world view. Over my years as a eco and transformational psychologist simple principles have become apparent. They include:
- The qualities we need to resolve our particular psychological difficulty are nearly always the qualities that we need to pursue our goals and direction in life. It is as if we are being presented with the learning opportunities we need for our growth and development to fulfil our purpose. If we do not learn from these experiences they usually are repeated and intensified until we do. With this additional learning we can then move on to new experiences in our life that contribute to our learning and accomplishment.
- At a fundamental level how well we do in the world is determined by how well we process and integrate life experience. After all, this is what drives our learning, growth, and development.
- Spiritual Values are more than concepts. They connect us with consciousness, energy, information and energise our healing and transformatioanl processes.
My therapeutic approach is to attend to the processes within the individual to optimize their learning experience and to enhance outcomes that are important to them. By including the spiritual in this work you gain access to tremendous resources and consciousness that informs process. I like to keep the therapeutic process simple as I do in all of my work. Rarely is it complicated, and rarely is there a need to rehash or re-experience the trauma of the past.

The integration of Indigenous Wisdom with systems information coming from new sciences shows a way forward for a sustainable and just future. I have been fortunate enough to travel widely throughout the world and have had many learning and exchange opportunities with indigenous people. The Aboriginal people of Australia are unique in that they are the longest continuous culture with the longest continuous story tradition on the planet. Over one hundred thousand years of continuous occupation is plenty of time to work it out. I collaborate actively with my First Nations brothers and sisters in cultural and spiritual exchange programs.
Like all indigenous populations throughout the world however, the trauma of colonisation flows downstream to the present day and has been profoundly disruptive. There is recognition among Aboriginal people that the healing and reclaiming of cultural integrity must come first; and from within culture. Western psychology has largely failed them and is seen by many as another form of Colonisation in that they are required to accept a Western World view to benefit from it.
I have been fortunate to develop strong friendships with Aboriginal people of the Nyoongar Nation in Western Australia. This has initiated an ongoing conversation that has evolved over time to reveal shared values, common understanding, deep connection and common purpose. As a consequence I have accepted invitations to be involved in culturally initiated projects to address the profound need for healing and restoration of cultural integrity that must come first. Then programs will be provided to share wisdom with and for culturally appropriate education of non-aboriginal people.
At this stage my involvement is to make my knowledge of trauma and abuse recovery available in a systems context so that it is culturally appropriate and can be integrated by my Aboriginal colleagues into the healing programs they are developing. Together we will be running these programs and training Aboriginal people to run them. If you are interested go to www.maarkoodjal.org.au and explore a cultural project initiated by Dennis Simmonds. If you want to stay in touch with how this work progresses vian my involvement it is best you go to www.thenaturecode.com and subscribe to the newsletter. Via this you will receive updates and be advised of cultural programs for non-aboriginals. These will include local events and ‘On Country’ excursions.
I provide seminars and public speaking for people who seek more information about, or are looking for a conceptual entry point into process and transformational understanding. I draw on my knowledge of the following areas: The current scientific/industrialised world view and how it constrains natural self organising and transformational processes; How to release these constraints; The new emerging process worldview that offers sustainable solutions for self and community; And how to allow transition into the new and associated transformations of consciousness to effortlessly occur. Attending these seminars will enable a much deeper engagement with other workshops and nature immersion events I offer. Go to www.thenaturecode.com for more information.

From time to time I accompany people into healthy wilderness and guide them through a process of deep spiritual connection for meaningful relationship and re-enchantment of life. Many benefits emerge including healing opportunity, access to information, release of wisdom, and discovery of the spiritual medicine of individual nature elements and landscape. The aim is to respect, connect, process, and step into our roles of co-creators with Mother Earth, and each other, for a sustainable and peaceful future.
