Glenn is a passionate believer in the role that therapy can play in helping people live a more fulfilling life and deal with difficult situations that may arise throughout. He provides a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for his clients to speak honestly and openly. He supports them to navigate and understand their difficulties while encouraging and supporting them to consider different choices. He works in a relational way, meaning that he believes the relationship with the client is key to the success of the therapy.

He is very interested in the role that communication plays in our lives, both our communication with others and our internal dialogue. He supports couples and groups to explore their communication patterns, helping them find alternative ways of expression so that they can feel heard.

Parenting challenges led him to the work of clinical psychologist, Marshall Rosenberg.
