She teaches Process Work in the UK and internationally, and with her husband Jean-Claude, is co-founder of CFOR, supporting community forums in conflict zones and diverse communities. Topics range from post-war issues to building multi-cultural and diverse societies, and community mental health. In Croatia, with Lane Arye, she co-led a post-war, community building project from 1996-2002, supported by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.

She co-directed SPIRIT (2001), with London’s Improbable Theatre (and the Royal Court Theatre), which has played in festivals internationally.

MSc Uni Zuerich, Dipl. PW
I practice in Northwest London with individuals, couples, organizations and communities. A co-founder of the RSPOPUK Training Program, I teach and apply Process Work and World Work (conflict resolution) internationally for students and people interested in its wide spectrum applications. A co-founder and faculty member of the original Process Work Centre in Zurich in the late 70's, I then co-founded centers for Process Work in Zurich Switzerland, Portland USA, Slovakia, RSPOPUK, the International Association of Process Workers IAPOP, coordinated and organized the first conference on Process Work in 1983 in Zurich and the Worldwork 2008 in London.
I’ve focused with my wife and inspiration Arlene over the past decades on applying process work in many settings, from mental health (individual and family work as well as large staff forums), children’s violence at school, psychotherapy, counseling, to facilitating forums on post-war reconciliation and economic recovery in Croatia and other parts of the Balkan. My interest in the arts has led me to focus on coaching artists and develop the Artist’s ‘Arts Atelier’, a place in space and time where artists meeting their limits learn from them rather than shy away. I’ve recently written a chapter on the contribution of process work to body psychotherapy (London: Open Press University – September 2005).
