is always surprising when you chat quietly and learn about someone's
history. Also, see below about his charity climb of Mount Kilimanjaro!
Philip is a tireless worker and advocate for the profession of psychotherapy, but thinking of him as just an
administrator denies a rich and testing past.
Listen to Philip's tales of his life in the military, dealing
with the trauma of death and his own personal injuries. It is
intriguing to hear how his military life and his work repatriating
servicemen and their families after they returned home was a direct
influence on his journey into the counselling profession. He also
discusses his efforts now as CEO of the Australian Counsellors
Association and how he thinks counsellors need to respond to the
upcoming challenges of the profession.

essential element of therapeutic practice. As much as the 'left brain' can make sense of such a
expansive subject, Terry Marks-Tarlow has done it as well as is possible. She leaves the practitioner with a much
clearer grasp of the intuitive process and how to use this to beneficial effect in practice. Learn more about Terry at
