Individual Sessions

The individual sessions I offer align with how I guide small groups: providing some sense of flow and rhythm, facilitation, metaphors, stories, evocative imagery, poetry and reflections on what life is revealing. My role with another overlaps, and yet stands apart, from that of a therapist, coach or counsellor, focused on deep attentiveness and the art of open questions.


group Sessions

Dan offers group sessions in leadership, personal and professional development and spiritual growth, online and in-person at various locations. He uses the Circle of Trust approach, which is distinguished by principles and practices intended to create a process of shared exploration where people can find safe space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it. In the hands of a knowledgeable and skilled facilitator, this approach has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.
