Aside from his book on therapy, John is also working on a novel based in WWII, partly based on true story.
He is experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with self-assertion, self-esteem, relationships, anxiety states and such states that might include obsessive compulsive behaviours (OCD), panic attacks, agoraphobia and phobias. He has worked with addictions, loss and depression, stress and trauma (overwhelming experiences that go beyond the realm of stress). He has also worked with borderline personality disorder and dissociative states, though in some instances this usually requires a more structured approach to the therapeutic provision.
