Pam is particularly known for her exposition of Ericksonian Psychotherapeutic principles and is a celebrated story teller and pioneer in utilising therapeutic storytelling in the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety. She has recorded two published CDs of therapeutic storytelling which address dependence issues, self esteem and anxiety through creative cultivation of emotional self-awareness, resilience, self-fulfilment and reality based optimism. She is a frequent and sought after writer who is published in many trade and other publications, including a series of interviews with some of the leading Ericksonian Psychotherapists of our time. Her work has also been featured in “Therapy Today” and “The Huffington Post” and she is a frequent radio commentator, mostly for BBC. Her training is renowned for being creative, fun, challenging and within a safe environment, bringing together tremendously diverse groups into harmonious and uplifting shared experience.
