Steven is the director of Relate Counselling a specialist relationship team in Auckland, New Zealand.

He is cross trained in Imago Relationship Therapy, Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Faced with the challenge of leading and training a multi-disciplinary team and dissatisfied with outdated models of neurology underpinning popular couples therapy he developed the integrated Whole Brain Therapy (WBT) approach.

The WBT approach to couples and relationship therapy combines recent insights from relational neurobiology and the most effective practical processes from his advanced studies in couples therapy.

Steven brings a strong integrative pedagogic contribution to IRT and the faculty. Steven also teaches the brief introduction to IRT method.
