General Comments

The tools and techniques used in Marc’s Programs have a strong foundation in both Western neuro-science and Eastern philosophies. They are all about simplifying life. Modern research has found that “Mindfulness”, a state of awareness often promoted by Eastern philosophies, has measurable benefits on the size and structure of the executive functioning parts of our brain. Combined with powerful perception-change and cognitive restructuring strategies from more western, evidence-based modalities, a powerful mix for lasting change in a person’s life is available. More specifically, The Programs use techniques from, and are heavily focused on:

  • Neuro Linguistic Programming and other (verbal and non-verbal) language tools
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Mindfulness integrated CBT (MiCBT)
  • Positive Psychology
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Keirsey Temperament Sorter


Marc works primarily with -and has had specific training in- the above modalities.

He holds the following certifications:

  • Currently studying Master of Counselling at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC)
  • Master NLP Practitioner
  • Life Coach
  • AusIDentities Personality Types Facilitator
