It is an honor for In Focus to have among us leading professionals providing pro bono consultation, support and guidance in our development of practices.
Garry has a B.Ed. and a Masters in Counselling and is a registered counsellor with the Counselling Association of South Australia and the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia. He is an Advanced Instructor for the William Glasser International and works locally, nationally and overseas in this capacity.
Garry’s professional career has involved periods as a high school teacher, classroom consultant, counsellor, support services manager, school leader, and working in the private sector as a rehabilitation counsellor and as a group educator in communication and assertion skills. For 6 years he was the Principal of Bowden Brompton Community School. It is the only alternative high school in South Australia that enrolls students through the interagency process due to their complex family, welfare and emotional issues.
During his busy career and in his leadership position, Garry has maintained an ongoing parallel interest in counselling and educating adults and adolescents in assertion skills and personnel growth conducting workshops for school staffs, parents and allied professionals in health and welfare.
Garry retired from education in August 2012. Currently, Garry sees himself as semi-retired, spending his time doing some training work in Choice Theory, Reality Therapy and Lead Management as well as babysitting his 22 month old grandson one day a week, house renovating, fishing, sailing and camping and generally enjoying the benefits of retirement after a 40 year working career.
