I have an integrated approach, drawing on a range of disciplines, enabling me to choose the most appropriate method for my client’s needs. My style is thought-provoking and pragmatic. I believe in working at my client’s pace with a constant readiness to explore issues while maintaining an appropriate level of challenge.
