Upcoming Events

The Crocodile Set Up©®

I developed what has become known as The Crocodile Set Up for addiction relapse cessation in 2015 and first presented it at the 1st Intl. Brainspotting Conference in Brazil in March 2016. Since then I have taught it all over the world

The feedback from therapists and clients world-wide has been nothing short of phenomenal.


I have developed a very simple way to use Brainspotting Therapy to support those who have addictions to stop relapsing. I have called it the Brainspotting “Crocodile Set Up” because I use the metaphor of a Crocodile for the Addiction Process.

I have taught the Brainspotting “Crocodile Set Up” to hundreds of therapists world-wide, and every week I receive feedback about the amazing results those therapists are having with their clients. In 2019, I will be teaching this method to several wonderful groups of Brainspotting trained therapists in:

  • Brasilia, Brazil (Feb, 2019)
  • Ljubljana, Slovenia (April, 2019)
  • Barcelona,. Spain (May 2019)
  • Los Angeles, USA (July 2019)
  • Sydney, Australia (late 2019)
  • Ottawa, Canada (April, 2020)

The pre-requisite for participating in the the Crocodile Set Up Addiction Resolution
Training, is a 3 day In-Person Phase One training in Brainspotting
