History 1997-2o17: Peak Learning & The Swingle Clinic
The Swingle Clinic was a retirement project of Dr. Swingle senior (AKA dad). He was retiring from Mclean Hospital; a lecturing position at Harvard University in Boston and a full professorship at Ottawa University. The thought was to have a small practice one or two days a week so that lazing around on a boat on the West Coast in his later years would not become too intellectually boring. At the time I had just finished my 1st MA and was climbing the professional ladder working in teaching, curriculum development, and management at local colleges not feeling too happy with either the pace or politics of my emergent career. I was musing with the idea of going into business on my own. So, as family often do, we aligned. I opened an educational service then called Peak Learning and my father his private practice.
We were in two tiny side by side offices in an old historical building in Yaletown (now long since torn down for a great tower). Well the rest is history: Within 5 years we grew to bursting. A full clinical staff working 6 days a week and covering ½ of the 6th floor of the current location on Melville St downtown Vancouver, Canada. At the time were the largest and arguably the most advanced Neurotherapy practice in North America –before Neurotherapy was really on clinical radar. I also went back to school to cross over from educational work to clinical work and obtained my Certification in Neurotherapy, a second MA in Psychology,… and why not a PhD too! Now 20 years later, Neurotherapy has expanded exponentially and a few former Swingle Clinic Associates have happily branched out on their own. I too have spread my wings, leaving the Swingle clinic in 2017 to focus more on writing and local and international presentations. –But still see a few independent clients at what I call ‘The Clinic Room” in downtown Vancouver (for booking inquiries use contact form above). Today, we are trying to get Dr. Swingle Senior on his little boat more –but he still prefers his corner office at the clinic!
As one of the forefathers and key developers of Neurotherapy itself, Dr. Swingle Senior is still actively practicing, authoring books and papers and leading hardware and product development to continue to foster advancement of cutting edge practice. It’s still his show!
