Your presenters:

Dr. William PettitWilliam F. Pettit Jr., M.D.
Dr. William Pettit Jr. is co-owner with his wife, Linda, of 3 Principles Intervention LLC. He and Linda reside in the Irish Hills, southwest of Ann Arbor Michigan.

Dr. Pettit has taught the Nature of the Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought as the cornerstone of his psychiatric practice since 1983. He teaches the Principles in seminars; graduate courses, residential programs for individuals, families and small groups; and via phone consultations.

He is a recognized educator in the Three Principles intervention, has presented at many national and international conferences, and has consulted with numerous clients both nationally and internationally. He was certified by Sydney Banks as a teacher of the Three Principles.


Linda Sandel-PettitDr. Linda Sandel Pettit
Dr. Linda Sandel Pettit currently serves as Dean of the Graduate College and Director of Counselor Education for Siena Heights University, a Michigan-based Catholic University offering master's level degrees in counseling, leadership, and teacher education both online and on 6 Michigan-based campuses.

Along with William F. Pettit, MD, psychiatrist, she co-owns 3 Principles Intervention LLC, through which she provides 3 Principles-based consulting, coaching, and training.

Dr. Pettit has provided leadership, program development, and services in mental health for over 30 years. She has worked in business, university, hospital, community agency, and private practice settings. Previously, she enjoyed a career in PR management.


Sue PankiewiczSue Pankiewicz
Sue was a teacher for eighteen years, working in mainstream and special education. Since 2006 she has worked in a variety of settings, teaching and sharing the Principles with individuals and groups. Sue loves to organise and support events that bring people together to inspire, share and deepen understanding.

When her daughter was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia at the age of 17, Sue found herself and her family thrust into a traumatic and frightening world. Sue personally had immense hope and belief in the possibility of recovery, but there was little evidence or support of that vision within the traditional approaches to mental health that were available at the time.  Sue's growing understanding of the Principles, along with that of her extended family, began the process of healing and the uncovering of peace of mind.

For the past ten years, Sue has collaborated, mentored, and shared her understanding of the Three Principles, whilst all the time embracing her own unfolding experience of life which never ceases to inspire and fascinate her as the transformative nature of this understanding works its magic.


timthumb.php.jpgMark Howard, Ph.D.
Dr. Howard is founder of the Principles Institute in Burlingame, California, USA. He is a licensed psychologist and is recognized as one of the pioneers who first brought the Three Principles into the field of psychology. Since 1982, Dr Howard has been teaching private clients, families, and business professionals.  Dr. Howard loves mentoring three principles practitioners to develop impactful and flourishing practices.

Dr. Howard has published a paper demonstrating the efficacy of the Three Principles in treatment. In 2008 he was awarded the "Outstanding Career Service" award by the Santa Clara Psychological Association for bringing Principles education to Santa Clara County in the United States.


Ian WatsonIan Watson
Ian Watson is an author, trainer, and consultant who has worked in the field of natural health and personal transformation since 1988. He founded The Insight Space in 2013 as a vehicle for his own Principle-based training programmes and seminars.  Ian has written four books and many published articles, created numerous audio programmes, and travelled extensively giving seminars, courses, and retreats around the world.

He became widely known as a speaker and writer in homeopathy, which he taught and practised for fifteen years. Ian's work is now based exclusively on the understanding of mind, thought and consciousness, uncovered by the late Sydney Banks. Learning these principles has proven to be the "missing link," pulling together all of the threads that Ian has explored during the past three decades.

Ian has taught the Principles to many groups in the UK and Ireland, and also in Croatia, Canada, Egypt, Finland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, and the Czech Republic. He also works as a consultant trainer for a multi-national company.

Karen then co-founded the Hawaii Counselling & Education Centre and trained with Christine Heath, Gordon Trockman and George Pransky.
