A Guide To Effective Parenting


This guidebook provides important information on effective parenting, beginning with a short description of childhood development and needs, later moving onto different approaches to parenting, how to identify and deal with risk behavior in children, the underlying causes of behavior problems in children and teenagers, and finally, a number of ideas for improving parent-child relationships.

How to Interpret Dreams


This guidebook provides important information on the origin, structure and purpose of dreams, different categories of dreams, the process of dream-interpretation and how to work within one’s own dreams as a method of self-empowerment. 

The information is based on current research as well as many years of personal dream-work and counselling experience. The guide also provides a number of hypothetical case studies and interpretations so that the reader can view the techniques of interpretation in action within proper dream contexts.


 

The Power of Symbols, Ritual and Mystical Gestures


Freemasons, Rosicrucians, members of other brotherhoods as well as any person who is interested in metaphysics and sacred wisdom will enjoy this publication, which explores the role of the mind in bringing about powerful inner experiences and development resulting from symbols, ritual and sacred gestures. The book is especially written to help improve the understanding and insights of members of societies and brotherhoods who make extensive use of symbols and ritual. It explains the important involvement of the subconscious mind in bringing about inner revelation.


 

In Search of the Oracle: A Book of Spiritual Philosophy


The book deals with topical subject matter in a society where we are constantly encouraged to find ourselves and to live our purpose.  In Search of the Oracle can help you find the answers to the burning questions you might be asking if you’re lost, or if you’re searching for your truth.  

Written in a metaphoric, narrative style, In Search of the Oracle can be compared to ‘The Pilgrims Progress’, in which a student embarks on a journey of self-discovery up a mountain to find his inner self,  which assumes the role of an old man, an oracle of great knowledge. 


 

Living on the Edge of Darkness


Living on the Edge of Darkness provides a glance into the mind of someone who has suffered from depression. It also highlights the journey of self-discovery of the author, in which he wrestled with many questions such as ‘Who am I really?’‘What is actually going on in the world?’‘What is real?, and ‘What is the true meaning of suffering, life and death?’

MY AREAS OF EXPERTISE

 


I am registered with the South African Board for People-Practice as a chartered professional in learning and development (CHRP 5049). This means that having a PhD in Psychology as well as SETA qualifications in learning facilitation (US 117871) and outcomes–based assessments (US 115753), I offer a properly structured, scientifically-based approach to learning and development. What sets my approach apart from that of other motivational coaches or speakers, is that I tailor my approach to each person and also work on a subconscious level to change self-limiting programs and beliefs.

Mindfulness

Developing mindfulness usually means coaching clients to reach a new understanding of themselves, their circumstances and their options in life, as well as training them in new skills designed to improve mental focus, thinking and creativity.

Personal Development

Development can take place in many areas of a person’s life, including one’s level of mindfulness, self-insight, emotional wellness, critical thinking and moral or spiritual ethics and values.

Emotional Intelligence

EI is becoming very important in a world in which success in business, as well as your personal life, depends on your ability to show understanding, to express empathy for others and to have good relationships.

Critical Thinking

I teach clients to approach the world with a healthy scepticism and think independently and critically, to recognise inconsistencies and common mistakes in reasoning, to cut through the ‘hype’, to uncover hidden agendas and to approach problems logically and systematically.

Spiritual Development

For those who are seeking an understanding of spiritual and ethical principles, I offer mentoring in intuitive and spiritual development.

Trauma Counselling

I am also able to offer trauma counselling training to lay-counsellors, trauma centre volunteers, employee assistance programme workers, and those who work with death and the dying on a everyday basis, such as paramedics and hospice workers.

A new view of spiritual development

In my previous article I proposed a new theory of the human soul as the complete and perfect essence of each human formed (created) in a Universal Mind. In this case, the existence of a Universal Mind I derived from the idea of a collective unconscious described by...

A new view of self-development

I know that there are many people who are very cautious or are ‘sitting on the fence’ when it comes to topics like psychic development and metaphysics, and I think this is due to the fact that these fields have received bad press by using their own jargon such as...
