DR Jimmy Henderson
Some of Jimmy’s Books
This practical guide was written to help those without formal training – benefit from the more than 30 years of experience of the author and seasoned trauma counsellor – Dr Jimmy Henderson. In this guide Jimmy looks to specifically prepare lay-counsellors, nurses, teachers, parents and other caregivers with the necessary tools to manage difficult situations when dealing with a victim of a traumatic event.
This book offers a brief background into human psychological and emotional needs. It also includes guidelines on important non-verbal communication skills, focusing specifically on simple listening skills, such as feedback and reflection, which can be adopted by any person, without necessarily being trained as a counsellor.
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.
This guidebook provides important information on possible reasons for the breakdown of relationships, introduces new approaches to understanding one’s partner and dealing with conflict and finally, supplies a number of realistic ideas for improving long-term relationships.
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.
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.
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 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?’
This book gives the reader a completely new view of the possibilities in life, changing from the mundane to the Conscious and introduces the possibility of achieving dreams and ambitions never before thought to be possible.
If you are a serious seeker you will love this book because it will take you to a higher state of consciousness than you ever experienced before. It will take your mind to new levels of human functioning, connecting to higher levels of Self and Spirit. It offers some advanced processes and also contains extensive guidelines on working with energy and the development of advanced psychic skills, including entry into the deeper dimensions of mind.
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.
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.
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.
E.I. 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.
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.
For those who are seeking an understanding of spiritual and ethical principles, I offer mentoring in intuitive and spiritual development.
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.
