The most preventable struggles I come into contact with are Self-Esteem, Identity, Relationship Conflict, Finding Meaning, Anxiety, and Youth at Risk, and Substance Abuse.
These obstacles present themselves on all socio-economic levels, across all ages, and in what often seems or feels like a healthy family environment. Oftentimes it is no one's fault, there is no one to blame, sometimes it is just the way things work out.
However; if we notice our family, partners, other loved ones, and especially our children struggle - and we take a passive stance, we are acting irresponsibly. I have a saying for this behaviour: "Our heads in the sand can harm our loved ones ..."
Therefor an approach of preventative education can mitigate or avoid the risk of misunderstanding and emotional pain, which often ends in hopelessness, and self-destructive behaviours and cycles.
It is to this end that I do Live You Tube talks, present lectures, facilitate group workshops, and live online discussions to assist subscribers and our loved ones to identify the obstacles and risks they are sure to encounter at various stages of their lives. Viewers can call in or comment online, real time, to have questions answered. As of January 2023 our online streaming community has grown to over 4370 subscribers (no subscription fee payable).
I also conduct these workshops and lectures at schools, clinics, and youth programs, or in smaller focus groups at my practice in Church Street, Stellenbosch.
