Have a Look at Some of the Topics Covered by the Self Help eBooks On Offer

Below, you'll find a brief description of the various short, easy-to-read self help eBooks, which contain a distillation of the many insights I've had over the last 30 years of consulting with clients, and which explore topics such as:

Meditation – the 'how, when, where, and why' to this powerful technique, which will guide you through some easy steps to getting started on a regular basis.

Stress Management – who isn't stressed nowadays, and needing some constructive help in this arena? In this self help eBook you'll find handy ideas for managing life's anxieties and worries.

Sluggish Thyroid - this can be a major, underlying cause to many health problems, yet difficult to diagnose via the usual pathology tests.

• It is quite possible a 'sluggish thyroid' is the underlying basis driving many of your health issues, even though the doctors weren't able to pick up on it. This self help eBook will provide you with lots of useful and constructive insights.

• Read about a quick and simple home test, with which to find out for yourself whether your thyroid is a problem or not, while the eBook: 'Sluggish Thyroid' will explain how to improve your thyroid function.

• Learn how to help yourself via the power of your mind, using Creative Visualization techniques, and why this can help you resolve so many of your life problems - especially those pesky situations which keep repeating themselves!

• Another self help eBook on this site, explores constructive ways through which to deal with the inevitable Suffering found in life; something which all humans eventually have to face.

• The eBook: 'Lifenotes - a user's guide to making sense of life on planet earth' delves into a wide range of metaphysical or spiritual ideas, which can give so much more 'oomph' to managing this hectic, crazy and often confusing experience called Life.

An Inspiring Thought to Help Motivate You in Your Life Journey

Over the decades of consulting with many clients, one of the basic concepts underpinning much of my work has been the idea that:

Knowledge is Power - it gives you the option to make more informed, and thus more constructive choices in Life.

Keeping this concept in mind, I invite you to dive right in and explore this site.

May the self help eBooks and free, alternative health articles provide you with an enhanced sense of self empowerment as you discover, within this information, many complementary answers to your health and life challenges.


Knowledge empowers; intuition guides – both are needed to succeed in Life’s Journey.

(keep in mind this site was only launched in late Aug’11, and is still under construction, with much more to come, hence you might like to bookmark this site, and revisit it from time to time to delve into the newly added, free material that will continue to accumulate as this website grows)
