About the Books
In Search of the Oracle, A Book on Spiritual Philosophy
Our inner being is a source of knowledge and power which we can approach daily in an attempt to answer many important questions on the meaning of life, on who and what we are, our ethics and morality, our world with its natural laws and so-called supernatural events and the existence of a higher spiritual reality and God. How we access this knowledge has been for many centuries the subject matter of science, psychology, philosophy, Theology and mysticism. I believe that these are ultimately all different approaches or paths to the same source of knowledge and revelation that is available to us deep within the levels of our own consciousness.
Multi-Dimensional Thinking takes your mind to the next level of functioning., where your ability to see, think, sense, feel and understand is dramatically enhanced. This empowers you to successfully integrate your IQ, EQ, and SQ in a process designed to unleash the true creative potential of your mind.
Multi Dimensional Perception
Journeys into different dimensions of reality. This book gives the reader a new view of the possibilities inherent in a Conscious mindset and the rewards of leading a meaningful life. This is high degree Rosicrucian wisdom which remains accessible because of the way the author sets the content out.The book introduces the possibility of achieving dreams and ambitions never before thought to be possible.
Living on the Edge of Darkness
This eBook is the result of such a period in the life of the author in which he battled with depression and passed through his own ‘dark night of the soul’. This was accompanied by a time of deep introspection during which he had to re-order his life and priorities and find the answers to a number of important questions, including ‘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 therefore reflects new perspectives gained by the author during this difficult time when he had to combine and apply all his life-experience and studies in science, philosophy, psychology, metaphysics and theology in order to find answers to these important questions (as well as others).
He offers these personal insights as a comfort to readers who may be experiencing the same feelings of loneliness and despair following an equally difficult period in their lives, and also provides practical advice on how to deal with the negativity and emotions that accompany such an experience.

A comprehensive guide to Crisis Counselling
Most counsellor training courses don't include some of the important aspects of counselling, such as non-verbal communication. However, research shows that only 7% of what we say is verbal. That leaves a 93% gap in what we understand when someone communicates with us. A comprehensive Guide to Crisis Counselling looks to fill that gap and equip counsellors, nurses, teachers, parents and other caregivers with the necessary skills to improve communication during counselling sessions.
Many novice counsellors get completely lost, or so entangled in the process, that it becomes difficult for them to focus entirely on the client and to skillfully provide counsel. The author believes that part of this is due to the fact that many courses are unstructured, specifically when it comes to specific outcomes. In A comprehensive Guide to Crisis Counselling, Jimmy Henderson has created a structured system, providing information in recognisable, progressive stages.
Both face-to-face and telephone counsellors will find A comprehensive Guide to Crisis Counselling a helpful tool in counselling for general and specific outcomes. Using this guide as a tool will help improve your counselling skills.
