Ever since the Gutenberg Press was invented there have been printed pamphlets. These pamphlets were usually handed out to people one-by-one as they passed by on the street. They were used by politicians, merchants and religious groups and, in fact, by any individual or group who wanted to reach other people at the "grass roots" level. Pamphlets have helped to fill the gap between the spoken word and a whole book on a topic.
For several years as a counsellor and hypnotherapist I have used hand pamphlets and now I am very excited about using e-pamphlets to easily and quickly disseminate and broadcast information to thousands of people on psychological concepts and healing techniques. They can copy and carry these pamphlets with them and refer to them during their day-to-day affairs. Also they can send them to a friend very easily.
I hope that you find my e-pamphlets useful and helpful in your navigation through your life and through your daily joys and struggles.

The mysteries of eleusis The slogan that I use on my hypnosis web-site is, “What inside…What outside…Consider the Whole.” I suggest to my hypnotherapy clients that they practise melting their artificial boundaries and alienating dichotomies. I offer them a safe setting and trusting relationship in which to do so without undue fear of hurting themselves. Continue Reading
One reality or many? When I was a little boy, I built several tree houses throughout the vast park across from my childhood home. I shared some of these abodes with friends, others I kept as a secret, individual re-treat away from the “crazy adult world”, and still others as a place to feast on Continue Reading
The building blocks of self-esteem Over the past twenty years of dealing with clients in my counselling and hypnotherapy practice, I have found that the most frequently asked question is, “How do I raise my self-esteem?” Since clients are often confused about the difference between self-esteem and self-confidence, it may be helpful to clarify these Continue Reading
