Success
consists in the full use of one’s powers
in the direction of excellence.
~ John F. Kennedy                                                                       


He who unceasingly strives upward,
him we can save.
~ Frederick Nietzsche                                                                      

 
 
In this section you will find links to websites, help lines and books which I have found most consistently useful and which I recommend to my clients.


In order to read and respond to articles I have written, please visit my blog,
"MORE DAY TO DAWN . . ."

Apart from initial links of general interest, the following resources touch on three areas:

             • FAMILY LIFE
               (parenting, couple relationship)

             • EMOTIONS AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
               (managing stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues)

             • PSYCHOLOGICAL TYPE
               (individual personality styles which define us to some degree and influence our choices, actions and relationships).
