Being a Clinical Psychologist and a Christian has been a long learning curve. Sometimes a confusing and conflicting experience. During my process of working through the maze of psychology and trying to fit a Biblical basis for understanding and helping people, I found a passion and maybe even a gift of transferring what I’ve learned.
My private practice led to an experience of being limited in my impact, although one-on one consultations are powerful and effective, I wanted to reach a wider audience. I became aware of a need in communities to be empowered with the knowledge of psychology and life coaching. I want to share the ideas and knowledge I have gained with others who could benefit from it and might not be able to afford it. Consequently, Matters of the Soul started.
My wife Elsie is a great life partner and walks with me through life’s ups and downs. Our two wonderful children, Amelia and Benjemin, keeps it real and exciting! The difficulties of living keeps me on my knees, where I am really at my best. My relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is the spring from which all of this flow, truly where I find Life.
I am a peoples' person by nature and love being there for people in their time of need.
I contribute to Matters of the Soul in an administrative role and also as Erich's wife I walk the road alongside him.
I enjoy doing life together with him and our beatiful two children.
I love people. I love to see how people grow. To give my time to make change possible and the process as easy as possible brings me great joy.
I am married to Quintus and thoroughly enjoy our journey together.
i in love with life and sharing it with people is part of my involvement in Matters of the Soul.
I have always had a love for people and psychology. As I've gone through the different stages of my life this passion has only intensified. Being a mother, a wife and a child of God I feel so honored to be able to assist, help and love people on their journey to living a fulfilled life.
My main focus is always to be the best representation of Christ's love that I can possibly be and be lead be the Holy Spirit in everything I do. I'm a straight shooter who likes to challenge preconceptions, this means I believe that hope is never lost.
It's an amazing and exciting feeling to be able to merge God's Word and the science of psychology and see how lives are transformed!
" Life is not just black or white, we live in shades of grey, and grey can be confusing and uncomfortable."
I am a mother and a wife and often find myself in these grey and confusing areas. For this reason I have always had a keen interest in the human mind and behavior. I am currently busy with my Honors degree in Psychology and find it both fascinating and interesting. Through studying the mind I came to understand myself better but also realized that everybody is ok in their own way and we should not allow society to make us feel guilty about who and what we should be.
God says in the Bible that we will perish due to our lack of knowledge.
I truly believe that this knowledge is not only about God’s character but it’s also knowledge about ourselves and who we are in/through Christ.
It’s a privilege to me to be a part of Matters of the Soul where we help others that are stuck or controlled by their own limiting beliefs to break free from the ideology created by society, and to live a life filled with gratitude and blessings. Psychology and the Word of God is a powerful combination!
