I met my wife in 1969 and we married a year later. We tried our hand at farming on a smallholding outside Cape Town but later moved to George where I ran my own building design and survey business. It was there that our daughter was born.
Following my conversion to Christ in 1986, I attended Bible School and became involved in pastoral counselling. I studied Christian Counselling at the Rand Afrikaans University /Institute for Children and Adult Guidance. Following a call of God, we moved to the United Kingdom in 2002 and we both hold UK Citizenship.
We now live in southwest London where I am in full time private practice as a counsellor and systemic family practitioner. I am a member of theᠨref="http://www.acc-uk.org">Association of Christian Counsellors and the Association of Family Therapy
