'My main endeavor and objective is to help and guide my clients to achieve their goals by positively addressing the obstacles that stand in their way. I draw from my education to help my clients/patients but I I feel blessed that besides my qualification experience and training, it is from my own life thus far that I can draw from as much to help better my practice and help my clients. My travels taught me and continue to teach me a lot about human nature different cultures and how these influence people's lives. I have shared some of it in the very first book I wrote and was published in 2009 titled ‘Natural Beauty’. This book made the publishers bestseller list. A book that has helped many of my respected readers around the globe in areas such as, fashion and beauty, relationships, self Image, self confidence and self esteem to name just a few of the areas that this book has been useful to my readers'.

Wanda went on to write two more books - one of these was published in the year 2013 ( Once Upon a Time there was a Wild Tiger' which will be available on Amazon this year (2017) The 3rd is a Novel - it looks at the dismal inequality and abuse that many women still face and experience in their life. "The vast response and feedback, emails and messages I constantly receive make me realize that there are many people out there that need and want this kind of support. Sometimes just having someone to listen to what they have to say without judging them is enough to ease the confusion...but sadly some of them do not have that support 'network' nor the means to seek the help or support they need. I try to look into this aspect as well and help my clients in the best possible way I can"
Two years ago Wanda enrolled for her Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice which is ongoing towards completion next year. Here is where she also received her qualification and training in Hypnotherapy and Counseling. 'I continue to add to my skills and keep informed of the latest developments by enrolling in CPDs (Continuous Professional Development courses) attend seminars and conventions whenever I can to continuously develop and add to my existing knowledge and skills so that I can be in a position to offer the best cutting edge support to my clients'. To support her interest in specializing in Weight loss and Weight management she trained and qualified with DISTINCTION for her Diploma in Advanced Nutrition and Diet. She has effectively helped a number of people lose weight and maintain their weight loss. Her client base is growing rapidly day by day and they are from all over the globe. 'Continuous professional development is an ongoing process that is absolutely necessary if I am to offer my client the very best support they deserve and can count on. Her educational training and work experience has equipped her with the necessary tools to offer specialist support to help her clients achieve their goals.
'Added to all my qualifications and experience is my genuine desire to help others - Nothing gives me more pleasure to see my clients achieve their goals. I know that I absolutely love my life and my job and I know how wonderful and empowering that feels and I want all my clients to experience their own joys and achievements too'.
Wanda goes on to add "With everything I have learnt thus far with my educational and professional background and (CPDs) hands on experience, research, travels and my own life experiences I can say that there are indeed answers to help resolve problems or explore the right solutions to problems if we really want to. The core to this lies in your self-belief, the ‘never giving up on self’ attitude' and being brave to face the obstacles that life throws at you knowing that you can find solutions to deal with them and if you cannot do it on your own you can and should talk to someone - someone who cares, has the time for you, listens to you without judging you, and can stand by you through your difficulties. If that is not available for you in your own network it is not the end of the world as there is help available - but it is you who has to take that first step to seek the help. Please do not hesitate to go out there, and seek help - it will change your life for the better'.

'There is something else that I did not learn from books and it is the ability to feel 'empathy'. I am a naturally kind empathic individual - something that no book can teach us. In this profession it is one of the most important trait to help us help others. As I mentioned above - these traits and qualities cannot be learnt from books. These elements to our personality come from our upbringing and the environment we grow in' and our own lives. 'A life coach, a therapist, a counselor, a nutritionist, your GP or any practitioner in these areas of service to whom empathy does not come naturally is not the best choice for you as a client or a patient'. This is the one quality in a practitioner that will make a big difference in the outcome eventually' so look for these qualities in your practitioner'.
