Bio & media: Published books
My first book on handwriting analysis was launched in 1991, three years before the birth of Amazon. In 1995, when when my second graphology text was published, it featured on their website alongside only four other books on the same subject, whereas now Amazon lists over 1,000 graphology titles!
There is a simple explanation for this earlier lack of interest: at the time, particularly in the English-speaking countries of the world, the average person had never encountered graphology and many did not even know what the word signified – and this same lack of awareness applied to most students I met while studying Experimental Psychology at Sussex University.
The philosophy books I wrote were inspired by my desire to reach a deeper understanding of existentialism, in order to increase my understanding of human nature and the significance of our existence on this planet.
This is because most psychological dysfunction and inner conflict arises from deep-rooted anxieties connected with our failure to confront, and come to terms with, fundamental issues which existentialism discusses in depth, such as how to find meaning in a life which culminates in permanent extinction and how to deal with the anxiety and dread connected with this fact.
Existentialism teaches us that we, and no one else, are entirely responsible for the choices and commitments we make, which determine the value we find in life, and that being true to ourselves (living authentically) requires increasing our awareness of the various possibilities that are available to us in our particular life situation in order to make choices that are most in harmony with our deepest inner needs, rather than choices that are influenced by what others expect from us.
My lastest two publications lie within the field of Complimentary Medicine.
