I am a trained social worker, and therefore have counselling skills and a good understanding of human behaviour, psycho social and community dynamics. I am currently registered with the South African Council for Social Services Professionals. I have worked most of my career in Local Government (fourteen years) as a community development manager and advisor. I have a Masters degree in Social Work as well as a Masters in Business Administration. I have extensive experience working in and closely with the Non Governmental Sector for 15 years. I am also a trained teacher of the Happiness programme of the Artofliving Foundation, which delivers stress relief and humanitarian work in 155 countries. I teach community stress relief programmes and well as paid stress relief programmes.
