About your intrepid leader for this course:  I'm a South African trained clinical psychologist, and author of 3 books (one featured in O).  I've been fortunate enough to  have had my views expressed in many magazines (everything from Reader's Digest to Men's Health), TV and radio, or as a professional speaker and international workshop presenter.  I have been an invitee onto the peer panel for the South African Journal of Psychology as well as the  Advisory boards of Shape magazine and the South African Journal for Natural Medicine and SANEP (South African Nutrition Expert Panel) as their consulting psychologist, and Metropolitan Health as a health partner.  I'm also a total research junkie.  Ever since I discovered medical and psychological journals, I’ve been nibble-noshing a steady diet of them.  I like to read em, digest em and spit em out in new and interesting ways.

What participants have said about my style.... 

"It was a very positive and rich experience. As a psychologist Cari’s education methods foster a learning that feels like self discovery. I loved the creative homework and activities. The results – an improved quality of life."

—Julie Robinson - Placerville, CA

"I would never have uncovered these sabotage beliefs .I learned so much about my negative attacking traits and how to stop them!"

—Liz Calvert- Amsterdam

"Your coaching taught me (actually you showed me) how to embrace my imperfect being and how to move more freely and with greater self-respect, in this oftentimes very harsh world."

—Bee - New York, NY

A number of attendees mentioned they would like her presentation to have been longer as she has such a different perspective on things.  They felt it was “well researched,” ‘relaxed and practical,” “thought-provoking” and “good advice for the future.”

— FitPregnancy Magazine South Africa
