I studied in South Africa at the University of Stellenbosch where I completed a BA degree in Psychology and an honors degree in Counselling Psychology (1991).
In 2012 I graduated from the Hahnemann Institute for Heilkunst and Homeopathy ( DHHP) as a Practitioner of Medical Heilkunst and Sequential Homeopathy in Ontario, Canada
After studying psychology I found that I was still looking for a deeper understanding of life and the children I worked with. I left South Africa in 2000 and moved to the Middle East where I have been working and living ever since. In 2005 I started studying Heilkunst and personally experienced the benefits of the treatment for myself and my three children and was amazed at the level of health and wholeness we attained.
I have been practicing behavioral therapy for the past 30 years and specialize in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (AD/HD), Pervasive Developmental Disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), including all other childhood conditions.
As a homeopath, I have a holistic approach that does not focus on the diagnosis of conditions, but rather on the underlying cause. The inappropriate behavior patterns and mental/emotional symptoms are often triggered by the energetic relationships between children and parents/teachers, as well as other environmental factors.
Over the years I came to realize that behavior therapy on its own is limited, though it can alleviate these behavior symptoms, it does not address the underlying cause. I recognized that the inappropriate behavior, lack of language and social skills, anxiety, and anger were merely symptoms of the underlying disease or energetic disturbance and I needed to go deeper. In Heilkunst I found a safe, comprehensive, and holistic system of medicine that offers a permanent cure.
Studying and practicing Heilkunst is an important part of my life both at home and at work. It has given me real answers and hopes where before there were questions and uncertainty. The increasing number of children who suffer from health, behavioral, developmental, and communication disorders motivated me to look further.
Now I am excited and grateful for the use of this wonderful tool to deal with the energetic disturbances.
The day I met Mariette Carstens of Inner Connection Consulting, I knew that I would forever have at my disposal a holistic, caring and no-nonsense approach to living my best life. Mariette's one-to-one sessions took me by surprise: finally, a therapist was willing to hold me to account for my own creations and perceptions of "reality". Yes, she listened and empathised with my heartache/anxiety/neuroses, and I had certainly catalogued many of those for myself, but then the hard work began: planning, strategizing, empowering. If you want to change your life, accelerate your success and invest in your pathway to living a peaceful life, contact Mariette today!
