Worked as translator for my Dutch magazines and news papers every month, as well as a piano tuner in this little town or Rye, East Sussex. Passed 3 month course, Women in Management,at Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology, and got Certificate for all modules taken.

      Passed my Heavy Goods Vehicle driving test in 1983, and drove 32 tonners with goods from England to Sicily and back. I did this for about seven years, in order to pay for my studies. In 1982 started part-time study Counseling at Hastings College of Arts and Technology, and at the College of Psychotherapy and Graduated Counseling and Relationship Counseling Rugby, GB, in 1987. Graduated from Hastings College in 1985.

      On 11 September 2004, my elder son, Matt, died very suddenly. This put my whole life on hold for a very long time. It is only now, the last three months, that I feel I that am thawing from this experience and want to start working and attending seminars, conferences and reunions again.
