I write books to help people live better lives
Freddie van Rensburg
I was born, bred and educated in Johannesburg. I did a BA Social Sciences, majoring in Psychology and Sociology, at the then Rand Afrikaans University (now University of Johannesburg) and followed that up with an Honours in Sociology, specialising in Family Sociology, Group Dynamics and Industrial Sociology. I did my counselling qualification through UNISA.
My special interests are addiction and addictive behaviour in all its forms and manifestations (from alcohol and drugs to food, sex, love and whatever form addiction can take), self-esteem realisation, past and present trauma, anger management, stress and anxiety. I have a special affinity for twelve step coaching and support to loved ones of addicts.
I strongly believe that the power of talking is under-appreciated and not significantly utilised. All of us go through challenging and difficult times in our lives, but we can grow beyond and because of that. By talking to the right person and accepting their guidance and support, you can develop yourself into the best YOU that you want to be.

Written for non-addicts
Life Anon is written for non-addicts to help you in responding to life appropriately instead of reacting in ways that hurt you or others. It is filled with great examples to enable you to grasp the concepts quickly and to make your journey more enjoyable.
I talk to friends and others whose spirituality I respect or find interesting. We discuss their concept of spirituality, where it is derived from, the path they took to arrive at it as well as what they do to maintain it.
