Jackie LyonsLogotherapy has helped me break free from old patterns of thoughts and behaviours. It has also given me new ways to answer for my own life by detecting the meaning of the moment and assuming my responsibility for living a meaningful authentic life.

My logotherapy training has given me both "the tools for change" and the possibility to develop new opportunities for finding my own personal meaning in my daily healing profession and striving to achieve my highest potential.

I intend to continue to learn and apply logotherapy techniques in my clinical practice, teaching and supervision of interns. I will also continue to take great pride in expanding Logotherapy throughout South Africa and possibly in Australia.

Meaningful quotes

Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
