My name is Glynis Klein. I am passionate about promoting individual growth through the life cycle stages and re-discovering your authentic, creative self and vocational purpose.
Frederick Buecher defines Vocation as the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need. “Vocation does not mean a goal that I pursue. It means a calling that I hear. I must listen for the truths and values at the heart of my own identity, not the standards by which I must live – but the standard by which I cannot help but live if I am living my own life.” (Parker J. Palmer)
As an introverted lark, I relish solitude and the quiet of early mornings because quiet time allows me time for self-reflection, journaling and re-fuelling. Silent introspection keeps me grounded and equipped to thrive in a dynamic society.
I am currently studying as a returning adult student to complete a Bachelor of Applied Social Science degree at the South African College of Applied Psychology. The degree has equipped me with a psychology and counselling foundation to facilitate individual growth in others.
As a fledgeling writer, I aspire to integrate psychological literacy with creative writing to develop psycho-educational resources for individual growth towards self-actualisation.
