Free Book - Introduction to Voice Dialogue and  Self Awareness
Voice Dialogue may or may not suit you. There is no better way of creating a wonderful sense of self-awareness, an understanding of "So this is who I really am".  But are you ready for this level of understanding? Because with it comes a load of  self-empowerment and the knowledge that you have inside you an aware grown-up system that provides you with the energy and the understanding to run your own life and fix your own problems. Ready? Then you are ready for Voice Dialogue.



This website was the original 1996 site that started the Voice Dialogue and Growing Awareness Series  - it is still a great site and there are still some pages that are found only on this site.

However, our Voice Dialogue flagship site is now
www.voice-dialogue-inner-self-awareness.com . Some of the pages are the same as on this site but the indexing of content and navigation is better there. You will find many new and updated pages there as well.

Many new postings will not appear on this website but will be found on our new Voice Dialogue website


This grand old Voice Dialogue website was the first one I ever built  and with over 51,000 hits it has been well received but recently a number of pages have disappeared and the layout and navigation is getting a bit ragged as well.  I am moving all the pages from here over to the new 2014 website.

Some pages have not been moved so it is still worth exploring this site but pages here that have been moved carry a header and link to the same page (updated) on my new flagship Voice Dialogue flagship website  ....

My websites - each one dealing with a different topic

My Flagship site

.This site explains voice dialogue and self awareness using recognised terms and descriptions. It is dedicated to Dr Hal Stone and and Dr Sidra Stone who developed this powerful process and their continuing work on the Psychology of the inner Selves.

Emotional Age Colored Wheel - an Amazing new Voice Dialogue  tool - (free download) Emotional Age Gauge


Designed to work in conjunction with Voice Dialogue by grouping all your Inner selves according to their continually changing emotional ages. My long term voice dialogue clients are telling me "Now I finally understand what is going on with my  Inner Selves!". More important they are now making more powerful changes sooner and more effectively.

My first website now in its 18th year
Most pages from this original site are being transferred to the new Flagship site (above) but there are still many pages well worth while reading. More information about voice dialogue - a powerful tool for growing self-awareness, self empowerment, self-healing and the Key to Balancing your Life.

A Self Awareness site to help Men and Women overcome the toxic influence of their Inner Patriarch and Inner Matriarch
Self awareness and self empowerment can work differently for women and men. At the heart of these differences are two extremely dangerous inner selves - the Inner Matriarch and the Inner Patriarch. They fight each other constantly and they encourage fights between men and women. The only thing they have in common is that they are both dedicated to keeping all men and all women out of loving, successful grown-up relationships at home, at work or anywhere else. We all have an Inner Patriarch and an Inner Matriarch inside us but there is much we can do to reduce their toxic influence.

Healing a Broken or damaged relationship

About broken relationships and what it takes to heal them.
