Want to know about me?
Whenever I pick up a new book or search a new
web site, I always want
to know something about the author and their expertise,
experience and understanding of their subject too.
So let me introduce myself.
I'm Helen Williams, the editor of this website and I was born
in clean, green New Zealand, however I have spent some years now living and working in Dubai, United Arab Emirates where I own and run a very busy personal Development training centre, LifeWorks Dubai
, along with my eldest daughter.
I am a parent counselor and family educator.
My life's robust experiences created a strong interest in relationships
and human development, and in understanding the psychology of grief and loss.
This led to studies in Transactional Analysis, Progressive Counseling and Gestalt Therapy.
Throughout my adult life I have worked almost continuously as a counselor and parent educator,
renewing my commitment through regular participation in supervision and learning.
Living for some years in
a meditation and retreat center, where I worked as a counselor and a
teacher of yoga and meditation has also had an impact on my way of being.
My greatest life's work has been as a mother - parenting, raising, loving,
enjoying and educating my four, now grown children.
I am immensely proud of
them as people and see each one as my finest advertisement for
success in the field of parenting.
Discovering the depth and breadth of motherhood and being a parent still
constitutes one of life's greatest joys for me.
Nowadays I am also a proud grandmother to several superb grandchildren, beautiful boys and girls.
Becoming a grandmother has been filled with wonderful joy, surprises and new loves. It has also been the greatest discovery about growing older.
Since childhood, books have always been my greatest delight, and study and education have been one of
the hallmarks of my life. Nowadays, writing has become another great passion.
Studying Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology and
History has equipped me for embracing cultural diversity through
my experiences as a regular traveler.
I love to travel and explore, and
have been blessed to be able to live and work abroad in some amazing
countries such as Sri Lanka and United Arab Emirates.
While continuing with my daily life as LifeWorks Director, I also get to travel regularly, and edit and write for my websites. I share this passion with my
eldest daughter, who is the editor of
Baby Books Guide.com
This is a site for parents by parents, where you will find recommended books for your baby and about your baby as well as many other resources needed in the first three years.
The wonderful encouragement, support and teaching of a company that makes great
not only possible but immensely enjoyable too is Site

understand why this is so.
Building this site has been a creative journey for me. With Site Build It's reliable support and amazing learning tools, I have become passionate about building a website business that makes it possible for me to not only work from home but also in other countries when I am traveling.
