Colin & Deanna Garnett
Colin & Deanna Garnett combined two contrasting worlds and developed a spiritual, psychological and relationally balanced home environment for themselves, their two children, and for countless families from various countries around the world.
Deanna comes from a stable family background in South Africa, offering an academic portfolio of BA LLB degrees (English & Law majors) and certified Proofreading & Copyediting. An impeccable work record includes general finance and banking administration, and 16 years’ small business co-ownership and directorship involving financial management, employee engagement and management, team development, policies and procedures development, and client service delivery.
In her Life Mentor UK role, alongside excellence in administrational attention to detail, communication and time management, her strongest point is in the area of parenting and teaching young children how to study.
Colin, from the UK, comes from a post-traumatic stress related history of substance abuse, family breakdown and relationship chaos. For three decades since then, he has dedicated his life to helping vulnerable people and their families, gaining international recognition and astonishing results.
Colin’s long-standing mentor since 1995, Rev. Vic Jackopson (M.B.E.), said of Colin, “In Colin we see one of those rare breeds of men who have managed to turn their own personal challenges in life to the greater benefit of everyone he works with. He has a natural insight into the human condition, enhanced by a sound clinical mind”.
Colin & Deanna have founded and developed mental health care homes in South Africa for more than two decades. They have positively influenced the lives of street people, military regimes, politicians and everyone in between, across Africa, USA, Europe and UK.
What we offer: Life Mentor UK offers you the founding influences behind ‘Bethesda’, our Trademark registered programme for mental healthcare issues, family empowerment, relationship enrichment and character development.
Bethesda (formerly in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa), was founded and directed by Colin and Deanna from 2005 to 2021. Everything we did was born from foundations of accountability, transparency, integrity and experiences gained in almost 10 years of counselling and coaching in private clinics of Britain and Europe.
Bethesda became internationally sought after by individuals and families in the grip of addictions, eating disorders and behavioural disorders, because of our inclusion of hurting family members and recognition of their needs.
At Life Mentor UK, we therefore offer 25 years of private sector standards of One to One Mentoring, Relationship Guidance, Conflict Management, Addiction Awareness, Parenting Styles Assessment, Workplace Conflict Resolution, Biblical Counselling and Home Visits.
Because we place an immense value on personal empowerment through spiritual, psychological and emotional intelligence, our fees enable access to your choice of the following Online Diploma Courses: Addiction Psychology, Child Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, Eating Disorders, Grief, Loss & Bereavement, and Cognitive Behaviour.
Our personalised packages offer 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and/or 9 months, with extensions of coaching on request for young couples, single parents, new parents, chemically dependent individuals, and people in need of personalized recovery foundations.
Who we work with: Colin & Deanna Garnett welcome you to Life Mentor UK, bringing mentoring with a difference to parents and loved ones who recognize the importance of investing into the spiritual, psychological and relational wellbeing within their families.
After almost three decades of listening to and working with clean living, successful parents in trauma and confusion from finding themselves with an addicted child, our aim is to identify and address this vast array of beliefs, attitudes and behaviours found in the culture of addiction, which are also being found in the most successful first world families.
More and more seemingly stable parents and young couples from non-abusive stable backgrounds are finding their homes being highjacked because of innocent vulnerabilities within parenting styles that have never been examined, challenged or changed to stabilize children for the scary world awaiting them.
Life Mentor UK offers decades of proven influence into these leading homes, in a quiet and confidential manner, to further equip progenies for the new world order in front of them in which, what used to be considered normal, is now considered out of date.
Life Mentor UK also offers a Therapeutic Boot Camp as an intervention and sabotage option for where a growing problem with substances might already be active or even suspected.
