As Einstein said, “None of my theories came through thinking about them!” 

My focus is helping clients go beyond their stuck mode of thinking and feeling to new levels of conscious awareness and emotional freedom. 

For more than thirty years I have practiced, researched and taught the most powerful tools available for the transformation of my client’s lives. Thereby, helping them reach new levels of personal and mental freedom that previously were either unavailable or were unimagined.

My psychological trainings and degrees involve the all the current forms of transformation including, Therapy, Counseling, Coaching and Spiritual Direction. Depending on a client’s specific issues, each of these modalities are available to improve a client’s life.

Here is a brief description of their differences and applications…

Therapy: Therapy is a process that uses techniques to help clients go below their Ego’s level of consciousness. Thereby, unlocking the blocks to their negative, unconscious memories and issues that have been infringing on their mental and emotional well-being throughout their lives.

Counselling: Counselling, involves helping clients explore different alternatives to their old beliefs and behaviors that is keeping them stuck and blocked from having the life of their dreams. However, it doesn’t normally deal with the unconscious blocks that Therapy is used for.

Coaching: Coaching is helping clients find their true purpose and destiny. The focus is on how to find, or get ahead in your career, upgrade your thinking and working behaviors’, and enjoy the direction your life is taking you.

Spiritual Direction: Spiritual Direction is the journey of the Soul, looking for guidance from beyond the Ego to the greater and deeper wisdom that lies within. This can be accomplished through understanding of dreams, and other esoteric practices that help one embrace the greater wisdom of the Soul and the Divine essence that lies within all of us.

Due to the above trainings I bring a broad dimension of skills to each of my client’s issues. Normally, and depending on my schedule I do a free check in session prior to taking on a new client. To make an appointment Please call… 250 390 1066, or send an email with your contact numbers to

Words Of Healing from our Clients

Dr. Phil Winkelmans helped transform my life. He used a variety of techniques to work through my issues on a both a conscious and subconscious level. He heard and understood my current challenges then often took me back to my childhood to help me recognize and work on the root of the issue. He respected my faith and incorporated spiritual psychology into many of our sessions.

I appreciated his always-enlightening perspective and diverse spiritual training. It adds another dimension that I haven’t experienced with other therapists. Through lots of laughter and a few tears, Dr. Phil has helped me overcome fears and dare to live courageously. Because of him, I have learned to break generational patterns and be the person I want to be. I would highly recommend Dr. Phil Winkelmans for psychological therapy. Dr. Phil’s intellect, compassion, and humor are a wonderful light on whatever path you’re journeying.

- Sincerely, Jamie Moore, 8 December 2019

To Dr. Philip Winkelmans,

I owe you endless gratitude for showing me the road to take in order to become the best person I can be. Your methods helped me to transform from an extremely damaged and broken individual, into a well-healed human being both mentally and physically.

You gave my life a new focus when I didn’t know how much | needed it. I couldn’t have succeeded in becoming the person I am today without you. Thank you so much Dr. Philip Winkelmans.

Why Intuitive Life Coaching?

Throughout my life I have continued to be impressed by the non-rational intelligence of the right brain. This is the Intuitive realm of consciousness that is responsible for all of the world’s great discoveries. We now know that creativity comes through a process of the imagination, revelation and inspiration, which are not part of the logical left brain’s way of thinking.

Where do you think our education system’s focus has been for the last hundred years…the Left Brain or the Right Brain? Yes the Left Brain…However, who wins the Noble Prizes…who are the geniuses in our society…those who access just their Left Brain, or those who access both their Right and Left Brain?

As Einstein said, “None of my theories came through thinking about them” and he also said, “Imagination is more powerful than thinking.”

Today we honor and are impressed by the Intuitive Thinkers in our society. And it seems these are the people who rise to the top of their various professions. (See side bar)

At Self Directional Institute we have focused on helping people develop and access skills that take them beyond their rational Left Brain mode of thinking. Our coaches undergo extensive training in Right Brain technologies so they can help their clients access the core of their particular issues.

The word Psychology comes from the Greek word ‘Psyche’ meaning ‘Soul,’ and ‘Logos,’ which relates to thought and reason. Therefore the original intention of Psychology was meant to be… the study of the Soul. However, if you surveyed most schools of Psychology today, would you say they usually focused on the Ego or the Soul? Yes, in spite of all the gains we have made in psychology over the last century, we are still missing the boat by not accessing the unlimited powers of the Soul.

A simple example of what a difference this can make was illustrated by Scott Peck a famous Psychiatrist of the last century who wrote a book called Denial Of The Soul.
In it he describes how often he was amazed at the answers his clients gave him when he asked whether or not their choices were coming from their Ego or their Soul. Often when a client was making a decision, which he felt wasn’t in their best interest; he’d ask, “What would your soul say?” And then to his surprise they would come up with an answer that was much more beneficial to their wellbeing.

For over thirty years we at Self Directional Institute have been developing state of the art personnel development tools that you can use to overcome your own individual blocks for fulfilling your true destiny and purpose.

Our Intuitive Life Coaches help you learn our Intuitive based skills that let you go beyond ego awareness and tap into the essence of your soul, which is the home of your true wisdom, creativity and passion.
