I'm Gideon, the creator of TheRelationshipGuy.com, a website giving healthy relationship advice about love and life.

Before diving into psychological studies, I studied Theology (religious studies) for six years at Stellenbosch University, and worked as a pastor for 15 years. 

After moving to New Zealand, I later on trained and qualified as a hypnotherapist (DipMSHT) in 2012, and a professional counsellor (DipProfCouns) in 2013.

I'm currently also furthering my graduate Psychology studies at Massey University (Auckland).

However, I work as a relationship and dating blogger most of the time nowadays.

Most importantly, my wife and I have been happily married for over fifteen years and are parents of two kids.
