Actress and registered psychometrist Leandie du Randt’s recently released debut book, Comfortable in Your Own Skin, could well become your daughter’s new best friend.

Why your daughter should read it

Comfortable in Your Own Skin is aimed at helping teenage girls think for themselves, become more self-confident and learn life lessons that are applicable to their daily lives. Although there’s a strong spiritual message, Leandie doesn’t preach and makes it clear the book is for everyone, no matter their beliefs.

How does it work?

The book is presented as a three-week course with practical exercises at the end of each day. The content of the book covers issues teenage girls are confronted with on a daily basis, such as drugs and alcohol abuse, peer pressure, eating disorders, body image and deeper issues concerning thoughts, self-confidence and spiritual wellbeing.

More about Leandie

Leandie isn’t only a successful actress, model and voice artist, she’s also a qualified pychometrist with an honours in industrial psychology.

She aims to help young girls by using her own experiences so they can develop self-confidence and reach their full potential.

She’s planning to open a career centre with her sister-in-law later this year where they’ll help young people with career choices. “We want to put a different spin on the usual aptitudes tests by working out a career and life path for teenagers they can be passionate about,” Leandie says.
