Lucidity is the next step in psychological coaching. Using the LQ Test®, we can make an objective picture of a person’s real contentment, their psychological clarity, their capacity for self-reflection and their psychological maturity. Lucidity is objectively measurable, logical, rational and accessible for everyone, and therefore it is possible for us as practitioners to take stock in a neutral way without any judgement.

In addition, Lucidity gives us access to tools that enable people to take responsibility for their own contentment and wellbeing. Quick step-by-step success and detectable, measurable improvement provides encouragement and ever-increasing self-confidence. This four-weekend intensive training course is open only to coaches or therapists who have already completed levels 1-4. The reason for this is clear. In order to work with people the lucid way you can only go as far as you have gone yourself. As Mahatma Ghandi wrote: “We must become the change we want to see in the world.”

During this training course, you will learn more about the background of Lucidity, its methods and applications. You will see how the various LQ tests can be used as tools before a series of sessions to give direction and afterwards to assess outcomes. In addition, you will have the opportunity to practise conveying the concepts behind Lucidity with clarity, choosing from and using a wide array of exercises, and answering questions with confidence.

Certification is offered on completion by the practitioner of a case study in the months following the taught section of the course.


Dirk de Sousa, psychological counsellor, coach and author

As an original voice in modern psychology, the bestselling author unlocks personal insight and self-knowledge, guiding you in the search for an end to psychological suffering, for emotional resilience and contentment in all spheres of life. For decades, de Sousa has worked successfully as therapist, coach and consultant, numbering among his clients many well-known names in politics, the media and international business. He has also guided athletes and coaches at both national, international and Olympic level, and provided counselling to couples and to parents of children in crisis. In his first book, The Self Beyond Myself, de Sousa argued that the first step to contentment is to gain real insight into our own inner self with the right form of self-reflection. The capacity for this insight, which also includes the ability to recognize what we encounter within, enables us to fully understand ourselves and then to realize our full potential.


He terms this capacity, ‘Lucidity’.  In his most recent work, de Sousa breaks down Lucidity into four qualities – contentment, mental clarity, self-reflection and mental maturity – and shows how it can be objectively measured and improved, leading to a greater degree of mental freedom, inner unity, and real and enduring contentment.

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes
also a matter of opportunity.

– Hippocrates
