Anne's book...


A Survivor's Guide to the Journey of Life

Have you ever wondered why you react in certain ways in some situations and not in others? Or why others react to you in surprising ways? Relating to others is not a game of chance - it is very often an unconscious, conditioned response that we have learned as a child.

This book is about the journey of the inner child and how that child influences our behaviour today. Using  the metaphor of a ferry crossing, each section of the book corresponds to a section of the journey. From hopeful beginnings, through turbulent waters to the final satisfaction of arriving at your destination, this book will give you the chance to find out about yourself by exploring your reactions and perceptions, which will enable you to change your life for the better. It will offer plenty of guidance to today's parents, too, on the best way to bring up children.

Using Emotional Therapy techniques, the author shows how we can discover inner peace and harmony by learning to respond to situations, rather than reacting to them. She will also show you how to cope with the ups and downs of life, particularly the difficult times that can so easily unsettle us and throw us off course. However, learning about your inner child, the child you once were, means that when the next storm descends you can find yourself a safe haven. 

Signed copies are available for £17.99, plus postage and packing direct from the author.  This book is no longer available through Amazon or similar web sites.
