Well, I have had a busy few days updating my profile on www.Goodreads.com, www.facebook.com/EmotionalHealthForEmotionalWealth.co.uk, Linked In, and have still to do Google + and Twitter! I have also got my website designers to update my website so take a look at the store page in a couple of days – it should show 23 books for sale by Christmas!
Updating my biography has taken the longest and I am publishing the updated version here too just in case you want to know more about me!
I have been motivated by authors like Louise Hay, Susan Jeffers, Susan Forward, Rhonda Byrne, and Paul McKenna. Now it is my chance to inspire positive change in other people. I turned to books to learn about how to heal and create a happier life. As a survivor of incest, rape, domestic violence and the miscarriage of my baby, I went against my family norm and undertook counselling to sort out my feelings. I turned my life around and hope that you will be able to gain some insight and support from my self-help e-books.
After a career in admin I gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management in my thirties. I then re-trained because I felt that there had to be more to life than pushing paper around!
I was a Psychotherapist in private practice from 1987 until 2009. I was born in New Hampshire, U.S.A. and because of my English Mother, I grew up in Lydney, Gloucestershire, England. I returned to this area and live with the tranquillity of the beautiful Forest of Dean.
Previously, I had a successful counselling practice in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England for 17 years. My professional education comes mainly from the U.S.A. where I was awarded a degree in Business Management and went on to study for a master’s degree in community psychology. My Father died and I returned to England with my Mother.
I was also a Divorce Mediator for five years with the Family Mediators Association and a Professional Practice Consultant for the U.K. College of Family Mediation. I bring that broad range of experience to my books “Emotional Health for Emotional Wealth” and “Pre-Marital MOT: A Relationship Inspection”. See the About Me page of my website: www.EmotionalHealthForEmotionalWealth.co.uk for more information about my training and experience. Both of these books are currently available in paperback from my website or via the book stores. Both are Kindle e-books, available on my website also, and are e-pub available for other e-book readers via the major retailer’s on-line book stores in the U.K. and the U.S.A.
My latest book “Hugs & Emotional Wealth Change the World” is about how people can be kinder to each other using hugs and take personal responsibility for their quality of emotional wealth by understanding themselves better. Thus the individual’s efforts will change the world as more people take care of themselves and thus others and the world in general. Please do take a look at this book for all our sakes and especially for those of your children and grandchildren.
