Recommended Reading

These are some of the books that have helped me on my journey, and are ones that I personally recommend.  They helped move me from a place of powerlessness, believing that I was a helpless victim of circumstance, to the understanding that I truly could make a difference in my own life!  They are (pretty much in the order I read them, beginning with the gift of the first one back in 1987 - thank you so much, Julie!) as follows:

Recommended Websites

Again, these first two are my own personal recommendations - Ger and Moira were instrumental in helping me when I was at my lowest, a time when I was signed off work suffering from extreme stress and depression.  Without the help of their workshops, I doubt that I would be here now - I'll never forget Ger working with me at my very first workshop and telling everyone there:  "This is why people have heart attacks, this is why people have strokes - they keep all these feelings inside".  Thank you so much, Ger, and Moira, for all your help in my journey of personal transformation!

Both Ger and Moira are available internationally for workshops.
