I’ve recently given birth–to a book, entitled “Thinking Therapy — No to Maybe”!
Some of you have noticed I’ve been writing on the blog less, and posting less. There is good reason. I’ve been spending every spare moment for the last 3 months writing a book which is now available!! Much agony, tea and hours of endless tapping have gone into getting this book ready for the world.
I’m so excited to share this book with the world. I’m nervous and scared and excited and thrilled and anxious—all in one! It is the book that I have wanted to give to people when they sidle up to me in public somewhere to confide:
“I think therapy could be really helpful, but I don’t think I could ever really go because…”
“I have someone I deeply care about in my life who is struggling hard and they won’t go for help. I don’t know what to do! They need help I can’t give them–but I don’t know how to get them to consider going to counselling.”
I’ve listened carefully to my clients for years. They have told me of the topics they have had to work through before they could make an informed choice about counselling. Some of them are frustrated that it took them years to be able to make the appointment that allow let them to:
- figure out those thought patterns and painful feelings that keep them stuck in depression
- develop coping strategies to the anxiety that keeps them living small, away from their dreams and hopes
- create a vibrant relationship with their spouse, rather than live with the gradual ebbing of the marriage to eventual nothingness
- fix the relationship with their mother/son/best friend
- deal with the aching loneliness they feel when they struggle to like themselves and find meaningful connection with others
I’m a rather shy and very polite Canadian, and so it’s hard for me to ask something of my readers, but I believe in this book.
I wrote Thinking Therapy — No to Maybe to help those that have an inkling for more, but just won’t give themselves permission to explore therapy as a way to pursue it.
I’m asking you to consider purchasing Thinking Therapy — From No to Maybe for your own interest. Maybe you’ve always wanted to know more about counselling, or even read of what I’ve learned over the years. I’d be ever so grateful if you would leave a comment on Amazon.ca or Kobo when you’ve read it.
This is agonizing for me to request. I hate to impose. But please, purchase it for a friend if you think they might benefit from it.
I’d like to generate a bit of a buzz about it so that people who might benefit from it will find out about it. There aren’t a lot of ways that people can learn about the nuts and bolts of a therapy session. It’s time to demystify the process and remove the stigma.
This is the book to read if you want to know about therapy works–what you can do and say at a first session to ensure it is successful for you. If you share Thinking Therapy — From No to Maybe on social media or tell your friends about it, we can get the word out. Tweet about it, Instagram, and facebook: #ThinkTherapy It’s awkward for me to ask, but I’d be ever so grateful.
Let’s end the stigma of asking for help. Let’s work together to make this a world where it just gets a little easier for people can reach out to the appropriate resources to get the support they need.
This is me, inviting you to partner with me as together we do what we can in all sorts of ways to make the world a better place. I know there are lots of ways to help others. This is mine, and if you can do something to help me help others, I’d be much obliged.
