The Book of Confidence

Meditations for Strength and Inspiration

By Sue Patton Thoele

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A series of 114 meditations that enable women to master the art of emotional self-care through self-acceptance.

A self-discovery guide that teaches women to banish guilt and find emotional sustenance is difficult times. In short it is a book that focusses on self-esteem, self-acceptance, and facing the world proudly and with courage.

Each of the ten sections have ten to fifteen meditations. Those ten points of focus are: weaving a safety net; befriending fear; becoming the parent we deserve; embracing no-fault living; finding freedom through honest feeling; accepting what is; changing what can be changed; inviting abundance; growing through loss; trusting the feminine within.

This is an inspirational pick-me-up for women, meant to read over and over again throughout the course of a year.

Eve Bingham
Authors:
Eve Bingham

Handwriting analysis, or graphology, is the science involved in producing a personality profile of the writer by examining the characteristics, traits and strokes of an individual's handwriting. It seems impossible, but a trained graphologist can gather an astonishing amount of information about the writer just from analysing their handwriting. Besides creating a complete personality profile, many other things are revealed in your handwriting, such as health issues, morality, past experiences, hidden talents, mental problems - to name just a few.The Orion Plain & Simple title explains what handwriting analysis is and why it works. The author gives a brief history of the art then delves into every aspect of writing, including:· The way the writing moves across the page· The meaning of the pen, pencil, and ink chosen· The slope of the script and the amount of space between words· The size and shape of the individual letters and signatures· The meaning of writing styles in headed paper, logos, and shop signs

Why Self-Esteem is a Myth

Harry Barry
Authors:
Harry Barry

In an age where self-esteem is seen as essential to mental health, we are seeing unprecedented rises in mental health difficulties from depression anxiety, eating disorders and many others. Is there not a dichotomy at play here? Is Self - Esteem (ie 'I live for my rating') a reality at all or simply a myth we are all buying into. In this book bestselling author Harry Barry challenges the conventional wisdom and explores why the terms self-acceptance, self-respect and self-actualization are more helpful in developing positive mental health. In his trademark style he also provides practical examples of what we should all be doing instead to build confidence and reach our full potential.Part 1: The myth of self-esteemPart 2: Debunking the myth of 'low self-esteem'Part 3: Debunking the myth of 'high self-esteem'Part 4: Debunking the myth 'others can dictate my self-esteem'

Authors:
Alexandra Sacks, Catherine Birndorf

Your guide to the emotions of pregnancy and early motherhood, from top reproductive psychiatrists Dr Sacs and Dr Bindorf.With a combined thirty years of counseling new and expectant mothers, Dr Sacks and Dr Birndorf have seen firsthand how the pressure to be perfect, and perfectly happy, leaves women feeling confused and even ashamed of the emotions that can bubble up during pregnancy. Now, in What No One Tells You, the two psychiatrists show why it's natural for 'matrescence'`- the birth of a mother - to be as stressful and transformative a period as adolescence.From the swirl of trepidation and joy of seeing that plus sign, to the complexities of bonding with a tiny and mighty newborn human, Drs. Sacks and Birndorf provide a roadmap for mothers-to-be, detailing the emotions (both positive and negative) that can develop, explaining the psychological backstory as to why, and offering women a practical guide for managing the ups and downs of this exciting, exhausting time.After years of hearing their patients say, 'But how come no one told me?' Drs. Birndorf and Sacks are ready to share their secrets with the world.

Authentic Gravitas

Rebecca Newton
Authors:
Rebecca Newton

Having a powerful, meaningful impact on others is not about being the most dominant person in the room; it's about being intentional, curious, and courageous.Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them. Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd - connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference.Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by: * Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact * Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles * Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel - as you engage in courageous behaviours, confidence naturally buildsAuthentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between - to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.

Gaslighting.What it is, how you can spot it - and how you can break freeHe's the charmer - the witty, confident, but overly controlling date. She's the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He's the neighbour who swears you've been putting your rubbish into his bins, or the politician who can never admit to a mistake. Gaslighters are master controllers and manipulators, often challenging your very sense of reality. Whether it's a spouse, parent, co-worker, or friend, gaslighters distort the truth - by lying, withholding, triangulation, and more - making their victims question their own reality and sanity. Dr Stephanie Sarkis delves into this hidden manipulation technique, covering gaslighting in every life scenario, sharing: · Why gaslighters seem so 'normal' at first · Warning signs and examples · Gaslighter 'red flags' on a first date · Practical strategies for coping · How to co-parent with a gaslighter · How to protect yourself from a gaslighter at work · How to walk away and rebuild your life With clear-eyed wisdom and empathy, Dr Sarkis not only helps you determine if you are being victimized by a gaslighter - she gives you the tools to break free and heal.
