self-help recovery books


I've written four recovery books covering all aspects of mental health – with one vital aspect in common: they show not how to survive but how to THRIVE from and because of mental health problems.

For 30 years I've been a writer for national newspapers and magazines around the world, including for The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Psychologies, GQ, Esquire, Marie Claire, Ottawa Citizen and The Australian

I've also written many of the articles you see on the websites of renowned international recovery & rehab centres.

"The gift of healing is a privilege and you have acquired it over many years so that others can benefit from your wisdom transference."

Mark, London, UK.

"You have certainly helped me in the past year. I’m sure many more will benefit from your wisdom, care and nurturing to get them through difficult times."

Tanya, England.

"You have a great ear for this. So pleased you are using the term wellbeing as mental health doesn't really equate to what we are dealing with here."
