Uncoupling

How to survive and thrive after breakup and divorce

By Sara Davison

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

Current wisdom is that a divorce coach is the person you call at the same time as you instruct a lawyer: you need someone impartial at your elbow to see you through the emotional and practical implications of the break up of a serious relationship. Sara Davison is considered to be the UK's premier divorce coach and Uncoupling is her unique companion to the challenging process of separation and divorce.

With a fresh, sympathetic and reassuring approach, Uncoupling provides tried-and-tested advice that will help anyone going through a break-up. It is the book that Sara looked for - and couldn't find - when going through the process herself, so she is only too well aware how few places people feel they can turn to for compassionate and practical advice.

Uncoupling combines Sara's extensive training in life-coaching techniques, her cutting-edge work with those who are themselves 'uncoupling', and her own personal experience. Her advice will show you how to navigate the pitfalls and will make the process easier. It is all about being in emotional control and Uncoupling will help you build your personal strength so that you can deal with the rollercoaster of emotions more effectively, enabling you to move forwards. It is all about putting you back in control.

Caleb and Kit

Beth Vrabel
Authors:
Beth Vrabel

Twelve-year-old Caleb is shorter, frailer, and more protected than most kids his age. That's because he has cystic fibrosis, a diagnosis meaning lungs that fill with mucus and a shortened lifespan. Caleb tries not to let his disorder define him, but it can be hard with an overprotective mom and a perfect big brother. Then Caleb meets Kit-a vibrant, independent, and free girl-and his world changes instantly. Kit reads Caleb's palm and tells him they are destined to become friends. She calls birds down from the sky and turns every day into an adventure. Her magic is contagious, making Caleb question the rules and order in his life. But being Kit's friend means embracing deception and danger, and soon Caleb will have to decide if his friendship with Kit is really what's best for him-or her.

The Greatest Story Ever Told

John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell

In 1976, John Maxwell received a gift from his assistant at that time, Eileen. He unwrapped it to find a book titled: The Greatest Story Ever Told. He was eager to read it, but when he opened it, the pages were blank. Inside was a note from Eileen that said, "John, your life is before you. Fill these pages with kind acts, good thoughts and matters of your heart. Write a great story with your life." For the first time it made him think about how he was the author of his life, and could fill every "page" with whatever he wanted. It made him want to be significant. It inspired him to do whatever he could to make his life matter.Today Maxwell is recognized as the #1 authority on leadership, his books have sold 26 million copies in 50 languages, and his companies have trained 5 million people to be leaders in 180 countries. He wants to give the gift that had such impact on him thirty years ago to others. And so the pages of THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD are empty, their lines waiting to be filled with the stories of a new generation.

Stuff That Sucks

Ben Sedley
Authors:
Ben Sedley

Each of us has thoughts that are painful at times; sometimes the pain is sadness, sometimes worry or anger or shame or grief or some feeling that you don't even have words for. If you are a young person struggling with your emotions, you do not want to be told that 'everyone feels like that' or that 'you will grow out of it'. You want to feel that your emotions are valid and that the person offering help truly understands how painful life can feel at times. With a strong emphasis on validation and compassion, Stuff That Sucks encourages you to accept your emotions rather than struggling against them. It also shows how to reconnect with what is really important to you, giving you the tools to help clarify your personal values and take steps towards living a life where those values can guide you in your day-to-day behaviour.

Practising Happiness

Ruth A. Baer
Authors:
Ruth A. Baer

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention that originates in Eastern meditation traditions but is increasingly discussed and practised in Western culture. It is usually defined as focusing one's complete attention on present-moment experiences in a non-judgemental and accepting way. Buddhist traditions suggest that the cultivation of mindfulness through the practice of meditation reduces suffering and cultivates positive qualities, such as insight, wisdom, compassion and equanimity. In recent years, the Western mental health community has adapted mindfulness meditation practices for use in medical and mental health settings, and several interventions based on mindfulness training are now widely available. Those with the best scientific support include mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These treatments can be applied to a wide range of problems, disorders and populations and the evidence increasingly supports their efficacy.Practising Happiness is the first self-help book to integrate the wisdom, skills and practices available from the four leading evidence-based mindfulness treatments (MBSR, MBCT, DBT and ACT).FREE audio content and guided meditations are available at www.practising-happiness.co.uk

Peter Spiers

We all know them and see them in our communities - those amazingly hale, hearty and happy older folks who glide from doubles tennis and a class in digital photography in the morning, to their book club and a board meeting at the community food bank in the afternoon, to a duplicate bridge tournament or choir practice in the evening. We marvel at their stamina and high spirits. They're having fun, they've got a million friends, they're sharp as tacks and they look like they'll go on that way forever. You've heard the expression "Sixty is the new forty" and these are the people they're talking about...baby boomers and beyond.These people didn't get the way they are by consuming the latest fad in dietary supplements or by training their brains with computer software. Their secret - revealed and explained in MASTER CLASS: LIVING LONGER, STRONGER AND HAPPIER - is an active lifestyle that blends moving, thinking, socializing, and creating. These four key elements can be found in 25 core activities or "master activities" that utilize two or more of the elements in fun and exciting ways. For example, ballroom dancing incorporates all four of the elements. Some other examples of "master activities" include learning an instrument or a foreign language, digital photography, genealogy and volunteer work. Readers will: * Hear inspirational stories from active seniors about the joy and fulfilment they find in their rich and active daily lives. *Learn why activities that combine moving, thinking, socializing and creating are key to successful aging, vitality, cognitive health and happiness. * Learn how to enrich activities they love and are already doing and turn them into building blocks of an enriching lifestyle.With an introduction from a leading brain expert and careful references to relevant research throughout, MASTER CLASS: LIVING LONGER, STRONGER AND HAPPIER is supported by the latest research in the fields of psychology and neuro-science, while built on the concrete foundation of the real experiences of real people.
