How do you become more aware of who you are and what you need? Your daily life contains lots of information and mirrors to help you with this. Learning to allow and understand your emotions and feelings leads to inner growth and fulfillment. Still, you tend to run away from them.
The wisdom behind emotion and feeling - Your daily life as a mirror takes you on a journey through the wisdom behind all your emotions and feelings. It helps you to access them, not only by providing a clear theoretical framework, but also by sharing practical examples, experience stories and tips.
The author shares both her professional expertise and her life story with the reader. Her belief in the power of openness, connection and trust is therefore tangible and convincing. The reflection questions at the end of each chapter help to successfully complete the search for wisdom behind emotion and feeling.
A Note From the Publisher
“Wendy has written a very accessible and wonderful book. She has combined lived experience and wisdom to describe difficult topics in a very fresh and understandable way. If you want to learn more about yourself and your relationships, you will find answers here.
Emotions and behavior are explained and pathways and options are shown in a very clear and transparent way. I would recommend this book to anyone in management and leadership. You may read this book from cover to cover or pick up chapters and subjects as needed. Wendy has left you the choice to decide for yourself. A refreshing and wise book to keep close!”
– Andrea Walraven-Thisen, strategic critical incident manager, expert in psychotraumatology (Germany)
“The design is very welcoming and comforting. Wendy talks with the reader and not at them. She strikes the right cord in pulling the reader into one’s own story. Reading the book meant a lot to me. I heartily recommend this book to others.”
– David Johnson, business support administrator at Christie’s (UK)
"This book allows you to be your own emotions coach. It is well structured with easy to understand information and life examples. I think it’s brilliant!"
- Valerie Navarro, life coach (France/Malaysia)
"I love the concept and the reflection questions of this book. The reflection questions are great for relating experience to the concepts. And seeing how I individually process things: what emotions I let myself feel and experience completely, and the ones I run away from often exacerbating the problems. The book is also helping me work through some grief and despair over a recent difficult situation in my life.
- Monica O'Connor, beta reader (Australia)
"I used to think more in outcomes rather than in an emotional journey. This book made me realize that it is helpful to think about my own humanity. I recommend this book to people who are keen to learn about themselves; and about their needs.
The language is clear, but the meanings can be complex. In order to digest the content and get maximum value out of it, I advice to read and reflect in small chunks. I’d love to read more.
- Ruth Hopkins, administrator at Shelter UK
"The wisdom behind emotion and feeling is well written and majestically performed. If you’re keen on emotions, how they affect daily life and how you can gain insight and thus control them, this is THE book for you.
- Barbara Abraham, municipal advisor (Netherlands)
"This book is fantastic! It covers a great range of topics and the various exercises are well thought through and easy to follow. I really like the structure of the book and the way in which Wendy has approached it.”
- Scott Buckler, chartered psychologist (UK)
