Anger shame and guilt

Reclaiming power and choice

This is my best book! I share my opinion with you since I have seen how ‘Anger, Shame and Guilt’ has changed peoples’ lives. By using the ‘Compass of Needs’, decision making becomes easier and your life more empowered. Many of us spend a lot of time and energy trying to avoid anger, shame and guilt. With the help of the user friendly exercises in the book you can make these emotions your friends rather than your enemies.

Relationships

Freedom without Distance, Belonging without Control

Do you long to see your intimate relationships blossom?

The most important of all the questions in this book might be the one about how you want your relationships to be. If your answer to that question is clear, it will be much easier to know how to act and what to request of the other person in the relationship.

Imagine that you are well prepared to go on an important mission in Paris. You have rented a Vespa, learnt some key phrases in French, you’re in time and you have a city map in your hand. But whatever you do everything seems to go wrong. However fast you drive, you still do not  arrive at your destination. But you have learnt that it is important to have a positive attitude so you smile, shake off your frustration and try to find it again. After a few hours, you discover that the map you have in your hand is a map of London … Not Paris.

The same is true in relationships. All tools in the world becomes redundant if you do not know what you want to use them for. Your positive attitude will make it easier to stand challenges, but will not take you to your goal.This booklet will help you inspect, repair, and tune the relationships that you want to see flower. With  dedicated passion, you can use the tools in this booklet to create clarity and make your relationships with others what you dream of.
