How would you say your life is going? Would you like to grow it further? My life at the moment is going quite well. I have a great family, I love my job as a counselling and coaching adult child and family psychiatrist. I have friends and am grateful for my health. However, life did not start out like that. I did not feel whole or integrated as a person. I struggled within myself. My sense of self-esteem, who I was and what can I do anyway were all a bit of a mystery. In many ways I was alone. Not so now. Things have changed. Out of this struggle has come this book. Here, from my knowledge of people (which is my job) I take complex and essential concepts and reshape them into a picture language to make it easy to see how change can happen. Things can change for you.
Many of us feel a sense of loss, instability, insecurity, and sometimes struggle with dysfunctional and disconnected relationships. We may be into habits which other people may not know about and which we know are not helpful. We may have other problems possibly to do with how we use our time, our body, what we think about and feel, right through to what is going on in the core of our life. These things might have only just recently started or might have gone on for a very long time.
That is why I wrote this book, “The CURE for Life: God Centred Transformation”. I wanted to find a simple big picture way of looking at life and change. I needed it for myself, and I needed to understand the complexities of psychiatry as well as what it means for a person to be whole. As I went on in life, and journeyed with some other professionals who work with people, we came up with this picture language or a visual pathway to change. Wholistic transformation: spiritually personally and socially can be in your hands and more so, in your hearts. A transformation which can help you to be more connected, with a sense of belonging and having a greater capacity for impact in this world. From here we can rise up to greater heights, but in a way which would not let or even put other people down.
How do we do this? The clue is in the very simple title, the “CURE” standing for four steps which we need to continually take in order to grow ourselves and also help others grow. This book will provide for you a transferable picture language for yourself to be transformed more and which you can use to help others.
This book will provide you a visual pathway which you can take step-by-step, which you can refer back to overtime, and share with others in a practical way… Your unique way.
