my inspirational books
My first published book, the Journey of the Slim Soul, was born of my first business as a clinical hypnotherapist. I plan to launch the second edition on Kindle in 2019.
My second published book is a memoir about the last months of my father’s life. In it, I walk the talk of trusting that everything is always perfect and that the Universe always has my back. I do not plan to make it available for sale on this website or on online platfforms at this point but if you would like to purchase an electronic copy, feel free to contact me through the contact form and I will arrange for a private transaction.
the journey of the slim soul
What is inspired me? My own frustration at all the diets out there that do not work. I had been struggling with body confidence and a feeling of being fat all my life. My mother put me on a diet at the age of twelve when I was not even fat. She and her mother were obsessed with weight loss. My mother was almost always on a diet. We had the same body shape, unlike my sister, so she enrolled me into her crazy eating habits. I know she meant well. She thought she was doing me a favour but instead, she destroyed my self confidence. I later learnt that she had been suffering from anorexia when she was younger.
The Journey of the Slim Soul offers a holistic approach to slimming without dieting, strenuous exercise and calorie counting. It offers seven golden steps to slimming, the first one being to love yourself as you are today. I am planning to launch the ten year anniversary edition of the Journey of the Slim Soul on Kindle in 2019 so if you are interested, sign up for my Pleasure Diet newsletter, and you will receive information as to when it will be available. There will also be a BIG party with lots games and prizes in November (which is when my book came out ten years ago).
My father who art in heaven
in 2008, my father was diagnosed with a brain tumour. I knew it was the modality he chose to leave this earth. In the fall of 2013, his tumour took a turn for the worse and he started going downhill. We had planned to visit him in France with my husband and my younger two children (then seven and two) but given that I wasn’t sure what I would find, we decided that it would be best if I went alone. This is where my memoir My Father Who Art In Heaven starts. This first trip to visit him as he started to lose both his speech and balance and needed a wheelchair for the first time in his life.
My Father Who Art In Heaven is not a morbid book. It is a story of magic, love and forgiveness. From that trip in November 2013 until the day he died on the 6th of March 2014, I experienced truly inspiring moments and a reunion with my Dad that I would have never imagined possible given that he could no longer speak. It confirmed to me everything I believed about life, death and what happens to us after we die. As a medium, I was not sure if I would stand the test of my own father dying but I was not disappointed. On the actual day of his death, I saw him ascend into heaven as he could not wait to share his joy.
