“I wrote this book because I don’t want anyone to feel alone whatever is happening in their lives. All of us will go through crisis and challenge, and I want to be a friend, a guide and a voice through this book, to help inspire and motivate you to go looking for your power, find it, dust it off and let it show you what it can do for you.”

When crises arise, such as relationship breakdown, job and health challenges, a change in friendship and family dynamics or a significant life event, Know Your Own Power can act as a guide offering practical advice and insight as to how these challenges can be overcome.

The book takes the reader on a journey from crisis, through their individual process all the way through to resolution.
