Description

A Psychological Path of Healing and Growth

Being Me begins by using Attachment Theory and Neuroscience to describe what a child needs from their early relationships, to grow into a secure and whole person. It then delves into what can occur, to your sense of self and your experience of relationship, if you didn't get some of these attachment needs met in a "good enough" way. Most importantly, it illuminates a path you can now take as an adult, to heal these psychological wounds and become a person who feels secure, connected, real and whole. Being Me is written simply; with a depth and insight only known by someone who has travelled this path. It provides a way for you to heal when you are feeling disconnected, experiencing emotional difficulties, mental health concerns or problems with relationships. It will be of interest to those wanting to understand themselves more deeply, and for those who yearn to live and love more fully. Parents will get clarity about the psychological needs of their child, while mental health professionals will gain an appreciation for what is required in therapeutic work.



REVIEWS



"Being Me" is a wise and comprehensive guide that integrates the theory and the experience of our psychological development and path of healing. Using the analogy of building a house it outlines each stage of emotional and interpersonal development, and the tasks for healing ourselves when our attachment experiences have been less than optimal. Written in a warm and accessible way this book contains inspiration, education and practical advice for healing and personal development. This book is rich in scope and depth and will repay multiple readings providing hope and guidance for the long but worthwhile journey of recovery from emotional wounds and reaching your full potential. Ally Lawrence, MPsych; Clinical Psychologist, Australia



This book was a great read, incorporating scientific evidence and personal experience in a way that was both engaging and educational. I particularly enjoyed the section on emotional balance and regulation. The exercises which were included within each chapter provided a wonderful experiential component. Ms Rachael Williams, MPsych; Clinical Psychologist, Australia

"BEING ME is a beautiful book that will be useful to me for a long time. In the past, when I read books of a similar vein (psychology/self-help), I found myself feeling ashamed, guilty or less than in my plight to better myself. Not in this case! BEING ME has been written with such heartfelt compassion, that even though some of the content had me delving into the shadow parts of myself, the author Maree B. Even guided me through it so lovingly that I felt held throughout the process. The way Maree explains concepts is very clear and the exercises that support the explanations are practical and easy to do. I related to this book so much and felt, at times, that it was written for me. Maree's approach to explaining and guiding the reader is truly a whole being approach. The beginning of the book dedicates itself to ALL of you, and this deeper meaning is not lost on me. Thank you for such an important book and message."
