Debra Recommends A Cure for the Common Life

The Cardinal Rules of Self-Esteem

by Catherine Cardinal, PhD

This book, originally titled the Ten Commandments of Self-Esteem was written by my dear friend, Catherine.   Going beyond what we already know about self-esteem, she offers simple, clear steps that will lead you into the life you deserve.

From Amazon.com:

A CURE FOR THE COMMON LIFE: THE CARDINAL RULES OF SELF-ESTEEM is a small but deceptively powerful book that pinpoints 10 specific ways to recognize the root cause of common emotional problems and, at the same time, determine a realistic course for improvement. What makes this book different from so many other “self-esteem” books is author Dr. Catherine Cardinal and her instinctive, straightforward ability to connect with the heart of the problem. Her compassionate and honest comments then provide a realistic view of the many options we have before the next step.

Written in a clear, thoughtful, all-embracing, and entertaining style, Dr. Catherine Cardinal gives you the confidence and support to finally take that giant leap – and change for your own good.

Debra Recommends The Power of Focusing

Debra Russell recommends, emotional intelligence, success skills

A Practical Guide to Emotional Self-Healing

by Ann Weiser Cornell, Ph.D.

I’ve been personally using these techniques for my own inner work for about 8 years.  And I use these techniques on a regular basis with my private coaching clients.  I find that “focusing” increases emotional intelligence, access to your intuition and a deeper understanding of what you’re really trying to tell yourself when you’re feeling tense or uneasy.

From Amazon:

“Focusing”–defined as a body-oriented process of self-awareness and emotional healing–is employed today by thousands of psychotherapists with their patients. This book, the first to make the methods of this treatment accessible to laypersons, outlines in friendly, nontechnical language how to effectively use focusing to address a variety of issues.
