  • Here is the revolutionary idea of Positive Psychology - which focuses on  strengths rather than weaknesses and asserts that happiness is not the result of good genes or random luck. Happiness can be cultivated by identifying and using the strengths and traits the individual already has: including kindness, generosity, originality, humour and optimism. These signature strengths can not only develop a natural buffer against misfortune and the experience of negative emotions, but can move lives up to a new and more positive plane.

  • Unexpected, life changing insights from an in-depth study of the lives of the Bible's infamous ladies: Delilah, Jezebel, Rahab, Lot's wife and more.  All were inundated with temptations and the demands of everyday life - just like today.  So what can we learn from them? The author combines contemporary story-telling, a sense of humour, encouragement and a verse-by-verse study of their lives and meaningful life lessons. As Liz herself puts it: For ten years I studied bunches of Biblical role models and finally realised what we had in common: Zilch! Sarah was so faithful, Esther was so courageous, Mary was so innocent. I was so none-of-the-above. Then I happened on  Jezebel...I identified with her pushy personality...her need for control. I sympathised with her angry outbursts and I began to wonder...Could those Bad Girls from the past teach us how to be Good Girls in the present?
  • If you want to have a life rather than existence, then learn to be bold - learn how to give and receive praise.  Giving praise can change your life and the lives of those around you, but most of us have no idea how to give or receive it! Praise costs nothing, takes practically no time and is available to all. It would be considered a crime to allow someone to go six days without food, yet we let people go sixty days, sixty weeks, sixty years without praise or recognition. The power of praise will encourage you to embrace change, take risks, fail and try again, act on your dreams and believe in yourself.

Black and white photographs.

  • From early youth, Sandra Gibson had been plagued by psychic experiences which intrigued and terrified her. At the age of 29 she was convinced she was either going mad or possessed by an evil spirit so she underwent hypnotherapy in a final attempt to save her sanity.  She learnt to accept the reality of the psychic experiences and channel those power for positive ends.  This is a journal of her experiences, drawn in part from recordings of the therapy sessions and trances.
  • Herbs have accompanied us since the dawn of Man.  They are a part of myth and legend, the secret ingredients of witches; they have beautified gardens and appeared in Shakespeare's  plays.  They have provided infinite value to health, beauty and cuisine.  Here re herbs and their uses, how to grow them, how to make herbal pillows, creams, shampoos and potpourris, as well as directions for extracting herbal essences for health or beauty.
  • Jung died in 1961 without ever having presented a systematic summary of his psychology. For the past 30-plus years, his ideas have been explored, explained and amplified by thousands of others with varying results. This book takes the reader to the source. It was designed for those seeking an understanding of relevant terms and concepts as they were used by Jung himself. There are choice extracts from his Collected Works but no reference to other writers. It is not a critique or a defence of Jung's though but a guide to its richness and an illustration of the broad scope and inter-relationship of his interests. Overall, the Lexicon contains a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of analytical psychology.
  • In 1935, a young mother wrote a letter to a magazine, asking for help.  At a time when a woman's place was in the home, she bravely admitted that she was lonely and frustrated.  The letter struck a chord with women country-wide and so a secret magazine was born: The Co-operative Correspondence Club, or CCC.  With amazing and stunning honesty, the members wrote about every aspect of their lives:  the pain and elation of childbirth, the challenges of marriage, broken hearts and faded dreams.  In a day and age without Internet chat room or forums, they connected, supported each other and experienced life time friendships. This is their story....and during the days of COVID, this may be the life preserver need, because the problems of home-making, raising children and making a happy family don't change.
  • The Celtic approach to mysticism is holistic, with little distinction made between the sacred and the secular, or between the physical world and the spiritual. The spiritual awareness grew from Celtic myths and legends: god-like warriors; druids who could walk between the worlds; and magical lands that lay on the boundaries of earthly kingdoms. Celtic mysticism is an approach to life and this book brings the Celtic world - its histories and stories - into a modern context. The important myths and the Celts' feeling for their world is explored and explained and there are exercises to increase your awareness of the power of nature and its holistic character as well as using meditation  and mind-journeying to meet Celtic archetypes.
  • What you think and what you believe has a profound effect on what you do and how you do it. You can achieve - when you believe. If you think you can't - then you never will. But your thoughts are not set in stone, nor concrete. If you can learn how to ride a bike, read, or play chess - then you can learn to control your thinking and in doing so, control your life. Here is the how-to: how to change the way you think, setting goals, expanding your thinking and twelve principles to get you on the road to the life you deserve.
