The Art of Self-Kindness

My third book, The Art of Self-Kindness, is now available for pre-order and will hit shelves in Australia and New Zealand in a month’s time!

This book is a beautiful complement to The Universe Listens to Brave in that it follows the same format of quotes, inspirations, and affirmations set within chapter themes.

The Art of Self-Kindness is here to honour your relationship with yourself. It focuses on how we come to be our own best friend, and the power of understanding our own worthiness.

This book is for you if …

you’re the one with sensitivity as a super-power
though you’re still learning to offer it to yourself

you’re the first to share a kind word with others
even when your self-talk is rarely gentle

you’re known for your generosity
but you forget to give to yourself

you forgive easily but not when you look in the mirror
because you hold yourself to a standard of goodness that’s honourable
but without the balance of permission to make mistakes

you’re the one who needs a reminder of your humanness
and the importance of holding your own heart as warmly as you hold others

you’re the one who questions your worthiness,
even though you’re loved, so loved, but not sure how to love yourself

you’re brave and willing
and you’re here, on a journey back to yourself
through the art of self-kindness.

Pre-orders are a huge deal for me as an author because they give my publisher your vote of confidence in my work. You can grab it by clicking the button below!

Please note that if you live outside Australia or New Zealand, the book is not yet available internationally. I’ll announce it as soon as it is, thank you for your patience!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for inviting this book into your hands and soul. I know you’ll love it!

The Universe Listens to Brave is a collection of inspirations on courage. It was born because of you: the ones seeking and finding your brave. It’s you, my courageous community, that brought this book to life. For every one of you that asked if they could find my quotes in print somewhere, for every one of you that wanted to share the brave we collectively embody here with someone you love, this book is for you. 

The book is designed with a stunning hardcover and beautifully watercolour flourishes throughout its 200 pages. Hold in your hands and you’ll savour one hundred of my most loved quotes across ten themes: Acceptance, Fear, Uncertainty, Healing, Courage, Hope, Rise, Trust, Kin, Journey.

This is the book that will sit gently by your side when you’re setting an intention, making a big decision, or doing the work of healing, grieving, creating, or learning to love yourself. It’s the book you’ll want to give your best friend, or your Mum, or your sister for her own journey.

I cannot wait for you to get your hands on it! Click to get yours now!

Be Happy: 35 Powerful Habits for Personal Growth and Well-Being

Be Happy is my first book! It’s a beautifully designed hardcover that contains my favourite psychological techniques to transform your well-being and inspire you to live a life of thriving.

Be Happy is a practical guide for forming 35 daily habits that will invigorate, energise, and inspire you. In the book, I guide you through the four central tenets of Choosing, Cultivating, Practicing, and Making Space For the good things in your world. For example:

  • Choosing to focus on life’s joys instead of its hardships.
  • Cultivating a positive inner voice instead of always criticising yourself.
  • Practicing mindful productivity instead of multi-tasking overload.
  • Making space for crises instead of shutting down when things get tough.

Be Happy is a perfect gift for that special someone in your life who needs brightening. And it’s the best kind of gift to yourself in the service of personal growth and self care.
