Each chapter dismantles common myths about being in and leaving an abusive relationship and contains activities for self-exploration that survivors can complete as they navigate a new life free from abuse. 

Recommended by the National Coalition of Domestic Violence, this book is designed to benefit any survivor, no matter how much time has passed.

Hard to hear but valuable to the soul!

This is tough, at points, to remember the trauma we were through, but if you WERE through the trauma, there's no choice but to deal with it in some way at some point. I have to admit, this narrator is incredible and great at sounding sympathetic and gentle in her delivery of these points.

Generic

Honestly it just didn’t resonate with me that much, seemed pretty generic. A lot of the things mentioned about how I’m likely feeling, were not how I feel. I’m sure it could help others though.

A good all round help guide

I am a life coach who supports those struggling to recover from narcissistic abuse and feel this is a really good guide for those attempting it on their own. There are also loads of exercises provided as part of this with guidance on how and when to complete them.
