"Dr Ray Owen is a clinical psychologist working in cancer and palliative care, and with two decades of experience he’s very well placed to reflect upon our varied responses to a major life crisis. Using the metaphor of a storm, he takes us (admirably thoroughly) through the stages of preparing for the arrival of a major life crisis, its passing through, and dealing with its aftermath." - Julia Bueno, The Independent Practitioner, Autumn 2011
"At some point all of us will face a life crisis. This pragmatic yet warm-hearted book helps us to recognise that it is not so much a question of avoiding this truth, nor of living in dread of difficulty, but a question of discovering how we can face each and every moment of our lives (including the desperate ones) with honesty and with a willingness to work with our experience as it is rather than as we would like it to be. Ray Owen offers us a pragmatic tool kit that is highly relevant to the process of working with the storms of our lives and our everyday life experience with a greater degree of awareness, compassion and understanding." - Rebecca Crane, Bangor University, UK
"I would recommend this book to everyone interested in learning from a highly experienced palliative care clinician who has himself learnt from many people making final journeys – still finding routes through that are filled with laughter, hope and resilience." - Julie Stokes OBE – Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, Founder of Winston's Wish
"Dr Owen encourages people to find routes for themselves that are filled with laughter, hope and resilience. I recommend this book to those who are facing a crisis of any kind. Dr Owen has provided an excellent guide for clients and professionals alike. *****" - Jane Ross, Nursing Standard, Volume 26, Number 30, 2012
