I have been in Therapy for 5 years and now practice as a trainee psychotherapist. I must have read 100 books since I put the word "stuck" into google when I started my search for why I felt empty and unhappy, even though I had been very successful materially and had a loving family. This book is really helpful for anyone who feels the same. The best bit is that the book not only describes examples of what might have created the emptiness but offers practical advice as to how to move forward, something that is very lacking in most academic books. Self-help books are frequently lacking in depth, generalise and are directive rather than empathic.This book tries it's best to break the mould. Finally, I am on the right track, but it takes lots of practice and help to change the ways of thinking, feeling and being that started in childhood. The book is a great start but I strongly believe that then seeking a good therapist, probably from the UKCP or BACP registers (UK), is important. We learned our misguided ways in a relationship and a new reparative relationship with someone who is trained to do this kind of work is invaluable. I say this because guilt and shame are going to be evoked by reading the book and, although the author points out that we shouldn't blame ourselves, we really need to explore this with our therapist. The book offers HOPE and I can endorse that true happiness is possible even after the most traumatic of experiences.

A book which clearly explains how the effects of CEN can have an impact on the emotional well being of an individual. Extraordinary book quite in a league of it's own.

The book is actually saying that the problem is invisible so to define it solves this. BUT what needs to be addressed is the fact that people with this problem FEEL invisible. Everyone wants a solution when they are stood in a group of 5+ people and cant get in. That shut out feeling. The inability to light up someone within those 5 people such that they are drawn to talk to you..means a deep empty feeling at social events & neglect feelings as an adult as well as a child.

I hope this author makes the connection between these two and writes or does a video on the connection
