Product Description

“Once upon a time I was perfectly happy—complacent even. But then my world came crashing down and I was suddenly a single mum of two small children, losing sleep over how to pay the bills. The things I learned allowed me to retain my sanity, self-esteem, and sense of humour and to help my children get through the experience. I discovered how to release the traumatic experiences and emotions that were holding me back and find more fun, fulfillment, and balance in my life (not to mention my lovely husband!)”

"Once upon a time I was perfectly happy - complacent, even. But then my world came crashing down and I was suddenly a single mum of two small children, losing sleep over how to pay the bills. My health suffered and my weight yoyo-ed as I tried to get my life in order. Luckily I'd done a lot of personal development through books and CDs and with the help of skilled practitioners. The things I learned allowed me to retain my sanity, self-esteem and sense of humour and to help my children get through the experience. I discovered how to release the traumatic experiences and emotions that were holding me back, get my weight under control and find more fun, fulfilment and balance in my life (not to mention my lovely husband!) Because I know from personal experience how challenging life can be this allows me to empathise with my clients' and readers' problems and worries and I love to help them create the life they deserve".
Her experience as a single mum prompted Vivienne to write a book about the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 28 May 2014
By Nicci O
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If your relationship breaks down and you find yourself alone and trying to come to terms with life then this book will be an absolute lifeline. Sometimes it can appear to be an almost impossible task just to move forward but when there's children involved you just have to get on with it. This book not only tells the stories of other women in your position but also provides a wealth of practical help. This is a self-help book with a difference, it will guide you every step of the way. I particularly appreciated being able to contact professionals directly and their guidelines were very clearly explained.

5.0 out of 5 stars A positive motivational slant on what can be such a despairing experience 21 May 2014
By r smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Written from the actual heartfelt feelings, of such a broad spectrum of so many women, with similarly difficult if not seemingly impossible circumstances, following such traumatic break-ups. It keeps you smiling all the way through, because it describes how you must be able to look back at yourself and NOT under any circumstances, feel alone or take too much time introspectively whinging. Pick yourself up, dust off and move on.
