I am so excited to tell you about my newest publication!
Calm in the Storm is a collection of simple emotion regulation strategies that can be self-learned and then utilized in moments of over-whelming emotion (such as anxiety and panic). There are a lot of people who struggle with settling strong emotions, and whose symptoms are causing a great deal of distress in their lives. My hope in creating this book is that the strategies can work for a wide range of individuals, helping them cope by empowering them to settle emotions.
The book is not intended to replace counselling, but rather to provide a collection of efficient strategies that can be learned and then applied in a moment of emotional flooding, to reduce despair and to return to the present.
“This resource is what every person who lives with anxiety or any effect of trauma needs to read. I’ve been a trauma therapist for thirty years and I’ve been waiting for something that is easy to read, short, and offers a breadth of grounding tools that the reader can apply to their every day lives. THIS is that resource, well done Susan!”

This book is a much-needed resource for anyone seeking self-soothing techniques to weather strong emotions. Offering techniques to help navigate dysregulation, this resource is a wonderful opportunity to help us better understand and work with our nervous systems. While we can’t control life, we can manage our response to the ride!”
