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.
“Very helpful for someone who knows someone who is struggling and is looking for ways to help”.

"Thank you, Susan, for this comprehensive companion guide for anyone experiencing emotional distress and anxiety. Your book is beautifully accessible -- readers will come away with knowledge about the physiology of emotion, the easy-to-use tools which can be helpful in regulating emotion, and an awareness of when professional help might also be indicated. I also appreciate the way your book weaves in pieces of wisdom from a number of experts in the fields of mindfulness and self-compassion. I am frequently referring your book to current clients, and can only imagine how useful it would have been during my years working in an oncology setting! Thank you again..."
