Julia received the call every parent dreads: her daughter Barbara has been killed in a car accident. Still reeling from her loss months later, Julia embarks on a fascinating journey into her inner world of metaphors, uncovering wounds both new and old that she must heal before she can embrace living again.
Read the actual transcripts of Julia's twelve sessions with her counselor Gina Campbell, whose comments from the facilitator's chair reveal how uncovering the metaphors that deepen Julia's self-exploration open her to new possibilities and healing. Campbell uses Clean Language, a questioning method developed by innovative coach and counselor David Grove, that gives voice to the subconscious mind's healing wisdom. A deep respect for Julia's self-directed journey shines through Campbell's patient questions that lead to surprisingly profound discoveries.
Each chapter of Hope in a Corner of My Heart includes an activity with the same Clean Language questions used to guide Julia so you can take your own journey to get to better know your best self.
