About the Book

Success in my hands was written as part of my fundraising journey to raise vital funds for Help For Heroes. It is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to the Armed Forces for the opportunities and adventures that came from being connected with them. My father is ex-army (Royal Engineers) with postings to Malta, Germany (Berlin and Willich), the island of St Helena (South Atlantic Ocean), and Cyprus when I was a child. For twenty-five to thirty years, I had anxiety, depression and panic attacks related to how I viewed my arms. In 2006, I went to Harley Street, London, for help with changing my thinking patterns to live a more peaceful and happier life. Now with a sense of peace and freedom from my past, I am fundraising for Help for Heroes. 25% from the sale price of each book (Success In my Hands) sold will be contributed to Help for Heroes Trading Limited, (Registered Company No. 6363256) which Gift Aids all its taxable profits to Help for Heroes (Registered Charity Number 1120920).


About the Author

Firstly why did I write ‘Success in my hands’? Simply to help me become happier, to start loving a part of me that I didn’t and to be free and at peace to be my self. I have had the overwhelming desire to be happy almost at any cost. I had I guess a sense of an underlying sadness related to my arms. The emotional feelings I wanted to change and be at peace and free from anxiety, depression and the panic attacks that lasted for nearly 30 years. This book is my opportunity to explain that the very words, feelings and actions have had a direct impact on my behaviour from an early age. Whilst writing the journey has been one of letting go of those negative thoughts and replacing them with happier ones so that I can ‘smile’ from the inside. I believed that my happiness was always to come from the ‘inside’. I knew why because my sadness was on the inside, all I had to do was reverse it. But I didn’t know ‘how’ I had to learn it and literally change my whole approach to life. Become enabled by changing the thoughts to happier ones. ☺
