The Bridge




A 9-step programme guiding you from heartbreak to self-compassion and whole-hearted living

Every single one of us is living with the aftershocks of heartbreak. Whether it's the sting of not fitting in at school or the pain of witnessing our parents' divorce, the end of our own marriage or the death of a loved one, to be human is to bear the wounds of all our losses and setbacks.

Heartbreak can manifest itself as depression, anxiety, self-sabotage, an inability to feel emotions, make connections, or live life on your own terms. Donna's practical 9-step programme will empower you with the tools and support you need to gain clarity, identify what has hurt you, and learn how to release the pain, fear and anger keeping you trapped.

Donna will teach you how to care for yourself with love, give you the courage to really feel your feelings, step into your authentic self and move towards whole-hearted living.

This book is for anyone who is experiencing pain, heartbreak, sadness or overwhelming emotion, and can't seem to get beyond it. All of us want to be able to live with more compassion, The Bridge will help us get there.
