The Secrets of Calm

by Ballagh, Rebekah

A treasury of wisdom from a qualified counsellor who has married her gifts of therapy with her talent for warm and whimsical illustrations.

This is an almost talismanic book with simple illustrated exercises and affirmative mantras to take control of worry, guilt and anxiety. It updates classics such as THE LITTLE BOOK OF CALM with unique and inclusive illustrations so that all readers can see themselves reflected in this essential companion, which also features on trend colours and floral motifs, to calm themselves in any difficult moments they may face.

This book is a great reminder that a little positive reflection can go a long way. It offers practical bite-sized advice that is never overwhelming and is a joy to experience through Rebekah's wonderful illustrations.

This book is an extension of Rebekah's very popular Instagram @journey_to_wellness, which has over 300,000 followers in territories around the world. It is continuing to grow at a rapid rate as new readers discover her delightful aesthetics in these harder times.
Additionally, Rebekah is a very good media talent and with her international Instagram following there is certainly potential for digital appearances beyond her home in New Zealand. She is originally a high school counsellor and now works from home as a freelancer with a young baby.
Rebekah Ballagh is a qualified counsellor, an illustrator and the creator of the popular Instagram page called Journey to Wellness - @journey_to_wellness_
