Launch event for Navigating Loneliness: How to connect with yourself and others

My new book – NAVIGATING LONELINESS: How to connect with yourself and others, has a Foreword kindly written by Terry Waite CBE (who, as a hostage, endured the extraordinary hardship of FIVE YEARS in solitary confinement) and I’m deeply honoured to announce…

Terry will be joining my VIRTUAL BOOK LAUNCH as my special guest! 

The virtual book launch takes place online (I’ll be Zooming from my favourite local bookshop – P&GWells) in two weeks time: at 7pm GMT on Wednesday 26th May 2021.

And I would absolutely love for you to join me if you can?

Terry and I will both read a bit from the book and I’ll take us through a couple of exercises on self-connection and connecting better with others. I’ll also share a few ideas on activities to boost mental health and wellbeing, followed by an opportunity for you to ask Terry and I questions.

So, if you’d like to support my book launch and join in – you can grab your spot (with or without a signed copy of the book) by clicking here

About the book

Navigating Loneliness is a highly practical mental health handbook, filled with simple guided exercises and helpful resources to help people navigate their way out of loneliness, create quality new connections and ensure existing relationships are the best they can be. It also provides ways to help people to connect better with themselves in solitude so they may enjoy and value their own company and make the most of time alone to boost their mental wellbeing.  

‘This book is a gem! It grabs you by the hand and leads you away from loneliness by providing practical ways to connect more deeply to yourself and others’ — Jen Pastiloff, bestselling author of On Being Human 

‘At a time of rising loneliness and isolation, this is a timely reminder of the vital importance of our relationships – with each other and also with ourselves too. If we want to move from surviving to thriving, we need to be able to connect more authentically and wholeheartedly with ourselves as well as others. This inspiring book shows how we can find happiness – both together in community and alone in solitude’ — Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness 

‘My favourite books are the kind you don’t just read and put down but that you read and put into action. This is one of those books … Packed with really useful tools. A brilliant book I’d recommend to anyone who wants to make the most of time alone or find their tribe’ — Camille Knowles, author and skincare entrepreneur 

‘Cheryl takes us far beyond the average self-help book with a sound theoretical base and engaging exercises’ — Dr Albert Zandvoort, BA Hons, MA, MSc, PhD, DLit et Phil
