Like many women, Sarah’s caring nature and her longing for a close, loving family pushed her to meet her family’s needs at the expense of her own. In her forties, Sarah constantly felt anxious, depressed, and filled with self-doubt. She wanted change—to be heard, to feel safe, and to stop the hurtful treatment. But how?

Sarah didn’t know she had the right to challenge harmful treatment. She didn’t know how to insist that her requests were met. Sarah thought her role was to keep everyone in her family happy, regardless of how she felt. She didn’t know how to use her personal power. Sarah’s journey of change is traced throughout the book.

Like Sarah, if you want to empower yourself, especially in your relationships, Ignite Your Power: Unmasking the Five Faces of Anger describes how you can achieve this. Sarah’s journey and the stories of many others, both de-identified clients and examples, will guide you on your journey to achieve enduring change.

Your journey starts where you are now, with this thoughtful and practical book as your guide. With the nine skills and capabilities, you will be able to speak up, take action, and reshape your life to suit you.

Such a useful and powerful book
This book is a powerful tool for helping people understand how their assertive anger can be useful and powerful! It has enabled me to make important choices that serve my needs rather than the needs of other antagonistic and aggressive forces. It’s such an engaging read, and the scenarios that the writer uses to illustrate her insights and observations make so much sense! It’s a book that I will keep referring to well into the future.

Since reading Eve’s book, I have come to understand why I had trouble finding that middle ground of an assertive stance with loved ones. The examples in Ignite your Personal Power really helped me to understand why a certain person lashes out quite illogically at times, and how I could react to that assertively. I am now standing up for myself more. Being someone who has experienced violence in past times, I only wish I had read this book earlier.

Eve’s book changed my life. It is a book for everyone who has ever had their voice silenced, told to be quiet, or told how to fit into the world. Ignite Your Power has real strategies for healing emotional wounds, especially those from childhood, and gives its reader the strength to speak up, be heard, and be present in each moment.
I’ve been recommending it to everyone! I can’t speak highly enough of the book; wish I’d read it years ago!
