She's in Recovery Online resources and community for the women in recovery. "The (addicted) woman is attacked not only for her failure at motherhood, but for her abandonment of more general nurturing and caretaking functions that are at the core of the female role. 'Good' women are primarily concerned with the needs and welfare of others... and when women are no longer willing or able to serve.... - even for reasons beyond (their) control -- the response is usually not support or sympathy...."
Those words were penned by author Marian Sandmaier, in her book THE INVISIBLE ALCOHOLICS, in 1980. http://www.shesinrecovery.com/ -

theshiningmind.com Hello, The Shining Mind is a hypnotherapy and psychotherapy practice set up by Sagaren Pillay in Cambridge. Having successfully dealt with my own issues using hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, Sagaren discovered a strong desire to want to help others to help themselves.
Sagaren's philosophy is that many of us have a stronger, more powerful part of ourselves that is underutilized and they see their role as helping people to reconnect with and lead from that part of themselves, so that they may experience a more fulfilling and rewarding existence.
The journey of self discovery and empowerment is not always easy or straightforward but many have found hypnotherapy to be a simple, fast and effective way to solve their problems and enjoy a better life.
On the website is also included the 3 Step Solution as a free resource to help with healing emotional wounds, letting go of negative habits and living a better life, written by Sagaren Pillay. http://www.theshiningmind.com -
