    Like so many others who have contacted you, my self-esteem is in the toilet. I came across some of your articles while looking for books on thinking positive and self-esteem. I was just wondering if your book had come out already or when it would be available for purchase? I was also wondering how do I sign up to receive the weekly articles you send out or your blog?

  6. Hi There! Thanks for reaching out. Book is still in the works-however, I do believe you can sign up on HealthyPlace or every Wednesday check back- that’s when my blog is up.
    Take Good Care,

    Hi, I come from Hong Kong . I have a question.
    Actually , I did many things why i can’t aware the feeling?
    Thank you ~

  8. Do you mean that you cant become aware of the feelings? If so I am glad to help, sometimes we get so overwhelmed with staying in “our head” that we cant become aware of how our body responds to stress or get in touch with our sense of self. Once we do this we have a better opportunity to connect and learn what we need. Does this help answer your question?

    I agree with you about self esteem, confidence and its all up to the individual. I’ve just been diagnosed with Bi Polar. It hasn’t been easy the past few weeks but I’m determined to fight this head on and get back on track. I believe in myself and I will do this.

    Enjoyed reading you’re blog :)

    You mean I can learn to be happy and confident??
    It seems very abstract……..
    Compared with other,I always feel inferior or not good, I always depend on others . I want to learn how to become much more confident ,independent. How to do this? Is it possible?

  11. Kathryn says:

    Hi. I need some good material on helping my 9yr old w low self esteem. I’d love to do a workshop w her. We live in mass. But I’m willing to travel.

  12. Coleen Harper says:

    Emily, I’m looking forward to be involved in using your tools, as I have suffered all my life with poor self-esteem! I’m also ready to put some goals ahead of me to overcome many mental illnesses!! Its uncanny that Ive had all this turmoil in my life, but my entire childhood I was a champion swimmer from ages 8-16. So why can’t I apply myself today as I did then?? Yes, only Coleen knows that answer!? Time to be a Champion again, and putting ME first!!!
