“Reassuring, validating and deeply inspiring” – Suzy Reading, bestselling author of The Self-Care Revolution

Compassionate wisdom in an easy to use format to help you build back and grow after trauma” – Dr Emma Hepburn, clinical psychologist, author of A Toolkit For Your Emotions

“Reading this book will heal what happened to you” – Dr Martha Deiros Collado, clinical psychologist


So many of us experience trauma throughout our lives. Left unaddressed, it can have a long-term impact on our physical, mental and emotional health, restricting our personal growth and leaving us feeling empty and unwell.

In this book, Dr Jessamy Hibberd unriddles the effects of trauma. Using a combination of psychology, neuroscience and her own experiences as a chartered psychologist treating people with trauma, Dr Hibberd unpacks a tough subject and opens up the space for self-healing. This book centres on the concept of ‘post-traumatic growth’, a term used to describe the remarkable way that painful experiences can lead to a valuable reassessment of life and a newfound discovery of meaning.

Through her revolutionary, seven-step programme, readers will learn how to process past events and move forward with a deeper level of self-awareness, a greater sense of purpose, and a renewed self-acceptance. Grounded in research and brought to life with real stories, How to Overcome Trauma and Find Yourself Again will give you the tools to move beyond the hurt and lead a more fulfilling, joyful life.
