The Freedom to Be Me

George Dieter

I-Power gives you the tools you need to handle troublesome situations in relationships, whether personal or business, and rise above conditions such as anxiety, depression and chronic pain.

We all too often look for happiness and contentment via relationships, success and recognition — all things that lie outside ourselves. Underpinned by Boundary Theory, I-Power illustrates why this approach is actually at the heart of why we end up experiencing unhappiness and discontent.

By learning to approach life with a boundary focus, we discover that nobody can ‘make’ us feel or do anything; only we are responsible for how we feel. We also become able to switch our rational brain on, and our emotional brain off, when making decisions or facing challenges. And we are far better placed to minimise stress.

By implementing boundaries so that we take responsibility only for ourselves, we will find ourselves able to lessen interpersonal conflict, and greatly enhance our feelings of contentment, fulfilment and balance.

I-Power is essential reading for anyone looking to live a calmer, less stressful life without interpersonal conflict or emotional angst. As well as a valuable resource for psychologists, counsellors and life coaches.

This book provides ... new insights in understanding conflict, relationships and ultimately self-empowerment
