Do you struggle with knowing who you are? Is it hard to make decisions or even know what you want? If you do know what you want, is it hard to ask for it? Sometimes we used to know who we were and then a life change happened such as divorce, illness, retirement, or graduation, and we feel lost. This workbook is designed to help you become strong in your identity and stay true to yourself. Through guided exercises you will learn more about yourself, your needs, and what makes you…you.

It's easy to lose sight of who we truly are and what we genuinely desire. Therapist Maureen Kane has created a remarkable guide that invites readers on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. The Guide Back to You Workbook, designed to be used independently or in conjunction with a therapist, includes a skillful combination of mindfulness, cognitive techniques, and practical strategies. As you go through the workbook, your own discoveries will spark enthusiasm and guide you to pursue a life aligned with your truth, identity and purpose.

Maureen Kane has given us the best gift: Ourselves. The exercises in this gem of a workbook are thought-provoking and fun. This book is the best friend you always wish you had, the wise one who makes you laugh. The one who makes you feel it will all be okay. The one who truly sees you and mirrors back an image of your highest self. By the end of this workbook, you, too, will see yourself as you truly are.
