Launch event for Navigating Loneliness: How to connect with yourself and others, by Cheryl Rickman with Special Guest, Terry Waite CBE

7pm online on Wednesday 26th May 2021

Exclusively from P&G Wells, join Cheryl Rickman, Hampshire author, psychology practitioner and Ambassador of Wellbeing, as she introduces her new book, Navigating Loneliness: How to connect with yourself and others. The book, which is published on 27th May, has a foreword kindly written by Terry Waite CBE (who as a hostage endured the extraordinary hardship of five years in solitary confinement) and he will be joining as a Special Guest. 

 Cheryl will read from the book, take us through a couple of exercises on self-connection and connecting better with others, and share some ideas on activities to boost wellbeing, followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions.  Participants will be invited to join a private Facebook group, where they can connect and support each other after the event, should they wish to. 

  Cheryl has written and ghost-written 25 books over the past 16 years and qualified as a Positive Psychology Practitioner in 2016. She splits her time between writing books to help people fret less and flourish more, spending time in nature and reading voraciously. She is also an Ambassador of Wellbeing for the Network for Wellbeing and blogs about tools to help manage mental health. 

 Navigating Loneliness is a highly practical mental health handbook, filled with simple guided exercises and helpful resources to help people navigate their way out of loneliness, create quality new connections and ensure existing relationships are the best they can be. It also provides ways to help people to connect better with themselves in solitude so they may enjoy and value their own company and make the most of time alone to boost their mental wellbeing. 

  ‘This book is a gem! It grabs you by the hand and leads you away from loneliness by providing practical ways to connect more deeply to yourself and others’ — Jen Pastiloff, bestselling author of On Being Human 

‘At a time of rising loneliness and isolation, this is a timely reminder of the vital importance of our relationships – with each other and also with ourselves too. If we want to move from surviving to thriving, we need to be able to connect more authentically and wholeheartedly with ourselves as well as others. This inspiring book shows how we can find happiness – both together in community and alone in solitude’ — Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness 

‘My favourite books are the kind you don’t just read and put down but that you read and put into action. This is one of those books … Packed with really useful tools. A brilliant book I’d recommend to anyone who wants to make the most of time alone or find their tribe’ — Camille Knowles, author and skincare entrepreneur 

‘Cheryl takes us far beyond the average self-help book with a sound theoretical base and engaging exercises’ — Dr Albert Zandvoort, BA Hons, MA, MSc, PhD, DLit et Phil
