Coming To A Bookstore Near You Wellforce is proud to announce that three of our therapists will be having their work published over the coming weeks; starting with Hypnotherapist Kimberley Willis who is due to have her second book, ‘The Teen Handbook’ released on Friday 1st November. The handbook offers easy solutions to key teenage issues such as confidence, stress, anxiety, exams and sleep problems. Later that month, fellow Hypnotherapist Emma Corrigan will see her book ‘QuickCalm – Bringing Moments Of Calm To Busy Lives’ published on Wednesday 6th November. Abigail Barragray who specialises in Creative and Expressive Arts, will also see her ‘Autism Arts’ drama syllabus for children with special needs published. The syllabus is split into three volumes, and will be launched on Thursday 28th November at the Learning Disability Convention taking place at London’s Olympia Convention Centre. More info about all three publications can be accessed via the news pages of the Wellforce website. Private appointments with the three therapists are available as usual.
