Gillian Padgett’s book signing of Let Stress Heal Your Life — Uncover Your Amazing Capacity to Thrive, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2 at Bookland, has been cancelled.

Are you feeling stressed? The solution for your stress will be found in the new book by local author Gillian Padgett, Let Stress Heal Your Life – Uncover Your Amazing Capacity to Thrive.

Padgett has specialized in stress management for more than 25 years, beginning her practice in England. She has experienced stress herself as well as tragedy and trauma in her own life.

In the U.K. she was a member of the British Association of Counselling. She received many clients from the two main respected insurance companies – British United Provident Association (BUPA) and Private Patients Plan (PPP) – two medical practices and Victim Support. She now coaches clients in the U.K. and Canada.

She says her techniques have helped to empower those who are experiencing stress, as she assists them in finding the best solutions for their situation.

Padgett’s book includes guidelines and practical, proven ways to successfully relieve and resolve stress, becoming stress resilient no matter what may be going on around you. Real life stories are shared, highlighting techniques to use when stress builds or suddenly traumatizes you.

Local counsellor and writer Carole Fawcett, who was also the editor for the book, recommends it for both professionals and their clients alike.

“This book is a must for anyone who works with people who suffer the consequences of stress and for those who have walked with stress in any form,” she said.

Padgett will sign copies of her book Saturday, Dec. 2 at Bookland in downtown Vernon from noon to 2 p.m.
