The Professional Worrier

Stewart Geddes
Authors:
Stewart Geddes

Worry is a natural part of life, but how do we stop it taking from, and taking over, our lives? Stress and anxiety can damage our careers and relationships, can hold us back from exploring new opportunities, and is detrimental to our concentration, mood and self-esteem. And during times when we feel overwhelmed, we often doubt ourselves and our ability to cope - making management of our worries seem impossible. But this is far from the case.In The Professional Worrier, counsellor and psychotherapist Stewart Geddes examines how a simple shift in our mindset to create greater awareness around our anxiety - what areas in our lives we are most vulnerable to it, how it affects us and how we currently tackle it - can create huge changes in our lives, both in challenging moments and in management of everyday stresses.This book explores how anxiety works, offers guidance on identifying how we're most affected and the ways we might be feeding our anxiety, and shows us how to build awareness around anxiety to meet it head on. And The Professional Worrier offers simple, practical ways in which we can take action to manage our worries, big and small.

Violet Hill, the only female private detective in the city, is hired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's business manager to uncover spiritual trickery he believes is deceiving his employer.

When a freak injury causes her unusual ability to suddenly disappear, a dangerous criminal whom she no longer recognises decides to close in.Compelling stories across two eras weave into this page-turning, literary adventure of identity, deception, danger - and detection.'McKervey is a skilful, intelligent storyteller who looks at the world from fresh perspectives; she raises questions about the gap between appearance and reality, truth and fiction, surveillance and security that will stay with a reader long after they finish reading this novel.'

Growing Up So High

Sean O'Connor
Authors:
Sean O'Connor

Seán O'Connor was born in Francis Street, in the Liberties of Dublin, a neighbourhood famous over the centuries for the sturdy independence of its people.Now, in this evocative and affectionate book, he recollects the unique and colourful district of his childhood: the neighbours who lived there, their traditions, talk and lore, the music and poetry of the laneways and markets.Remembrances of the 1940s classroom, of bird-watching in Phoenix Park, of roaming towards adolescence in the streets of his ancestors are mingled with tales of ancient ghosts and the coming of change to the Liberties.O'Connor, father of the novelist Joseph, tells his story with honesty, warmth and style, and the often wry wit of his home-place. This tenderly written testament of one Liberties boy builds into a vivid and heart-warming picture of his own extended family as part of a proud community and its all-but-vanished way of life.
