What People Are Saying About Life After Betrayal

"Life after Betrayal : A Practical Guide" by Lynda Bevan delivers on its promise. It is a no-nonsense, honest but compassionate guide to surviving all forms of betrayal, from the romantic to the parental. It is hard to believe how much useful information the author has packed into this slender tome. The book is studded with illuminating case studies and provides an excellent exposition of issues such as post-traumatic emotional responses, pre-trauma expectations, setting boundaries, forgiveness and acceptance, and the do's and don'ts of moving forward. A gem."

--Sam Vaknin, author of "Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited"

Meet the Author

Lynda Bevan lives in a picturesque village in South Wales, United Kingdom. She is 59 years of age, married for the third time, with three (adult) children. During her teens and early twenties, she pursued and enjoyed acting and taught drama
at local Youth Centers.

Her 22-year career has involved working in the area of mental health, with the two major care agencies in the UK, Social Services and the National Health Service.
After the birth of her third child, and with her second marriage ending, she became employed by Social Services and climbed through the ranks to senior management level with some speed. During her career with Social Services, she developed a passion for counseling and psychotherapy and worked extensively
with mental health patients within the organization, setting up counseling projects in Healthcare Centers. The task was to tackle the issue of doctors who inappropriately referred patients to Psychiatric Hospitals for therapy when they
had experienced events that arise in normal everyday life, e.g., divorce, anxiety, depression, bereavement, stress, loss of role. It was during this time that she became involved in marital/relationship counseling and, coincidentally, was experiencing difficulties within her own relationship. The experience of working in this environment, and her own relationship issues, enabled Lynda to be innovative; creating methods of coping and developing strategies that enabled her
and her patients to live within their problematic relationships.

These strategies were devised and offered to patients who had clearly identified that they did not want to separate or proceed with the divorce process.
After taking early retirement from Social Services, she became employed by the National Health Service as a Counselor in the Primary Healthcare Setting. During this period in her career, she began using the strategies she had developed
with patients who were referred for relationship counseling and who did not want to end their partnership/marriage. These strategies have been used extensively
over a ten-year period with impressive results.

Lynda is presently employed as a Manager of a charity that supports people who are HIV positive. She is also the Resident Relationship Counselor on Swansea Sound Radio.

    Not a Book You Want, But One You Need if Betrayal is the Issue

    Ordering this book is not something anyone wishes they have to do, but Lynda Bevan knows how to lay it all out straight for those who have been betrayed. In what might be the worst period of your life, she provides clear, doable and reasonable steps to move forward -- a very difficult thing for victims. She speaks straight English, no pycho-babble. Read the book, highlight what resonates, put it away and pull it out if those familiar feelings are beginning to return. Thanks Lynda for addressing a horrible situation with care and compassions.
