Editorial Reviews

Reader Views - Mary Greenwood
"Life after Your Lover Walks Out" is a well-written book focusing on the emotional and practical issues that arise when your lover moves on. Bevan writes with empathy for the reader. Her approach is very personal; she is like your best friend who does not judge you and nudges you to go to the next step in your life and recovery.

I highly recommend "Life after A Lover Walks Out" to anyone going through a major relationship upheaval.
Vaknin - Sam Vaknin
Regrettably, most self-help literature is bloated, narcissistic, and off-topic. Not so this gem of a booklet. At 80 pages it is manageable even by the most distracted and desperate reader.

Replete with bullet lists and steps, it is eminently practical but also compassionate and conversational.

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 experi┬Čencing 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.

    A Guide For Moving On

    A divorce or a break up from a long relationship is hard no matter which side of the break up you fall on. It can be devastating. How do you pick up the pieces of your life and move on? How do you deal with the emotional distress? How do you accept that your relationship is over? This book can help. "Life After Your Lover Walks Out" is a step-by-step tool you can use to guide you through the emotional devastation caused by a break up. It will help you “move on from a negative emotional experience to a positive emotional outcome.” Lynda Bevan guides you through each step of the process, providing the reader with insights into emotions they are feeling. Each emotion is examined. Bevan’s tells why these emotions are present and shows the reader how to deal with them and move past them through self-examination. This book is written in a generalized way to appeal to and be able to help the widest range of people. It’s written in 10 steps that cover everything from the initial falling apart to the new you that emerges out of the break up. It’s purposefully condensed so the reader can easily find the information they need quickly and easily. That being said there are parts I wish were expanded on. I’m recently divorced and I found this book to be useful. It showed me that my emotions I was feeling, anger, loss, regret, are all normal. I read this book straight through but I think it would also be useful to just read each step as you are ready for it. In the About the Author, I read that Bevan is on her third marriage, so she really knows what she’s talking about because she’s been through it, twice, and she still managed to move on. I recommend this book for anyone going through a tough break up.

    Moving On: Life After Your Lover Walks Out

    Life After Your Lover Walks Out: A Practical Guide
    Author: Lynda Bevan
    Publisher: Loving Healing Press
    ISBN: 978-1-932690-26-2

    Loving Healing Press is definitely the go-to publisher for all things relationship, family, personal motivation, psychology, metapsychology, trauma intervention and self help. Life After Your Lover Walks Out is the first book in the Loving Healing Press 10 Step Empowerment Series. Like all other Loving Healing Press books, this guide does not disappoint.

    Lynda Bevan has written what may be the ultimate guide to moving forward when a long term relationship ends. Regardless of whether you or your mate instigated the breakup, you'll be left with numerous unresolved issues and feelings, which can include anger, fear, jealousy and regret, among others. How you resolve these issues is largely dependent on knowing the steps to a healthy resolution and taking these often tough steps forward. This book breaks it down for people of all walks of life and levels of experience.

    Step by step, the reader is led through a well planned and comprehensive series of processes. Realistic and practical exercises take the reader through an introspective process, leading from the negative impact of a breakup to figuring out what your expectations really are, what is healthiest for you, and what your real emotions are telling you. The reader will understand what motivates us into healthy/unhealthy relationships, making expectations realistic and giving a sense of closure to the terminated relationship.

    Purposely written in a compact style, the book can easily be read from cover to cover in just a couple of hours. It has a workable, non-overwhelming style that can be used by anyone, and would make a great therapeutic tool in any counseling practice. Highly recommended.
