Overview

How often have you searched for happiness and contentment via relationships, success and recognition? These are all aspects of life that many of us chase in the pursuit of happiness.

Underpinned by Boundary Theory, I-Power illustrates why these facets of life are actually at the heart of why we end up experiencing unhappiness and discontent.

Author George Dieter will help you approach life with a boundary focus, allowing you to discover that nobody can 'make' us feel or do anything; we alone are responsible for how we feel.

I-Power is an essential read for anyone looking to live a calmer, less stressful life without interpersonal conflict or emotional angst and is an invaluable resource for psychologists, counsellors and life coaches.
