We all have a story about coming to terms with change, whether this is transgender reassignment, separation, loss, illness, disability or living through another trauma. As we live through our story we do the best we can with the strategies we have at our disposal. Sometimes these are not enough and we have to search long and hard to find alternatives.

This is Cath’s story of how, for many years, she fought against her father’s transgender reassignment. Cath shares her story with you, opens up her heart to show the conflicts she finally managed to conquer. She also shares the strategies she ultimately used and teaches today as a lifestyle change and stress relief life coach.

This book is a very open and honest account about finding your way to be heard so that you can make sense of the confusion in your head, re-adjust your ‘normal’ and continue with your life. It demonstrates that what you appear to be seeing on the outside does not necessarily harmonise with what is churning away on the inside.

Some families are able to re-adjust their ‘normal’ together but others need to change their ‘normal’ to such an extent that they have to go their separate ways. We all reason and manipulate our thought processes in different ways, then build strategies that support our beliefs and values so that we can continue with live to be as near ‘normal’ as we can make it.
