Want some inspiration? Read my book - "A Daily Dose of Strength" by Jayne Briggs

"A Daily Dose of Strength" by Jayne Briggs

We all have to face challenges in life at some point or other, whether it be a loss, bereavement or personal/family/relationship issue?  I experienced an extremely tough year back in 2009 when I lost both my husband and my mother within 7 days of one another!  This inspired me to write a book based not only on my own personal experience of life, but also from what I had learned from some of the clients I had had the prvilege to work with.  As a way of raising funds for the June Hancock Mesothelioma Research Fund, I felt I needed to do something to support this charity.  Having lost my dear husband to this terrible disease, I became aware of how many people out there who had suffered a similar tragic loss?  Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer, caused by being exposed to Asbestos.  Therefore, men and women who have worked in industry, most of their lives and some teachers too who have worked in Schools where Asbestos was used in the building materials, have found themselves victims of this terrible disease.  Therefore, if you would like to purchase a copy, the price is just £10.00 plus p&p.  I still have some copies available, after which, when they have all been sold, I will be presenting the proceeds of this lovely book to the June Hancock Mesothelioma Research Fund.  The aim of the fund is to invest as much money into research so that a cure can be found for this terrible disease. Contact me via email at or via my contact form on this website, or you can phone me on 07886 198 293.  I hope you will consider supporting this excellent cause?  Thank you for your kind support.
