Hot of the press! Self-help book for women who have had experiences of abuse in their life. Ursula uses Casey's story to explain her powerful 5 Step Shark Cage Framework, which has helped thousands of women to build a better life for themselves. Casey feels trapped in her relationship with controlling and abusive partner. Desperate for help to sort through her conflicting feelings, she finds herself talking to a counsellor.
As she unpacks her life story, Casey feels despair and shame about the many times she has been a target of abuse by men who were meant to love and protect her:
‘Is there something wrong with me? Do I have a sign on my forehead that says ‘come and abuse me’?’
HOW TO SPOT A SHARK answers these heartfelt questions, and helps you to understand past and present experiences of abuse in a way that is empowering and hopeful.
Join Casey on her journey away from control and abuse towards a stronger sense of self, firmly grounded in her right to safe and respectful relationships.
