Clear communication is crucial for an efficient, functioning workplace. It fosters a collaborative environment, increases productivity, and minimizes misunderstandings that lead to costly mistakes.
When individuals can communicate effectively, they’re better able to appreciate and respect differences in others’ cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives. This allows people to learn from each other’s experiences.
The intention of this book is to show how, through a better understanding of ways of communicating, imbalance can be avoided in dealings with others.

Realizing that every town, city, and country ‘vibrates’ at a specific frequency, we start to understand why we feel comfortable in certain places and not in others.
Where we spend time while working is just as important as where we live.
Regardless of whether you have recently started working from home, or are redesigning a corporate workspace for your company, this book will assist you in controlling the Feng Shui of your environment.
Optimizing your work time, maximizing output, and increasing turnover will all become easier once you learn how to follow Feng Shui guidelines.
Home working can be a wonderful opportunity for self-realization and awareness with regards to your life, your work and even your raison d’être – your reason for being.
It can offer a unique perspective on how to live life with more intention and attention.
You could be forgiven for thinking that someone with this view is a little crazy…after all, nobody enjoys work, do they?
For both those who are newly starting to work from home and those with experience who might still be struggling, this book helps to identify one’s own needs and creates space for making changes.
Do you remember when days seemed longer, holidays stretched on forever, you slept well at night and awoke refreshed? Each day was an adventure that started with anticipation and you went to bed content.
When did all that change?
At some point in life most people’s bodies and minds tend towards a downward spiral through stress.
Mindfulness is about noticing what we are doing as we are doing it, what we are thinking as we are thinking it, and how we are feeling as we are feeling it.
Using the practical exercises in this book, you can deepen your capacity of awareness and significantly reduce stress.
A 20th Century, four-generational novella – set in Italy, Ireland, England and Spain:
The Fusciardis, who travelled from Italy to Ireland at the tail-end of the 19th Century, the Devlins living in Belfast and London from the ‘40s to the ‘90s, and the Buchanan-Trees in Spain in current time.
Spanning four generations, the stories twist and tumble around the lives and families of two estranged sisters, Isabella and Sofia Fusciardi.
Love and loss, deceit, ignorance and childhood trauma link seven stand-alone but interlinked stories; based on dark and complex aspects of human relationships within families.
The saga opens in 2007 during preparations for a London television retrospective on the life and death of Jack Devlin, world-famous artist. Before he died, Jack wrote a short poem for friends and family about his unconventional life…
“I read this without being able to stop turning the pages. Jean has a wonderful way of telling a story and there is a story in here for everyone. I wanted to know more about these characters when the book ended so I hope she is not done! Highly recommend this book on your shelf.”

“Wow! Incredibly clever and powerful, your characters practically River Dance off the page. I also love the use of analogies throughout and thought the letter from Charles was sheer poetry. I found it fascinating to observe the way that the knock on effects of domestic violence – and the fear of its victims – filtered down through the generations…. your piece about the stillbirth was extremely moving. The story also has so much magic in it when you think about how close our ties really are, and the whole Five Degrees of Separation thing…”
