Janice Gaunt has highlighted the importance of acceptance and self-forgiveness in her first book, The Shame Game. This groundbreaking work will revolutionize how we look at shame and will help readers become the productive, self-accepting, balanced people they are meant to be.
Janice's voice throughout the book is like that of a trusted friend, someone in the trenches with you, someone who's been there. She speaks with practical wisdom, clinical wisdom… Her message is clear and one that I fully endorse.
In a simple, straightforward prose, Janice takes a subject none of us like to talk about and gently pushes us to open up, face the truth, and get our lives moving again - this time in the right direction. It's a remarkable performance.
This is one of the most useful self-help books I have ever encountered. This beautifully written, eye-opening book brought me to tears. In The Shame Game, Janice Sterling Gaunt gives us a hopeful guide for releasing shame and flourishing in life. Filled with practical tools, insightful examples, and transforming exercises, this book is a must-read on one's healing journey. Rich in information, heart, and hope, Gaunt will guide you as you move through shame in order to unveil the you that you were meant to be.
