“I find this book to be one of, if not THE most powerful mental health manuals I have ever read, professionally and personally! Oh, how I wished I had discovered it long before I retired. It does not seem to waste words. It is dynamic in its simplicity. It should be studied by every living human body that must carry a fragile human soul for a lifetime.”

“Lori Gosselin’s book drew me in from the very beginning. I easily related to her personal stories from childhood and the hurts she so openly shared.”

“An absolute pleasure to read!”
Is this just another self-help manual?
“What is really great about this little book is that she has brought the reader along for the ride and in the process has put together a doable set of steps that anyone can do and follow to their own happy place.”
“And much to my surprise (as I was taking notes while reading), the book included a series of tools that outline this healing system.”
“What Gosselin does so well in her book is to take the most recent neuroscience research confirming that the brain is capable of change, tell us how she changed her own brain circuits, and then simply explains how the reader can too.”
“Taking Gosselin’s journey with her as she discovers why she is unhappy, or always feels second-best, and then dramatically changes her life by processing her own feelings, is very inspirational and can guide anyone along the same beautiful path.”
“The narrative of her personal path to peace is engaging and I am sure a good starting point for others wanting to reach that destination too. Haven’t had much exposure to this type of literature and I’m happy to have encountered it.”
“It gives an unusual formula for resolving and discovering unpleasant feelings.”
“What I love about the book is that Lori not only explains how she stripped away layers of self-harming patterns, she offers concrete methods that enable anyone to do it.”
“Unlike many other personal development works, Lori Gosselin’s The Happy Place is an actual case study of her own life rather than an aggregate sum of published self-help techniques.”
“Lori Gosselin shares with her readers a comprehensive and very achievable formula for finding our “Happy Place”.
“Lori not only shares the wisdom of her life, she ties it all together with practical application at the end giving the reader an even greater gift!”
“Not only does Lori tell a compelling tale of “lost and found”, but she gives a clear synopsis and provides tools that you can use to elevate your life to your happiest place.”
“As a healer, I really enjoyed Lori Gosselin’s new book which condensed and distilled useful elements from multiple experiential, philosophical and psychological angles into an individualized healing tool.”
What does the book do for you?
“She then teaches us how to find peace, by letting go of the past and understanding the effect we have on others. If you want inner peace, this is a must read.”
“The step by step discovery process is so simple and practical but makes so much sense. I look forward to reading again and using the strategies she has outlined for understanding what causes these feelings I have in certain situations and how to address them.”
“The author’s story helped me to identify my own wounding and see where I was still holding onto false beliefs that didn’t serve me in my life. Her directions for the method of ridding ourselves of false beliefs were clear and simple to follow.”
“This book has given me much to think about.”
“I can’t wait to start putting the 4 steps into action, and uncovering more about myself than I knew was even there.”
“Lori beautifully speaks truths to the heart that sparks the flame of desire to let go of the past and live a life of joy and of confidence and of peace. She even provides the path that leads to it, one step at a time.”
“This book is an engaging exploration of how to get ‘unstuck’ from old patterns that keep us from experiencing life with more joy and happiness.”
“Lori Gosselin brings us into her life and walks us through the reasons we behave the way we do. She then teaches us how to find peace, by letting go of the past and understanding the effect we have on others. If you want inner peace, this is a must read.”
