“When I read Julie Hickton’s book, The Tree of Resilience, I was reminded of positive psychologist Ann Masten’s description of human resilience as ‘ordinary magic’. This is a unique book for the way it captures the everyday struggles of ordinary women like you and me, providing a very moving account of their resilience in the face of sometimes overwhelming challenge, and their ability to bounce back from adversities which are no less poignant for being familiar.
Julie Hickton tells their stories in a richly detailed and very personal narrative woven together with her trademark humour, honesty and empathy. She uses her remarkable gifts as an experienced Executive and Leadership Coach and her training in NLP, to share insights on the nature of human resilience and what it means in practice, describing how a combination of techniques and strategies drawn from coaching, NLP and positive psychology can be applied to help us overcome adversity and succeed in life.
This book will make you reflect anew on your own life experiences, and feel more confident, resourceful and uplifted as a result.”
