In Becoming Your Best Self: Healing through self-integration, Donna Jacobs is our guide, offering a direct and accessible way to create real change in our lives. Weaving together stories from years of clinical practice, Jacobs explores common challenges in realizing fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. With a 6-step-healing process, she provides us with the tools we need to manage our feelings, emotional responses and relationships. This book will chart our course as we free ourselves from the constraints of negative feelings and learn to adopt instead the positive responses we need. Jacobs teaches us how to shed depression, self-doubt, guilt, shame, hopelessness, anger, self-pity, grandiosity, addictions, anxiety, fear, feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, insecurity or inadequacy in exchange for feelings of safety, happiness, playfulness, enthusiasm, confidence and empowerment.
This book serves as a roadmap to becoming our best selves.

By learning the model and practising Donna’s 6-step healing process, individuals will discover the tools they need to begin healing and recovery.
