Ten questions to ask yourself, right now:
* Do you have a sense that something is wrong, but you don't know what it is?
* Do you have a feeling that you are hollow inside, that you are empty or have a void within?
* Do you react badly to rejection?
* Do you often feel sad, unhappy or down for no obvious reason?
* Would you describe yourself as highly sensitive?
* Do you have problems with relationships and intimacy?
* Do you engage in addictive behaviour - alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping, food, sex, work, exercise?
* Do you have low self-esteem or self-worth - are you not 'good enough'?
* Do you have a sense of being numb to your feelings?
* Do you rarely experience true joy and happiness?

If you have answered 'yes' to most of these questions, there is a strong chance you have experienced emotional neglect or trauma as a child. An emotionally neglected child may struggle to form strong and secure attachments as an adult. They may feel hollow or empty, worthless (or overly important), judge themselves harshly and struggle with addictive tendencies - drinking, eating or exercising too much, for example. If this describes you, Heal Your Inner Child will change your life and give you back the love, compassion and authenticity you needed as a child, and deserve as an adult.

Fomer heavy drinker turned sobriety coach Simon Chapple is - like you - a survivor of childhood trauma. His unique brand of straight-talking, practical yet reflective and relatable advice has helped thousands of people quit drinking, and he can help you now to move on from childhood emotional neglect to a place of happiness free from past trauma. How to Heal Your Inner Child is a stepped and safe approach to confronting your past, with space for reflective and supportive strategies that will help you to foster self-compassion and break free from the destructive behaviours that have blighted your life. Clinically endorsed and verified by a psychotherapist, this deeply personal, unflinchingly honest exploration is designed to unlock your own epiphany and support you as you journey to a happier, less troubled and more authentic self.

Simon Chapple is an author, speaker and coach. For over two decades he was the classic example of a heavy daily 'at home' drinker. Enduring daily hangovers, engaging in regretful behaviour, suffering from anxiety and lacking energy and motivation as a result of his inability to stop drinking. Despite this he built a successful business, ran marathons and tried his best to be a father and a husband. But something was lacking in his life. He knew that change needed to happen. When Simon managed to quit alcohol, joy flowed back into his life for the first time since he was a child. His experience was so profound that it became his mission to raise awareness about the dangers of alcohol and to spread the word about the huge benefits that an alcohol-free life can bring. You can read about his experience and discover how he became sober in the books The Sober Survival Guide and How to Quit Alcohol in 50 Days. As he explored the roots of his addiction, Simon realised that his childhood trauma and emotional neglect had impacted him as an adult, and set about overcoming it. His experience of change was so powerful, he has chosen to share what he learned in his book How to Heal Your Inner Child. As a Life Coach and Certified Sobriety Coach, and the founder of Be Sober - one of the largest quit drinking communities in the world - Simon has worked with thousands of people from all over the world, helping them make a lasting change to the way that alcohol features in their lives. He advocates quitting alcohol as a positive experience and an empowered life-choice, and rejects the outdated labels of 'recovery' and 'alcoholic' that keep many people stuck for the rest of their lives. Instead, he works with his clients to help them find true happiness in sobriety, and freedom from CEN and childhood trauma, by making choices that they feel passionate about.
