Cecile Barral is the mother of three adult children, a grandmother, a gardener, a bush lover and a journal keeper. She is a psychotherapist with over 35 years of experience specialising in complex developmental trauma and has a special interest in the use of writing to help process such traumas. Cecile is very actively involved in ANZAP (Australia and New Zealand Association of Psychotherapy), being on its teaching faculty and management committee. Oceane Campbell is Cecile's third child and frequently wonders how Cecile survived living in a tent for a year with three children under three. Oceane and her wife have three children on their own, and Oceane is a proud and passionate midwife. She has published a number of midwifery articles and presented at many midwifery conferences. Before becoming a midwife, Oceane completed a psychology degree with honours and dabbled in less interesting jobs in corporate advisory and policy writing.
'Oceane and Cecile have done something of huge importance by breaking the silence on suicide in this extraordinary and beautifully written book.' - Professor Pat McGorry AO
