Liv­ing a life of self love in new book

Napier Courier - - News -

Bhavna Na­gar started her own busi­ness, Alive! Psy­chol­ogy, named for her passion for life.

A clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist, Bhavna re­alised that for many years of her life, she did not like her­self and treated her­self badly.

Over the last 15 years she says she has learnt how to love her­self, and she is keen to share her ex­pe­ri­ences for the ben­e­fit of oth­ers.

In her new book, Self Love: The First Step, Bhavna shares her thoughts and ex­per­tise.

“Af­ter de­vel­op­ing and shar­ing the self-love ap­proach with clients and see­ing the easy trans­for­ma­tion in them, I de­cided that mak­ing this avail­able to the pub­lic would be my of­fer­ing and a way of sup­port­ing peo­ple who would not nec­es­sar­ily come to see me in ther­apy or on re­treats.

“Books have the power to trans­form lives, and my hope is that my book will do that for peo­ple.”

Bhavna sees many clients who feel that they have ev­ery­thing they need in life but who still are not fully en­gag­ing with it and are de­pressed or anx­ious. I want peo­ple to be hap­pier, feel more alive, con­nected, real.

“De­pres­sion and anx­i­ety can be be­cause of our neg­a­tive re­la­tion­ship with our­selves.

“Learn­ing how to con­nect with our hearts and love our­selves frees us from these feel­ings be­cause we feel that we al­ways have our best friend sup­port­ing and guid­ing us.”

In her Napier clinic, Bhavna is a mind­ful­ness prac­ti­tioner and is pas­sion­ate about shar­ing her sense of well­be­ing with oth­ers.

“My love for life, my joy, hap­pi­ness and sense of peace all come from mind­ful­ness and self-love.

“My goal is to make this con­ta­gious and spread it to oth­ers,” she says.

“The book is a way for me to get the mes­sage out there and re­ally make a dif­fer­ence.”

Bhavna will be launch­ing her book, Self Love: The First Step at War­dini Books, 44 Hast­ings Street Napier, at 4pm on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 8.

All are wel­come to come and take the first step, she says.

Bhavna Na­gar will be launch­ing her book next week­end.
