About the Author

Welcome! I'm so excited that my book How to Like Yourself is now available and has been released into the world, published by New Harbinger! It is a short, to-the-point, entertaining read that focuses on your relationship with the most important person in your life – you! I had a blast writing it and hope you get something out of it that can help you be whoever you want to be.

Why did I write this book? I began trying to put together some extra reading for students that I worked with in counselling as I tried to find a good book to refer them to. But as I was looking for a book on how to like yourself, I noticed something missing in the current self-help book selection – all the books that talk about this kind of stuff talked about LOVE. That's a big step to take when starting off any relationship. How to Like Yourself starts off where YOU start – at the beginning. Everyone knows that “like” comes before “love!” So I kept writing, and it eventually turned into a book, and I hope it helps people bridge the gap as they learn more about their relationship with themselves. As you read through it, you will learn about many of the most commonly misunderstood concepts in our modern world: forgiveness, confidence, rejection, and more. These building blocks are the keys to moving onward and upwards in your life. This is the first step in your journey to being who you’ve always wanted to be.

Besides writing, in my spare time I love spending time with my golden retriever/lab mix, Darwin. We rescued him as a pup, and he’s such a great dog. We also just rescued a sister pup for him, an Australian Shepherd and Keeshond mix who joined us at 3 months old in May 2016! Now, when I say "we resuced," I mean my husband Andrew and I. Andrew and I were married in the summer of 2013. He’s an amazing guy :) We met in high school and now live together near Waterdown, Ontario. I also spend time at the barn with my horse, Sunny, whenever I get a chance. On weekends and evenings, I love hanging out with friends and family, particularly when it involves sushi or nachos. I am also a mental health counsellor at the University of Guelph by day, and I previously worked as a counsellor at Sheridan College. I have a private practice for counselling, psychotherapy, and life coaching in Waterdown, Ontario, which you can learn more about here. I also wrote a second book (yay!), and look forward to getting it out there in the future.

I’m so glad you stopped by this page and I would love to hear more from you! Like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram, or email me at cherylmbradshaw@gmail.com.

Cheers,
