Editorial Reviews


"A wonderful book." —Gillian Anderson, actress, activist and mother

Five Deep Breaths is a lifeline for parents. Wouldn't it be great if family life was calm, easy and loving? But anyone who has dealt with toddlers or teenagers, (or any child on a stroppy day), knows how hard it can be. In this kind, practical book, Genevieve von Lob draws on a lifetime of personal and professional experience. She teaches deceptively simple techniques, which can bring about profound changes. Tools as simple as breathing can reconnect you with your intuition, alleviate stress and dissolve old patterns. This is a great book that champions confidence, kindness and compassion." —Georgia Coleridge, author, healer and mother

"I absolutely loved this book. The author really ‘gets’ the challenges of modern parenting and through her extensive contact with parents and hearing first-hand about their experiences, for the first time I really felt understood. I am going to treasure this book and keep it by my side, so I can dip into it any time I am feeling overwhelmed or stressed. It makes you feel like you suddenly have a wise friend helping you along this difficult parenting journey, full of useful, practical tips. This book is about the power of mindfulness and self-awareness, and it’s so much more than that; it shows you how to develop a deeper connection with yourself and your child – and leads you both on the path to resilience." —Josie Jacobs, positive psychologist and mother

"The messages and learnings inside are helpful for any parent who feels held back by feelings of inadequacy, stress and anxiety . . . there were sections which resonated with me immediately, and I can’t believe they won’t also with a great number of mums and dads out there, who find themselves struggling a little bit. [This] step-by-step guide navigates the demands of being a parent alongside the demands you put on yourself – and those of others – and coming out of it feeling like you’re on top, instead of always fighting a rearguard action." —Holly Kirkwood,
