For more than 20 years, author and Inner Matrix Systems founder Joey Klein has studied a range of healing modalities, from psychology and neuroscience to martial arts and mediation. He synthesized effective elements from multiple disciplines into a single approach that he says can help others train their thoughts and feelings to discontinue destructive patterns, engage their formidable internal resources and create powerful visions for their lives.

“Each of us has our own Inner Matrix, which consists of our emotions, thought strategies and nervous system, that drives our actions, behavior, and ultimately creates our experience of life,” Klein said.

He shares his techniques and practical exercises in his new book, The Inner Matrix: Leveraging the Art & Science of Personal Mastery to Create Real Life Results.

Aimed primarily at high level executives, entrepreneurs and business leaders, The Inner Matrix contains insights of value to anyone looking to make positive changes in their lives, including:  

– A simple, practical approach to managing your emotions, thought strategies and nervous system to channel success;

– Ways to develop fulfillment, peace and inspiration;

– How to create the neurological alignment needed to achieve any desired outcome;

– Methods for designing a rich and meaningful life;

– Case studies, scientific references, expert insights;

– And much more.

Ultimately, The Inner Matrix is a comprehensive guide for realigning your emotional, mental and physical states to support the achievement of your most important personal and professional goals.

“When you master your internal state, you master your world,” Klein said. “It is just that simple.”

Her Father Tells Liza’s Story of Facing Death

It’s unusual to access a child’s mind during the magic years of childhood. It’s rarer when the child is facing her death. Liza, an ardent child with a deep love of cows and the color purple was diagnosed with leukemia at age four and died two years later in 1996. Liza was an unusually expressive child and her parents, both child psychiatrists, were uniquely oriented to appreciate the richness of a child’s mind. Through writing this book, Liza’s father strove to reveal the inner world of a child’s mind–and a parent’s mind–as few other books can. At its center, this is the story of a child’s psyche growing and striving to understand all she could of her experience, and of a small family coping with life’s biggest challenges. It is a story of love’s power to help a family cope and endure despite loss, and to grow, through darkness, back toward a full embrace of life. Through the process, the family emerges transformed, awed by the capacities of this child.

How to Get Your Sh*t Together:
Informal, Practical New Book
Whips Readers’ Lives into Shape
– Finally!

Written by renowned coach, Sue Wright, ‘How to Get Your Sh*t Together: The no-nonsense, easy-to-follow brain training guide’ reaches out to readers in an actionable yet informal way, to help them dramatically improve almost all areas of life. From self-esteem and confidence to emotional resilience and everything in between, Wright’s years of experience now produce what is likely the most accessible and fun self-help book on the market. One critic wrote, “This book has literally changed my life and the way I deal with problems. I have learnt to be more positive and to give myself a break. I would highly recommend!”

 If lockdown has proven something, it’s how much the average person has a desire to change. But with motivation and mental health at an all-time low, people need an unconventional, friendly yet wildly realistic kick in the pants.

It’s now here, thanks to coach Sue Wright and her new book, ‘How to Get Your Sh*t Together: The no-nonsense, easy-to-follow brain training guide’.

Prepare for a friendly helping hand that calls on the latest techniques and classic proven methods to set anyone’s life on a positive new course.


Have you ever found yourself thinking you really need to sort your life out, but have no idea where to start? Perhaps all the ‘stuff’ going on in your head is making you feel like your brain is about to implode? Maybe you find yourself getting in a grump with yourself, other people, and/or inanimate objects for no reason. All clear signs that you need to get your sh*t together!

In this book I help you – with no frills, flounce or fancy-pants terminology – figure out where you are right now, where you want to be and how you are going to get there. We explore brain training methods along the way that are simple, yet effective. We need to understand how our minds work so we can train them to behave when life gets tricky.

Throughout the book I use a whole range of effective and popular brain training methods. They include:
Life coaching
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Positive Psychology
Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Resilience
Law of Attraction
Life Purpose Coaching
Vision Boards
Mantras & Affirmations
Energy Anatomy
Chakras & Meridians
and a whole load more!

So, although the title may be flippant and fun, the contents of this book will profoundly change your life (for the better obviously). I help you to go from wallowing around in a confused funk to setting you off on an exciting new adventure, armed with the skills you need to enjoy the journey and deal with the bumps along the way.

“I take confused readers, wherever they are in life, and help them craft a clear-cut path toward achieving their goals sustainably, without sacrificing what currently makes their life great,” explains the author. “I call on the latest information and on-trend methodologies, and only focus on what’s proven to work. There’s no pseudo-science or fads, here!”

Continuing, “It’s vital I crafted something informal, while also making sure I get across the sheer breadth and diversity of experience I have as a coach. This volume is the culmination of a career spent changing the lives of thousands, and I’m so proud to now be offering it in a format so accessible and easy to deploy.”

Reviews have been extremely positive. CW writes, “I found this to be a really accessible book. I was drawn in by the welcoming, encouraging and approachable style that made me feel like she’s in the room with me. I found the tasks clear and easy to follow and implement. Being honest with myself wasn’t easy, but I felt that the author was there supporting me throughout. The techniques I’ve learned in this book will stick with me for life.”

Another reader adds, “I found this book gave you the tools to evaluate your life and change it for the better. You don’t have to bumble through life or take the straight path. You do have control.”

About the author, in her own words:

AvatarI am a coach, a pretty good one too according to my lovely clients. What makes me really happy is to help you to become the best version of yourself, and to sustain it. I do that either with my brain training or with my biomechanics and Pilates coaching or often with a bit of both. I am not a normal coach, I can’t be faffed sitting in an office so I work with clients outside or remotely. I don’t do ‘wafty’ either, something probably very obvious from the title of one of my books!

So, how did I become a Life Coach? I’d spent years developing Equestrian Pilates and although it is a physical activity, it became clear that the brain can have a huge impact on the body. Also, for a long time I was not a very happy, nor confident, person. Not being confident made me miserable so I set off on a mission to change that. I dabbled in Sports Psychology but the focus was often on things that had happened in the past. You cannot go back and change things so I decided to focus more on the here and now, and the future too.

As a serial studier, I added a huge range of qualifications to my already extensive list including:
Life Coach
Positive Psychology
Law of Attraction
Emotional Intelligence
Life Purpose Coach
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

My books are easy to read, I stay away from fancy-pants language and terminology – for goodness sakes, you want to read a book not have to stop and google what something means every five minutes.

In my personal life I am an animal lover and have horses and dogs…which is probably why I do a lot of remote work with clients so that they don’t have to see/smell how filthy I am 99% of the day! But, it makes me happy and that is what life is all about.

Hope that was helpful, look forward to sharing more of my work with you soon.

Why Did She Jump? by Joan Childs

Turning Personal Tragedy Into Inspiration For
Others To Learn How To Find Healing And Peace

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported the incidence of suicide is up by 24% since 1999.

A mother of five and grandmother to nine, married and divorced four times, and a clinical social worker in private practice for nearly forty years, Joan Childs thought she had experienced or seen it all. But nothing could have prepared her for the death of her beautiful daughter, Pam.  A brilliant psychotherapist, Pam battled constantly with Bipolar Disorder until one fateful summer day in 1998 when her demons overwhelmed her, she plunged to her death from a 15th floor balcony. Even with their combined credentials and medical knowledge, Pam still could not be saved. She became the driving force behind Joan Childs’ latest book, Why Did She Jump? (HCI Books), and brings hope to anyone struggling with grief from the loss of a child or loved one to mental illness, that there is hope for better tomorrows.

Fierce and tender, Joan’s compelling storytelling gives us an insightful yet sensitive look at her daughter’s life dealing with Bipolar Disorder. Peeling back the layers of pain and despair, Joan takes readers through the dark days of grief and guilt she felt both as a mother and as a frustrated professional who doesn’t understand why more hasn’t been done about this disease. With brutal honesty, Joan recalls how the lives of her entire family became entwined with her daughter’s illness as they watched her sink deeper into a place where no one could reach her. It is a powerful story of courage, hope, acceptance, and finally, forgiveness. Now, Joan reflects on her daughter’s many accomplishments, in spite of her illness, and sees them as Pam’s legacy to the world.

In an earlier book, The Myth of the Maiden: On Being a Woman, the author looks at the evolution of women from helpless maidens to dragon-slayers. Both books are excellent resources for personal growth and development after life changes and loss. In spite of many personal losses, Joan ‘walks the talk;’ she lives life to its fullest and maintains a level of energy and passion at age 76 that would put a 40-year-old to shame! A strikingly beautiful woman and energetic and inspiring speaker, Joan ignites the passion in others to find their own path to courage, healing and hope after the heartbreak and struggle of losing a loved one/child to suicide or any other cause of death.

Joan’s television series, Solutions, was dedicated to the memory of her daughter Pamela, and offered information and resources for anyone suffering from mental and mood disorders.  She provides lectures, workshops and seminars dedicated to her profession of mental health and women’s issues and is a spokesperson for bipolar disorder and suicide.

Excerpts from five-star reviews on

“… I lost my 23 year old daughter Kaitlyn to suicide… she was just starting her 3rd year of medical school… I have come to know (Joan’s) daughter through her eyes and memories and she was a beautiful person and was so loved. Her book has truly touched my heart.”

“… A true story of how Pamela, a young, beautiful psychotherapist, lived with a chronic debilitating mental illness and how her family got caught up in the whirlwind. It is also a story of how the mental health system continually failed her in not being able to provide her with any kind of useful assistance… This is a book for anyone who is contemplating a career in the health care field to make them aware of the challenges ahead.”

“This book should be read by anyone who’s lost a loved one due to mental illness and/or suicide. As a mother, I can’t imagine the pain Joan must have felt after losing her beautiful daughter. Her strength is inspiring.”

“Readers will learn more about Bipolar I Disorder, which thankfully, not every family has to deal with, but also about the grieving process, which we do all deal with. Despite being a heart-breaking story about illness, death and grief, Joan skillfully leaves you feeling better and actually hopeful at the end.”
