About the Author

Dr Ray Owen is a clinical psychologist working in cancer and palliative care for the NHS in Herefordshire, UK. He has worked in hospital, community and hospice settings for the past 20 years


"Dr Ray Owen is a clinical psychologist working in cancer and palliative care, and with two decades of experience he's very well placed to reflect upon our varied responses to a major life crisis. Using the metaphor of a storm, he takes us (admirably thoroughly) through the stages of preparing for the arrival of a major life crisis, its passing through, and dealing with its aftermath." - Julia Bueno, The Independent Practitioner, Autumn 2011 "At some point all of us will face a life crisis. This pragmatic yet warm-hearted book helps us to recognise that it is not so much a question of avoiding this truth, nor of living in dread of difficulty, but a question of discovering how we can face each and every moment of our lives (including the desperate ones) with honesty and with a willingness to work with our experience as it is rather than as we would like it to be. Ray Owen offers us a pragmatic tool kit that is highly relevant to the process of working with the storms of our lives and our everyday life experience with a greater degree of awareness, compassion and understanding." - Rebecca Crane, Bangor University, UK "I would recommend this book to everyone interested in learning from a highly experienced palliative care clinician who has himself learnt from many people making final journeys -- still finding routes through that are filled with laughter, hope and resilience." - Julie Stokes OBE -- Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, Founder of Winston's Wish
