There is Nothing to Fix

Suzanne Jones has helped thousands of participants with her life-changing somatic healing program and has put the knowledge into the last self-help book you will ever need. She leads you on a journey back to your authentic self by guiding you through a personal exploration of growth, and resilience. There is Nothing to Fix is The Power of Now meets the #metoo movement. Interspersed with case studies and stories of real people—stories you can connect with—Jones illustrates the power of her approach to create innate healing and hope.

 

Jones begins where most teachings on self-compassion, emotional regulation, and healthy relationships end—by going to the source of lasting change—the body. This book provides a practical lens through which readers can understand their responses and emotions while offering step by step guidance for changing these responses, all with an emphasis on compassion and empowerment. Through this revolutionary approach you will be able to experience true freedom from the constant urge to fix yourself from the outside. Jones teaches you everyday tools to build self-confidence, self-compassion, and most importantly, self-acceptance—tools that have been within you all along.

 

EARLY READER TESTIMONIALS

The insights and exercises in There is Nothing to Fix have been incredibly helpful to me as I navigate my way through an emotionally abusive relationship. I am now able to put some space and breath between the moment when I am dealt a biting, sarcastic comment, criticism, or blame; and my response to it. Because I can now identify the feelings in my body and recognize them as outdated survival instincts, I’m able to make effective, empowered choices instead of staying trapped in a vicious cycle of guilt, confusion, resentment, and reactivity. I can honesty feel my brain slowly rewiring.

THERE is NOTHING to FIX

“From the beginning to end Sue Jones captures the essences of how our minds and bodies hold on to trauma. She does so in a way that notices the readers’ younger selves as survivors and adapters, as brilliant children making it through their circumstances.
     Sue offers a healing process for adult readers whose child selves are lingering around, still telling us what to do to survive. Sue has created a way to ensure the healing process is both kind and tangible.
The exercises laid out in Theres Is Nothing to Fix are approachable and concrete, while carrying so much depth and hope in their completion.
     Sue does an incredible job explaining both the brain and the body in a way that remains easy to digest as a reader and informative as a clinician. I feel so lucky to have read through this book and am absolutely certain I will move forward a better helper to my clients knowing all this book has taught me.”

Robyn Isman, LICSW

"As soon as I read the first few pages, faces of former clients started to appear in my mind. If I could, I would send them all copies of There is Nothing to Fix. Sue taps right into all the places trauma hides and explains the impact with kindness and empathy. Her honesty about her own story and her ability to trace the threads of pain and trauma from her childhood to her toxic marriage is brave and bold. I have highlighted all the moments I want to remember and incorporate into my practice and into my own life. The exercises and activities are incredibly doable and helpful.

This book is one of the most hopeful I have read in a long time. Filled with applicable examples of real life people who have benefited from Sue’s wisdom and practice, it’s not written for clinicians! This is a book anyone  could read and everyone should read. I’m hard pressed to think of someone who wouldn’t benefit in some way from all that is held in these pages. There is Nothing to Fix is an opportunity to look at things differently, a warm and heart full invitation to understanding and change."


Beth Niernberg, LMHC

“To say that this book changed my life is not an exaggeration. Before I read it and did the simple but powerful exercises inside it, I felt powerless and helpless.

     When this book fell into my hands I began to see how all of my reactions were actually outdated survival instincts. I learned how to reassure myself that I was safe and okay, despite the old messages of “danger” that I had been feeling from the sensations in my body. I unlocked the power of my breath to create space for myself to make better choices, and I slowly began to realize that I wasn’t crazy or damaged or at fault.

     I’m still navigating the fears and frustrations of being in an emotionally abusive relationship, and there are days when it still feels like an uphill battle. But I am actually feeling my brain rewire as I move away from these outdated messages and patterns and toward personal agency and empowerment.”



Anonymous Male Reader

"This book is an amazing distillation of all the trauma research that’s out there, and it perfectly highlights how trauma is stored in the body. The real-life examples explain how coping skills are highly adaptive and there is hope for doing things differently and truly loving yourself.


This book has helped me personally and in my psychotherapy practice; it’s a revelation!"

Alex Murray-Golay, LMHC

This is one of the best books on trauma ever written - and it’s much more than that. Fast-paced, grounded in science, full of practical suggestions, and always hopeful, it is about living with courage and joy no matter what. Sue Jones draws on her personal history and vast experience with body-oriented practices to offer an original and effective program that is deeply healing while bringing us home to our true nature. Comprehensive, humane, and inspiring, this is a gem of a book.

Rick Hanson, Ph.D., author of Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness

“There is nothing to fix is Suzanne Jones’ incredible first book that puts into words the transformative process that she has delivered to hundreds of grateful women internationally via her inspirational workshops.

It is fascinating to learn how Suzanne, through her own story of pain, growth and determination, came to understand and heal herself. She embraces the reader with trust and intimacy and takes us along, step-by-step, on a personal and courageous journey with a magical blend of neuroscience , compassion, and common sense.

This work is a truly original perspective that harmoniously blends ancient and modern theories from the worlds of yoga, somatic processing, and psychological development. She provides the reader with step-by-step guidelines so that we may undertake our own individual exploration into the healing that we all need, regardless of whether we come from a truly horrific past or simply the scars we all accumulate from traumas of everyday life.”

Suzanne Jones is a real-life superhero. She I met in the context of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and her efforts to develop a yoga intervention to help people affected by various forms of trauma. Her personal testimony informs a truly excellent description of the nuances of traumatic experience that become internalized in the body and spirit, and that can feed the progression of mental un-wellness. The roadmap to recovery that she describes, grounded in both science and ancient practices, is accessible and practically feasible for all people. This is a useful book.

"There is Nothing to Fix does something no other book about trauma and the human condition does, it makes tangible the tapestry we are made of, all the threads and all the colors. It allows you to hover over it and dive into it.

It encourages you to see the connections that you feel but can’t always understand.It’s in that seeing and understanding that peace can grown and that change can come.

 

I’m grateful to Sue for writing in a way that can be seen and felt and internalized. What a gift."

 

Beth Niernberg, LMHC

"Through her own journey from the pain of trauma, Suzanne Jones discovered a path to healing for herself, and developed a powerful method that speaks to the lives of all those who suffer with trauma.  

     There’s Nothing to Fix not only offers deep insights into the nature and origins of our trauma

induced suffering, but provides a practical series of exercises and tools that allow us to begin freeing ourselves from negative emotions and destructive patterns of behavior.  

     The answer lies within ourselves,quite literally, within our bodies. Just as our bodies have stored the fear and pain of our trauma for so long, so does the body then teach the mind the path to healing through the transformative practice of the TIMBo method.

     This book is a vital and important work, and I believe will greatly benefit anyone who has experienced trauma, suffered with addiction, or mental illness."

 

Joseph Ierardi

"There's Nothing To Fix offers us an opportunity to walk back through life and reconnect with our true self, finding the one thing we were searching for, unconditional love and true connection.

     This book paves the road for healing in a way that feels safe and loving. The stories shared in the book give you a birdseye view of how we sacrifice our authenticity throughout life as a way of survival. 

The journal exercises offer an opportunity for exploration into your own life and a chance to compassionately understand how you ended up being who you are today.

     Healing is a journey. This book is your companion."
