“Volcanoes is searingly honest... a lucid probe into the devastating effects of childhood trauma. But it’s more than just an analysis - Volcanoes has a building-block process for recovery. It’s a must-read for any survivor battling with rage.”

Rod Phillips, Chairman of the Board Advocates for Survivors of Child Abuse

“This is an informative and comprehensive text for those who have suffered severe trauma and for those professionals in the healing sector. Using clear, detailed, and precise language, Lindsey takes us on a thorough and exhaustive analysis covering all aspects of the human journey through healing and back to wholeness.”

Hetty Johnson, Founder and Director of Bravehearts Inc.

“I enjoyed Reading this book very much. It integrates Tomkin’s affect theory into trauma work very nicely.”

Gershen Kaufman, PhD. Author of The Psychology of Shame: The Power of Caring.

“I found the group brilliant. It opened doorways to deal safely with emotional issue from the past. I was also able to pass on the skills to other survivors - with astonishing results.”

Janelle Sansom, Group Participant and Support Counsellor.


Lindsey Fairfield holds a PhD and had a successful career in research astronomy despite many nervous breakdowns. Over the years, the breakdowns lead to sampling many different forms of therapy including five years of intensive psychiatry. While all that therapy led to recovery, she was dissatisfied with the length and painfulness of the process. Obtaining a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, she set out to pass on to other survivors – through groups and individual counselling – the skills that she found to be of greatest assistance. This book sets that learning down in writing.
