A Cage Called Hope

Hoping till it hurts and beyond 

Shelley Murphy, Counsellor, Psychotherapist - student of life asks the following.

Are you living your life believing the quality of your relationships, beliefs about yourself and your life in general is a result of your conscious choices?

Are you convinced the reason that you are not getting to where you want to be in your relationships, careers and personal goals is because you need to try harder?

Are you waking each day with a heart full of hope and each night putting your head on the pillow desperate to know why nothing has changed?

Are you ready to identify and shed those self limiting core beliefs so you can become the person you want to be; not the person you were programmed to be?

The information in this book changed my life.

It worked for me and it can work for you.

Within is the key to release you from A Cage Called Hope.

  • About the Author

    About the Author

    Shelley has worked as a therapist in private practice since 2008. Leaving the corporate life to pursue what “makes her heart sing”. This lead to realising the life time dream of going to University. During this time of study, Shelley decided to volunteer and this lead to working with women experiencing homelessness and her employment with that organisation. Achieving a total career change at a time of life “ the experts” claim to be difficult or impossible.

    Shelley enjoyed study as much as she had expected and was successful in securing a place in the Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy programme at Adelaide University. 

    The joy of helping others to live their best life is now being shared with her partner as they provide a mobile service to clients in the Adelaide area, as well as  running sessions online for their clients interstate and overseas. There are no regrets about leaving the corporate life behind as Shelley gets to witness inspirational moments daily.

    Shelley’s motivation for writing this book is to assist people to become who they want to be not who they were programmed to be so they can realise their true potential.
