Love is a wild and diverse land. Every soul needs a map. Nothing is more important to us than love, yet nothing is more painful than love gone wrong. During the course of our lives, we can develop dangerous faultlines and crevasses in our inner emotional landscapes due to past hurts, losses and disappointments. Lovelands is psychologist Dr Debra Campbell's map for traversing the treacherous terrain of love and cultivating the wisdom and self-compassion for healthy love relationships. Drawing on her own knowledge and experiences of dysfunctional love relationships throughout her life and work, Dr Campbell shows you how to become aware of your personal Lovelands so you can locate and identify your faultlines, avoid repeating negative patterns and become empowered to make different choices.

Whether you're a parent to others, a lover to another, or working on the care of your own soul, Lovelands will help you make sense of love, from birth to death, and guide you in claiming the role of the hero of your own life and sovereign of your own Lovelands.

Love explained


As I read this book, I found it to be a clarity of things I have endured yet was able not to know what it really was. This book shares all the aspects of love we experience throughout life good or negative. I like how the author took the time to break down each area of love and shares her experiences. Some of them I related with and others I feel I will encounter very soon. All-in-all this was a great education and ultimately expanded my views of love. Should you want more insight on how you feel in and out of love in all areas of your life, this is the book for you. Well written and encouraging.

Should be required reading for Men and Women.


1. The Dr. Deb "Lovelands" book should be required reading for men (and women), ... by force if necessary. 2. "Lovelands" is the best unpacking of "Love" I have read, ever. 3. I believe the unique life experience of Dr. Deb (as we all have), has led her to provide an accessible documentation of "Love" not encountered (at least by me) before, however.... 4. I think it takes an awesome, special, unique type of personal courage to share publicly such history and insights, in such emotionally charged depth, based on deep personal experiences that are shared in some considerable detail, 5. ... with the result we all love Dr. Deb all the more, I predict. 6. ....without digressing into self pity, aggression and revenge. 7. ... "Everything built stronger from our scars" (page 213). 8. Words .... hold dear, treasure, adore, cherish, enamoredness, lovingness, warmheartedness, tenderness, protectiveness, affectionateness, emotionalism, demonstrativeness, emotionalism, fondness, heartstrings, compassion, fellow feeling, kindheartedness....etc

A joy to read


20th March 2017 Book review by Sue Macfarlane Lovelands by Dr Debra Campbell Beautifully written with tenderness, openness, and wisdom and an abundance of experience coupled with the professional awareness of a psychologist Such an invaluable, insightful and inspiring book. I highly recommend Lovelands to anyone who wants to understand themselves, and others, in the aspect of childhood family dynamics, hurts and losses and how those experiences impact on our relationships, our loves, our ability to self-love. Lovelands provides the opportunity to reflect and learn more about ourselves and how to further develop emotional maturity and discover strategies we can implement to enhance our relationships and increase our quality of happiness. Dr Debra Campbell wrote with such a certain style, that it felt like she was sitting alongside me as a good friend giving me worldly advice. Lovelands is a book that I will re-read and reference back to time and time again. A pure joy to read.

Beautiful, wise, reflective...


Lovelands, an autobiographical account of love, life and relationships, offers a map to the traverses of our inner landscape including the Plains of Uncertainty, Mt Danger, The Forest of Forgiveness, the Lake of Self-Compassion, Mt Mindfulness, the River of Life and the Resilience Retreat. Lovelands speaks to living a life of passion and flow, embracing our vulnerability, practicing self-compassion, cultivating resilience and mindful relationships with others and with ourselves. While the book has a particular focus on couple relationships, our Lovelands in fact relate to all facets of our lives including parenting, career and to our own self-development and self-care. A workbook is available to accompany the book and assist the reader to reflect on their own personal Lovelands.
