Vivienne Smith is a writer, trainer, presenter, transformational coach, and certified neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnosis practitioner.
Her experience as a single mum prompted Vivienne to write a book about the subject. It has been the fulfillment of a long term ambition to turn what was at the time a negative and distressing experience into an opportunity to help others get through similar challenges. Through her book, coaching, seminars and webinars, Vivienne provides support, practical advice and inspiration to single mothers everywhere.
First steps to a happy life
"I work with single mums who are struggling to come to terms with the break-up and deal with the daily challenges of going it alone.
I help them release the sadness and bitterness and regain their confidence and composure so they can minimise conflict in co-parenting, enjoy their children and take the first steps to build a happy new life.
Here's to: not just surviving, but thriving!"
About the book
"Fully-packed with wonderful advice, witty, not afraid to tackle the difficult stuff but very funny at the same time. A must-read for all the single mums out there!"
"A great and well-thought out book! Covers every facet of life from making the divorce decision to breaking the news to your kids to successful co-parenting to moving on and finding a new love partner. Vivienne tapped into great experts in every section who provide insight and wisdom every step of the way. This is a guide, support system and lift your spirits handbook all in one!"

"If your relationship breaks down and you find yourself alone and trying to come to terms with life then this book will be an absolute lifeline. Sometimes it can appear to be an almost impossible task just to move forward but when there's children involved you just have to get on with it. This book not only tells the stories of other women in your position but also provides a wealth of practical help. This is a self-help book with a difference, it will guide you every step of the way. I particularly appreciated being able to contact professionals directly and their guidelines were very clearly explained."
