Product description


'Changing Lightbulbs, an engaging tale of Sue Tredget's journey to the brink of hell and back, has tremendous value for anyone who, though on the surface seems to be living a life others would envy, underneath feels like a fraud because of a gaping sense of emptiness that no one knows about. Sue's story is especially instructive in that it emphasises how important spirituality and a sense of purpose are in making a complete recovery from depression. We are reminded that nothing less than a total acceptance of who you are, warts and all, will allow you to live an authentic and fulfilled life. Highly recommended, especially since there aren't too many books out there that speak to professional people who mask their depression.' Dr Sophie Henshaw, Clinical Psychologist

'At turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, this honest account of one 'ordinary' woman's descent into depression - and its inherent feelings of guilt and shame - shows the Black Dog can bite anyone at any time. But this is also a story of hope, one that reveals there is a way back from the darkest depths, and that by holding on, reaching out for help and support, and never giving up, you can rediscover the joy of living.' Julie Hosking, Editor, West Weekend magazine

'What a remarkable book this is ... a heartfelt, no-holds-barred look at depression and anxiety that deserves to be read ... a story that really needs to be out in the world.' Amanda J Spedding, award-winning author

About the Author

Sue Tredget grew up in Northern Ireland and now lives in Western Australia with her husband, two boys and her cavoodle, Ellie. She began writing during a year off from her job as a language teacher in 2014, after which she returned to teaching on a more flexible basis so that she could continue writing and pursue her other interests. These include travel, particularly to France, Italy and Spain, and working as a volunteer Speaker/Ambassador for the not-for-profit organisation beyondblue to raise awareness about mental health, increase community understanding and help break down stigma. Sue has also written Transformation, which is soon to be published, a collection of poems to heal and replenish the spirit and a series of children's picture books. She enjoys writing reflective articles which she posts on her website, drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, her daily observations of the little things in life, and her travels.
