Cheryl Rickman is a Sunday Times best-selling author and ghostwriter of 19 self-help, wellbeing and business books and a qualified Positive Psychology Practitioner.
After her parents' lives were cut short, Cheryl Rickman decided to devote her life to helping others make the most of their own precious lives, through the books she writes and the workshops she creates.
She specialises in writing empowering, practical books to help people fret less and flourish more and is a Wellbeing Ambassador for the Network of Wellbeing.
Her most recent books include: The Happiness Bible, The Little Book of Resilience, The Little Book of Serenity and Be More Wonder Woman. Her first self-help book was The Flourish Handbook, published in 2013.
Having qualified with a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology in 2016, Cheryl also runs wellbeing retreats and delivers workshops on acceptance, balance and compassion, The ABC of Flourishing™ across the country.
As well as writing books, Cheryl also writes features for a variety of publications including Psychologies and Breathe magazine.
Cheryl wrote her first book, The Small Business Start-Up Workbook, in 2005, which has a Foreword by Dame Anita Roddick and reached the number one spot on Amazon. Since then she's ghostwritten 10 books for business leaders, psychologists and wellbeing experts, as well as penning nine books of her own.
Her first book for children was published in 2017 after a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding project. Called YES YOU CAN, the book shows kids that all toys, colours, clothes & hobbies are for all children by shining a light on gender stereotypes in a child-friendly way. The book also encourages children to find their spark, do what they love and be proud to be themselves.
Cheryl lives with her husband, daughter and two dogs in a country cottage in Hampshire, UK. She is an unashamed tree-hugger and nature-lover, has an overflowing book shelf and her favourite colour is rainbow. She adores pizza and the smell of playdoh, but is not a fan of mushrooms or spiders.
