From Despair To Joy
It wasn’t always an easy ride.
Having grown up in an environment that was both homophobic and heterosexist, Peter was
left battling his demons and feeling anything but ‘gay and happy’.
As a young gay man, he found himself completely lost, homeless, alcoholic and drug
addicted, sleeping in shop doorways and under bridges.
Today he is a leader in his field – a respected psychotherapist, educator and author who
has helped thousands of people to find their own path.
His journey from despair to robust self-esteem was long and hard fought.
“If I had known then what I know now, the journey back home to myself would have
been so much easier – and so much shorter. It’s because of this, and because there
just isn’t this kind of book out there, that I wrote How to Be Gay and Happy.”
Peter Field’s many years experience and study in the area of sexuality and sexual
orientation, together with front-line research into happiness, and his skills as a counsellor,
psychotherapist and writer are all drawn together to create this inspiring, life-enhancing book
written specifically for anyone who is LGBTQ – or who cares about someone
