Author Biography

I’m an Author/Counseling Psychologist living in Sydney, Australia, with husband Fred and son Nicholas. I love assisting others in developing greater self-love, self-acceptance, and personal strength; and empowering them to find their connection with what gives them inspiration (my qualifications include MA in Psychology, Post Grad Dip in Psychology, and Grad Cert of Peace and Conflict Studies).
My particular passion is addressing and raising awareness about the barriers/restrictions that I keep stumbling across in my counseling work, that restrict women from experiencing a sense of connection with themselves and high levels of self-worth.

Reviewed by Edith Wairimu for Readers' Favorite

In Liberating Inner Eve: A Reflective Journey for Women, author Bozena Zawisz takes the reader on a journey of self-worth and growth even as they rediscover their purpose. Using Eve’s biblical story as the background of the book, Zawisz provides a fresh viewpoint and in-depth insight with regard to the role played by the woman in society and the family, from a Christian perspective. According to her, many times our traditions have been a barrier to fully embracing the position of the woman as God perceived and intended it to be. Zawisz quotes many scholars in Christian history, including Tertullian and St John Chrysostom. She examines their words and offers her perspective which she supports with scriptural doctrine. Her Polish heritage and experience as a Counselling Psychologist further provide greater profundity in the book.

I found Bozena Zawisz’s take on the story of Eve quite distinctive. I never looked at the account from the perspective presented in Liberating Inner Eve. So many times women have adopted false dogma which has decelerated their growth and possible impact on the world around them. The exercises included in the book helped me assess my outlook on different topics. I was surprised at the concealed untrue notions and expectations that I have carried around with me for far too long. Bozena Zawisz’s acuity in understanding the challenges women face and presenting solutions using biblical teachings was masterful. Ultimately, Liberating Inner Eve is a great read that challenged me to look at my life from a fresh perspective.
