About Amanda Harvey
Dynamic speaker,acclaimed writer, and inspiring life coach, Amanda Harvey has a passion for empowerment and holistic well-being.
A native of Australia, Amanda Harvey is currently based in Taiwan. Working as a life coach, teacher, trainer, speaker, and writer, she has spent the last twelve years living in various countries throughout Europe and Asia.
Through her work and life experiences, Amanda has developed a strong passion for encouraging others to embrace their differences and become empowered to choose their own paths.
Amanda's own path has involved overcoming the stigma of depression while learning to live a happy, healthy life even with this potentially devastating condition which affects so many millions of people. This has provided enormous opportunity for personal growth, and a deep desire to share the understanding and knowledge she has acquired in order to help others live their lives to the fullest, no matter how tough the obstacles may seem.
Making alternative life choices, including living abroad and becoming a mother-of-three through interracial adoption, has further strengthened Amanda’s conviction that life is always full of choices and opportunities.
In all her work, the key messages that Amanda endeavors to share are that the only right way to live life is your way, that there is always a choice, and that everything you need to be happy and fulfilled is within you.
Amanda is the author of two books.
One is a self-help book entitled Freedom from Shame; Overcoming the Stigma of Depression. This book is a personal account of Amanda’s experiences of coming to terms with suffering from depression. She shares the process she developed and used to
overcome the stigma and shame
she experienced, and how she is now enjoying a happy healthy life, even with depression.
Amanda's other title is Not My Flesh and Blood, But My Heart and Soul. This book is a memoir telling of Amanda’s journey to motherhood through transracial adoption. Amanda shares her deep realization that family love can transcend all conventions and stereotypes, and that there are many ways to create a family.
