Ballet News Reviews | It’s Not You It’s Me by Camilla Sacre-Dallerup

Camilla Sacre-Dallerup is a former Strictly Come Dancing Professional dancer, and 2008 Strictly Champion, who always wanted to be a judge on the show, rather than a dancer. It wasn’t to be, but her path has been all the more interesting as a result.

After leaving Strictly, Sacre-Dallerup focused on her well-being business. She is a life coach, certified hypnotherapist and author. Her book Reinvent Me, is currently available on Amazon for the sum of £1. I reviewed it in 2017. Reinvent Me is clever. It’s pint sized, easy to carry around, with short, sharp chapters focused on what you need to know/do and how to begin. Do you want to change career, find a new hobby or relocate ? Reinvent Me is on hand to guide you through the 8 step process.

With It’s Not You It’s Me, Sacre-Dallerup reminds us all that we are enough, and her book is a guide to finding the relationship/s where you are stuck, and through 4 sections (self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-love and self-care) will take you on a journey towards removing the blocks and set patterns. It’s all about finding what you already have; a message that will chime with anyone currently working through the 30 day yoga journey with Adriene Mishler called HOME :

The full HOME playlist (updated daily throughout January 2020 and then available for free, forever).

What I love about both of these books written by Camila Sacre-Dallerup is that they are easy to put into action because of the way they are written and structured. At the end of each chapter, you’ll be asked to meditate, reflect and to journal on specific points raised during that section. It’s a great way to cement the teaching and you don’t have to do all three.

If you’re into meditation, there are specifically written practices to go with the book and these are highlighted as you go. There’s a toolbox which pops up regularly and here you’ll find all you need to really dig in. Sacre-Dallerup shares her own challenges and how she’s used these very tools to overcome them. Perceptive questions are regularly asked and help to guide your thoughts and hone in on the relationships you want to focus on. Her tone is warm and encouraging and there’s no reason why you can’t find what you’re looking for here.

January is traditionally a time of New Things, which can either be exciting or overwhelming depending on how much baggage you’re carrying around from previous ‘new things’.

It’s Not You It’s Me is worth your time and through the work, you can return to it over and over again like a trusted friend, as you unravel the knots and find everything you need within. Self-care, your way.
