"IT IS A RARE AUTHOR THAT WRITES ON THE VIOLENCE OF SILENCE"
“Typically, those who bully are aggressive or violent are demonised whereas individuals who are passive, appeasing and pleasing are sanctified. It is a rare author that writes on the violence of silence and how those who are passive need as much help, understanding and support as those who bully. The book takes on that challenge, and whilst the author is quite prescriptive, she does display compassion for the co-bully in that she links passivity to unresolved traumas from childhood – which is also true for those who bully! The author recognises too that unless individuals are at peace physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually, they will present with a collection of dis-eases."

"JUDITH IS A BRILLIANT AUTHOR AND HAS PENNED AN EXCEPTIONAL BOOK"
“As CEO of Professional Woman Publishing, LLC., I recognize amazing writing talent! Judith Carmody is a brilliant author and has penned an exceptional book "Co-Bully No More" upon which she based her powerful presentation to a standing ovation at Professional Woman Network International Conference 2018 where she was a featured speaker. Judith is exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject of bullying both professionally and personally. She also bases her additional book Unwrap the Gift of YOU on the subject. She will continue to provide speaking engagements and coaching on the topic of bullying. I highly recommend Judith Carmody to any company, organization, or individual who seeks a top speaker and author on the subject of bullying and building self-confidence with assertiveness skills. For additional information, contact me personally at www.pwnbooks.com."
"A COMPASSIONATE AND INTELLIGENT LOOK AT CO-DEPENDENCY AND KNOWING WHAT A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP IS!"
“In Judith Carmody's books Co-Bully No More and Unwrap the Gift of YOU, she brilliantly and kindly breaks down the dual nature of bullying, the seduction of poor treatment, and the difficulty in leaving honouring the danger in staying. By acknowledging there are many levels of socialization going on at once, she delicately explains it. There is no judgment, only a desire to empower and help each person understand how they have become stuck in a dance they no longer wish to perform. In helping each person understand their engagement and how they limit themselves, she is literally giving them the keys to their own liberation. In logical progression, she outlines the multiple levels of bullying, control, and domination. More importantly, she offers a look at what a healthy relationship is. It is not enough to say leave. Unless we have the tools to understand what a healthy relationship looks like we will have difficulty recognizing it. Even more disappointing, we may recreate it without knowing.
Her approach is easily accessible for those at a professional level, but more importantly, could easily be shared with young women on up. The openness and kindness in presentation offers no judgments but actually challenges those who believe it is so easy to make changes by giving them a deeper understanding of what the co-bully is dealing with and how deep the hurts and patterns may be. In offering what a healthy relationship is and can be, those who know what they have isn't right are able to understand why, and more importantly how, they have come to accept what they have. If it takes two to tango, it only makes sense it takes two to be in an unhealthy relationship. In the words of Maya Angelou "You did the best that you knew how. Now that you know better, you'll do better." Judith Carmody certainly seeks to help everyone 'do better.'"

"THE TIME HAS ABSOLUTELY COME FOR A WELL WRITTEN BOOK LIKE THIS!"
“Only now are we as one family of humanity awakening from a great slumber. It is time to remember once again the wisdom of our hearts. We are all here to heal together as one...
In Unwrap the Gift of YOU, I appreciate how Judith establishes a foundational framework of awareness for those that cannot see or speak for themselves yet. The text also has balance between science, naming what is really going on and what to do! Judith powerfully inspires a healthier perspective on living!
Judy, you have great wisdom expressed here! Well done for the courage to be a Change Agent for so many that need a champion.... I am very, very proud of you!!!"

"CO BULLY NO MORE - ECHOS THE DESPAIR AND DESOLATION SUFFERED BY THOSE WHO ARE BULLIED."
“This very worthwhile study by Judith Carmody offers no cotton wool camouflage to either party in the savage duet of the bullying process. Here the bullied victim is held at least as much to account as the power-hungry bully. Poor self-esteem and inadequate self-images of the bullied victim are cited as areas for change if the bullying process is to be successfully arrested.
The author writes out of raw experience to the extent that the entire book is dotted with emotive passages echoing the despair and desolation suffered by those who are bullied. This is however a despair and desolation that can be overcome from within the potential victim. Indeed, this person can end up by ceasing to be a victim if the right ground work in self-knowledge is undertaken with due diligence and searing honesty.
The book follows a spiral-like structure. It folds in and backwards on itself several times in its insistence on the taking of responsibility for her or himself by the victim themselves. There is no escaping the simple truth that co-bullies unconsciously tolerate bullies. Bullies thrive when they are unconfronted and when the co-bully is unsupported in their coerced circumstances. Bullying enters if we invite it in. We do not realise we are doing this. But this is what we are doing, and Judith Carmody depicts this process with great vigour, honesty and graphic accuracy. This is a very convincing and a very moving book.
This book very rightly calls a halt, and does in an effective way."
