KENNEBUNK — Kennebunk therapist and author Kingsley Gallup wants people who feel trapped in their lives to feel free and experience happiness, joy, and peace. Gallup will read from her guidebook, “Project Personal Freedom,” and answer questions about how people can attain personal freedom, no matter what their circumstances, at the Kennebunk Free Library at 1 p.m.  Saturday, Jan. 14.

“Project Personal Freedom” is a daily guidebook that offers inspirational and instructional tips about how people can access their own freedom, according to a KFL press release. The book is designed to help everyone, from people coping with occasional stress to those living with chronic emotional and psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. According to Gallup, the book is for people who “feel trapped by life circumstances, belief systems, and/or emotions.”

Gallup created Personal Freedom Therapy (PFT) based on what she sees as a widespread desire for empowerment and self-determination, according to the release. She says that PFT offers a concrete, solution-oriented approach that helps her clients live authentic, liberated lives.

Following the reading, Gallup will answer audience questions and facilitate a discussion. Light refreshments will be served.

Gallup is a licensed professional counselor, a nationally-certified counselor, a distance-credentialed counselor and a certified mediator. “Project Personal Freedom” is the result of her work with hundreds of clients during the last 16 years. For more information about her work, visit
