TALK with Esther after the reading

RECORDING of the event (if you cannot attend)


You too can free yourself from your fears.

Fear of not being good enough, fear of being laughed at, fear of not being seen, heard, or understood, fear that something will go wrong again...

In her autobiography and self-help book "Living Without Fear", journalist, and children's book author Esther Buerki describes in an impressive and honest way how she struggled for years with fears, self-doubt, and depression.

At the age of 57, she discovered methods and exercises that helped her to steer her feelings and thoughts by degrees into positive channels and slowly to start living the life she had always dreamed of: empowered, fulfilled, and full of joy.

In ‘Living Without Fear’ you will learn how you too can overcome your fears and self-doubt, with the help of many valuable, true-to-life tips.



“I am totally flashed and very touched. I am devouring your book and have now landed on page 117 and tears are streaming down my face because I also experience this feeling of gratitude and love. To your book, I can only say ‘Wow’! I’m sure you will encourage many people with your openness when they are ready for change.”

“It's fantastic! Your style of writing reminds me of the best-selling book "Educated" by Tara Westover.”



“Your writing is great. You write authentically and deeply. I’m so happy to get to know you and to be able to participate in your development process.”

"Thank you for reading your powerful and thought-provoking story. My wide-screen imagination was running at full speed. Parallels kept popping up in these personal stories, letting me know that I’m not alone in my own experiences from childhood and adolescence. For me, your motivating charisma is a ray of hope."

M.G., Switzerland


“Your book is wonderful and healing. A few tears at first...and I'm sure there will be more. It opens my heart. It touches. When I read it in the evening, I always fall asleep well and wake up content, happy, and closer to myself. I'm looking forward to what other feelings it triggers in me, and I'm excited about more great exercises.”

M.L., Switzerland


"It's beautiful how openly you describe what you experienced. I'm sure that will help many!"

"Der Landbote", Winterthur, 17.12.2022

"The birth went terribly. The umbilical cord had wrapped around his neck a few times. I was terrified." Fear of losing one's child, fear of failure, fear of poverty. Fear of a life of mediocrity. Fears long defined the life of Winterthur children's book author, podcaster, and writing coach Esther Buerki, who also writes for the "Landbote" as a freelancer. In her book which is definitely also self-therapeutic, she now describes these fears relentlessly, one after the other. She gives readers insight into therapy sessions and psychoanalyses in which she picks apart the fears and seeks childhood explanations for them.

The descriptions are a wild ride from hopelessness through the first newspaper article, perfectionism, through generations of inherited war trauma, suicidal thoughts, dealing with money, and finally into the Covid lockdown that changed the way she viewed her parents.

The anecdotes are well-structured and personal, yet told so vividly and authentically that others can relate.

This autobiographical half is followed by specific tips on how to face self-doubt and anxiety. Some of the approaches she herself learned in personality coaching sessions are special and surprising. Some tips, however, are more generalities that can already be found in large numbers on motivational coaching websites.

In the prologue, Esther Buerki expresses the hope that her book can help others struggling with their self-worth and fears. Whether or not this succeeds is probably based on the individual situation of the readers and how much they have already dealt with the topic of self-worth. In any case, the book captivates with its direct narrative style. Browsing through it feels like having a delicious cappuccino with a good friend in a cute café.
