A new self-help title blending the very best techniques from a range of evidence-based therapies, including CBT, ACT, DBT, compassion and mindfulness from two experienced clinicians.
Most of us have some behaviours which are not fully under our control but when those start interfering with our lives and with who we want to be, we need this book. When we turn away from opportunity and excitement in case it makes us anxious, we lose the joy in our lives and can experience misery and depression as well as, oddly, even more anxiety.
GET YOUR LIFE BACK helps you to identify what is really important to you and to notice the ways in which you behave which interfere with reaching your goals and following valued directions. It shows how to understand your own behaviour with compassion, without judgement, and how to both accept and change unhelpful or damaging ways of acting. You will learn new skills to manage emotion and endure discomfort as you journey towards mindful self-control.
Uniquely, this book presents a blend of evidence-based treatments (CBT, ACT, DBT, compassion and mindfulness) giving you the best and most effective therapies for a better you.
Get Your Life Back is an easy to read manual to help anyone who wants to tackle a psychological problem. It is based on four therapeutic approaches which are researched and effective - CBT, DBT, ACT & CFT. It has exercises throughout which can be written in the book. There are brief introductions to key interventions including mindfulness and how to deal with negative thoughts & flashbacks. The authors have also created a website with handouts & more resources. This manual is very accessible & I would recommend it to anyone in therapy or wanting some ideas how to tackle a problem themselves.
