From the bestselling author of Depressive Illness: The Curse of the Strong, a book for those overwhelmed by stress which offers practical advice and emotional support, distilled from decades of experience as a leading consultant psychiatrist.
Three out of four adults will feel overwhelmed by stress at some point in their lives.
Although stress is a very subjective condition - some people thrive on a certain amount of it - one thing is certain: too much stress, if you feel unable to cope with it, can make you ill.
Dr Tim Cantopher has diagnosed and helped hundreds of people with stress-related illnesses. He will help you to understand the causes of your stress (past and present), and to recognise the people who may be making it worse. This book offers treatments and strategies to manage the stress-related illnesses you may be suffering - whether physical or psychological - and gives you advice on getting, and staying, well.
Written in the author's trademark style, blending simple but astonishingly astute insight with straightforward but astonishingly effective strategies, this book will put you back on the path to wellness as you embrace a gentler, kinder life.
Tim Cantopher is saying something uniquely powerful to people with depression. People affected by depression tell me this is the most powerful and helpful book ever written about the topic. I keep meeting people who say this book changed their lives. - Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2, on "Depression: The Curse of the Strong"
