Change Your Thinking is the bestselling guide to managing upsetting emotions by learning to think in a healthy and balanced way. It provides practical strategies for overcoming negative thoughts and behaviours, and taking control of emotions such as anxiety, depression, frustration, anger and guilt.
It also describes techniques for enhancing self-esteem, improving communication skills and developing greater personal happiness. Change Your Thinking is based on the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), the psychological approach used by therapists all over the world. Sarah Edelman explains CBT in a clear and compassionate way. This edition also contains a brand new chapter on mindfulness, demonstrating how mindfulness techniques can be integrated with CBT strategies. "Normally I don’t think books like this are very helpful, but Change Your Thinking is really helping me to change my life.
When I started reading it, I immediately felt like I could get back in control and actually improve what I had accepted as the status quo. The author gives a lot of simple tips that work, and the exercises are a big help. I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from anxiety or depression."
