    Book details

The aim of this self-help book is to help the reader to recognize the ways in which they are self-critical and to understand the impact it may be having on their life. Based on Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), the reader will learn proven techniques that will help them to improve their self confidence and fulfill their goals and aspiration.Consistent with the ethos of the Compassionate Mind Approach, and the needs of the reader, this book includes findings from the latest scientific research on self-confidence and self-esteem, practical advice and a wealth of exercises.CFT was initially developed by Professor Paul Gilbert, author of The Compassionate Mind, to treat those with high levels of self-criticism. It uses the proven, research-based techniques of CBT and other therapies with a special focus on the importance of developing inner compassion, in order to alleviate feelings of shame, develop a more balanced outlook and promote resilience. It incorporates elements of mindfulness and Tibetan Buddhism with recent research on human development and studies of the brain. It is increasingly used to treat a wide range of emotional and psychological problems including depression, overeating, shyness, trauma, anxiety and anger.

A ground-breaking, helpful and insightful guide to improving self-confidence (Professor Paul Gilbert, author of The Compassionate Mind)

    this is the practical guide to usig the compassionate mind approach which I have been waiting for. The clear explanation of the theoretical basis and the host of suggestions for compassionate exercises take Paul Gilbert's work adn make it accessible to my clients. Great.

    A good read

    There's literally nothing in this book that wasn't paraphrased from Paul Gilbert's Compassionate Mind, and less-well expressed this time round.

    Very good straightforward introduction to Compassion Focused Therapy - clearly set out, easy to dip in and out of. Exercises you can do if you want to - or just read the book for an overall view of the subject. Recommended.
