A practicing psychologist – one of the top popularizers of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – offers a fresh, welcome approach for treating mental health issues that speaks to our times, blending mindfulness and spirituality with CBT to effectively overcome negative thinking, achieve deep healing, and truly attain lasting peace.

Mental health professionals have numerous tools and techniques to help their patients battle depression and illness. But while these methods can alleviate the pain, they are often only temporary. Based on his extensive knowledge of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and his personal experience with depression and illness, Dr. Seth J. Gillihan believes we need to do more than relieve our symptoms to become healthy and whole. To achieve long-lasting wellness and good health, we must embrace the spiritual in our healing.

By incorporating insights from both Christianity and Buddhism and mindfulness into the therapeutic process, we can exponentially magnify the healing CBT provides. Gillihan calls his method Mindful Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and shows how it can be used successfully to master negative thoughts and behaviours and choose the right actions to become fully present and at peace in our daily lives.

This extraordinary guide shows how to banish the stubborn lies we tell ourselves – that we’re unlovable, stupid, unworthy, defective – and adapt new healthful and spiritual practices that can help us retrain our minds to focus on the deep truths of our existence – that we are perfect in our imperfections, and most important, that we are beings deserving of love.


This book is a gift. Seth Gillihan weaves his own story of depression and healing together with the most powerful insights from mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. On every page, I could hear his gentle voice - beckoning, honest and kind, warm and wise. There isn't a clinical psychologist whose insights I trust more or whose writing is more inspiring.

When learning Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, it's sometimes difficult to see how all the parts can add up to a 'good life'. Dr Seth Gillihan illustrates this beautifully with the addition of mindfulness, acceptance, and values-based strategies to classic CBT. With poetic vulnerability, he gives examples of how he has done this through the troughs of his life in a way that brings the strategies to life and is extremely helpful, comforting, and will help you feel less alone in your struggles.
