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.
Gillihan compassionately shows us how to integrate what may seem like contradictories: mindfulness and CBT. He offers us many life-skill practices on effective meditating. I have deepened my sense of how to be present so that my head hands, and heart can work together as I face my daily challenges.
This book is a brilliant and touching guide to connecting with your deepest self and finding lasting peace, purpose, and love. Seth Gillihan is the perfect tour guide through this journey to reaching your highest potential.
Beautifully written and touchingly personal, this superb book is destined to help countless people. Whether you're struggling with depression or anxiety or simply want to achieve greater purpose and meaning, this is a must-have book.
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.
