The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Self-esteem
We're excited to announce that another book is forthcoming this autumn. It's a self-help book this time, titled, 'The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Self-esteem'. For the first time, we've teamed up with a publisher in the USA, the independent, employee-owned New Harbinger, who produce books on psychology, health, spirituality, and personal growth. It has been a really rewarding experience and we're really looking forward to seeing how the book goes down with the public.
Here's a sneak preview of the content from the draft of the back cover blurb...
Are you your own worst critic? Does low self-esteem cause you to have thoughts like “I’m a failure,” “I could never do that,” or “If only I were smarter or more attractive, I could be happy?” This kind of negative self-talk creates a barrier to achieving true happiness. That’s because the more we put ourselves down, the more we start believing those messages. So, how do you stop this vicious cycle of self-criticism and start believing in you.
Grounded in proven-effective acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this workbook offers a step-by-step program to help you break free from self-doubt, identify and cultivate your strengths, and reach your full potential. You’ll develop essential skills for overcoming self-sabotaging thoughts, and start treating yourself with acceptance, kindness, and compassion. You are so much more than you think. This book will allow you to see the real you—in all your wonderful complexity—so you can live your very best life.
“The authors of this fabulous workbook have a story to tell, and if you listen to it and learn from it, it will change your life…. Highly recommended!” — Kirk Strosahl, PhD, codeveloper of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and coauthor of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Depression
