The book is concise, informative and designed to be read and picked up when there are certain emotions we are finding difficult to tackle - how to recognise short term numbing processes and alleviate the negative thought/emotional biases we encounter when life deals us an unfair hand.
As one who has suffered innumerable setbacks in life, with frequent “Why am I so different for feeling so strongly when others seem to ride through life and tell me I’m too over sensitive” thoughts and feelings, I’m going to learn to counter them with helpful tools Dr Julie has set out so that I can build more “resilience” in future.
In my mid 40s I thought I would have it all figured out. It’s not the case at all and I’m reassured this book is going to help me identify where I could help myself better in future.
While reading this book you can feel a sense of warmth around you making you feel that you are not alone or not to be ashamed of our vulnerabilities. It is out emotions that define us and we should embrace them. The book guides you in a concise and empathetic manner sitting proudly beside me wherever I am / should I need to refer to it. You can target each topic as and when you need.
It is more than a book for me, it is a symbol of hope that we all have our place in the world and there are good people out there caring and supporting us raising mental health awareness. My only wish was that Dr Julie and the book were there when I was younger in my darkest times but I am glad she, and the book is by my side now when my thoughts started to wonder in a negative zone or feeling low. I would go as far to the book is inspiring and life-saving, I genuinely mean that.
Even writing this I am tearful but have a sense of joy knowing that I am not alone and that mental health is no laughing matter or makes me a lesser person. I am grateful for everything Dr Julie does and will continue to spread her good work to friends and family.
Dr Julie comes across as someone an absolute expert in her field with a genuine care, the world could really learn a lot from her. My final comment is "WHY HASN'T NOBODY TOLD ME THIS BEFORE!"
I then have started training to be a therapist myself and I work as a freelance hairdresser so hand in hand this book will fascinate me and help me understand the brain even more.
You can tell how passionate she is and that she actually does care.
I will leave another review once i've read the book!
congratulations on your dream of writing a book, and thank you for raising awareness!
Literally what it says on the tin! WHY HASNT NOBODY TOLD ME THIS BEFORE!! Thank you so much for providing the tools needed to aid areas that impact mental health!
I can not wait to use these tools within my work setting to support the patients including educating my daughter on mindfulness techniques and healthy tools!
Was just watching your live on TikTok and so happy for you! This is amazing and these tools could aid within mental health services! I’ll be forwarding these onto my university and placement settings.
Thank you so much
