Unf*ck Yourself

Get out of your head and into your life

By Gary John Bishop

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Resigned and defeated? It's time to unf*ck yourself.

This is not the usual self-help book. Make your life one you actually want to live.

This is blunt force trauma to the way you think life has to be for you. Most importantly, it is designed to give you an authentic leg up - one that feels genuine and right for you, and can propel you to new levels of greatness. Learn how to:

Combat self-doubt
Deal with your inner critic
Stop comparing yourself to others
Break out of your rut

It will teach you not to look to the outside world for answers, but inside yourself. You will learn how to take full responsibility of your life, the highs and the lows, and you'll actually feel good about it - no, in fact, you'll feel f*cking great about it!

Fight

Hazel Gale
Authors:
Hazel Gale

As human beings, we have an unlimited capacity for self-sabotage. Sometimes it can feel like part of us is devoted to stifling success and it can be enormously frustrating to realise that we are being our own worst enemy. But the mind has its reasons for behaving like this. It's not as self-destructive as it seems. Cognitive hypnotherapy offers a ground-breaking, science-based approach to overcoming mental blocks and managing emotions. Fight is a book for people who want to understand, and ultimately influence, the workings of their unconscious mind. Written by Hazel Gale, a top cognitive hypnotherapist with a background in competitive kickboxing and boxing, it will help you to let go of self-imposed limitations, negative emotions and mental blocks, enabling you to improve on your existing attributes as well as develop new strengths, skills and abilities.No matter our age, background or profession, it can be easy to feel like we have to fight with our own mind to do what we want. As a competitive kickboxer and boxer with titles ranging from national to world champion, Hazel was forced to recognise and deal with her own inner conflict in an extreme and often public context. Over the years, she struggled with anxiety-related issues and an emotional and physical burnout that she was only able to recover from by addressing the psychological factors at play. Fight takes you on her journey, and provides you with the knowledge needed to emerge victorious from your own battles, whatever they may be.Throughout this book are optional tasks designed to help you address your own psychological stumbling blocks. By the end, you will have the tools to reverse-engineer automatic self-sabotaging thoughts and claim back your rightful sense of self-control.

We see how children begin to make breakthroughs with depression or anxiety, destructive, even sometimes violent behaviour.Growing Pains is compelling and compassionate - a book to make us wiser and braver, and to help us see how children's stories can find happier endings.(P)2018 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

The State Of Affairs

Esther Perel
Authors:
Esther Perel

'Beautiful. A brilliantly intelligent plea for complexity, understanding, and - as always - kindness.' Alain de Botton'Esther Perel does nothing short of strip us of our deepest biases, remind us of our purpose in connecting as lovers, and save relationships that might otherwise sink into the sea-all with even-handed wisdom, fresh morality, and wise prose. Thank heavens for this woman.'Lena Dunham, author of Not That Kind of GirlIconic couples' therapist and bestselling author Esther Perel returns with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity.An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so too have the prohibitions against it - in fact, adultery has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood.What are we to make of this time-honored taboo - universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat? When we say 'infidelity', what exactly do we mean? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Psychotherapist Esther Perel is recognised as one of the most insightful and original voices on modern love. For the past ten years, she has worked with hundreds of couples who have grappled with infidelity. Betrayal hurts, she argues, but healing is possible. An affair can even be the doorway to a new marriage - with the same person. With the right approach, couples can learn from these tumultuous experiences, together or apart. Weaving real-life stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis, Perel invites readers into a truly revealing exploration of modern marriage.
