Here’s hoping!

I’ve watched many of Dr. Julie’s short videos on social media, and became quickly hooked on the way they made me feel.
I was going to buy the book, but was given an Audible subscription for Xmas so this audible book was destined to be my first purchase.
I like that Dr Julie narrates it, as it feels like she’s talking to me direct.
Even after just a few chapters I have started using the techniques she describes, eg writing down what I’m grateful for! I now realise I’ve been in ‘low mood’ for quite some time!
Its only been a few days since publication but this morning I feel better than I have for a long time, and feel ‘my body has a smile’
Lots more left to listen to, but, here’s hoping for a real change in my mood and lifestyle!
Ps. I’ll probably end up buying the book as well!

PDF

For those wondering where PDF is - I couldn’t find it to start with either but if you click on ‘chapters’ it’s right at the top in bold. Hope this helps.

A toolkit we all need

I could not stop listening! This book gently gives an insight to the tools for life which everyone will benefit from. I have loved listening so much - I will be buying the paper copy to keep reading!

A dull and boring guide to self-counselling

A dull and boring guide to self-counselling.

This book probably sounded good when pitched to an editor off the back of a successful social media account, and I imagine it will find an audience based on the promise alone.

However that promise of a ‘one size fits all’ approach to self-counselling is simply not realised and we are left with a book that promises much but delivers little.

There is far too little time afforded to far too many complex matters and the book feels flat, dull, and boring as a result.

Wow. What a book! A guide for life!

I haven't even listened to all the sections of the book yet, only the three that I found most applied to my issues, but the book has already proved indispensable. I especially appreciate Dr Julie's heavy focus on practicality and the realities of life - e.g. when she acknowledges that some stressful elements in life are impossible to remove and one simply has to learn to manage the stress in a healthy way.
This book is really a treasure trove of sensible, practical, down-to-earth and easily actionable advice on facing and dealing with the challenges of life.
Thank you, Dr Julie!

Solid self-help

Didn't tell me anything I didn't know but she explains everything really clearly and has a reassuring delivery.
