Author(s): Pamela Stephenson
Pamela Stephenson shows you how to free yourself of psychological pain and move on to well-deserved happiness in this true follow-up to the bestselling biography "Billy", which triggered an overwhelming outpouring from readers suffering from mental health problems. As many as 40 per cent of the British public will undergo these difficulties - such as anguish, depression, anxiety - at some time in their lives, many of which are rooted in childhood trauma. Pamela Stephenson sets out the necessary steps towards freeing oneself from unhealthy constraints of the mind and moving on to enjoy a playful, celebratory life. She shows how early psychological events, as well as biologically-determined traits, affect our adult lives, and suggests courses of action to first work through the past and then leave it where it belongs. Making the jargon of professionals accessible to all, with simple self-diagnosis tools and down-to-earth information about a wide range of mental conditions, she offers a helpful, practical and positive guide that will inspire readers to take manageable steps towards a more joyful life. First published 2007.
