Are you alright pet? will make you feel brave and confident enough to love yourself just the way you are. This simple, effective, technique requires no rocket science, no support groups and certainly no sitting around in a circle, cross-legged and confessing to somehow not being Elizabeth I, Florence Nightingale and Emmeline Pankhurst all rolled into one. It's the serious self-help equivalent of a cup of decent tea, a custard cream and a ruddy good cause to fight for. Chances are that you're already putting the few skills that you need into practice, each and every day. We Brits like our Health Service to be Public and our Self-Help to be Private. We like our play to be fair and our underdogs to be winners. The only outward sign of your day-to-day success - other than maybe occasionally leaping tall buildings to come to your own defence - will be an enigmatic "Now I know something you don't know" smile.
