More About the Author

Dr Liz Miller AKC FRCS MRCGP BSc MSc Dip Occ Med MBPsS born 1957 comes from a long line of doctors, 'There are enough doctors in our family to staff a small hospital". She was the first woman in neurosurgery in the UK, stopped at the final hurdle by severe bipolar disorder. After more than ten years of mental health problems, she finally got to grips with the condition, and has never looked back. She self manages and is happily free of medication. In the meantime she set up the Doctors Support Network with Dr Soames Michelson, took part in Stephen Fry's "Secret life of the Manic Depressive" and in 2008 was voted Mind Mental Health Champion, the year following Stephen Fry.

In 2009 she published MoodMapping, which describes her own journey and describes MoodMapping and the techniques and strategies she uses to manage her own moods.

She is presently working on her next book "Personality Clash" which begins to explain why certain pairings of people are always doomed to disaster.

'MoodMapping is a fantastic tool for managing your mental health and taking control of your life.'
--Jonathan Naess, Founder of Stand to Reason

'Two weeks in and my anxiety levels dropped. Mood Mapping made me feel as if I was getting to know myself. It's good to know there is a tool out there that's at once diagnostic and uplifting.'

Format: Paperback
I bought this book, because I was feeling suicidal, and had been recommended to see my GP. The GP referred me to the local mental health unit, which had a long waiting list (which I am still on) for whatever therapy they could offer.

Meanwhile I read Mood Mapping and did a lot of the exercises in the book.

You will find in the book exercises that work to help you discover what mood you are in, and strategies of how to navigate between your various moods.

This book is full of ideas and techniques, that have yet to be discovered by mental health professionals. This has occurred because the author Liz Miller is a sufferer herself, and by sheer bloody persistence, has worked a way out of her mental disease. She has written up the strategies that she used to get well, and uses to keep well. So this is her gift to us to help us on our path from mental illness, to being able to function in life, and be relatively happy for more of the time. Liz has successfully used these strategies to go from being sectioned under the Mental Health act, to being voted Mind Personality of the year.

I would encourage everybody to read this book, whether you suffer from mental health problems or not.

For sufferers it will help you get strategies that will help you cope with life, and for those fortunate enough not to suffer, will give a greater understanding to yourself of how you work emotionally.

Well this is the first book I have read for many years and I managed to finish it in a week. It has lots of good advice for those with bipolar, family members (like me) and even just for people who want to improve their outlook on life. It is very practical and has detailed tasks and plans to follow. This is definitely a detailed guidebook to follow, rather than a reference book to refer to. So if you want to improve your moods, and really want to do something about it, read this book. If you are just after knowing more about bipolar then there are other books that may do that better. Just another thought - Liz Miller's life and accomplishments are amazing - so it is also a very interesting autobiography.

Format: Paperback
This is the book I have been searching for ! Dr Liz Miller uses plain english and real life examples to illustrate how Mood Mapping can be used a method to change your life. I have BiPolar Disorder and for the first time in 13 years I feel optimistic about the future and less burdened by my illness. I have only been using the Mood Mapping method for about 14 days, but the improvement in mood and confidence has been dramatic! Unlike Psychiatrists and medication, this book has no negative side effects!

I was so pleased with the book, I emailed Dr. Miller to say thanks and she replied within 24 Hours.

Do yourself a favour - buy this book! Dr Miller delivers some great advice, partly based on her own experiences in life.

An absolute 10 out of 10.

Format: Paperback
How many self help books promise the answers, and then leave you to work them out for yourself? Finally, a book that is written by someone who is clearly an authority, yet is reassuringly easy to read and follow. Dr Liz Miller writes with warmth, humour, and an openness that is so refreshing and encouraging. As a therapist myself I encourage anyone who is looking for a way to manage their moods, rather than have their moods mange them, to look no further. Here you will find a system that is clearly explained and simplified to help you every step of the way. Excellent book!

Format: Paperback
Regardless of how you are feeling, whether you feel energetic or lethargic, anxious or calm, your mood affects the way your mind works and your overall outlook on life. It stands to reason, then, that most of us would like to reduce periods where moods and energy levels are low so that we can be more creative and productive.

This book provides a number of self-help tools that can assist. I like the mood mapping and tracking suggestions which can enable patterns to be recognised and, where required, addressed. Self-awareness is essential: learning to identify the physical and emotional factors that affect mood is critical for any of us who suffer from mood disorders. Identifying the triggers that can impact on mood (and what to do) is also important. Mapping mood and energy levels is a great starting point.

At the core of this book is a practical fourteen day plan which, for me, makes a lot of sense. The author of this book, Dr Liz Miller, developed these techniques after being diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder and they have apparently served her well. The key, though, is self-help. If you want better understanding of mood and its role in your own quality of life, then this book may assist.

I have read many self help books in my time, to help me through my journey in life. Many of them churn existing ideas around, and offer little in the way of anything new, other than a different perspective in life. Once in a while, a book comes along with a totally different set of ideas, and a radically new approach. I would put Anthony Robbins 'Awaken the Giant Within' and Richard Bandler's NLP in that class. Mood Mapping is a book that is in the same class. I truly hope that it becomes a classic in the same way as the other books has and Liz Miller gets recognized for her contribution towards human understanding of psychology. This has all ready started to happen when she was made Mind Personality of the Year.
Jung and Freud never did much for me, but the ideas set out in the book do. Her ideas of Mood Mapping allow me to plot out my http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/edit-review/ref=cm_cr_error?_encoding=UTF8&asin=1905744455&reviewID=R34RSWOLQAMH2Fmoods, in a way I never have done before. This has the knock on effect of me being able to behave appropriately whatever the situation. Knowing what state I am in, I can sort of nudge myself towards the state I would like to be in. For this customer, Mood Mapping will be much read, much loved, and much used.
She sets out a book as a self help course, and suggests we should plot our moods over 14 days, Well it will take me longer than that, and I'll find a way that suits me, using her method as my starting point. I can't be bothered to go out and buy a spiral notebook as she suggests, (p32) I'll use bits of A4 paper stuck to the wall around the house, to be filed as and when, but that's me not her.
