I have found this very useful to listen to in the car to and from work. The overall tone is very calm, balanced and engenders a sense of kindness to oneself which is easy to overlook in todays rushed world.

It can't replace structured CBT sessions but in my life there isn't time or the money for CBT and this is a useful halfway house, especially as prof Gilbert possesses a rather sagacious mind.

CD1 is pretty generic depression information but CD2 is where this package really shines, and is useful to listen to several times when you need a calming practical voice.

I would also strongly recommend his self-help book on depression and his book aimed at trainees in CBT.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little dissapointing 21 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
I work within a CBT framework and am always looking for tools that I can give to my patients to aid their self-knowledge.

I bought this and listened to it in the car before recommending it to others.

Broadly I think the style is not great. Paul is someone who I respect (the Compassionate Mind is very useful) as an author and thinking in CBT. I found his style somewhat uninspiring, with audio books it is easy to drift off and not really hear what is being said. I found this happening to me a great deal.

On that, I would certainly set aside a 20 minute slot each day to listen to each section rather than just listening to it all in 1 or 2 sittings.

He talks you through the nature of depression and some broad ideas about the brain and lifestyle and then focuses on his ideas of kindness towards the self. He then uses lots of Mindfulness ideas. All of this is good. But, by the time I had got on to the second CD I had mostly lost my focus.

Hmmmm, I think I might just work differently to Mr Gilbert. I wouldn't focus on the Psychoeducational aspects so much and more on the maintaining cycles of Depression.

Overall, not as good as I was hoping but still useful in parts.
