Book Description

Do you often suspect the worst of others? Mild to moderate paranoia, or mistrust of other people, is on the increase, and although it may feel justifiable at the time, unfounded suspicions of this kind can make life a misery. Research says between 20 and 30 per cent of people in the UK frequently have suspicious or paranoid thoughts. This is the first self-help guide to coping with what can be a debilitating condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review by Surrey psychologist. 19 July 2007
By G.P.
Excellent book. User friendly and easy to follow. Helps to frame suspicious/ paranoid thoughts as the "understandable" consequence of a number of factors that come together. Really useful guide for those experiencing such distressing thoughts and for also for professionals working in this area. Another 1st class book from the "Overcoming" series.

4.0 out of 5 stars fighting against paranioa 30 Nov. 2010
By Trumpet
I like this book it makes you sit back and realise that you are not on your own, that there are other people out there that feel the same way as you.
It goes through why you are having paranoid thoughts and the reasons you do actually sit and think about it.
This book for me was an eye opener the excersies through out this book are great I go through them nearly everyday and it really helps, since reading this book i have become alot calmer. Still along way to go but I think this book is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 28 Feb. 2013
By gemma95
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very useful book to read and work through. It tackles a topic not much talked about elsewhere and is the only book i have found which described a feeling I have had in the past of "not existing" or "not being here" and explains what this is and how it may have arisen. For that alone I am grateful. However there is more to this book than this and anyone who has suffered from insecurity in themselves or paranoia would in my opinion find it a useful read in that process of self healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars overcoming paranoid and suspicious thoughts 12 Sept. 2011
By tricky
a very good read for the self helper who wishes to get to grips with their problems. Working through the set exercises would be helpful for anyone with anxieties or worrying thoughts. A good read and not too theoretical.Overcoming Paranoid and Suspicious Thoughts: A Self-Help Guide Using Cognitive Behavioral Techniques

There is not much out there for sufferers or carers. This book fills a big gap. It is easy to read and focuses on self help and understanding. It is not judgemental and backs up statements made by pointing examples and to research. My experience is that it has helped to soften damaging thought processes that have become hardened with time and use. I hope that it will provide some of the tools to sustain a hard won recovery.

I suffer from anxious thoughts and severe depression and was told to read this from a friend and after ready in twice and completing all the activities in the book I can truly say I have never felt this good since diagnosed, it really helps with changing the way you think about you, how you think and life it self, it's made more of a difference then the medication that was prescribed by my doctor.

5.0 out of 5 stars As CBT goes 4 May 2014
By earnie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good self help book from real experts!! Book this for someone and found the explanations and exercises useful but must be combined with real therapy. A good background reading in between sessions. I found it good with my suspicious thinking...... its normal according to the book. However, I am wondering what you'll make of this review and think you may not like me for it hahaha!

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost helpful 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because of what it said on the front cover, but as I started reading through the sections of the book. I found the first few chapters helpful to my problem but reading further, I found it wasn't what I was looking for. Self help advice was useful.
