About the Author
I began my academic career as a psychology lecturer and moved on to become a health psychologist and cognitive behaviour therapist. At the time of going to print, I am a training manager for a national mental health charity based in Central London, supporting people with enduring mental health issues into education and training. I also have a private CBT practice in Central London, where I continue to see clients on a regular basis. I decided to write the Little Book of Thinking Errors for very practical reasons. There was no other small, compact and easy to use book that summarised most of the thinking errors that came up in my clinical practice. I wanted to design the book in such a way that it could be used primarily by clients, and people who merely had an interest in the way our thoughts help to shape our feelings. But also, the intention was for the book to be useful to practicing therapists and other health and social care professionals. On a personal level, I have certainly found that in the process of writing this book, I am much more aware of how important it is to increase awareness of our thinking errors, and of the range of techniques we can use to replace unhelpful thoughts, thus helping to minimise psychological distress. I very much hope that you will find this book an easy to use, valuable resource. Feedback is always welcomed. Please visit the website below. Thank you very much for your purchase.
