This is a truly helpful book not just for people who suffer from horrible debilitating thoughts and feelings, but for absolutely everyone who is a human being! In fact I would describe it as the self help book for the person who thought they would never, ever buy a self help book. With Hazel, you feel you're in safe hands. She recognises our struggles great and small and shows such wit, common sense and lightness of touch, that her wise words comfort like those from a much loved friend. Look, she says, stop beating yourself up, we can deal with this, together. I defy anyone to read this book without feeling wiser, stronger and ready to move forward in a healthier, happier way.
An incredible read! I wanted to read this book for my own issues around my sports, and my mindset with my self doubt..... however in reading this amazing book it has totally changed how my partner and I speak to our children — both WHAT we say, and HOW we say things in front of them. It may seem obvious as a parent but how Hazel talks about it in the book made me really think back to things were said to me as a child, perhaps it’s why I have some self doubt??! As a result on changing our approach our son has made amazing progress with a speech issue he was struggling with. He has completely changed! We loved him all the time, but we’re falling in love all over again.
So not only had this book assisted me, but also my 3 year old son..... who without Hazels advice and the way she has written I wouldn’t have implemented the changes. Thank you Hazel. Highly recommend this book xx
This book has changed my life immeasurably- and that’s honestly no exaggeration. Hazel manages to tread the difficult line of explaining the theory behind the self- help concepts yet still making the process fully accessible and engaging. Hazel uses her own experiences to highlight how this practice has helped her come back from the brink- something I’ve not seen before in a self help book- this definitely made me listen and understand the thinking behind the guidance on a deeper level. This book is something I will be going back to time and again for guidance in reframing my thinking- the self sabotaging monster within us is a powerful and scary thing but you do have control over the little blighter- this book helps you to understand there’s nothing to be frightened or ashamed of. Buy this book if you want to be happier, calmer and altogether more enlightened person- no brainer right?!
I absolutely loved this book. It’s well written and very interesting. Whilst I am already familiar with the concepts in this book, it was written in a way that I still learnt new things. I recommend it to all of my colleagues and clients. Well worth a read.
I love this book too! I am lucky enough to have worked with Hazel Gale and anything she writes is worth reading. This book is a game changer. It is helpful in so many different ways. I cannot recommend it enough!
I love this book. It is inspiring, challenging, entertaining but ultimately has very powerful in helping you let go of stuff that is getting in your way of creating more of the life you want. I totally recommend it for anyone who thinks they can be their own worst enemy. You can change that with this books help.
This is a really useful, practical, and personable book. Hazel's writing style is lovely, and supportive, and it's an enjoyable read. The exercises are clear, and really help develop a better understanding and compassion for those things we do, repeatedly, where we get in our our way. And then we get to work that new insight into action, improved self-confidence, and better ways of working with ourselves. And it's this creation of lasting change that really solidified the 5 stars for this book for me.
