Product description

Review



A wonderful set of ideas and techniques that can help reduce depression and build happiness. They're simple, engaging, practical and - most importantly- they're all based on evidence from the latest positive psychology research, so we know they really work" --Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness

"My advice is to give this book a go. If I was going to buy one book on positive psychology to treat depression, I'd choose an author who'd been properly trained as a positive psychologist, who knows how to write in an engaging and accessible way, and who understands, first-hand, the challenges of depression. In short, I'd choose Miriam." --Dr Phil Hammond, GP & Comedian

"The first to apply positive psychology solutions to depression,Miriam's book is clear, engaging and enlightening. In fact it is so good that despite all my existing knowledge, I borrowed a few tips for myself! I love the summary tables and the first-aid kits - they really bring positive psychology to life." --Dr Ilona Boniwell, Programme Leader for the first MSc in Applied Positive Psychology in Europe, UEL.

"This book is a joy. Miriam Akhtar clearly demonstrates that positive psychology is both practical and effective. The book will be a vital tool in our work supporting people in recovering their wellbeing." --Amanda Williamson. Founder and Director of Phew (Devon) - Promoting Health and Emotional Wellbeing
