Repetitive negative thinking is a symptom of almost all mental health conditions and is now affecting so many more people since Covid took over our lives. Most of the students on my Positive Living courses believe it is something they cannot change. But Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Positive Thinking experts have taught us that it is, to a large extent, a bad habit which we have learned over the years and which can be managed much better. We were not born negative thinkers.
Drawing on forty years’ experience of supporting and counselling adults, a Psychology degree and seven years of teaching Positive Living groups, this book lays out, in ordinary, non-psychological language, what has worked well with my classes. It is clear that the more control we have over our thinking the more positive and happy we can become.
