The author is a clinical psychologist working in cancer and palliative care in the UK. He has over 20 years experience in the field and his book is based on sound clinical practice. It is supported by downloadable audioexercises and resources. I was attracted to this book because of the personal circumstances of family members and it did not disappoint. It seems to be a realistic book about what can be achieved to moderate your mood and improve your wellbeing within the restrictions of your own physical condition. Simple exercises to re-train negative thought patterns and other positive resources are presented in an understanding way. Much to try and lots to think about.
