7 Change Your Thinking with CBT: Overcome Stress, Combat Anxiety and Improve Your Life
Edelman, Dr Sarah Vermilion 2006 0091906954 / 9780091906955 Soft Cover New 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
New paperback. RRP 12.99. All of us experience complicated thoughts and feelings as we negotiate the day and these feelings can be difficult to manage. Sometimes we are aware that the way we think contributes to our difficulties, but don't know what to do about it. Change Your Thinking is soundly based on the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), the standard psychological tool used by therapists. The aim of CBT is to develop realistic thought patterns to help us respond better to upsetting emotions. In this book, Dr Edelman demonstrates how to dispute that nagging voice in your head and deal more rationally with feelings of anger, depression, frustration and anxiety. The book also offers sensible suggestions for more effective communication and for finding happiness, something that is within everyone's grasp. CBT can help you change your thinking and make a difference to your life - beginning today. pp. 336. 058138

8 The Reading Cure: How Books Restored My Appetite
Freeman, Laura Weidenfeld and Nicolson 2018 1474604641 / 9781474604642 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Brand new. Hardback with dust jacket. RRP 16.99. At the age of fourteen, Laura Freeman was diagnosed with anorexia. She had seized the one aspect of her life that she seemed able to control, and struck different foods from her diet one by one until she was starving. But even at her lowest point, the one appetite she never lost was her love of reading. As Laura battled her anorexia, she gradually re-discovered how to enjoy food - and life more broadly - through literature. Plum puddings and pottles of fruit in Dickens gave her courage to try new dishes; the wounded Robert Graves' appreciation of a pair of greengages changed the way she thought about plenty and choice; Virginia Woolf's painterly descriptions of bread, blackberries and biscuits were infinitely tempting. Book by book, meal by meal, Laura developed an appetite and discovered an entire library of reasons to live. The Reading Cure is a beautiful, inspiring account of hunger and happiness, about addiction, obsession and recovery, and about the way literature and food can restore appetite and renew hope. pp. 260. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 307874

When Conrad fails to return from a science conference abroad, Eleanor's first thought is one of relief; he might finally have discovered her affair. Or perhaps he's simply given up on their marriage, tired of having the less successful career. As the days pass and his absence in the family fold grows stronger, Eleanor begins to makes sense of what has happened to their lives to get them to this point. Leaving his family in Manchester to scrabble for clues, unsure of their feelings towards him, Conrad loses himself in the cold foggy streets of Bologna. Ill, confused, and desperately trying to avoid becoming a whistle-blower by a blackmailer, he revisits the stages of his long marriage to El, from their early happiness to the grief and anger he now feels. As Conrad and Eleanor examine their marriage, they move closer to an understanding of what it is that matters most to each of them. 305859
