Bridget Galton. But there are no tips on Coronovirus between the pages of How To Feel Good In Difficult Times - rather her 21st book of survival strategies for a crisis is a collection of everything she has learned from decades of life experience, and as a therapist. I hoped to help people going through a bereavement or job loss, but it could be any crisis.
In the midst of great stress, self doubt can creep back in - and so can knee jerk responses to punish ourselves or retreat into unhealthy behaviours from sleep problems to eating disorders and addictions. She urges readers to embrace the crisis and look for the positive in change, however unwelcome.
It may be a series of things that have gone wrong. The book aims to give them tools, to stimulate ideas of what they can do to prepare and keep themselves in good mental health. The more positive and confident we are the more likely we are to see a positive outcome. My little book was a translation of American ideas into ordinary English with everyday examples that people could manage. Lindenfield uses visualisation techniques and dramatherapy.
It brings you back to the person you are or want to be. Another is to analyse a problem by writing it down, or to choose imaginary aspirational mentors in history or real life who have gone through similar trials and can make you feel positive. You can end a friendship even after 35 years or consign them to the Christmas card slot. There are people who exchange only bad news rather than good and that plays on our general sense of ability to cope.
Think what their special strengths are. I knew what to do, I had developed my own theory of emotional healing, the different stages you go through. It becomes a habit. I had to isolate myself, let myself grieve, be selective about who I saw and talked to, I had a strategy that helped tremendously. Examine them, ask is this true or false? Instead of focusing on the negatives, focus on the uplift. Gael Lindenfield is a psychotherapist and author of 21 personal development books.

Books by Gael Lindenfield
Confidence is crucial. I discovered this truth early in my own life when my own hit rock-bottom. Luckily I received help and was inspired to take training to help others. Confidence building quickly became my speciality and as I was working with meagre resources, I started to develop and become committed to self-help techniques.
