This is the book for anyone who: forever finds themselves expecting the worst - both from themselves and others; finds the very thought of public speaking, travelling on the tube or confronting a difficult situation sends them into a blind panic; despite real achievement still finds themselves hankering after that ever elusive something that will make them truly happy. "Wearing the Ruby Slippers" is the first guide to adopt the revolutionary principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - the leading therapy in the treatment of unhappiness and anxiety disorders. Clinical psychologist Dr Kristina Downing-Orr shows how, by using the exercises and tasks included, we can all learn to respond positively and confidently to even the most difficult situations - and all in just 9 weeks. Drawing on the well-loved characters of "The Wizard of Oz", this book will show how to replace old negative thought patterns with positive ones.
Just as the cowardly lion would never have believed in his courage had he not been given his medal for bravery and while the scarecrow only realised his intelligence when he was awarded a diploma, Kristina Downing-Orr shows how, once given the right tools, we are all capable of true happiness - it's simply a matter of getting the habit.
