This book shows you where that place is, and how to use your greater freedom from self-criticism to take your life in a new direction. Gentle, witty, and wise–the book feels like a conversation with a helpful friend. If self-esteem is a struggle for you, do yourself a favor and read this book.”

Overview of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Self-Esteem

You are more than you think. With this evidence-based guide, you’ll learn to break free from the self-critical stories you’ve created about yourself, and develop the self-compassion and self-acceptance you need to reach your full potential.

We all have stories we’ve created about ourselves—some of them positive and some of them negative. If you suffer from low self-esteem, your story may include these types of narratives: “I’m a failure,” “I’ll never be able to do that,” or “If only I were smarter or more attractive, I could be happy.”  Ironically, at the end of the day, these narratives are your biggest roadblocks to achieving happiness and living the life you deserve. So, how can you break free from these stories—once and for all?

Based on evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), this comprehensive guidebook presents a systematic approach that empowers you to overcome self-doubt, embrace self-acceptance and acknowledge your imperfections. It assists you in recognising and nurturing your strengths while helping you unlock your maximum capabilities. Additionally, it provides insights on how to take decisive steps towards the life you desire, even when doubt arises. fostering a compassionate and understanding perspective of your multifaceted self.
