Three out of four adults will feel overwhelmed by stress at some point in their lives. Although stress is a very subjective condition – some people thrive on a certain amount of it – one thing is certain: too much stress, if you feel unable to cope with it, can make you ill. Dr Tim Cantopher has diagnosed and helped hundreds of people with stress-related illnesses. He will help you to understand the causes of your stress (past and present), and to recognise the people who may be making it worse. This book offers treatments and strategies to manage the stress-related illnesses you may be suffering – whether physical or psychological – and gives you advice on getting, and staying, well. Written in the author s trademark style, blending simple but astonishingly astute insight with straightforward but astonishingly effective strategies, this book will put you back on the path to wellness as you embrace a gentler, kinder life.
