We're all screwed up (and that's OK)
In the UK it is is said that 1 in 4 people has a mental health problem. This means that 3 in 4 don't.
This is simply not true.
We all have our screw ups.
Maybe what we should say is that 1 in 4 people is currently experiencing some kind of mental health problem that is getting in the way of their day-to-day lives.
In this down-to-earth, jargon-free book, Dawn uses her experience from working with hundreds of clients as a therapist, and from her own abusive childhood, to explore the problems we all experience as adults. She will help you realise that we are all screwed up, and that it doesn't stop you functioning. She will help you understand where common problems such as depression, anxiety and addictions come from, and give you some approaches to overcome them.
If you have a problem with a car, you get a mechanic to help you. If you have a problem with a muscle, you go to a physiotherapist. Why is it when you have a problem with your head you assume you should be able to work it out on your own?
Everyone is screwed up. Most people function perfectly well despite their screw ups.
