Depression and low mood affect a significant portion of the general public. Sadly, those with depression often experience other problems such as low self-esteem and relationship difficulties. But however depression is affecting you, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help. CBT is used widely in the NHS and has been found to be extremely effective at helping people overcome depression and low mood.

It also contains information on some of the latest treatments such as Mindfulness, Behavioural Activation and Compassion-focussed Therapy.
With the chapters on different problem areas and techniques written by the leading experts in that field, this book is an invaluable resource not only for those living with depression and their families, but also for CBT therapists and IAPT workers.
