Lockdown help

These are difficult days &  many people are struggling, so I thought I would look at some self-help tools available cheaply or for free that may help.

Firstly, this newly developed depression app is available for free here. I have had some feedback from clients about it & have been told that it is helpful: https://www.humangivens.com/2020/03/29/lift-depression-app/

Free lockdown yoga:available  online here.

Books

This book on meditation was written by someone who used meditation successfully to manage & eventually overcome their long-standing difficulty with anxiety.

These  books were written by the people, who trained me & again I have been told by many people that they found them helpful:

anxiety book

depression book

Relationships:

And, of course my own book on making relationships work: 5 Steps to Lasting Love: an evidence-based guide is available free as an ebook & to buy in paperback here.
