Overcoming Childhood Trauma by Helen Kennerly

This book has been described as intuitively and insightful. It uses Cognitive Behavioural techniques to deal with the emotional problems which can arise from difficult early years, with advice on how to deal with stress and anxiety, anger, intrusive memories, mood swings, self destructive behaviour (including the urge to self harm). It gives a structured way to make sense of your experiences, find hope for the future, and to create better relationships as an adult. Some readers find that the letter you are asked to write to yourself (at the beginning of the book) is more helpful if done when you are some of the way through the process, but generally speaking this is an extremely helpful book to be used in tandem with counselling and therapy.
