Resilience is the ability to cope with and recover from difficult situations. It includes our capacity to make the best of things, deal with stress and rise to the occasion. We all have this ability, though not always as much as we’d like. This engaging, practical book draws together scientific understanding, real life examples and proven methods in describing how you can develop seven essential skills that help your resilience grow.
Here’s what people are already saying about this book:
“Practical and clear with strategies that work,
this is, by far, the best book I’ve read on resilience”

Full of useful wisdom that helps us cope with the challenges of life, this highly readable book is both a resource for self-care and guide for practitioners Dr Alan Kellas, Psychiatrist and specialist in Nature-Based Mental Health Care.
This timely and important book is packed with brilliant, practical ideas to help us respond constructively to whatever life throws at us. Recommended. Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness
After working through the programme described in this book, I had an emergency admission to hospital. Being encouraged to see challenging situations as opportunities to practice using resilience tools, I asked myself ‘what would a story of resilience look like here?’ and applied my resilience toolkit. Doing that transformed a potentially horrendous situation. These tools really work. Thank you. Heather Thompson, Personal Development Coach, www.positivelycoaching.co.uk
