In “How to Be Yourself: Easy Steps to Overcoming Insecurities and Strengthening Your Life” (published by Balboa Press) Simone Essex and Jane Briscoe present a practical guide to self-acceptance and happiness.
The genesis of the book came as a result of Essex’s own struggles with happiness.
“After experiencing personal struggles, I know first hand what it’s like to be unhappy and feel lost,” remembers Essex. “I took advice from my mum, Jane Briscoe, psychologist, to read many books about happiness. I had a thirst for knowledge and wisdom in this area. I knew there was a better way to live and that it was up to me to make the change, but I still didn’t know how.”
Then Essex and Briscoe attended the Happiness and Its Causes Conference in Sydney, Australia. The trip was an eye-opening experience. “It was at this conference that everything came together for me,” says Essex.
Essex and Briscoe are committed to helping others gain a clear understanding of who they truly are. “Learning how to be yourself is the first step towards living a happy and meaningful Life,” explains the duo. Essex and Briscoe were particular mindful to present their research in a succinct and easy to read format. While many books on self-realization are academic in style, “How to Be Yourself” is both accessible and comprehensive.
“I have sold hundreds of copies to my clients,” says Briscoe, “and because I am in direct contact with our readers I hear from them time and again how practical the book is and how the pictures, examples and exercises make our message so clear and easy to understand.”
In “How to Be Yourself” Essex and Briscoe deliver an empowering collection of techniques, combining the use of acceptance and commitment therapy, positive psychology, hypnotherapy and mindfulness. The book also comes with a hypnosis MP3 download to help reinforce the strategies offered throughout the guide.
“We want people to take action towards learning who they really are,” says Briscoe and Essex. “By embracing these techniques, anyone can experience authentic happiness.”
