Would your life be easier if you had more confidence? Do you habitually think of yourself as stupid, fat, old, ugly, or a loser? Do you use antidepressants, food, alcohol, or other substitutes to mute your negative feelings? Do immature emotions like guilt, shame, and self-pity prevent you from living every day to the fullest?

Dr. Sheenah Hankin, renowned psychotherapist, points the way to a confident life free from self-criticism, anxiety, and immature anger. This handbook will teach you new ways of thinking and acting, and you will learn to retrain your brain to manage your emotions and put your problems into perspective.

Complete Confidence makes a big promise, and Dr. Sheenah Hankin is poised to deliver. During her twenty-plus years as a full-time psychotherapist, she has helped hundreds of clients with the Winning Hand of Comfort: a clear and concise prescription for dealing with everyday situations, from resolving conflicts to ending unhealthy habits like overeating, complaining, and procrastinating. The five simple steps of the Winning Hand will teach you how to calm down, clarify your thinking, challenge your blame habit, comfort your negative feelings, and achieve confidence.

Free of psychobabble, and full of thought-provoking quizzes and clear advice, Complete Confidence gives you all that you need to fulfill your potential and face life's challenges.
