Mixed anxiety and depression is the most common mental health issue in Britain, affecting one in four people at some time in their lives. This book combines the principles of mindfulness with research from the field of clinical psychology to help you examine your life and your emotions in a thoughtful way. It offers guided meditations and other practices to aid you in balancing and controlling your emotions.
