For readers of The Resilience Project, fans of Brene Brown, comes the tried-and-tested method that has helped thousands turn anxiety into action.

What if you could turn anxiety into your superpower? Dr Jodie Lowinger - clinical psychologist, executive coach and founder of The Anxiety Clinic - is at the forefront of mental health practice and, in a world where approximately one in four people experience challenging anxiety, has directly helped thousands. Through her Mind Strength Methodology, and now in her first book, Dr Jodie offers a logical and practical toolkit using the best evidence-based techniques to:

- overcome fear-driven thoughts and behaviours and turn them into empowered action - break free from being bossed around by worry and your inner critic - build a resilient, high-performance mindset.

Woven through with relatable case studies, simple diagrams and illustrations, The Mind Strength Method challenges the stories you've been telling yourself and helps you to move forward in your life with enhanced confidence, resilience, happiness and wellbeing. It is a go-to guide for anyone who feels they are caught in fight-or-flight mode and a must-read book in the midst of uncertainty.

'Jodie has an extraordinary desire to help those struggling with anxiety. Her knowledge on the topic is quite remarkable, so too her drive to make a difference to people's lives.

'We live in a fretful age. Certainties are collapsing. Demands are multiplying. Anxiety is an epidemic. Luckily, Dr Lowinger has the measure of your amygdala.
