“In search of Words” by Oliver West builds on his successful “Footnotes” programme which many people will have enjoyed and profited from.
As a professional artist, printmaker and university lecturer, he has the experience to pass on his knowledge of visual-spatial technique to people of any age or any background.
The methods he promotes are simple and extremely practical.
But they are presented with his own special charisma. He is a brilliant teacher. His enthusiasm can inspire a whole school.
Dyslexics listening to him are astonished to hear someone talking to them in a language they can understand.
For non-dyslexics his words, written or spoken, are a revelation. A whole new world is suddenly opened up for them. Here is a way to contact creative minds and, what is more, to rouse one’s own creative skills.

Despite the fact that OCD can have a devastating impact on a person’s life, getting real help can be a challenge. If you have tried medications without success, it might be time to explore further treatment options. You should know that mindfulness-based approaches have been proven-effective in treating OCD and anxiety disorders. They involve developing an awareness and acceptance of the unwanted thoughts, feelings, and urges that are at the heart of OCD.
Combining mindfulness practices with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), The Mindfulness Workbook for OCD offers practical and accessible tools for managing the unwanted thoughts and compulsive urges that are associated with OCD. With this workbook, you will develop present-moment awareness, learn to challenge your own distorted thinking, and stop treating thoughts as threats and feelings as facts.
Written by an extremely accomplished team of bipolar experts, The Bipolar II Disorder Workbook is designed to help you manage the recurring depression, hypomania, and anxiety that can arise as a result of your condition.

This is the first self-help workbook available specifically for individuals diagnosed with bipolar II disorder.
