An excellent introduction to the subject of how to observe your thoughts, recognize when they're false, and work to change them so they can serve you better.

This is like a mental health coach for your brain. We all get caught up in negative self talk and destructive thinking. This book shows you how to retrain your brain to stop the negative thoughts and gives you strategies to enable you to change those negative thoughts into something more positive. A simple, useful book.

This does exactly what it says on the tin:  it's a simple, straightforward guide to the basics of CBT that is very accessible and easy to understand.   It clearly explains the core concepts and includes lots of helpful, relatable examples.   There are many suggested exercises to help readers apply the principles to their own situation.  This would a great read for anyone who struggles with anxiety, low moods, and/or discouraging thoughts.   It's a very useful resource!

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

This book gave really simple examples of ways to change your everyday, even every moment thinking. When you change the small things, the whole day somehow feels better. Changing the negative associations in how you view the world creates a better world.

This accurately represents what it claims to be: super simple tips for confronting anxious thoughts, etc. I think it is very beginner-friendly so anyone without a psychology background and/or who has never gone to therapy will easily be able to follow along and understand. I wish it would have gone a bit deeper and provided ideas I haven't heard of before, but overall it is exactly what it claims to be (simple, easy to understand).

As a psychologist, I was impressed by this book. As a guide to CBT, it is thorough, yet concise. I believe many readers will benefit from the information and techniques provided…particularly when presented in such an accessible, “user-friendly” style.

Super Simple CBT is regarded as the gold standard in psychology for treating depression and anxiety. Learn new skills to help you manage negative thought patterns and anxiety to create balance in your life. 

Super Simple CBT is a wonderful and straightforward read. The steps are practical, easy to follow, and simple enough to get started right away. I appreciate the examples provided. They create a vivid image for the reader to connect with on a deeper level. You may be familiar with some of these techniques if you read self-help books often, regardless, I do recommend this book. It can teach you something new and provide gentle reminders. Thank you to NetGalley and New Harbinger Publications for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.

Super Simple CBT is an informative read for anyone struggling with anxiety.  The text is simple and not bogged down with complex jargon and very easy to understand and the techniques easy to implement,  It’s helpful to read how much our thoughts contribute to and cause our feelings and in turn how we can change our feelings by changing our thoughts.  Definitely a book I will keep on hand for days when my anxiety gets the better of me and when I want to access tools to help me manage and improve my moods and deal with life. 

Thank you Netgalley, New Harbinger Publications, Matthew McKay, Martha Davis and Patrick Fanning for my electronic arc of Super Simple CBT.

This book takes an empathetic approach and gives bite size approaches and allows you to have kindness and patience with yourself when dealing with life. This is so necessary for everyone to read in life. Highly recommend. Especially loved the reflection to true life to humanize my feelings and relate. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
