Description

The U-Turn is a book about being happier. Written by leading psychiatrist Dr Conor Farren, it is a book for those of us who live with everyday negative emotions – anger, depression, fear, anxiety and jealousy – which keep us from enjoying life. The ‘U-Turn’ is the name of the journey the book takes us on – from emotional upset to self-understanding. The author helps us to get a good grasp of our emotions, of our personal make-up and of our relationships. The next step is to take action to bring about positive change in our lives.

The U-Turn:

  • Provides us with an understanding of the most common mild psychological issues, such as anxiety and depression, and shows us the role of low self-esteem in these.
  • Looks at ways for us to fight back and discover that life can have joy and purpose.
  • Contains “Think, Feel, Act” psychological exercises at the end of the chapters, which helps us to apply these U-Turn principles to our own lives.

    An inspiring and interactive read, The U-Turn is the unique result of the author’s life experience and his work as a psychiatrist.

    ‘Honest and inspiring, Conor Farren’s wonderful book highlights the pathway to positive thinking and fulfilled living.’
    Miriam O’Callaghan

    The U-Turn…offers a path through the forest of worry, anxiety and fear that confronts us all from time to time.’
    Prof. Patricia Casey
