The intricate, attractive designs are illustrated in the popular zentangle style and are suitable for adults and young people, in individual or group work. The worksheets use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and art therapy techniques to address outcomes including improved self-esteem, emotional wellbeing, anger management, coping with change and loss, problem solving and future planning. The colouring pages are designed for relaxing stress management and feature a complete illustrated alphabet and series of striking mandala designs.

Preface. Introduction. Part I. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Concepts. Art Therapy Concepts. 1. Sense of Self, Self-Esteem Building. 2. Managing Emotions, Coping with Loss and Change. 3. Problem Solving, Reflection, Goal Setting. Part II. Stress Management. 4. The Alphabet. 5. Mandalas.

The author sums up the core principle of CBT therapy in a very readable, clear an concise way... Guest's lovely, intricately patterned backgrounds and frames are reminiscent of the current spate of adult colouring books and allow the sheets to appeal to different age groups... One of the things I love about this book is that the author's drawings invite the user to "have a go", "make their mark" and not worry whether they are "artistic" or not... I have certainly enjoyed using this book myself, as well as inviting clients to use it to help them explore their own thoughts, and would happily recommend it to other therapists.
