MEDIA REVIEWS

"There are a number of `self-help' books available on all sorts of subject matters but what I like about this book is that it covers a multitude of physical and mental health conditions by just using the concept of the `smirch'.... I think it is a very clever and innovative approach to dealing with the negative thoughts or `head chat' as I call it in my work..." - Nicola Gwilym, School Mentor, Dovedale Primary School, Liverpool

`This book will prove invaluable in helping young people to become more resilient and cope with any difficult thoughts and feelings." - Ben King, Inclusion manager, Steyning Grammar School

"This book is fantastic and fun to read and will be a great resource for young people. It reassures the reader that difficult feelings are normal but that with some practice there are ways of coping. As a parent the book taught me a lot of things that will help me to support my teenage son when he feels anxious." Sue Duncan, Parent of two teenage boys
