It's Not Always Depression: A New Theory of Listening to Your Body, Discovering Core Emotions and Reconnecting with Your Authentic Self Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of It's Not Always Depression by Hilary Jacobs Hendel, read by Cassandra Campbell. Includes a PDF of reference materials.
We were all taught that our thoughts affect our emotions, but in truth it is largely the other way around: we have to experience our emotions to truly understand our thoughts and our full selves. This is why we should think not only about cognitive behavioural therapy or medication but also about our emotions when addressing psychological suffering.
In It's Not Always Depression, pioneering psychotherapist Hilary Jacobs Hendel reveals the most effective techniques for putting us back in touch with the emotions we too often deny - methods which can be used by anyone, any time, anywhere. Drawing on stories from her own practice, she sheds light on the core emotions (such as joy, sadness and fear), defences (anything we do to avoid feeling) and inhibitory emotions (anxiety, shame and guilt) and how understanding their interaction can help us return to mental well-being.
This is the basis of accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy: it accelerates healing through having an emotional experience in the here and now. It allows you to reacquaint yourself with your feelings, to recover a more authentic self and to be more calm, curious and connected.

My only criticism is that it is somewhat repetitive in places.
However, the foreword doesn’t do the book any favours. It’s a lot of hot air from someone who wanted to be heard. Don’t put the book away after reading the foreword, I almost did and I would have regretted it.
