About the Book
If you have ever been told that you're 'too sensitive'; if you've ever felt overwhelmed by your emotions - as if they're controlling you and you can't seem to dial them back; if you've ever reacted in a way that you've later regretted, but you simply couldn't stop yourself at the time; or if you simply struggle to understand why you're feeling the way you are, then this is the book you've been waiting for. Drawing on her years of experience as a clinical psychologist, Dr Zurita Ona provides a clear and simple roadmap for every 'super-feeler' on how to avoid being hijacked by your emotions. Using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as aspects of positive psychology, you will learn how to distinguish between emotion-based behaviour and values-based behaviour so that you can step back from an uncontrolled emotional response and instead choose a more appropriate one. The result is an effective way to combat the feelings of loneliness and fear of abandonment so many super-feelers experience, as you learn to build and maintain strong healthy relationships, and to look within to identify sources of pain and struggle rather than placing outward blame. Along the way, you will become adept at skills such as self-acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, mindfulness, and conflict resolution. In the end, super-feelers will discover the truth that they are more than their emotions, and that no matter how intense the situation, they can always choose to act in a way that is consistent with their personal values, in order to experience fulfilling, loving and caring relationships.
