Always beating yourself up? Telling yourself you’re wrong or stupid or thinking you’re not as good as other people?

This DVD demonstrates bestselling author and therapist Professor Windy Dryden using CBT with a client who suffers from these very problems. Observe how he expertly guides the client to understanding how their current life strategies compound his problems and then how he guides him to a constructive route to solving them.
