Although primarily aimed at helping with stress and anxiety, this
audio CD should be a useful resource for therapists of all types,
since the relaxation techniques taught will help in any situation.
The CD contains 7 relaxation techniques, all of which are good;
with particular highlights (for me) being a good guide to abdominal
breathing; the excellent Coping Induction; the interesting Walking
Relaxation; and the clever Brief Relaxation. I found the American
accent a little off-putting at first but soon got used to it. Ross

I did like the simple relaxation techniques on this CD. These include amongst others; progressive relaxation, a walking relaxation method and abdominal breathing. 1 also thought these could be more suitable for clients who would balk at guided anew-age' type relaxation/meditations.Jason Fletcher, NCP Fidelity Summer 08
