Hi, is it possible to get digital versions of these manuals?
I’m sorry I don’t have digital versions.
Hello, I would like to order the manual but I am in Italy, do you ship to Italy? Please let me know
You can find more meditations on Kristen Neff’s website. You can also look for mindful self compassion classes.
My new book, The Shyness Workbook, will be available on Amazon in February. You can order it from Amazon. It is based on the CBT manual and also incorporates compassion focused therapy.
Can I purchase and work through the client manual to help myself with social anxiety?
You can definitely do that. However, my new Shyness Workbook will be published around the 26th and you’ll be able to buy it on Amazon. It might be a bit more interactive and it can help to assign yourself homework and write down your negative thoughts. I am also happy to send you a copy of the client manual. Where do you live?
Thank you so much!! I think I will buy your workbook instead 😁
