Episode 17: The Self-Help Book Club – First Edition, with Dr Nik Kendrew
In this episode, Rachel is joined again by Dr Nik Kendrew, self-confessed self-help bookaholic to chat about books and apps that have made an impact on their lives recently.
We chat about how reading self-help books sometimes gets a bad press and how we, personally get an immense amount of value from them. Amongst other recommendations, Nik talks about ‘The Little Book of Resilience’ by Matthew Johnstone and the effect that this book has had on him, from understanding how we all put on a ‘show face’ to taking hold of the principle that ‘It’s OK to not feel OK’.
We also talk about the enormous pressure that GPs are under and the importance of looking after yourself, seeking help where necessary and identifying some of those thoughts we believe are facts but are, in fact, just thoughts after all.
