Working on the Frontline of Mental Health is an account of the day-to-day work in psychological therapies, highlighting not only the complexities clients present but also their remarkable and moving stories of recovery after many years of adversity.

Steve Sheward, a CBT therapist working on the frontline in the NHS and private practice, presents an overview of different psychological presentations, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and panic disorder, amongst others. Each chapter provides a detailed description of the latest cognitive-behavioural therapy approaches used to help clients overcome psychological challenges which is paired with compelling case studies that demonstrate their application. The book also outlines the challenges of continuing to deliver therapy during the COVID pandemic, as well as the demands placed upon the profession and the psychological challenges experienced by therapists.

This book will be of interest to a variety of mental health professionals, especially those trained in CBT, along with those who have personal experience with mental health problems and the general reader.

Steve is a consummate professional and there is much to be learned from his case studies. His writing is engaging and highly readable, reminiscent of Yalom. I strongly recommend this book for practitioners and patients alike." - Rhena Branch, author and BABCP accredited practitioner, trainer and supervisor in the UK.
