Dorothy Rowe shows us how to have the courage to acknowledge and face our fears - only through courage can we find a sustaining happiness. Fear is the great unmentionable. We fear loss, bereavement, old age, death, rejection, failure - most of all we fear annihilation of the self. Yet all of this we keep to ourselves, afraid of being thought weak. Denying our fear of self-destruction, around which our entire sense of self is built, can have profound effects upon ourselves and those around us in later life. It can lead to physical illness, like anorexia, or to mental problems, such as panic attacks, depression and schizophrenia. In "Beyond Fear" psychologist Dorothy Rowe explains how to recognize the need for change and how to bring it about.

'This is a most extraordinary and valuable book and Dorothy Rowe is a most extraordinary and valuable person. Not only is she phenomenally wise, but she imparts her wisdom in a kind of prose poetry that moves, enlightens, reforms, beguiles and educates all at ones.' Fay Weldon 'Dorothy Rowe's is the calm voice of reason in an increasingly mad world. Buy this book.' Sue Townsend 'Dorothy Rowe has a unique ability to tackle our most fundamental emotions and issues with her innate wisdom, common sense and quiet compassion. In a market saturated with pop psychology paperbacks with their quick-fix jargon, she reminds us that we are both the creators and thus also the destroyers of our deepest fears and looks beyond dependency to encourage us to find our own solutions' MEERA SYAL
