A fantastic book and an ideal training companion that can easily fit into your kit bag. Drop the struggle provides a tool kit that enables you to challenge thoughts and feelings and use them positively to obtain the skills required to achieve your goals, transforming the impossible into the possible

I worked with Alison, implementing the acceptance and commitment approach outlined in Drop the Struggle in relation to my leadership career. The Yellow Tail Moth story is particularly poignant. When I accepted the journey and my own vulnerability as a leader, I progressed quickly into my current chief of staff role with an ease and confidence I had never felt before. I now have a huge toolkit of strategies for when I get knocked off course as I no doubt will in the future. The impact of this approach on my leadership journey has been immeasurable.

Drop the struggle gives you a great set of tools to help on your journey. Very clear and relatable, it is sure to be of use to anybody looking to improve the mental side of their life.
