A guided journal with psychological exercises to develop self-understanding.

One of the trickiest tasks we ever face is that of working out who we really are.
If we're asked directly to describe ourselves, our minds tend to go blank. We can't just sum ourselves up. We need prompts and suggestions and more detailed enquiries that help tease out and organise our picture of ourselves.

This book is designed to help us create a psychological portrait of who we are with the use of some unusual, oblique, entertaining and playful prompts. The book is filled with exercises to help us develop our self-understanding within key areas of our lives - helping to create a rich picture of our existence.
