GET A GRIP: Your Two Week Mental Makeover motivates readers to start their own serious self-examination, get out of their individual ruts, and get moving in the right direction – all within a 14-day program. With a combination of traditional therapy techniques and the author's "tough love" mantra, this book offers on-the-go treatment and the keys to emotional problem-solving for the reader's lingering hang-ups. It also includes the top 20 most commonly asked questions during a therapy session, thus helping the reader meet all the challenges head-on with a strengthened sense of self-determination. 

GET A GRIP is for people who have found that neither quick fixes nor expensive therapy have worked for them. It takes the reader through the steps of what would happen in analysis – therapy sessions with a psychologist or therapist – albeit swiftly and inexpensively. Everyone has things about themselves they would like to change, relationships they would like to smooth out, a past they would like to be more at peace with, or an existential question that they find themselves revisiting. Not everyone comes to therapy with career-changing questions or tons of baggage from childhood trauma – sometimes it can just be about wanting to be happier, less stressed, and more balanced.
