Michael Neenan is a former Associate Director of the Centre for Stress Management and Centre for Coaching, Blackheath. He works in private practice as a cognitive behaviour therapist and coach. He is the author (with Windy Dryden) of Life Coaching: A Cognitive Behavioural Approach (2nd edn., 2014).
"The first edition of this book was a landmark publication in presenting a cognitive-behavioural perspective on resilience with Michael Neenan's characteristic perceptiveness and clarity. The second edition is even better and contains topical new material on stoicism, positive psychology and the use of central personal metaphors. An important update."
