Sounds Like Misophonia: How to Stop Small Noises from Causing Extreme ReactionsDr Jane Gregory
You might not have heard of misophonia, but if you are often infuriated by the sound of chewing, breathing, snoring, a clock ticking, or any other specific trigger, you may have experienced it. In fact, it's thought that one in five of us have it.
Sounds Like Misophonia addresses what the condition is, how it manifests, and provides a guide to managing it. Written by clinical psychologist Dr Jane Gregory, who founded the first two misophonia clinics in London and Oxford, this is the first practical self-help book to make sense of the condition, and help you design your own treatment plan tailored to your unique experience. Using techniques from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Jane guides readers through evidence-based strategies and step-by-step exercises to review and adjust patterns of reacting to sounds.
With humour and understanding, Jane offers practical ways so you can get on with life in this noisy world. Jane is joined by contributor Adeel Ahmad, host of the popular Misophonia Podcast, who shares case studies from other sufferers around the world. There is no cure for the condition, but Sounds Like Misophonia helps provide solutions to living a fulfilling life, instead of fighting against it.
