How to Find the Words for Tender Conversations

«

‘This gentle-hearted, engaging and intimately readable book is so full of wisdom and compassion. Everyone should read it’
Nigella Lawson

‘Kathryn Mannix has a gift for cutting through the noise and helping us realise what is most important. In a world that never stops talking, this book celebrates and demonstrates the curative power of listening. It is powerful, humane and wise’
Julia Samuel

‘This is a beautiful book … Too often people want their friends and relations to take all the difficult talk to a therapist, there has to be more than the professional listeners who know how to have a mutually impactful beautiful, tender conversation. This is a book for everyone … I actually feel listened to by reading it’
Philippa Perry

‘Kathryn Mannix is our modern-day prophet … This is an essential book for anyone interested in themselves and their fellow humans’
Greg Wise

‘I adore Kathryn's writing. Always sensitive, always thoughtful, an essential read for those looking to connect’
Cariad Lloyd

‘Kathryn Mannix is a natural born storyteller, and there is so much wisdom, tenderness and love packed into this profoundly beautiful book … Her words brim with grace. I loved this book so very much.’
Rachel Clarke

‘The book’s greatest strength is not just the information it shares, but the pure humanity it shows; the halting, fearful, imperfect conversations between people who are all doing their best and sometimes not getting it right. The gems of wisdom apply to all situations, whether someone is at the end of their life or has had a bad day at work … Compassionate, warm and wise’
The Times

‘Like having a long and rewarding conversation with a really good friend … Perhaps the most important component in all of the chapters, however, is the telling of stories … As with Mannix’s first book, there are many moving tales within these pages … Wise, gentle and profound’
Joanna Cannon, The Guardian, Book of the Day

Om forfatteren

Kathryn Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses. Having qualified as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist in 1993, she started the UK's (possibly the world's) first CBT clinic exclusively for palliative care patients, and devised 'CBT First Aid' training to enable palliative care colleagues to add new skills to their repertoire for helping patients. Her first book, With the End in Mind, was a Sunday Times bestseller.
