Tackling one thing at a time, and tolerating some other things being temporarily set aside, creates much more scope for change. Imagine trying to disentangle the knot of cables behind your television. If you plunge in with both hands and pull in all directions the cables are likely to become even more tangled and knotted.

It is often thought that this capacity must be part of our make up, but just like all of the other patterns described so far, it can be learned. Many things contribute to resilience, the most important of which are having caring and supportive relationships and using them when we face difficulties. Alongside this openness to being helped by others, resilience requires a readiness to take care of oneself and to persevere when faced with the challenges of living. If we can accept that life is sometimes difficult and inevitably changes over time, we are more likely to be able to see beyond our immediate circumstances and stay optimistic about the future.

However, ‘feeling better’ and ‘everything’ can be difficult to define and therefore difficult to achieve. IPT will help you to focus more carefully on what ‘feeling better’ will involve and how that can be achieved. So: • Set yourself a realistic timescale to work through this book – around ten to twelve weeks is usually about right – and pace your efforts accordingly. Some people will work through the chapters more quickly, and others will prefer to take their time, perhaps going over a chapter more than once.
