Publisher's Summary

From Dr. Nicole LePera, creator of "the holistic psychologist"—the online phenomenon with more than two million Instagram followers—comes a revolutionary approach to healing that harnesses the power of the self to produce lasting change.

As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical and spiritual wellness that equips people with the interdisciplinary tools necessary to heal themselves. After experiencing the life-changing results herself, she began to share what she'd learned with others—and soon "The Holistic Psychologist" was born.

Now, Dr. LePera is ready to share her much-requested protocol with the world. In How to Do the Work, she offers both a manifesto for SelfHealing as well as an essential guide to creating a more vibrant, authentic, and joyful life. Drawing on the latest research from a diversity of scientific fields and healing modalities, Dr. LePera helps us recognize how adverse experiences and trauma in childhood live with us, resulting in whole body dysfunction—activating harmful stress responses that keep us stuck engaging in patterns of codependency, emotional immaturity, and trauma bonds. Unless addressed, these self-sabotaging behaviors can quickly become cyclical, leaving people feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, and unwell.

In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers listeners the support and tools that will allow them to break free from destructive behaviors to reclaim and recreate their lives. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, this is a celebration of empowerment that will forever change the way we approach mental wellness and self-care.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Do the work!! Do it!

This book has completely changed my life. It gave me so much perspective on why I do things I do, helped me to understand others and show compassion towards them rather than judgement.
If you’re looking for a book to flip your world upside down and make you become the person you know you can be read this book!
Only downfall was I could t stand the voice of the girl reading the book. But get past it - it’s worth it.

Insightful And Easy To Understand

This book is full of wisdom and opportunities to reflect on the areas of your life in which you may need to heal from. The chapters on the inner child and trauma bonds were extremely fascinating to me. What I love most about this book is that it’s very easy to understand, it’s not just a step by step self help book nor is it all full of psychology jargon. It really makes you think!

A must Read for anyone !!

I have read a lot of books about the topics covered in this one, but these books were more for counselors, psychologists, and other mental health workers. This book is really targeted at anyone looking to take charge of their well-being. She explains a lot of the new research in simple easy to understand information accompanied by examples from her life and her client. I highly recommend this book, and already offered it to a dear friend of mine, I really hope this is the beginning of a paradigm shift in the mental health field.
