If you feel an intense pressure to be perfect, this evidence-based workbook offers real strategies based in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) to help you develop a more balanced and healthy perspective.

Do you hold yourself-and perhaps others-to extremely high standards? Do you procrastinate certain tasks because you are afraid you will not carry them out perfectly? If you have answered “yes” to one or both of these questions, chances are you are a perfectionist. And while there’s nothing wrong with hard work and high standards, perfectionism can also take over your life if you let it. So, how can you find balance?

With this workbook, you will identify the causes of your perfectionism and the ways it is negatively impacting your life. Rather than measuring your self-worth by productivity and accomplishments, you will learn to exercise self compassion, and extend that compassion to others. You will also learn ways to prioritise the things that really matter to you, without focusing on attaining fixed goals.
