"This is a great balance between psychoeducation around narcissism and self-help around healing from these abusive toxic relationships"

"An excellent resource for survivors and therapists"


"Dr Sarah Davies takes you through a clear explanation of what narcissism is, how to spot it, and what behaviours I may be unconsciously doing that mean I am an easy target for narcissists. Lots of "aha" and "oh my gosh" moments reading this book. Her style is supportive so you really feel like she is gently taking you on a journey to decouple yourself from toxic relationships and behaviour, giving advice and support so you can take steps to get yourself to a better place. There's lots of really valuable, actionable advice on how to heal because it's so traumatic to be around narcissists and even those who have narcissistic traits. Highly recommend for understanding clearly what is so confusing (being on receiving end of narcissistic behaviour) and for starting to heal from that trauma."
