Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before? by Dr. Julie Smith


We are all, every single one of us, going to have a bad day. No one will sail through life never plagued with anxiety, stress, grief or feeling low. We all have our own rituals and coping mechanisms and sometimes, for the big moments, those times you may feel adrift, isolated or lost, those methods of self care won’t be enough.

This is where @drjulie comes in. A clinical psychologist on a mission to demystify mental health with millions of followers, a tik tok sensation. Her debut book is the number one non fiction book in the country, being pretty much at the top of the bestseller list since publication in January. In a sea of self help titles, Julie has struck a chord with readers globally and her ongoing literary success is a small reflection of that. 

Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before is that unicorn book, evidence based, rooted in research but written conversationally, as if Julie is sitting with you in a therapy room giving you the tools to reflect on your life and feelings. She offers practical solutions in bite-sized, easy-to-digest entries which make it easy to quickly find specific information and guidance. This isn’t a replacement for getting clinical help but is the beginning of finding mental and emotional strength and peace.

If we could, we would give a copy to every single person alive. The reviews online are some of the most moving posts, from teens to older adults who say this wonderful woman has changed their lives. Our heavily annotated copies remain next to our beds, immediately accessible to dip into. 

We are simply delighted to have had the chance to talk (and laugh a lot) with Julie, make sure to catch our chat over on IGTV later today. May have tried to persuade her to stand for Prime Minister, I mean come on how brilliant would she be!?!??

Thank you so much to @drjulie@michaeljbooks@elliehughes85@alinazari@gleamtitles for sending over the book and for all the help in arranging our author chat.
