From the bestselling author of Highly Sensitive People in an Insensitive World

Shame might be far from the first thing that comes to mind when you think about what's causing your problems. Shame is hidden, and rarely something we talk about, but it can underlie challenges that we deal with on a daily basis, including anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.

This book will help you understand what shame is, how it arises and, in turn, how to overcome it. With exercises in each chapter, it provides tools to reflect on, confront and free yourself from shame. The book also includes a questionnaire to assess how much shame impacts you.

Be kind to yourself and rediscover your empathy for yourself with Confronting Shame.


I read this wonderful book four times. This insightful book is very easy, comforting and understandable to read. Ilse's knowledge about the topic, shame, is so clear. I want to read it again - I would say it's changed my life.

I have been avoiding this theme for ages knowing that it is my deepest issue. I bought the book 2 weeks ago. It has stirred up so much inside of me that I had to pause for a few days. The book is wonderful, written with a gentle language. Thank you for opening up the theme of shame.
