"Risa Williams does an amazing job at breaking down the complexities of self-esteem. The tools she uses are clear and concise, with relatable examples that make it easy for anyone to connect with. This book teaches people how to engage in the metacognitive process, or thinking about their own thinking, which is crucial to shaping our perceptions of ourselves."

"This book is full of ideas and tools that are easily explained to arm us with creative and strategic ways to grow ourselves and overcome the challenges of being human! These are tools we carry with us on our journey, to change our mindset (The Good Enough Zone), our mouth (The Self-Talk Meter), our priorities (The Time Parameters), and strengthen our Inner Heroes. And there are helpful worksheets to aid thinking about and using the tools in a way that will work for you. If low or fluctuating self-esteem is an area you struggle with, or you know someone who does, this will be invaluable."
-Trevor Stockwell, Leadership coach and book author
"The Ultimate Self Esteem Toolkit is certainly aptly named. It provides a wealth of strategies and practical exercises to reframe your thinking. It's a guide you can revisit time and time again which an approachable narrative. I particularly enjoyed the neuroscience nuggets which provided the opportunity to learn something new and be reassured that the methods covered in book are framed by scientific research. I'd recommend this book for sure."

"I love this book. Full stop. I wanted to read and review this because I struggle with self esteem (who doesn’t?) and I have read my fair share of “self help” that didn’t stick. This DID STICK. The skills and methods taught here are super innovative, simple and motivating. I can’t wait to regularly reference this when I need a pick me up. Highly recommend!"

"I absolutely love this book. I love the neuroscience nuggets which give important information without using baffling/complex terms. I love the way the book teaches you why we all tend to think in certain ways and then gives workable strategies as to how to make changes. A really great book, quick to read and will be so good to return to regularly to refresh the learning."
