That's So: The Certainty Myth by Dr Toni Lindsay (an interview with Toni!)

How is it the end of September already?! I’m excited to share this months That’s So episode, because today we’re chatting about The Certainty Myth by Dr Toni Lindsay

** a content warning: while we share a lot of laughs, we do touch on the subject of death, so please take care while listening **

Dr Toni Lindsay is a clinical and health psychologist who has been working with both adults and adolescents for over 10 years. Currently she is working at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse in the oncology service and is a specialist in the care of adolescents and young adults with cancer. 

In her third book The Certainty Myth, she shares her knowledge as well as stories from her patients, to help give readers the tools to help manage the anxiety around uncertainty. It’s not full of jargon (which I loved!) and has a relaxed and friendly tone. I can be a bit of a brat, but I immediately jumped on board, and I got a lot out of it!

In our interview, Dr Toni talks about her work, the inspiration behind writing the book, her love of metaphors, and what she hopes readers will take away from reading The Certainty Myth.
