Publisher's Summary

Gaslighting

What it is, how you can spot it - and how you can break free

He's the charmer - the witty, confident but overly controlling date. She's the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He's the neighbour who swears you've been putting your rubbish into his bins or the politician who can never admit to a mistake. 

Gaslighters are master controllers and manipulators, often challenging your very sense of reality. Whether it's a spouse, parent, coworker or friend, a gaslighter distorts the truth - by lying, withholding, triangulation and more - making their victims question their own reality and sanity. Dr Stephanie Sarkis delves into this hidden manipulation technique, covering gaslighting in every life scenario, sharing:  

  • Why gaslighters seem so 'normal' at first  
  • Warning signs and examples  
  • Gaslighter 'red flags' on a first date   
  • Practical strategies for coping  
  • How to coparent with a gaslighter  
  • How to protect yourself from a gaslighter at work  
  • How to walk away and rebuild your life    

With clear-eyed wisdom and empathy, Dr Sarkis not only helps you determine if you are being victimised by a gaslighter - she gives you the tools to break free and heal.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

USA based guidance and info

Helpful book to identify gas lighting behaviour, but it’s very frustrating as it is heavily geared towards the USA and constantly references the downloadable pdf for help and advice...which again is only useful in the USA. I’m glad I’ve listened to it and there are some helpful hints to follow but I’m not sure the UK is ready for this phenomenon!
Good ways to identify gas lighters in the work, home, family and even yourself. On the whole, an interesting read and a potential life saver to some! Literally!

Please read this to help you heal

If you think or suspect you are living with a narcissist or have been gaslighted - please read this book.

My gaslighters criticism lead me to believe constantly I had no worth and I was always wrong.

I cannot begin to say how grateful I am that I found this book. I learned the word gaslighting from my therapist and had no idea what it was or the impact it had on my life. This book has been critical and fundamental to commencing the process of healing. This book has given me a different perspective on the way I have thought about myself for the past two years. I am now able to go over past scenes and revisit them with a different lens - not the one that completely blames myself for everything I did or didn't do.

The only 'disappointing' thing about finishing this book is what can I read next and how do I ever learn to trust anyone again.
