Dr. Nancy Stella deals with six fear traps that bother most people in her book Fear Traps: Escape the Triggers That Keep You Stuck. Through personal experiences and years of counseling, she has developed the Courageous Brain Process (CBP). This process is a six-step program to create new neuropathways in the brain to change how you respond to fear. The book contains a chapter for each of the six common fear traps (Being Alone, Rejection, Confrontation, Being Ignored, Failure, and Fear of the Unknown). Not only does she explain the fear trap, but she also includes a real-life case study before she explains how to use the CBP to overcome the fear. Finally, at the end of the book, Nancy includes guided meditations for each of the six traps. This book is beneficial for anyone struggling in one of the fear traps.

Every fear trap has its triggers. Nancy Stella teaches her readers how to identify triggers and then moves on to solving the fear traps. In Fear Traps, Nancy shares her Courageous Brain Process (CBP) model. CBP allows those who struggle with a fear trap to create new neuropathways and overcome the vicious grip of the fear trap. Psychology can be a technical subject, but Nancy knows how to explain the topics that can be complicated. In addition, she has over twenty years of experience working with clients. As a result, this book is simple enough to help everyone who struggles with fear. Nancy’s compassion for those who suffer comes through in her writing. There are no condemnations in this book, only positive encouragements.
