Dear teenagers of the world, it’s not supposed to be like this.

Teenage years have always been fraught with exam and relationship pressures. The mental health stats took a tumble when we added filtered images, social media and cyber bullying. Then along came 2020, and the epidemic of anxiety gave way to a full blown pandemic.

Enter a new lexicon of PPE, social distancing, furlough and bubbles. Overnight, growing up became a lot harder.

Bottom line, the world has become a scary place. ‘Fear’ - a tiny word for a massive emotion - has sunk its teeth into far too many young people. With pandemic pandemonium set to continue, the good news is that lockdown doesn’t have to mean meltdown. It’s time to turn the tables, rise above the noise and fight back.

A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless is the new book from Suzie Lavington and Dr Andy Cope. Written with teenage girls in mind, it is part of a wellbeing movement. A ‘quiet revolution’ going on inside our heads. A call to action supporting an uprising of mental health and human flourishing by equipping young women with knowledge and strategies, enabling them to thrive in a world that’s hell bent on breaking them.

With content based on the science of Positive Psychology, A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless is evidence based, but with the big words removed and replaced with common sense and practical tips so that when the world does its worst, teenagers may bend but they won’t break.

Quite simply, it’s about readers signing up to being their best self on the understanding that once you sort things out between your ears, you become an example of what an awesome human being looks, sounds and feels like. It shows in your behaviours, which enables you to cope with whatever life throws your way.

A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless is a gathering of life’s cheat codes. All simple, all do-able, and now all wrapped up and accessible for teenage girls. The premise; apart from the occasional ’low’, your life is supposed to be EPIC. A 4000-week blaze of glory! In short, it’ll help teenagers find their BRAVE.


A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless will be available wherever books and ebooks are sold, priced £10.99.

About the authors:

Suzie Lavington’s search for the secret to deep-down confidence was born out of the simple fact that in her teens and twenties, she had none. And when you’re trying to make a living as an actor, that’s far from ideal.

Sick of missing out on a bazillion opportunities thanks to her nerves and anxiety, Suzie set out on a path to discover the cause of those feelings. . . and to kick them into touch once and for all.

Every single gem she uncovered on that little quest has been poured into this book (along with many more from the bonkersly brilliant Dr Cope). She’s beyond chuffed that it’s been published ahead of her own girls, Amelie and Remy, reaching their teens. They are by far her proudest achievement, and if they can grow up in a world where self-esteem, confidence and kindness in girls are more abundant than they are today, then she can shuffle off this earth one very happy mama.


Dr Andy Cope is the UK’s one and only Dr of Happiness, which pretty much makes him the total opposite of all the other doctors you’ve ever met. While they’ve been trained to work out what’s wrong with you, Andy’s PhD has been focused on what’s right with you, what makes you come alive and how you can be at your best more often.

He describes A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless as long overdue. Non-patronising personal development for teenage girls – it’s what they want and it’s what they need.
