About the book: 
Leandie du Randt is a popular Afrikaans actress as well as a registered psychometrist. Stemming from her passion for helping people and based on her own experience, Comfortable in Your Own Skin  is specifically aimed at teenage girls to help them to develop self-confidence and to be the best version of themselves possible. Written in a relaxed style that teenagers will relate to, much of the book contains wisdom and lessons that apply more broadly too.
Presented as a three-week course with practical exercises at the end of each day, the subject matter covers topics of particular importance to teenagers such as alcohol and drug abuse, peer pressure, eati ng disorders, body image, and the deeper issues of thoughts, inner self-confidence and spiritual well-being. The practical advice will help teenage girls to think diff erently about themselves, to be more confident, and to handle and report abuse. Although there is a strong spiritual message, the author doesn’t ‘preach’ and makes it clear that it’s for anyone, whatever their belief system.
