Simon shares his experience of overcoming severe mental health problems twice in very different ways. These experiences helped him learn that engaging in a battle is necessary to discover freedom.

There is a need to take every thought captive to bring us to that freedom but recognise that not every thought is a good thought. This is not about replacing negative thoughts with happy thoughts, but rather tackling the root issues and untruths that can captivate your mind.

In his darkest moment, Simon allowed these thoughts to both take him captive and feel hated - captiv-hated! However, throughout this book, there is hope and help to find your way to freedom.

Simon Cooper, with his wife Laura, are leaders of the Refresh Centre in Blackpool – a house for retreat and training with a focus on inspiring a mission lifestyle. After experiencing many challenges in life, and fighting mental health, Simon loves to share inspiring testimony from his life. His story shows how God guided him through challenges that have given him insight into the physical and spiritual battleground of the mind.
