Product Description

Review

'I firmly believe that this book could help sufferers take control of their anxiety. The book is written in a very sensible and practical way. There are lots of handy hints and tips given to each chapter. I ended up reading it from cover to cover.'

From the Author

Anxiety disorders are astonishingly common. They include Panic, Phobias (including Agoraphobia and Social Phobia), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. For many people self-help is a viable way forward and in Free Yourself from Anxiety we aim to show you, step-by-step, how to set up and follow an individually tailored self-help programme. The book is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which is the accepted treatment for Anxiety.

Free Yourself from Anxiety is divided into four parts.

PART ONE looks at lifestyle, because very often the way you live is contributing to Anxiety. By examining each aspect of lifestyle in turn and making simple changes you can get yourself fit and ready to tackle your Anxiety driven behaviours.

PART TWO takes you through the `behaviour' part of CBT and shows you how to challenge your Anxiety in a safe controlled way, by setting small goals that take you gradually towards letting go of anxious behaviours.

PART THREE looks at the `cognitive' part of CBT and shows you how to recognise your anxious thinking, challenge it, and ultimately change it.

PART FOUR moves on to some of the deeper issues that may be driving Anxiety and explains how to delve into these. We also suggest where it might be appropriate for you to seek professional help.

Our aim in this book is to be as comprehensive as possible. Each reader will be able to decide which aspects of the recovery programme they need to complete and which are not relevant to them. In addition we have only discussed proven safe techniques.

While we were writing the book we interviewed 10 Anxiety sufferers who are in various stages of recovery and with their permission we have used their words to illustrate our points throughout the book. Instead of made-up case histories you can read about the real-life struggles, successes and failures of our group of 10.

I really cant recommend this book enough! Im 21 years old and have suffered on/off with anxiety and panic attacks since roughly the age of 7. I wouldn't say my condition is as severe as some peoples however it is relentless and an extremely unpleasant and upsetting disorder. I personally think this book covers all severity levels of anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, and even depression (im not a medical professional, its just my opinion). It describes the disorders and conditions in real simple terms and to a very helpful and understanding level. The book provides step by step procedures on how to overcome the disorders and gives you very helpful, self help exercisers on combating the problems. Bit of a cliche saying but i literally never put the book down after i first picked it up, and i really am not keen on reading ! I cant express enough gratitude for the creators of this book, I've literally got my life back ! I was skeptical at first, but that was mainly down to my own pessimism, and im so glad i persevered and tried this book. I would definitely recommend this book, whether it is mild or a severe condition either you, or someone you know is suffering from.

This book was a journey of recognition. The scenes described were so familiar it was a relief to realise that what I had experienced was not uncommon.

The book was unpatronising, easy to read and understand and yet covered some very complex issues.

I particulalrly liked that there were a variety of methods suggested for helping yourself, not just one doctrine that had to be followed (which is usually what the medical profession offers).

I would recommend this book to all anxiety sufferers AND their relatives because one of the most stressful things is when people don't understand why you react to some situations in such a seemingly bizarre and extreme way.

Format: Paperback
I wish I had had a book like this when I had my first panic attacks. No one understood what I was going through, and no one, including the medical services, was able to explain what was happening and how it could be dealt with.

What everyone in this situation needs, and needs fast, are three things:
1. Reassurance that you are not the only one this has ever happened to
2. A concise explanation of the various forms of Anxiety and their symptoms; and
3. Help and advice which will set you on the road to recovery.

And this is what Free Yourself from Anxiety does. Using genuine case studies it shows that what you thought was affecting you alone is in fact quite common. It clearly and concisely explains the various forms of Anxiety such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic attacks, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) so that you can properly identify the problem. And finally it gives a properly structured road map to recovery by taking the reader, step by step, from facing their fears to overcoming them.

Written in an understanding and encouraging way, this book is the next best thing to having a twenty-four hour therapist at your side. If you have an anxiety problem, or you know someone who has, buying this book could be a life saver.

As a psychotherapist, I found this book to be extremely useful. The information is practical and is applicable to real life situations. It allows the client to take responsibility for the process thereby empowering him or her. It is thorough and has a strong application component, even addressing some of the more difficult issues which other books overlook, including OCD. This is definitely a book which I will refer to as well as recommend to clients.

Format: Paperback
I read this book because I know the authors - not because I suffer from Anxiety. I didn't really think it would have much relevance to me as I don't consider myself an Anxiety sufferer. But it was fascinating to discover advice that makes sense to me as a normal 30-something woman.

Which of us doesn't get knots in their stomach before going to a party? Who doesn't go pale and / or scarlet when everyone in a meeting turns to look at you?

This book shows how perfectly normal all of our physical, mental and emotional reactions are to challenges from the world around us, and that straight away makes it all a little more bearable.

If you then want to go on to work at aspects of your behaviour there is page after page of beautifully explained techniques to try. The authors' voices come through so clearly and they seem to genuinely want to reach every reader and help us to be more at peace with ourselves.

I recommend this book to anyone basically!

Format: Paperback
This book is likely very useful for those who have been officially diagnosed with a serious anxiety disorder. However, having bought it to combat general anxiety, I found it far too intense for my needs. Reading it actually made me feel more anxious at times, and the testimonials - while useful, I'm sure - seemed to come from people with very deep problems.
The description made me curious as to whether or not my feelings fell under the umbrella of a disorder, and while the book helped me identify this, it was at a different level.
If you're looking for a book on combatting anxiety, rather than overcoming a disorder, I would look to books about stress first before picking up this title.
