3.0 out of 5 stars what if ....., 28 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am grateful for this person writing this book. It is always great to hear about people who have overcome panic.
She talks about how she got rid of her panic by addressing a fundamental fear under the panic. She believes the panic is diverting her from looking at a fundamental fear, and that once you decide to really look at that fear, or find it, the panic will lift. This is a novel approach and very interesting. The best bit of the book in fact. She gives the impression that she did this and then her life was now free of panic attacks. Following on she talks about how occasionally she had panic attacks but now labels them life shocks! Explaining that these 'shocks' were not as bad as the attacks (accept the panic attack she had on a mountain!).
The author claims to have read loads of books on panic and none of them really helped her. And yet she gives tips of how to deal with panic that you often see in those other books. Such as encourage the panic; 'come on, lets get this over with', making yourself get on with life. She talks about how she had to push herself to do things; like get on a boat even though she was scared. This does sound very similar to approaches that other authors on panic talk about. The idea of pushing your self, perhaps even going through the fear (panic) again and concquering your fears by realising you can get through it.
It is worth buying this book to read about her idea that panic is hiding a fundamental fear and if we look at that the panic goes. She gives a step by step guide on how to find that fear. It was also interesting and great to hear about how her life had changed after panic. It's always encouraging to know that people can overcome this. I personally am one of those people. Though I used a mixture of FasterEFT and techniques from a book called The Power of Focusing: Finding Your Inner Voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars the anti anxiety toolkit rocks, 2 Jun 2012

This book is fantastic. It is small and lightweight, so it can easily be carried around with you. The content though is not lightweight. There is so much great information here that can seriously help reduce stress and anxiety. I'm amazed at how the author has condensed it down and fitted in so many brilliant techniques. Personal favorites are EFT (try fastereft), byron katie and the emotive journey.
You can tell that this woman has really done her research and must be a very skilled and highly competent therapist. I have ordered and read so many books on panic and anxiety I think this may be my favourite and most helpful one so far.

This review is from: Community - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I love, love, love this comedy series. So clever, almost every line is incredable. They pack in so much in such a short space. The characters are adorable too. This as well as Spaced is my favourite comedy. Can't wait to see the second series.

1.0 out of 5 stars This film is embarrassingly bad, 3 Oct 2011
This review is from: Conversations With God [DVD] (DVD)
I was a big fan of the Converstaions With God books and so was very keen to see this film. It was such a dissapointment. It's just terrible. The film is really over indulgent and poorly made. It's like those films from the 80's in which the director/producer assume the audience to be a little thick, and so state the obvious all the way through. i could go on but I will keep it simple, it is probably the worst film I have ever seen.
