Hope and optimism
on 6 April 2015
Claire was a master in her field, she has helped countless people through the bewilderment of anxiety based conditions by teaching them how their own body works and showing them that they are not 'going mad' despite how some of the severest symptoms feel.. she has helped so many rise up from the dreaded downward spiral of anxiety/agoraphobia and depression without pills, or with, if they choose.
'I am beyond help', 'I am too far gone', 'I have suffered too long to have any hope of being well again', 'it's been so long since I was well, I've forgotten what it felt like'.. have you ever said any of these? Or all of them? If so, please read this, you will need no other book as this lady's teachings and deep compassion surpass all others
Her books were my bibles to which I constantly dipped in and out of throughout my own long, lonely battle with these conditions, they were a lifeline
This is one of the earlier prints of her books which still contains the old terminology, I prefer this to the revised versions, I found this version even more reassuring, maybe because it emphasizes how many years this magic lady devoted to helping those of us who needed her, in days when we were almost in danger of becoming the 'forgotten few'
