Don't like giving such low mark but after the supportive Low mood and depression version of a similar book in the series, which was very good. This one is SO judgemental, very much its your fault, this book seems to have a very negative bias, not supportive, just here are all the ways you #failed. Not one for me! There are topics covered in there that sounded from their titles like they would help but like in the real world, this was a book filled more with 'Must try harder' rather than, here are some things to try which might help.

If you have these conditions mentioned in this book and are feeling delicate, this is not a kind helpful book!!

For many people, health anxiety or hypochondria is a seriously debilitating mental disorder. It is very difficult to treat pharmacologically, but cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has had much success. This book contains an extensive and authoritative section on health anxiety. It follows the process used by health professionals and recommended by NICE to help sufferers. In my opinion, this is the best self-help reading available on the subject. Most books on CBT and anxiety disorder barely scratch the surface of health worries linked to depression. Indeed, one of the best guides to generalised anxiety has just three short paragraphs on hypochondria. And many GPs fail to understand it, or even worse - fail to treat sufferers seriously. If you have a problem with health anxiety, or are close to someone who does, buy this book. It will help you considerably and reinforce professional psychological therapy.

This is a great CBT reference book for any IAPT worker. Each chapter clearly outlines the characteristics of eack of the specific anxiety disorders. This is then followed by a step by step approach in tackling the disorder head on. The book is easy to read, and leaves out all the technical jargon associated with many of the current CBT books that I have read. This book would definately be a very useful term for both professional and non professional individuals with an interest in CBT or psychology.

A really excellent book for therapists as well as clients. Really simple language, and great ideas for managing and understanding different types of anxiety.

This book was recommended to me by my Clinical Supervisor (I am a counsellor) to help with patients suffering with OCD and other anxiety problems. It is a very useful tool to use in sessions and I recommend it to some of my patients. It is simple to follow and easy to read without making the subject matter too medicalised.
