Product description


'Simple, lucid advice on how to accept your anxiety' Matt Haig, bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive.

--Matt Haig, author

Reads like chatting with an old friend; one with wit, wisdom and experience
Laura Lockington

--Brighton and Hove Independent

'Sarah's advice is very sage: if one is prone to anxiety, as many of us are, it is futile to expect to be totally rid of it forever. It will come back, but it is possible to tame it. She encourages the reader to be kinder to themselves, live in the moment, and accept their anxiety as an occasionally troublesome, yet integral part of their own being. Deeply personal yet eminently practical, this accessible and engaging e-book should prove extremely helpful to anyone trying to cope with anxiety.'
 Dr Ian Williams, GP and author


'Rayner's delicate, compassionate exploration ... will resonate loud and clear with anyone.' Publishers Weekly

Carefully crafted and empathetic Sunday Times

Brilliant... Warm and approachable Essentials

A sympathetic insight into the causes and effects of mental ill-health My Weekly

`Sarah Rayner explores an emotive subject with great sensitivity.Sunday Express

'Delves deep into the importance of love and friendship' Manchester Evening News

'Colourful and resonating ... also intensely emotive and even educational' Yorkshire Evening Post

'Incredibly compelling... Beautifully written and heartbreakingly honest' Novelicious


'This is a great book: readable, practical and, most importantly, compassionate. Sarah Rayner gives a clear explanation of the common symptoms of anxiety and panic that affect so many lives. She then goes on to give sound advice as to how to cope with these ongoing feelings. This entails a series of strategies that encourage understanding of the anxiety rather than its suppression, aiming to give control of these complex emotions back to the patient. It s impressive that she admits to her own anxiety issues, and without embarrassment shows how they have affected her life, how she has sought help over the years, and how she continues to deal with them. The fact she has written this book shows how well she has embraced her demons, able to get on with her own creative life. I will be recommending this book to my patients.' --Dr Patrick Fitzgerald

About the Author

'Simple, lucid advice on how to accept your anxiety' Matt Haig, bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive.

A warm and supportive little book to help ease worry and panic - new edition for 2018.

Drawing on her own experience of anxiety disorder and recovery, Sarah Rayner shares her insights into this extremely common and often distressing condition with compassion and humour. She reveals the seven elements that commonly contribute to anxiety including adrenaline, negative thinking and fear of the future, and explains what causes worry and panic to become such a problem for many of us. Illustrated by examples and photographs from the author’s own life and backed by an online support group, since its launch in 2014 this companion to mental good health has helped thousands of sufferers across the world. Now it’s been updated for 2017 to include more insights from the author, and dozens of bite-size suggestions from readers and group members who share what’s worked for them.

If you suffer from panic attacks, a debilitating disorder or simply want to spend less time worrying, Making Friends with Anxiety will give you a greater understanding of how your mind and body work together, helping restore confidence and control.

Sarah Rayner is the British author of five novels including the international bestseller, 'One Moment, One Morning'.

As a novelist, Sarah is known for tackling difficult subjects such as bereavement, infertility and mental illness with empathy and insight, but her latest books are non-fiction. 'Making Friends with Anxiety' is a little self-help book written to help enable people who panic and worry to regain confidence and control. The series now includes 'More Making Friends with Anxiety', 'Making Friends with Anxiety: A Calming Colouring Book' and 'Making Friends with the Menopause'.

Sarah has also written two more light-hearted novels - 'The Other Half' and 'Getting Even'. Originally published in the early noughties in the UK, these have been fully revised and updated by the author both came out in 2014. For many years Sarah worked as an advertising copywriter in London, but she now writes fiction full time, and lives by the sea in Brighton with her husband and stepson.
