Product Description

Review

The therapist will find this a valuable bibliotherapy tool when treating anxiety and depression. It is also an indispensable source of psychological knowledge on worry and its treatment for all mental health practitioners. It should be required reading for any student of psychotherapy. If I could choose only 10 clinical texts for my library, The Worry Cure would be one of them! (The Clinical Psychologist)

This book offers practical and powerful tools to reverse your worry and transform the quality of your life. (Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken The Giant Within AND Unlimited Power)

I recommend this book for professionals and patients alike. Very well written and the introduction chapter grabs your attention from the start. All worriers will recognise themselves when they read this, but more importantly can really be helped to understand what keeps the worry going and then how to manage it better.

By Doc Barbara TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 5 Aug. 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a detailed and practical self-help book which will prove useful to many people whose worries are taking over their lives. The approach asks the reader to examine deeper issues such as personality by means of questionnaires, mentions unproductive ways of handling worry and offers seven steps to overcoming anxiety. It then deals with five specific worries: social, relationships, health, money and work. There are many useful tips such as repeating an underlying fear until it becomes boring rather than threatening. Yet I felt that it focussed on people so caught up in worry that they may consult a therapist and so was less useful to those of us who muddle through the ups and downs of life but sense that we are worrying a bit too much about matters we cannot control or about trivia. For these more ordinary concerns, Mindfulness could be a better option and Dr Leahy's book does recognise the worth of this practice and its value in everyday life.(I am not a medical doctor.)

The book is for sure helpful in reducing your worries but I found it in the beginning too lengthy and theoretical. Once you move past it - brilliant! Definitely worth a read!

A book that should help you toward a calmer and more fulfilling existence if you are ready for the challenge of changing!

The book is absolutely excellent, it is a form of therapy for worriers pretty much.

I liked the fact the book shows you ways of controlling the about of worry you have on a day-to-day basis and how to deal with it without feeling like your getting no way, it basically tells you the best ways of getting out of fits of worry and panic safely.

A very kind young lady bought the book for me because I used to be terrible for worrying about things, usually things which I didn't need to worry about; when I read the book I was worried that it wouldn't help me and I would be wasting my time reading it but when I got reading it, I couldn't put it down and I had to keep reading on to find out the next tip.

I tried out some of the exercises it suggested to do for people who worry a lot and it really helped to worry less about silly little things and in actual fact, it made me realise that it was actually okay to worry an di could control it.

I hope this helps!

Unfortunately this book did not live up to my expectations. It didnt seem to realise that there are more worries than just the worry about how people perceive you. It didn't help me at all and I only got half way through the book before giving up.
It was written in an odd magazine sort of a style which I found hard to read.
I wouldn't recommend this book and have just given it away to a charity shop. Maybe someone will get something from it....but not me!

The best self help book I have read! It has helped me to look at my worry and areas in my life in which worry is elevated. It gives tasks to help change thinking habits and has taught me so much about my worry and anxiety.
