5.0 out of 5 stars The only book you need to read!, 8 April 2007
This is one of the best books I have read on stress and anxiety management for healthcare professionals. It outlines a proven strategy for helping to treat anxiety and is very clearly written. Everything is covered here - from previous research on anxiety, to a step-by-step description of a 15 part evening course on stress management.

Detailed information is given on all aspects of the 15 part evening class including the pre-course interview with students. I particularly like the idea that participants are referred to as students and not patients. This highlights the aim of the course which is that each student takes responsibility for their own treatment and applies the techniques in a way which is appropriate for them.

If you read no other book on anxiety and stress management, make sure you read this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A practical guide to coping with anxiety, 8 April 2007
I read this book from two perspectives - that of a person who has suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for many years. And also as a person who is now helping others to manage their own anxiety.

This book provides a very practical way to cope with anxiety. It uses the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach which is proven as a successful therapeutic method for treating anxiety and panic. The book is very action oriented and, through numerous worksheets, encourages the reader to try the techniques for themselves.

The exercises are deceptively simple but are very effective. I found that I had already used some of the techniques and this book helped me to develop them further and also reassured me that I was on the right path - both in how I cope with my own anxiety and how I support others who are in the same position.

This book is easy to understand and gives you the building blocks to manage anxiety and make the changes that will improve your life - highly recommended!
