About the Author
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The author shares numerous techniques for overcoming anxiety and related disorders: the 54321 technique, breathing exercises, scheduling worry time, desensitization to overcome fears and phobias, cognitive behavior therapy to tackle negative thoughts, dealing with thoughts that can lead to depression. These are all described in a simple, step-by-step manner, making it easy for readers to employ them on their own or with the assistance of a trained psychologist. The author also describes the physiological reasons for panic attacks. Includes a full reference list at the end. It's hard to believe so much information can be packed into such a small volume (188 pages). Full of handy self-help tips from a trained psychologist, this book is the cheapest form of therapy you are likely to get. I received this book in return for an honest review.
