What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Dr. Odessky has made it her life’s work to alleviate the anxiety her clients and others suffer. She is tireless in this effort, and I sincerely honor this result of her work. Her knowledge, self-assuredness, and good humor will provide you immediate comfort and relief. Helen has been working for years to develop and perfect her UNLOCK program, and it works. She has come up with something revolutionary here I have never seen before: not in graduate school, not in treatment, and not in decades of reading and researching anxiety. Read this book, and you will find everything you need to beat anxiety once and for all. It’s not a trick, or a quickie one-off. Instead, it is a comprehensive, easy-to-apply system for anxiety eradication. Keep this book close. Take your time and work through it. Trust Helen to guide you through.

"I just had the pleasure of reading Dr. Helen Odessky's new book, "Stop Anxiety from Stopping You" and the short answer is that I give it a double thumbs up. As an anxiety treatment specialist, I am always looking for tools and techniques to move my clients compassionately and effectively through panic and other forms of anxiety. This book offers practical, evidence based exercises to assist anxiety sufferers in freeing themselves from the devastating symptoms of untreated anxiety. I recommend this book to anyone looking for actionable steps that they can take to teach anxiety to back off and quiet down. "

Dr. Odessky's book is knowledgeably written from a therapist's perspective with an emphasis on sharing relatable examples, offering practical tools, and giving hope to those struggling with anxiety. As a practicing therapist, I greatly appreciated that much of the material is grounded in evidence based effective strategies and that the solutions and tools offered are clearly written in a way to be understood by a wide range of people looking for concrete advice.
