This book helps a great deal as a supplement to CBT and reading lots of other anxiety books. I find it especially helpful when I'm in a place where I'm unable to read, but can only listen to books on tape. Dr. Weeks helps to calmly talk me off the ledge if I think I'm going to have a panic attack.
To the point, basic and understandable. Comforting to hear the voice of reason almost like a mother figure rather than reading words on a page having it driven home by voice was very effective for me. Highly recommend.
"Dr Weeks really understands and helps"
I was recently very anxious and depressed. So anxious in fact that i was unable to read a book ,so downloaded this audio version of books i've owned by her in the past.Some years back i owned the cassette version of this, but either way this download is convenient and SO helpful
Any of the other titles by Dr Weekes
She really understood (she has passed away now) the symptoms, often frightening,of nervous illness.She will explain the effect that adrenalin has on your body and unreality and depersonalisation and then the natural progression into depression and finally the journey towards recovery
If you are currently suffering through the symptoms of nervous illness and are bewildered by your frightening thoughts and feelings, i promise you that this book will explain to you what you are going through. You will gain lots of understanding about why you feel unwell and will learn that your body is behaving perfectly naturally to the stress it is currently experiencing. I can't praise Claire Weekes enough.
"Helped me within days"
I have had severe anxiety since the beginning of the year, I wasted so much time and money when I should have gotten this from day one! Purchased this this after my first setback which was so close to recovery and after a week I am almost back to normality. Dr Weekes explains anxiety in a simple but effect way and teaches her patients how to fully accept their nervous illness....'loosen and accept.' I listen to the audio books anytime I feel I am too anxious and she quickly reminds me to relax and accept not to fight or avoid. I recommend her work to anyone! Paul David's book 'at last a life' is a great book as well to overcome anxiety, his recovery was based on Dr Weekes work as well and is a little more up to date.
