    Story
    "Above and beyond amazing help for those struggling"
    Where does Hope and Help for Your Nerves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this number 1 in all of the self-help recordings I have listened to over the years. Why? Because it is simple, yet effective help for those suffering from anxious brooding and a depressed, stressed mind and body. This book is about accepting where you are right now and moving forward, not wasting time looking back and pondering how you got this way in the first place.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As this is an old recording, some of the talk can seem a bit dated, but I like that. Claire Weekes voice is calming and supportive. She keeps you in the here and now, not ruminating about the horrors of your past.


    What did you learn from Hope and Help for Your Nerves that you would use in your daily life?

    Claire Weekes simply states what is happening to make you feel anxious and then why you fear moments of becoming anxious and how you get caught in this cycle of anxiety-fear-more anxiety because of the fear. When you start accepting your feelings in any given moment, not tensing up and becoming afraid of your anxiety, then you can begin to heal. This really is life changing audio book for me. I cannot believe how simple it is to start. Simple in action, but hard to do at first so you keep practicing until it becomes a habit. You can recover from nervious conditons if you are accepting of your emotions and thoughts and patient with yourself. Best Wishes!

    "Ageless wisdom"

    I have wrestled with anxiety and depression for a couple years now. I'm using several different approaches to get well. This audio book has had the most impact; I revisit it often

    Story
    "Really helps!"

    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.

    Story
    "Very comforting"

    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"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hope and Help for Your Nerves to be better than the print version?

    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


    What other book might you compare Hope and Help for Your Nerves to, and why?

    Any of the other titles by Dr Weekes


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    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.
