Her advice is short, sweet, simple and to the point. I beleive will be effective for the vast majority of people who are willing to accept this simple shift in approach. Read this before you spend lots of money on expensive therapy. Well worth the money!
Dr. Weekes speaks with an easy and gentle voice. This is no lecture from a highbrow intellectual. This is real help from a someone who cares about the people she speaks with. She says that she has spent her professional life devoted to treating many people with anxiety disorders and that comes across in her presentation. She does not sound like someone reporting from cold research. These are the nuggets from her experiences. Her advice is simple and easy to integrate into your daily habits right away. The simplicity of her ideas does not dilute their power. I feel confident in saying that you will gain a lot from listening.
This is by far the best book I've ever read on anxiety disorders. It thoroughly explained the 3 different stages of anxiety, specific anxieties and how to deal with acceptance, the anxiety cycle, negative thought processes and more. For someone who has been dealing with a generalized anxiety disorder for the past 5 years, finally, someone can explain exactly what I'm going through! No doctor or therapist has ever explained it like this.
I went through this 30 years ago. It isn't perfect but it kept me sane for those years. My anxiety and depression are back, but listening to the Dr. from down under, help me calm down again. Haven't found anything beetter to deal with panic attacks.
Claire is cool. She knows how to talk and you can hear compassion in her voice. This book is about acceptance. But acceptance is a precursor for overcoming anxiety. I type overcoming anxiety into google and many people confirm.
Excellent book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dr Weekes she really knows about anxiety She has been helping so many people .. Thank you
I will start reading iinmediatly
radio broadcast like in format; personal and advisory in message delivery; some useful information and tips for managing anxiety and panic attacks--I found advice to be helpful in reducing severity of panic attacks
I think I could *read* this material and like it, but I really couldn't deal with the author's voice. It was much too melodramatic for me. Possibly, this is why most authors don't narrate their own books. You might want to listen to the sample before purchasing. :(
I enjoyed this listen because the author was reading her own work. It was has if she was speaking directly to me.
Dr. Claire Weekes is very insightful and a wonderful pioneer in her field.
I plan on listening to this work several more times.
I would like for audible.com to offer more from this author.
This old girl is pretty awesome.What she wrote then is still solid now and can be very helpful plus her delivery is hilarious.
