Publisher's Summary

A practical guide to understanding, managing and overcoming anxiety and panic attacks by best-selling author and GP Harry Barry. Do you or does someone you love suffer from general anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, a phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder? Or are you a health-care worker treating people with these disorders? Then this audiobook is for you. 

Dr Harry Barry combines a deep knowledge of the inner workings of the mind and brain with a wealth of experience treating patients as a GP to offer a way out of the fear, worry and shame of anxiety. In this wise, supportive book, Dr Barry explains clearly and simply what it is about our minds and brains that generates the symptoms of anxiety. Through a series of case studies based on his real-life experiences treating patients, he explains and demonstrates how to use lifestyle changes, mindfulness, exercise and CBT techniques to cope with these symptoms and ultimately feel better.

very repetitive but perhaps by design

understanding some of the inner workings of the brain and hearing from the collection of stories from others with similar issues seems to be helping.

Tremendously Helped my Anxiety

I've suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for several years. Several occasions I went to the hospital to have my heart checked, but it turns out the route cause was my fear and anxiety. This book narrated and written by Dr Harry Barry helped me to understand my condition and how to cope with it. I haven't had a panic attack in over a year and any time I felt symptoms I am able to handle them and remain relaxed until it passes. I would recommend this book to anyone who has suffered with anxiety but also to everyone, as its comprehension can help a struggling friends/family members.

The best book on anxiety

A truly exceptional book on anxiety better written, read and explained than anything I’ve read previously. Dr Harry has a gentle narration style that does a great job in connecting with you. Yes he’s Irish and there are the accent differences but it didn’t bother me one bit, actually I rather liked it. Anxiety is a serious, debilitating and wholly unpleasant experience that most people hide and try and cope with. This book explains it simply. I’m making great progress as a result and highly recommend it. A brilliant and complete book on anxiety. Dr Harry Barry (yes that’s his real name) thanks for doing this you’re a top bloke. Loved it.

Changed my life!

After suffering with panic attacks for over 10 years, I found a technique that works! Dr Harry Barry has revolutionised the way I think about my panic and anxiety. Instead of trying to distract myself or run away from my fear (aka panic,) I embrace it. Narrated by Barry himself, the audiobook is also easy listening. I would suggest listening to the whole book and then going back to the mosh relevant bits to listen again.

Decent Book

Some good information about how our brains work but otherwise no clear information about exercises or strategies to implement specifically
