Everybody has anxiety in the face of threats and dangers, and this is a perfectly natural reaction. But sometimes anxiety or a particular worry can get out of control and develop into disorders such as chronic and excessive worry, panic attacks, phobia, obsession and other forms of anxiety disorder.
In this book each of these forms of anxiety is described from the point of view of the reader who experiences them, rather than from that of psychologists or neurophysiologists, whose explanations of how the brain functions in anxiety hardly help the sufferer.
You will gain insight into your own personal anxiety problems and learn how to cope with them yourself, without medication, by carrying out exercises selected for their effectiveness. With an understanding of your anxieties and with the help of questionnaires, you can create a personal program to bring anxiety under control.
