From the bestselling author of Change Your Thinking comes No Worries – the clear, compassionate and practical guide to understanding and managing anxiety and worry.
Anxiety and worry rob us of the ability to think clearly, enjoy life and function effectively at home, at work and in social situations. One in five Australians have an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives, and many more have periods of debilitating anxiety.
Using proven strategies from a range of psychological approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and metacognitive therapy (MCT), No Worries explains how worry and anxiety operate, and will equip you with the tools you need to release worry and anxiety. With plenty of real-life examples, exercises and experiments, this book will teach you to:
Identify and release unhelpful thinking and safety behaviours that perpetuate worry
Recognise and let go of worry thoughts
Effectively deal with the unpleasant physical sensations that can arise from worry and anxiety
Learn to manage panic attacks
Take back control of your life with these valuable techniques, and free yourself from debilitating worry and anxiety.
