    Hi Dave
    I'm reading The Anxiety Cure by Dr. Archibald D. Hart right now. I personally believe that the more info that I have from a bunch of different sources is better than trying to find one that will 'cure' me.
    It's a pretty good book with a Christian based approach.

    Hi,
    Reading a book written by Claire Weekes has helped me so much recently i cant tell you!
    She has given me hope and made me see that this anxiety can be beaten and you can recover!

    Take care xx

    I read 'Feel the Fear ...... and do it anyway!" It's not solely about panic; more about fear and how we let it control our lives without even realising how frightened of life we have become. The author is Susan Jeffers and it's available on Amazon. Some of it's a bit 'Pollyanna' but there are some helpful sections.

    All the best

    Hi Dave,
    I have been looking into books for a long time now and have found Claire Weekes to be as good as any that i've read, I bought a copy of her book 'Self-Help for Your Nerves' for 3.00 off Amazon.

    If you discover any more usefull books, please keep us all informed.

    Be happy

    Will[^]

    Best one I have read is the CBT book by Sam Obitz titled Been There? Done That? DO Thiis! The TEA form exercise in it has changed my thinking and life for the better.

    Claire Weeks method was the one that helped me, my counsellor reccommended it cos distraction wasn't working for me. It helped me accept my anxiety and taught me how to get on with my life.
    This method may not work for you but its worth a read, you never know!!
    Good luck!

    I liked claire weekes and the acceptance part helped me a lot but adding in the TEA form exercise from Sam Obitz really got me over the hump. Everyones different but both of these methods helped me get where I am today
