Many of us live in fear — perhaps the fear of being unloved, the fear of not being good enough, or the fear of losing something. Sometimes it can feel like we’re scared to be vulnerable, and when we are overwhelmed by this fear of fear, the voice of reason can be hard to listen to. It can be easier to cope with anxiety attacks if we understand that the pain is not in our imagination, that there is a reason for it, and that there are tools to help us deal with the aftermath.

This new edition of a bestseller (80,000 copies sold of previous editions!) has been revised to reflect current research and practice in terms of treatment, response strategies and diagnostic criteria.

This practical guide to self-treatment is intended to help individuals suffering from panic or anxiety disorder to start to self-manage their condition.
