Her simple coping techniques work wonders. Apr 16, Kendra rated it it was amazing I was having a ton of anxiety for a week or so, so I bought this book. I was feeling really stressed and depressed and had a pit in my stomach all day long for days.

I lost confidence in my abilities. I also experienced a few panic attacks. The book says those symptoms are all the I was having a ton of anxiety for a week or so, so I bought this book. She reassures that you can indeed still function. Just float through it. The book helped me understand what was happening to me and easy ways to help these unpleasant feelings go away.

The book reassured me that those symptoms I was feeling were just a result of the adrenalin, nothing was wrong with me, and it happens to a lot of people. It gives four quite simple, but effective techniques for breaking the panic-adrenalin-panic cycle and helping my nerves to desensitize: First, face your feelings. Instead of shrinking from the upsetting sensations, zero in on them and analyze them.

Second, accept. When I feel those panic feelings, I need to change my scared mood into an accepting mood. Third, I should let upsetting thoughts "float" out of my mind because they are just thoughts and not give them credence.

The last technique is to let time pass. Just keep doing the first three techniques. Anyway, the book was very reassuring and easy to read and understand.

That is merely the prequel. When the actual attack hits, it feels like the moment someone jumps out and scares you in a haunted house, except it lasts for 10, 20, 30 minutes at a time — words flying through my head unattached to any meaning, limbs tingling as if blood supply has slowed to a drip. Right now, as coughs around the world are observed with quiet uncertainty Cold or Covid?

The “Claire Weekes” Approach to Anxiety

She is considered by some as the pioneer of modern anxiety treatment via Cognitive Therapy. She continues to be noted for her books on dealing with anxiety disorders. Weekes found that many of her patients suffered from anxiety disorders, such as agoraphobia , panic attacks , phobias , generalised anxiety disorder , and obsessive-compulsive disorder. In her books, she frequently used the term "nervous breakdown", despite it being unscientific and unnecessarily alarming. She even referred to people suffering from nervous breakdown as having a "weakness of character".
