Anxiety affects more than two million Australians, making it twice as common as depression. Yet awareness of anxiety-related disorders such as post-traumatic stress, panic disorder and social phobia is still unacceptably low.
In this third edition of her bestselling book, Bronwyn Fox helps us to understand the symptoms of anxiety disorders and teaches us how to manage panic attacks and anxiety with meditation and a mindfulness-based cognitive technique.
Her method is based on decades of experience counselling people in Australia and overseas, and running her award-winning programs and workshops. Bronwyn writes with compassion and authority, having experienced panic disorder and agoraphobia for five years.
Using case studies and up-to-date research findings, she also explores the deeper causes of anxiety disorders, and shows us how working with self-esteem contributes to our long-term recovery.

After my last panic attack I got this book out of the library to help. I am now buying a copy for myself and a friend. It was simple to read and very direct. Bronwyn Fox has a panic disorder herself and the book is written with this in mind, letting you know that you are not alone. I would recommend it to anyone, it has helped me greatly.
