This down-to-earth and easy-to-read book is a life-changer. Thousands of people, suffering from a wide range of anxiety disorders – from panic attacks and phobias to post-traumatic stress and obsessive thoughts – have already benefited from the many insights and psychological techniques it contains, and now you can too.

Packed full of useful information, How to Master Anxiety will not only throw light on the causes of your anxiety but, more importantly, show you how to control it. Its clear and practical advice is suitable for anyone who wants to conquer their own over-anxious behaviour – whatever it is – or to help others overcome theirs.

This book is a further wonderful aid. It throws, as it were, a rope to a drowning person. It gives the reader an immediate feeling that it is possible to take control again. And it is down-to-earth.

Ruth Morozzo, Footnotes Journal

With plenty of easy-to-learn techniques to help you relax, avoid ‘black and white thinking’ and change your perspective on whatever it is you fear, it also includes encouraging case studies to show how others have successfully mastered all kinds of anxious and phobic behaviour.

Essential information for every anxious person:

  • How anxiety and stress are closely related, how to recognise when you are under stress and what to do about it
  • What exactly is going on in your body when anxiety overwhelms you and why it reacts like this – understanding lessens the fear
  • A range of relaxation procedures to free up your brain and help you think more clearly
  • How to use the positive power of your imagination to manage your thoughts and feelings and change your experience of stress and in appropriate anxiety
  • A look at the three different levels involved in anxiety disorders
  • The natural survival mechanisms that you can harness to help you
  • Specific techniques for overcoming a variety of anxiety disorders, neutralising fears and other psychological traumas (including PTSD).

    As a qualified doctor, I find patients are relieved to hear that there is an evidence based approach which can seriously and genuinely help them in a time when we so badly need an approach which is effective at providing real results for people to get the real help they need to live happier and calmer lives. Different styles of therapy/ counselling/ psychotherapy are inundating the public to know what is best to do and are commonly drawn to the various approaches which are never ending in their duration, often ineffective (even damaging), costly and lack defined end points such as psychoanalysis for example. I highly recommend this book above all others on mental health and wellbeing for any sufferer or practitioner in the field. I have found the techniques to be particularly useful as a practicing doctor with my patients and I have no doubt that the Human Givens can provide a solution for debilitated patients and practitioners who feel hopeless. Be a part of the revolution.

    I’ve given this groundbreaking work to friends and family who have, at one time or another, struggled with anxiety. It has helped each and every person who read it go on to address the roots causes of their ailment, which the book masterfully lays out. One of the very best books on the subject available.
