Anxiety causing disorders are scary, confusing and beyond most people's comprehension. The idea of this deliberately concise book is to give you the information and understanding that you'll need to begin your mental health healing journey as quickly as possible.
Most sufferers of anxiety-causing disorders have little idea why their mind is seemingly working against them. They may understand the mechanics of anxiety but not why they suffer from it and why it won't just go away. Even those who have been in long term therapy frustratingly find that instead of resolving their issues, they just seem to be talking around in circles making very little progress.
Understating how the mind works, creating a mindset conducive to change and having a plan of action are crucial in overcoming any mental health challenge.
This book explains the mind's operation and the creation of belief systems. It explores the origins of anxiety causing problems and the subconscious drivers that maintain them. It touches on the influence of the mind on the body and its involvement with chronic pain and illness. It also includes some empowering ideas that will challenge the way you think about yourself.
Not only is the information in this book suitable for sufferers, but for anyone helping a family member or friend with an anxiety causing problem. Even health professionals will benefit from reading this book as it endeavours to explain why much of the good advice they give to their clients so often falls on barren ground.
