about

I suffered with mental health problems for many years before I got the help I needed, and in more stressful periods of my life, I experienced panic attacks from time-to-time. Fortunately, I found a way through my panic attacks by reading self-help books. Perhaps reading such books stimulated my interest in psychology, it’s hard to say for sure. One thing I am grateful for is the freedom that psychological knowledge has given me. It has given me a life I value living as well as offering me an opportunity to help many others along the way. Myself and Dr Nicola Ridgeway have included all of the most up-to-date information that we currently use in our clinical practice to help you through your frightening panic experience. Multiple exercises and CBT worksheets are included in this book, so that you can keep a permanent record of your personal journey with panic. This book is highly suitable as an aid to therapy and it will be very helpful if you are having CBT or are thinking about having CBT.
