Claustrophobia: finding your way out by Andrea Perry
This book provides hope and help for people who fear and avoid confined spaces. Written by therapist and consultant Andrea Perry, Andrea speaks honestly about her own experience of claustrophobia, and draws on the views of others who have experienced similar anxiety and overcome it.
Andrea Perry has delivered a helpful and detailed understanding of claustrophobia. Recounting her own early experiences and the distress and debilitating anxiety that claustrophobia triggers, this warm, empathic book offers a healthy understanding of the phobia, the therapies and self-help strategies that exist to build confidence and overcome the overwhelming sense of dread that it generates. From elevators to MRI scans (which can initiate claustrophobia in the most resilient individual) the reader is encouraged to recognise their personal reactions to the content as a means of improving their skill in managing the anxiety.
