Overcoming Worry and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (2nd Ed) by Mark Freeston and Kevin Meares



Excessive worrying (otherwise known as Generalised Anxiety Disorder) affects more than 4% of the population and can cause a huge amount of distress.

Written by two of the UK’s leading experts on generalised anxiety, Overcoming Worry uses cognitive behavioural therapy methods to help change the self-defeating ways we think, in order to feel better. This positive, pragmatic approach is popular with therapists and patients alike.

The book contains:

  • Clear explanations of the negative cycles that keep us in a state of persistent worry
  • Step-by-step exercises and strategies for managing anxiety
  • Practical worksheets to monitor your progress

“There is so much advice about overcoming anxiety and worrying that it is sometimes difficult to know where to start and what to believe. This book is brilliant because it helps you understand your problem, and then empowers you to overcome it for yourself. One of the symptoms of anxiety is to search for lots of information, but I would encourage anyone to avoid reading all the anxiety related horror stories on the web – what is the point? Instead, take control of your own life and read this book. It was recommended to me by my cognitive behavioural therapist.”
