So many of us suffer from anxiety and I am one of them. I suffer from extreme social anxiety that keeps me in my house almost 24-7. I wanted to review a self help anxiety book and see how it helped me! Let's get into this review!
What They Say:
~Psychologist David Berndt, Ph.D., in Overcoming Anxiety, outlines several self-help methods for relief from anxiety and worry. In clear language and a conversational style. Dr. Berndt talks with the reader like he might in a therapy session, and he shares what he has learned from his clients about how to make techniques for anxiety management more effective and helpful..
You will be able to learn:
• A Self-hypnosis grounding technique in the Ericksonian tradition.
• Box Breathing, Seven Eleven and similar breathing techniques for anxiety relief.
• How to stop or interrupt toxic thoughts that keep you locked in anxiety.
• How to harness and utilize your worries, so they work for you.
• Relief from anxiety through desensitization and exposure therapy.
Designed to be used alone as self-help or in conjunction with professional treatment, Dr. Berndt draws upon his experience as a clinician and academic researcher to give accessible help to the reader who wants to understand and manage their anxiety.
What I Say:
I liked right away that the book is written by a real psychologist. A lot of books these days seem to be written by people who have no real credentials and it can harm more than help at times. It feels safer to take advice from someone who you KNOW is educated in the field you need help with! I suffer from EXTREME anxiety. It started after high school and just grew and grew. I used to be the life of the party and very social and certain traumatic things happened in my life that took that away from me and replaced it with a shell of who I was. I rarely left my house and if I did, I got very anxious and angry. This book literally helped me and is STILL helping me over come my social anxiety step by step and in my own way that works for me. The book doesnt tell you one way to over come anxiety because that doesnt work for everyone. This book helps you figure out what works for YOU individually to over come your unique anxiety and triggers. It helped me realize when I am creating the anxiety myself for unwarranted reasons and bring my self back to reality to cope with it. I have read a bunch of anxiety books that just did not fit with my personal anxiety but, this book has literally changed my life. After and during reading this, I did three major things that I would never of normally done. I went to NYC for the first time and met a BUNCH of new people, I went to the doctors for the first time in years and I went downtown without makeup on multiple times. I did all of that WITHOUT anxiety medication! The more I have pushed myself to do these things with this books help, the less anxiety I get while doing them! It has helped me so much to start to live my life and break out of the anxiety bubble that is so easy to slip into and stay. If you live with anxiety and just cant seem to find anything to help you, I HIGHLY suggest giving this book a go. It has helped me and continues to help me in ways I can not even explain!
