Worry Box for Adults
You’re three steps away from fixing it for good.
3rd edition published by Five Areas Limited (September 2018)
This book aims to help adults understand anxiety, panic and worry. It teaches strategies in how to face, fix, then forget (i.e. move on from) worrying and panicky thoughts.
The content is based on the popular and evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach. Solutions are quick and simple, and really can fix worry for good.
Helps you understand your anxiety – your worry and introduces you to a great way to fix it: the 3 F’s (Face it, Fix it, Forget it).
The first F – Face it. If you fear going to a busy shop, perhaps, or meeting people, you avoid those things and lose some of the variety, fun or fulfilment in your life. This book helps you get it back.
The second F – Fix it. For people who are worrying about a particular problem – money, a relationship, your job perhaps – this book contains a fool proof way to tackle most problems.
The third F – Forget It. When things just churn round and round in your head, you’ll need this section to help you change your thinking and end the worrying thoughts.
A final section called In case of panic is designed to educate and inform people how to respond to a panic attack.
