Review

  • Anxiety: Panicking About Panic has a reassuring and optimistic tone. It explains panic attacks in objective terms to help demystify the terrifying experience of actually going through them. The explanations are accompanied by ways to offset the panic. Overall it's an easy and accessible read with plenty of information that readers can put into practice immediately.  The book has been written from the perspective of someone who has been through [anxiety] and come out on the other side with a story to tell. - Barb Nefer, WebPsychology
  • The strength of this book is that it is highly accessible for the average person who wishes to access information that's free from overwhelming academia. I can imagine that this book is highly valuable to the anxiety survivor, as well as an opening for people who wish to build upon their empathy for others who deal with anxiety. I have recommended this book as one of the first reads for the people who enter my practice and wish to start to understand their anxiety. - Kelvin Church, PhD, The Anxiety Cove Pratice, Manchester, UK

From the Author

After successfully overcoming what is medically defined as a 'panic disorder', I resumed a life where my new ambition was to find joy and contentment post-condition. The inspiration for writing Anxiety: Panicking about Panic came from a genuine want to help others with anxiety and the symptoms that accompany it, such as panic attacks. If you ask anyone who has suffered from a panic attack, I assure you they'll say it's one of the worst feelings you can experience. 

I had suffered with anxiety and panic for years and over time I had built up enough knowledge to understand the condition and, quite critically, understand myself. The key for me was gaining a true understanding of anxiety and learning how to challenge, distinguish, believe and disregard a multitude of different thoughts. I had enough information and practical strategies to beat the condition. Subsequently, I wanted to write what I heard learned down on paper so that others could benefit from it too. I spent many a time trawling the internet researching, reading recounts and also scaring myself in the process. I applied a 'trial and error' approach and challenged my anxiety in many situations. Ultimately, this was the start of how this book was created.

I hadn't written a book before and did not know where to start. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that there was no better way to write it than to address it to my past self. This way, it would be written in a format that showed empathy and understanding - something scare in academic texts and science journals. Quite importantly, the book is written for those who suffer from constant anxiety and panic disorder - I wanted it to be accessible even in states of high anxiety and panic.From a neutral's perspective, I think the book highlights the severe lack of education on the topic as a whole. Many of my clients and readers of my book have often complained that doctors have been too hasty to prescribe medication such as anti-depressants. On the surface the book really isn't that complex, yet its success highlights how far away the medical profession is to providing an adequate response to people who seek help for panic disorder.I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers from the symptoms of anxiety. These symptoms usually come in the form of: panic attacks, social anxiety, feelings of derealisation, agoraphobia, breathlessness, palpitations etc. 

I would also recommend that the relatives of those with the condition should read the book, as well as health professionals, in order to broaden and strengthen their understanding of anxiety and panic disorder. The book has been written from the perspective of someone who has been through it and come out on the other side with a story to tell. Perhaps if people did this then the apathetic stigma, social taboo and the overall disregard for the condition can be abolished.

Joshua Fletcher MSc MBACP is a UK based author and psychotherapist who works at his private practice called The Panic Room ®. At his practice, Joshua specialises in dealing with conditions revolving around anxiety and panic disorders. This includes working with people who suffer from:

- Anxiety and Anxiety Disorder

- Panic Attacks

- Panic Disorder

- Hypochondria

Anxiety: Panicking about Panic is a UK best-seller and the follow up book, Anxiety: Practical about Panic, has just recently been booked in for a re-release through the publishing company, John Murray Publishing. Joshua feels his books have been successful because they are written for people who suffer from anxiety and written BY somebody who has also lived with the condition.

Fletcher used to be a primary school teacher by trade, but left the profession in order to pursue a personal dream of setting up my own private counselling practice - his books being the core foundation of the practice and counselling philosophy.
