Publisher's Summary

Do you find yourself not being able to enjoy the great outdoors because you feel like the world's going to eat you? Do you feel extremely panicked at the sight of the tiniest of spiders? Do you ever get the feeling that you are going to die while riding the elevator?

If you have ever felt any of these things, or anything similar, then you probably suffer from anxiety-induced phobias. Fears are a normal part of life, but there is a point where a simple fear turns into a debilitating phobia. These phobias can interfere with your everyday life to the point where you are afraid to leave the house.

A phobia is characterized by an extreme fear of something which doesn't actually pose a real threat to the person. Phobias are a group of anxiety symptoms that are triggered by certain situations or objects. Some common phobias are needles, snakes, insects, flying, highway driving, heights, and close places. But people can have a phobia of literally anything. Typically, a phobia is developed during childhood, but you can still develop them as an adult.

Chances are, if you have a phobia, you know that it's irrational, yet you can't do anything to control how you feel. Just the thought of your fear can raise feelings of anxiousness. Then, when you experience your fear, you are automatically overwhelmed with terror.

This book is here to help guide you so that you can repair these fears and be able to live your best life possible.

As a rule of thumb, you should always try self-help. The more you can do for yourself, the more you will feel like you are in control of your life. This will help you out in the long run. If your phobias are so bad that they cause you to have panic attacks and you suffer from extreme anxiety, then you will probably want to have professional assistance as well.

    "great book from williams"

    I have used this book to supplement the work I'm doing with a good therapist. I learn something important about myself every time I listened to it and I feel like I am listening to a book that is written about me. It has been so valuable in my work towards the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder and depression. For me, this is the most valuable book I have to listen tip it in my entire life. For the first time, I have hope that I can overcome the debilitating anxiety I have lived with for years. I am learning skills that will help me from relapsing into old ineffective behaviors. I will reference this book for years to come.

    "Informative audio book"

    There are more options available for those who want to reduce anxiety. There are medicines, herbs, various therapies and there are also relaxation strategies. It demonstrates with facts and studies how the brain plays a huge role in our fears. I have begun to implement some of the suggestions, and have noticed some minor improvements from myself. This audio book is well researched and written in a way where it is simple to understand and good informative book.

    "SELF HELP BOOK"

    This book is a great self-help book. I recommend that you really take your time to go through the exercises in the book. I suffered from extreme anxiety while driving and my friend recommended this book. Try to be open because the book can be insightful and can help with self-realization. Using the methods in the book I have eliminated the need for any medications and I am able to drive anywhere I want without the fear. I truly feel that this book was a catalyst for change in my life. If you are on the fence, just jump – there is nowhere to go but up!suggested guide.....

    "Anxiety & Phobia Handbook"

    A short book to help you decide if you have anxiety, phobia, or some other fears. It's very important to give your condition a name, so you can then plan ways of dealing with it. The book makes it easy to decide that. Then you can find a more in-depth guide for the exact thing you're having. This is more like an introduction to common phobias and anxiety symptoms.

    "Thanks for the author"

    Everyone has different comprehension in regards to anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias but through this book, everything you misconceive will change. It is true that no one will be cured overnight just by listening to this book but through following the instructions/ideas in this book plus your regular consultation with your doctor surely the time will come you could manage it with ease.

    I just bought this book and only read the first chapter but I love it so much and already learned a lot! When I shared it with my friends, a few of them had already been recommended it by their therapists. I'm very excited to finish it!

    "great book"

    Bought this book for some personal research I'm doing about Anxiety, Phobias, and their causes. This is a well-organized book with great information. The workbook is interesting as well but I haven't really delved into the exercises much. I would recommend it if you are looking for an introduction to understanding these topics and some of the non-medication type things you can do about them.

    "Helpful book"

    I have not finished it. But it's a great workbook that helps you to understand your anxiety and work through it. I did not want to take meds for my anxiety so between this book and changing my diet by giving up simple sugars I have pretty much gotten rid of my anxiety.

    Got this book for a friend that suffers from anxiety and phobias. We live in a rural area and it's hard to get doctor appointments. We've gone through it together and she has gotten a lot of pointers from it and is doing a lot better than she had been.
