Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness
Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness is a self-help manual, which explains why it happens and sets out practical methods of resolving it. Everyone feels foolish, embarrassed, judged or criticised at times, but this becomes a problem when it undermines your confidence and prevents you from doing what you want to do. At its most extreme, shyness can be crippling but it is easily treated using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Using real-life examples, Professor Gillian Butler sets out a practical, easy-to-use self-help course which will be invaluable for those suffering from all degrees of social anxiety.
Overcoming Anger & Irritability by William Davies
Constant irritability or flashes of bad temper can cause difficulties in relationships with friends, family or colleagues and leave us feeling unhappy and exhausted. If you find yourself struggling to control your rage and often regret inappropriate reactions, this book can really help. It explains clearly what provokes anger and what you can do to prevent it. Techniques based on cognitive behavioural therapy offer a positive approach with long-term goals in mind, and show how you can stay cool and successfully handle situations that would tax even the most easy-going person.
Overcoming Health Anxiety
Many of us have a tendency to worry unnecessarily about our health. For some the anxiety becomes chronic, and they may spend many hours checking for symptoms, seeking reassurance from others, surfing the internet for information about different diseases, or repeatedly visiting the doctor. It is distressing for them and for everyone around them. In fact, health anxiety can be very successfully treated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - the approach taken in this self-help guide. Using a structured, step-by-step approach the authors explain how the problem develops, how to recognise what feeds it and how to develop effective methods of dealing with it.
