Anxiety : expert advice from a neurotic shrink who's lived with it all his life

Cross, Mark2020
Consultant psychiatrist Dr Mark Cross knows a lot about anxiety. Many of his patients are sufferers, which is hardly surprising, because anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, affecting up to one in four people at some point in their lives. But Mark also knows about anxiety from another perspective, because he too has suffered from it all his life. In this book Cross demystifies anxiety in his trademark warm and friendly style. For sufferers, their families and friends, the book explores: types of anxiety; causes and common triggers; medical, therapy-based and natural treatments; the effect of anxiety at each life stage; anxiety in the workplace; navigating the health systems, and much more. Along the way, Mark shares his own experiences as well as stories from other sufferers who have not only survived by thrived.
