Hope with Anxiety by Lynn Crilly
Anxiety is a familiar word, one which seems hard to escape in today’s busy world. In this book, Lynn brings her warm, non-judgemental, family-friendly approach to bear on the rising tide of contemporary anxiety, exacerbated by political and economic uncertainty, climate change, social media and a world that is being transformed ever more rapidly. She looks at how anxiety manifests, how it relates to other mental health issues and what the many options are for treatment and restoring wellbeing.
As ever, she draws on a wide range of health practitioners to explain therapeutic options – both mainstream and alternative – and thereby provide a truly varied toolkit with something for every individual to try. Throughout, case histories support, confirm and illustrate the practical information, always with the emphasis on hope for leading a fulfilled life unconstrained by the effects of anxiety.
