Ageless wisdom

I have wrestled with anxiety and depression for a couple years now. I'm using several different approaches to get well. This audio book has had the most impact; I revisit it often

Really helps!

This book helps a great deal as a supplement to CBT and reading lots of other anxiety books. I find it especially helpful when I'm in a place where I'm unable to read, but can only listen to books on tape. Dr. Weeks helps to calmly talk me off the ledge if I think I'm going to have a panic attack.

Dr Weeks really understands and helps

Would you consider the audio edition of Hope and Help for Your Nerves to be better than the print version?

I was recently very anxious and depressed. So anxious in fact that i was unable to read a book ,so downloaded this audio version of books i've owned by her in the past.Some years back i owned the cassette version of this, but either way this download is convenient and SO helpful

What other book might you compare Hope and Help for Your Nerves to, and why?

Any of the other titles by Dr Weekes

Which scene did you most enjoy?

She really understood (she has passed away now) the symptoms, often frightening,of nervous illness.She will explain the effect that adrenalin has on your body and unreality and depersonalisation and then the natural progression into depression and finally the journey towards recovery

Any additional comments?

If you are currently suffering through the symptoms of nervous illness and are bewildered by your frightening thoughts and feelings, i promise you that this book will explain to you what you are going through. You will gain lots of understanding about why you feel unwell and will learn that your body is behaving perfectly naturally to the stress it is currently experiencing. I can't praise Claire Weekes enough.

Ahead of her time.

If you suffer from anxiety give this a try. Dr Claire Weekes explains what anxiety is and how to recover from it. It has helped me so much. She was years ahead of her time. This should be a staple for all anxiety sufferers.

Just buy it

What did you like most about Hope and Help for Your Nerves?

Claire Weekes not only knows what she's talking about, she has a style of delivery that is both wonderfully reassuring and, to use her own favourite word, utterly to the point. No New Age dissembling, no god-bothering invocations, just outstanding guidance that works literally as you are listening.

What did you like best about this story?

Of course, this is not a story but she does get you to drop your story and simply get down to the nitty gritty of stepping into the wonderful place you've craved for ages.

Which character – as performed by Claire Weekes – was your favourite?

She is my favourite character. She reminds me of my now gone English mom, wonderfully clear and emphatic. Makes you just want to get on with life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absoulutely, Mulitple times

Any additional comments?

If anxiety has been your burden, this book will get you onto the path of recovery and that is not hyperbole. Just buy it.
