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.

Still relevant today and it works!!

Claire's words of wisdom are as relevant today as when they were written in the 1960s. The central theme of acceptance is hard when you seem to be at the mercy of your nerves, but have courage because this works! The first time you manage to sit through and truly accept your anxiety attack or usual train of terrifying thoughts is so liberating. You get a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel and can start to believe that you will get through. I prefer this method to CBT - I find the constant analysis in CBT exhausting especially when your poor mind and body is already stretched to its limit. Relaxing and accepting gives you a chance to repair; so much of nervous illness makes no sense, so accepting rather than questioning gives you a break for constant self-analysis.
