Relax - Say Goodbye to Anxiety and Panic Attacks

by Dr Patrick McCarthy

Would you like to prevent anxiety?

This simple but effective book, for people who experience anxiety and panic attacks, explains how anxiety occurs and offers a simple three-step process to prevent it.

Written in a conversational, easy-to-read style by a doctor specialising in medical hypnosis, the book is accompanied by a CD that provides a self-hypnosis process to prevent anxiety and panic attacks that has been used to treat thousands of people.

The CD teaches people how to relax in less than a minute, replace negative thoughts with positive ones in less than a second, and change from a pessimistic to an optimistic style of thinking.

The CD contains the three step process saved as three mp3 files which can be downloaded to your audio player of choice, saved to computer and/or burned to audio CD for playing on older CD players.

‘This resource will be a vitally important part of many anxiety sufferer’s recovery’ Judi Clement, CEO, Mental Health Foundation

Reader Review:

‘I found the book incredibly easy to read and the concepts that Dr McCarthy was presenting were easily digested.  Even in an anxious state I could easily understand and appreciate the ideas.  In fact, I was excited by the approach. 

I will admit to feeling a little dubious that self-hypnosis would be possible for an anxious person to achieve.  I was happily proven wrong and after listening to the CD in its entirety, for the first time in weeks I had lost the knot in my stomach and the relentless sense of fear. 

I have been practising the concepts ever since and listen to the CD at least twice a week.  It’s proven to be a life changer: I now sleep 8 hours at night (prior to this I was averaging 4 hours per night) and am the most happiest and relaxed I’ve been in a decade.’
