OVERCOMING HEALTH ANXIETY

ROB WILLSON & DAVID VEALE    Book Number: 88601    Product format: Paperback

A highly recommended self-help guide which uses clinically-proven techniques to treat longstanding and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. How can you stop worrying about your health and enjoy life? For many of us, we have a tendency to worry unnecessarily and for some, anxiety becomes chronic and they may spend many hours checking for symptoms, seeking reassurance from others, surfing the Internet for information about different diseases or repeatedly visiting the doctor. It is distressing for them and for everyone around them. In fact, health anxiety can be very successfully treated with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Using a structured, step-by-step approach, the guide helps develop effective methods and includes questionnaires, case studies and exercises and a chapter on fear of death and fear of vomiting. There is space to fill in your record of experiments for tasks, how distressing predicting that task will be 0 to 100%, how long you are predicting the distress will halve in minutes or hours, whether the result will best fit theory A or B and how strongly you believe in it. With useful list for support groups and addresses, a guide to medication, helping others, facing your fears and learning to re-train your attention and dealing with thoughts and images. Diagrams, 318pp in softback.
