Author(s): Bev Aisbett
Bev Aisbett is Australia's bestselling expert on anxiety, depression and panic attacks.
In 1993, after recovering from severe anxiety and depression herself, Bev wrote the first of her bestselling books, Living with IT: A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks, which rapidly became a national bestseller.
Approximately 5% of the population will experience panic attacks at some time or another. The dread of having an attack (they seemingly come out of nowhere), transforms the ordinary world of everyday life into a nightmare of anxiety and suffering.
Originally published in 1993, this calm, commonsense guide has helped many thousands of panic attack sufferers to manage and overcome their fears. Bev Aisbett explains how panic disorders develop, how to recognise the symptoms, and covers topics such as changing negative thought patterns, seeking professional help and, ultimately, the skills for recovery. Living with IT provides much-needed reassurance and support, showing the way out of the maze of panic with humour and the insight of first-hand experience.
