Anxiety: Panicking about Panic – a powerful self-help guide for those suffering from an Anxiety or Panic Disorder

Panicking About Panic

Anxiety: Panicking about Panic was written by The Panic Room creator Joshua Fletcher after he successfully overcame a long-term panic disorder condition. Joshua believed so much in his book and what he could bring to the misunderstood subject of anxiety that he gave up a teaching career in order to pursue a project he feels so passionate about.

Anxiety: Panicking about Panic is an educational, self-help book based around Joshua’s first hand experience with panic disorder and excessive anxiety. What makes the book so successful and unique is that it is written from the perspective of someone who can relate to and understand a lot of the core symptoms that come with an anxiety condition. The response and feedback to the book has been positively tremendous. It acts as the anchor point and the core of the Panic Room counselling philosophy.

Since the book’s release in May 2014, it has sold thousands of copies across the UK and the US receiving glowing reviews in the process:

“I have read a number of books on dealing with anxiety, and this is by far the best. I think it’s maybe because it’s an anxiety sufferer that’s telling the ‘story’ of many of our lives. It feels personal, everything that is written makes sense. I found the emergency paragraph at the end of the book useful, since reading the book and using the techniques/advice I have found that I can stop my anxiety in its tracks before the onset of a huge panic attack, which is of course is what we are all aiming to do 🙂 Thank you to Joshua for writing the book, it has really helped me to start leading a ‘normal’ life again” – Emma,

Below is an extract taken from the introduction:

This book begins with a comprehensive list of symptoms that relate to anxiety, although it primarily addresses anxiety’s main symptoms which consist of unexplainable panic, panic attacks, derealisation, hypochondria, continuous fear and hypersensitivity. Joshua believes that these are the root cause of all of the other physical problems that can arise with anxiety, such as heart palpitations, chest pains, headaches, insomnia, dizziness etc.

This book is then split into four main parts: the first part covers the basics of anxiety, panic and what’s happening within our mind and bodies when we find ourselves panicking. It’s probable you’ll find that reading this part of the book imparts a strong form of relief, as it provides an essential tool needed for the recovery process – an understanding of what’s actually going on.

Part two is a detailed list of the symptoms that can occur with anxiety. It is set out using a ‘What?’ and ‘Why?’ format to simplify and explain why such symptoms occur.

Part three offers further information and practical advice to keep anxiety and panic at bay and part four is a short ‘emergency relief’ section written for those who are experiencing a panic attack.

Many readers have commented that they not only found this book helpful, but have used the emergency panic attack section as the base template for their own panic attack scripture.

“I love this book, what made it all the more powerful is that it’s written by someone who’s been through it. I’ve struggled with anxiety for two decades and had all kinds of treatments, counselling and therapy, and yet there are things in this book I’ve never realised or been told, and I needed to hear them. Thank you Joshua for this wonderful book.” – Kurani,
