Do you worry that you'll say the wrong thing, wear the wrong outfit, or look out of place? Or maybe that you'll make a mistake at work, disappoint your partner, or overlook a serious health problem? Or perhaps you just worry too much - constantly running what-if scenarios through your head? Of course you do - we all do. Worry is a central issue in many people's lives; 38% of people say they worry every day. In this groundbreaking book, Dr Robert Leahy offers new insight, advice and practical techniques for everyone who has ever had a sleepless night. Using the most recent research and his 25 years of experience treating patients, Dr Leahy helps us understand why we worry and how best to defeat it. In his easy-to-follow-programme, he tells you how to: Identify productive and unproductive worry; Accept reality and commit to change; Turn 'failure' into opportunity; Use your emotions rather than worry about them. Combining stories from his practice with unique approaches to reducing worry, The Worry Cure is an essential companion for everyone who is anxious.
