Synopsis

How you can stop worrying about your health and enjoy life



'This book not only helps sufferers to better understand the nature of the problem, but also provides them with the skills necessary to overcome it and to regain quality of life'

Professor Paul Salkovskis, Professor of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford



Many of us have a tendency to worry unnecessarily about our health. For some the anxiety becomes severe and persistent. This can involve spending 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) - the approach taken in this self-help guide. Using a structured, step-by-step approach the authors explain how the problem develops, how to recognise what feeds it and how to develop effective methods of dealing with it. This book includes:

- Questionnaires, case studies and exercises

- Chapters on fear of death and on medication



Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, boith psychological and physical.
