Publisher's Summary

Is stress, anxiety, or panic ruining your life? Are you tired of failing to recover? Are those "quick fix" approaches failing to deliver results?

That may well be because you're much more like a garden than you are an electrical appliance! Healing anxiety is an organic process, not just nuts and bolts! Anxiety specialist and therapist John Crawford, the author, learned this the hard way when he experienced a terrifying descent into severe anxiety and depression during his 20s and spent many fruitless years seeking the elusive "quick fix" solution before finally meeting a gifted therapist who guided him skillfully to understand what really makes a full recovery possible! Now, almost 25 years later, with that understanding fully cemented, John has spent the last 13 years of his life working as a professional therapist, specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

Anxiety Relief is a warm, compassionate, and expert audiobook to help anxious, panicky, or stressed people, written from both sides of the therapeutic couch! 

If you're suffering and you don't know how to gain relief from your anxiety, then this audiobook is for you. It's wide in scope but laser-focused on ensuring you get results! The tools and understanding presented here are the same proven tools John has been using to help anxious people successfully recover for many years.

Inside Anxiety Relief, you’ll discover:

  • How to create the correct mind-set for full and permanent recovery from (even severe) anxiety.
  • How to fully understand the brain’s evolutionary role in creating stress, anxiety, depression, panic, and negative thinking, and how to use that understanding to take back control.
  • Why self-love, the right resources, and appropriate skills are essential components for recovery when anxiety attacks!
  • Why just throwing random “techniques” at an anxiety problem won't resolve the core of the problem and what to do instead.
  • How compassionate connection with your most vulnerable self will turbocharge your recovery time and offer long-term stability, and how to do it!
  • Why your subconscious mind keeps you locked in anxiety, and how to work with that mind to stop the internal war!
  • And much more!

Anxiety Relief is authored with sparkling clarity to provide an expert step-by-step anxiety recovery system that any anxiety sufferer can understand and put into immediate use. This audiobook goes well beyond the usual “Do this and you’ll feel better” formula, however. It will provide you with an explanation of the many angles you can employ to make things better and provide you with the great missing ingredient that causes many anxiety sufferers to fail in recovery - heart!

Changed my Life

I've never left a review on anything. I suffer from anxiety. Panic attacks, heart palpitations, constant worrying thoughts. This book helped me change it all. I've read several books on self development, but nothing made an impact like this one did. I have so many tools in my toolkit now to help my anxiety. I'm so grateful I found this book.

Audio version not for me

I read the reviews and bought the audible version. Listened to it for 2 hours to give it a chance but found it to be dry and droning and fell asleep during listening. If I had the hard copy in hand, I might be able to flip through it and get more out of it.

John Crawford is an Angel and a Miracle Worker!

Amazing, fabulous, wonderful information, that helped me to better understand what I've been going through, and some extremely insightful and helpful information on how to improve my life a little bit at a time, by working on my issues one at a time, instead of leading me to expect that I would have to be able to tackle all of my anxieties and stress all at once. Thanks John Crawford, for giving me hope for working through my crisis, and hope for improving my future state of mind! I learned more from your book than I've learned from any other self-help books on the same topic over the last six or seven years, or more, and in less time! I only wish that I'd listened to and read this book first, before all of the others which either didn't help at all, or helped so little that I couldn't tell a significant amount of difference. If you have questions, Mr. Crawford is absolutely brilliant, and has had first-hand experience with his own anxiety issues that he worked out, that gives him an extra advantage over all of the currently existing competition. I believe that this book is the best one available on the market at this time! The narration by John Crawford is so soothing and comforting that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him narrate this book, and I intend to continue to listen to it many more times whenever I feel anxious or upset. Mr. Crawford is an astute student of life's ups and downs, after having worked out his own personal problems. And his experiences in finding the solutions and answers to his personal problems are numerous and varied. And he's shared his findings and knowledge in this book. I can't conceive of a better person to help other people with their own problems, any better than Mr. Crawford. Mrs. Crawford must be a phenomenal young woman herself to have been there throughout all of the trials and tribulations that John Crawford and her must've gone through to get to the "other side."! As they say, behind every great man is a great woman. It would've been so easy to figure out the solutions for your anxiety, and gone on to do something else in your lives that would've been more profitable and less time-consuming than helping other people who were also suffering from anxiety, but you elected to be a beacon of hope and help for others who also felt hopeless. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time to help other people like me, who have been suffering through their own personal anxieties and stresses! I look forward to reading your next book!💜💟💞💝💖💕💓💗👐👏👐👏👐👏💗💓💕💖💝

Really helpful and insightful!

This is truly one the few books that I find really helpful, informative and constructive. There is alot information on how and why anxiety happens and tactics to self help and guidance to what to do. It is very realistic and takes the mystery out of anxiety. It is easy to listen to aswell. This is definitely one of my top reads and I wpuld wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone suffering from anxiety and panic.

Sat on the fence

As a sufferer of anxiety I was hoping this would be helpful given the reviews ... I’ve used the audio book because I didn’t want the book lying around as I’m still embarrassed at my condition. I can hide an audio book . The audio version is one which I needed to go back over time and again either through falling asleep or convoluted explanations. Some long chapters to deal with rather than bite sized consumable bits to help in the condition . It took time to get to the solutions to help which maybe I was hoping was going to be the light at the end of the tunnel .. sadly not . Some solutions are obvious but it’s not easy just to out and get a new job , house etc The audio book version was a bit tedious , the speed and tone of the voice wasn’t great and made it hard going . I think the author / publisher should have employed s much more soothing and fluent orator . I’ve not yet finished the audio book .. a few hours to go , maybe I need to start again and give it more attention but it lost me too early .

Great book, well narrated

I have previously owned the paperback copy of the book which I found helped enormously with my anxiety. I got the audiobook to recap whilst on long drives and I was very pleased wth how well narrated it is and how clearly the message comes across when spoken. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone suffering from anxiety, it's a very interesting listen too as a bonus.

excellent book

This book is a must read for anyone with anxiety. It really helped me to understand anxiety and gave me the tools to accept it and not fight it. It has a great chapter at the end for bad days and a half hour relaxation section. A lifesaver which I refer back to when I need it. Thankyou John!

Practical help that works

I really loved this book. It took me a while to get through it because I was really listening to every word. I made lots of notes because it's all useful. It's a very practical way to manage your anxiety and if you are willing to put the time and effort in it really does work. Thank you John!

Amazing

Very insightful, lots of great examples presented in a very interesting and digestible way. I listened to all of it word by word. It’s impossible to get yourself distracted from it. It definitely opened my eyes on many issues and already helped me overcome some of them. This is the best book on anxiety/ psychology on here I found so far.

Very helpful and practical. It was so good that I will listen to this book again probably also buy the paperback, since there are some parts you’d like to reread and use as reference. Also great narration. Wonderful book!

Great book!

Great book and very useful and lots of great advice which I’ll be using again and again. My only criticism is that there were graphs and charts described in the audio book but there was no supplement pdf provided, minor issue though for such a worthwhile read/ listen.
