Just buy it

What did you like most about Hope and Help for Your Nerves?

Claire Weekes not only knows what she's talking about, she has a style of delivery that is both wonderfully reassuring and, to use her own favourite word, utterly to the point. No New Age dissembling, no god-bothering invocations, just outstanding guidance that works literally as you are listening.

What did you like best about this story?

Of course, this is not a story but she does get you to drop your story and simply get down to the nitty gritty of stepping into the wonderful place you've craved for ages.

Which character – as performed by Claire Weekes – was your favourite?

She is my favourite character. She reminds me of my now gone English mom, wonderfully clear and emphatic. Makes you just want to get on with life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absoulutely, Mulitple times

Any additional comments?

If anxiety has been your burden, this book will get you onto the path of recovery and that is not hyperbole. Just buy it.

Great book on anxiety

Don’t be put off by the old fashioned terminology, this is one of the most useful talks on anxiety and depression I’ve come across. She was ahead of her time and from being a good GP anticipated approaches developed decades later by psychology, but in my opinion in a way that is still much more grounded, practical and compassionate.

Useful but incomplete

A short intro to Dr Weekes theories, recorded "on records" in the sixties. Essentially she directs you to the more thorough information on her book. She provides a handy insight into the mind of anxiety that helps understand what you or the people you care for are going through.

Hope and Help for

This is an absolute gem of a book which has saved my sanity many times over decades.
My copy is 50 years old and bound together with bandaids.
It is as pertinent now as then.
I now recognise some parallels between the basic concepts here and that of the "2nd arrow " of Buddhism.
Dear Claire Weekes, if you are reading this ...many,many thanks.

For all anxious people, and those who want to understand it

For all the books I’ve read, none has ever described the experience of life with anxiety as spot on as this one. SHE GETS IT.
