Description

Un-Agoraphobic offers a comprehensive, step-by-step self-help program for overcoming agoraphobia and panic attacks. Since overcoming his own disorder twenty years ago, Mathew has been leading support groups and recovery programs for people with agoraphobia. He understands what agoraphobes need and how to deliver it.

No one knows exactly what causes agoraphobia or panic attacks, but it clearly involves some misfirings in the brain. The good news is that recent neuroscience research suggests the brain is retrainable - at any age.

The basis for any recovery plan for anxiety disorders is a highly structured approach each day. Mathew provides a daily schedule that lays out a clear set of steps and considerations for conquering this affliction, including:

  • writing every day
  • cultivating present-moment thinking
  • taking a new approach to food and eating
  • choosing a therapist
  • starting a peer support group
  • using visualization techniques specifically designed for overcoming anxiety and panic
  • taking medications, if appropriate
  • dealing with children, spouse, parents, friends, coworkers, teachers, bosses, and more
  • taking your first trip out of the house

Mathew includes FAQs, general survival tips, and a special chapter on tips for spouses and loved ones.

Un-Agoraphobic is candid, funny, prescriptive, and spot on for panic disorders - by an author with a lot of life experience under his belt.

Content is fine but wrong choice for narrator.

Would you try another book from Hal Mathew and/or Jeff Cummings?

Poor narrator choice. He sounds giddy when talking about an ailment/ disease as if he's reading a magical children's story. The content may be good but not sure people will keep listening. His tone is not matching the subject matter and it may be tough for those suffering to relate. A hint of empathy, understanding or seriousness would been more appropriate.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Cummings?

Anyone

Awful! Really didn't like this.

Any additional comments?

Thought this book was awful to be absolutely blunt. All the "advice" i have read countless times before with a free google sense. Also felt it was written in a very medical way. Maybe it is more for doctors who want to understand these conditions, but for anyone looking advice to actually overcome them, then is NOT for you. Very disappointed.
