The Anxiety Solution by Chloe Brotheridge

Firstly I just have to mention how pretty this book is. As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be my kind of thing. Pastels, white, gold, it’s just so beaut.

In a recent post I wrote about learning to work with my brain instead of against it, and learning to be compassionate towards myself. This book supports and encourages exactly that, and there’s a particular passage that I really loved.

This is something that really helped me. All I wanted to do was help ‘little me’ and in doing so, I learnt compassion and gained strength. There was one particular therapy session in which I actuqlly pictured ‘little me’ sitting beside me. It was very powerful and changed my whole outlook on everything that had happened and my life as a whole. Now, everything I do is for little Hannah. Learning this self compassion has completely changed my life. It has become a vital contributor to my recovery and allowed me to see things from a different perspective. I deserve to lead a good, happy life. Little Hannah deserves to lead a good, happy life. So I’m going to do that.

I feel that this book completely backed up everything I’d learnt from therapy and helped to enforce it in a way that I understood and was doable. Chloe’s anecdotes were so relatable and provided explanations, tips and that all important feeling of ‘woah, other people get it.’┬áBut as well as this, the book is jam packed with what you can do about it.

The Anxiety Solution is available in most well-known book shops including Waterstones & WH Smith, as well as Amazon. Also, be sure to check out Chloe’s website which includes a blog and loads of resources to help with anxiety.
