Panic disorder and phobia are difficulties that are commonly encountered in our consulting rooms. There is an ongoing debate concerning the lack of provision within the NHS to help those with mental health problems. This book puts forward a different method of recovery called systematic desensitisation, which is rarely covered by the many books that are available on the subject. Rhona M. Fear presents this method both as a former patient and as a therapist of almost thirty years’ standing. It can be learned and used highly successfully by practitioners to help alleviate panic disorder and phobia.

Having described the common physiological and psychological symptoms of panic disorder and phobia, the author then familiarises the reader with how to utilise this method. Two extended case studies are also presented: one of agoraphobia, the other of driving phobia.

Whilst this book aims to appeal to counsellors, psychotherapists, and psychologists, it may also be useful for sufferers themselves to read

and adopt this programme of recovery for themselves.
