Relief from Anxiety and Panic by Tess Graham (2017)

With Foreword by Dr A. Harmer, Clinical Psychologist, Clinical Director of Capital Anxiety Clinic, Canberra, Australia

“The effectiveness of this program lies in its simplicity. In essence you learn two simple things: one is a different perspective on breathing, and the other is how to gently nudge your breathing to how it should be. The benefits are profound.”
  — AMANDA FERRY, BSc (Psych) PGDip Psych

 “In my opinion, this is the best self-help book for overcoming chronic anxiety and panic – and I have read lots of them. With clarity, simplicity and empathy, the author shows how to use healthy breathing to take back control of how your body functions. Use this book to calm your breathing, your body and your mind.”
— KAREN ST CLAIR, Counsellor

“This book changed my life. For the first time I became aware of what dysfunctional breathing is, and of what it does to perpetuate the out-of-the-blue attacks of terror I have suffered for decades. I have not felt this sense of inner peace in a very long time.”

“This book gives comprehensive and enlightening information on anxiety and panic disorders and their connection with faulty ‘everyday’ breathing. It offers a self-management solution using the scientifically-based principles of Breathing Retraining which are deceptively simple and easy to follow.  I love the ‘cloud exercise’. This concept is a visual and easy to manage tool that immediately offers relief of acute symptoms.”
  — GLENN SMITH, Physiotherapist
