Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just flick a switch and make your shyness go away? No more worrying about what others think about you, no more embarrassment in front of other people. You could just relax and feel comfortable and confident, the way you probably think everyone else feels.


If you struggle with shyness, you’re all too familiar with the feeling of not knowing

Very good book. I've needed for work for some training I've been doing. I found it covers CBT in very simple terms, basically recognising negative thoughts and basing them on reality. Good practical guide for anyone working with teenagers.

Good intro to ACT strategies for teens suffering from anxiety

A good self-help book focusing on behavioral strategies to overcome anxiety. This book is meant to be read by teens and their parents.

I read it really quickly as I already understood most of what I read. I would hav found it more useful had i read it when i was 14 or so, rather than my current age of 18.

My favorite parts of this resource include the anxiety ladder and exposure ladder, for we in this field know that exposure therapy is the gold-crown of helping clients and helping oneself through specific anxiety.

I do recommend this for its cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT) approach

My journey writing this book began as a 5 year-old, sitting next to my mother while she studied for her psychology classes. I wanted so much to be a psychologist and help others. But I needed plenty of help myself. I was an anxious child, prone to stomach aches, missing school, and nightmares of a man who lived under the house. When my father died I worried obsessively that my mother could die too ...more
