The Professional Worrier
Become the Boss of Your Anxiety
By Stewart Geddes
The Professional Worrier explores how anxiety works and shows us how to build awareness around our worries to meet them head on.
'Geddes gets it: anxiety, how it works and, more importantly, how to show it who's boss' Caroline Foran, author of Owning It
Worry and anxiety can damage our careers and relationships, can hold us back from exploring new opportunities, and is detrimental to our concentration, mood and self-esteem. And during times when we feel overwhelmed, we doubt ourselves and our ability to cope.
In The Professional Worrier, counsellor, psychotherapist and self-confessed worrier Stewart Geddes examines how creating greater awareness around anxiety can change the way you deal with everyday stresses at work and at home.
From anxiety about relationships to panic about an ever-growing to-do list, fear of making the wrong decision, or the pressure of producing perfect work, The Professional Worrier offers practical guidance to help you take control of your worry every day - so it doesn't control you - and build the trust in yourself to tackle anything that comes your way.
