This illustrated pocket book offers advice, practical tips and useful exercises for students to recognise and manage anxiety at university. Written by the award-winning student mental health specialist, Dr Dominique Thompson, this easy-to-read guide will help readers understand where their anxiety comes from, and why it exists. Whatever the source of individuals' worries or phobias, this book will help readers understand their anxiety and help them develop the tools they need to handle it.
With lots of real-world examples, Dr Thompson shows how anxiety affects people in many different ways - helping readers develop the kinds of strategies that will help them in ways that are truly meaningful for their experience. Just as importantly, readers will learn about the kinds of unhelpful things that people try to do to deal with anxiety which actually do more harm than good.
Above all, this book will help students navigate their life at university, without feeling like their anxieties are in charge of them.
