Dr Kate Middleton’s book, “The First Steps Out of Anxiety” is a brilliant read for anyone struggling with an anxiety problem. This well written little book is packed with insight and practical ideas for anxiety management.
I love that from the outset Kate affirms that anxiety is not a “bad” emotion, which can help to alleviate some of the guilt which surrounds the issue for Christians. The “Mythbuster” and “Over to You” sections are particularly brilliant as they draw the eye and enable the reader to wrestle with their own anxieties.
Arguably, the only improvement that would improve the book is some colour to keep the presentation style as engaging as the content!
A highly recommended resource for anyone wanting a user-friendly introduction to anxiety from the life-long worrier to the youth-worker seeking some understanding.
