No-nonsense guide to surviving social anxiety from award-winning blogger, Claire Eastham
Claire Eastham writes about coping with social anxiety on her award-winning blog, We're All Mad Here (www.weallmadhere.com), and recently started her own YouTube channel where she discusses anxiety and demonstrates self-help techniques. She works in publishing and is based in London, UK.
Claire's openness about her anxiety is perfectly counter-balanced
with practical tips and ideas to try. The result is that the reader
feels like a friend, who really 'gets them', is holding their hand
whilst gently urging them to spread their wings and fly. -- Dr
Pooky Knightsmith, mental health ambassador and educator
Claire Eastham's personality leaps from the pages of We're All Mad Here and gives you an enthusiastic cuddle. If you haven't fallen in love with her by the time you're finished then we probably wouldn't get on. -- from the foreword by Natasha Devon, MBE
Claire provides a very personal insight into her own experience of living with anxiety and the challenges she has faced through school, university and working life in a no holds barred, warts and all account. Her easy writing style and sharp humour will not only keep you engaged and entertained - with frequent laugh out loud moments - but she shares some really useful tips and encouragement that many people living with anxiety, stress and anxiety-based depression will find extremely helpful. -- Nicky Lidbetter, Chief Executive, Anxiety UK
