Anxiety is a crafty shapeshifter that can take on many forms: the tiger that sinks its claws in with physical symptoms and distressing thoughts, the cruel and belittling bully creating insecurity and self-doubt and, worst of all, the frenemy rewarding avoidance of social situations with no physical symptoms, no cruel thoughts... and no life beyond your sofa!

This complete guide to beating social anxiety covers everything from school, university and work, through to surviving social media and making it through parties and dates (whilst actually enjoying them!) With honest insights about her own social anxiety and a healthy dose of humour, popular blogger Claire Eastham describes what social anxiety is, why it happens, and how you can lessen its effects with medication, lifestyle choices, talking therapies or even a hug from your favourite canine friend!

About the Author

Claire Eastham writes about coping with social anxiety on her award-winning blog, We're All Mad Here, 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 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 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
