Reviews for The Panic Button Book: A step-by-step guide to neutralise worry, overthinking and anxiety
'I highly recommend this new book by Tammi Kirkness which gives you simple, step-by-step suggestions about what to do when you feel it coming on. This will also help those who experience anxiety prior to a performance, like many of my presentation training clients. As a life-long anxiety sufferer (albeit quite low level, aside from the times I fainted on TV!) I've found this book extremely useful.' TRACEY SPICER
