In The Anxiety Club we are introduced to three characters, each with a different form of anxiety. After hearing their stories, we follow them into the therapy room where they discover the behavioral, cognitive and emotional tools to help free themselves from anxious thinking. Many people believe that there is no treatment for anxiety: they try to soothe their inner suffering with medication, alcohol, drugs or binge eating.

However, there are healthy ways to manage such negative thoughts and feelings. This self-help handbook, written by psychiatrist Dr. Frédéric Fanget and editor Catherine Meyer and drawn by Pauline Aubrey, helps the reader to identify, understand and find freedom from anxiety.
