Author(s): Pauline McKinnon
As a young mother of four, Pauline McKinnon's life was crippled from the debilitating condition of agoraphobia. Her chronic anxiety and acute fear of leaving the house continued for eight years while she searched in vain for a cure. Her meeting with eminent psychiatrist, Dr Ainslie Meares - who famously wrote Relief without Drugs - was the turning point. His pioneering method of Stillness Meditation literally saved her life. This breakthrough book is her personal account - a story with strong resonance for anyone who has ever suffered from any form of fear or anxiety. But this is much more than her personal story. Now, with thirty years practice as a psychotherapist, Pauline has seen the simple, yet powerful method of Stillness Meditation Therapy (SMT(R)) change the lives of countless others. In this totally revised 30th anniversary edition of her book, Pauline brings her practical, clinical insight to explain how to find natural, lasting relief.
