Since having my baby 7 weeks ago ive been suffering with anxiety. It's improved a little with each week but Id like to figure out some ways of overcoming it because I feel trapped by it.

Can anyone recommend a book? Ideally one that isn't too wordy that I can read on my phone whilst breast feeding.

Hmmm not sure about reading on phone, but the Overcoming series of books is v good - Overcoming Anxiety. Best of luck flowers oh and Congratulations!

this book is good, I read most of it, but I don't know if you can download it.

The Chimp Paradox is the one that helped me most, and trust me, I've read them all.

The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle is good too.

A bit old fashioned but superb if you ask me is anything by Dr Claire Weekes. "Self help for your nerves" etc. nothing else I've read has come close and I think there is an audiobook.

I second that - Self help for your nerves is very good.
