Anxiety Cured With Dr. Claire Weekes
I have had so many readers who have found their anxiety cured by the Dr. Claire Weekes method that it’s something I recommend straight away, if you have heart palpitations, panic attacks or just general worry that makes you feel tight and tense, or short on breath. Best of all you can try her work at no cost.
Free Samples to Hear and Audiobook Downloads
There are free samples to listen to and free full downloads (with a 30-day trial) on Audible. Hope and Help For Your Nerves and Freedom From Nervous Suffering are both available on Audible. Who was Dr. Weekes and why was she so special? A good story about her can be found here.
Everybody’s Been Helped by Dr. Weekes
The Sydney Morning Herald – “People as diverse as 1960s housewives, the daughter of Richard Nixon’s drug czar, a British television producer, the late poet Les Murray, the singer Clare Bowditch, the famous US environmental activist Erin Brockovich, even prisoners have benefited from her work. The eminent anxiety specialist David Barlow, professor emeritus of psychology and psychiatry at Boston University, confirms she “created a treatment protocol to the unending benefit of tens of millions of patients over the years”.
Dr. Claire Weekes wrote 5 books over the course of her lifetime all of which are available at your favourite online bookstore or, likely, in your local library. Read the testimonials on Amazon to see how successful her books are at curing anxiety.

Depression and Someone to Talk To
If you are stuck with depression, need help now and are feeling blue (or worse) please call or email the Samaritans. I have had a fair bit of experience with this organisation over the years and they are trusted, tried and tested. In Britain, Charles, Prince of Wales is their patron.
It’s not religious, despite the name. The writer Monica Dickens was one of their earliest and most famous supporters – for the very good reason that the Samaritans work. Sometimes you just need to put the kettle on, make yourself a cup of tea, take a deep breath and pick up the telephone. Or send an email. I have friends who are Samaritans volunteers and they come from very impressive careers. They have trained with the organisation over many months and do this from the heart. Do call. They are waiting.
The Samaritans are part of Befrienders Worldwide and you can find your country listed here, if you are looking for a phone number to call. It’s free and covers 32 countries with 349 emotional support centres around the world. They offer SMS messaging, face-to-face support, internet chat and more – depending on your location. You can visit pages in your language. Go here now.
The Samaritans and You
The Samaritans offer anonymous, confidential telephone support from people trained in helping those of us with depression or suicidal feelings. The Samaritans have an excellent YouTube channel which explains what they do and offers good, useful self-help clips if you are having a difficult time.
You can email [email protected] or in Britain call 116 123. They have videos on controlled breathing and muscle relaxation which can help on YouTube and coping with change. They also have videos explaining what it’s like to call them. They are @samaritans on Twitter and the website is Samaritans.org where you can write them a letter, use the app or call from Skype.
The website is here if you need them. The telephone number is 135 247. They also have a good support contacts page with different numbers to ring here across Australia. An astrology chart is a fantastic resource, but sometimes you do need a friendly ear to listen, some practical advice and – the voice of experience.
This is the place to find Samaritans in the US and the number for you in New York is 212 673 3000.
New Zealand Samaritans
Find them here
And in New Zealand, their number is 0800 72 66 66.
The Black Dog Institute
This excellent website for everyone dealing with ‘the black dog’ of depression, worldwide – who needs facts and support is here
Beyond Blue is an equally useful website, no matter where in the world you are and what kind of depression you have. It has shared forums and discussions if you need them, and fact sheets.
Please remember, astrology and Tarot are here to help. And they do. But sometimes you need more, and you might need it now.
