Anxiety Guidebooks

I’ve written THREE guidebooks on anxiety and ways to address it. “Seven Percent Slower” is a friendly guide to learning how to recognize and break the bad habit of speeding up when anxious or afraid.  “The Anxious Truth” is a comprehensive step-by-step anxiety recovery guide. “An Anxiety Story” is the story of  my journey through anxiety, panic and agoraphobia.

Thank you so much Drew for taking the time to make this podcast. It’s literally saved my life and ended panic attacks while they were happening. Thank you!

Drew has changed my life, highly recommend his methods. Claire Weeks broke the code years ago, but Drew teaches it in a way that is easy to understand and straight forward!

Listen to drew, put in the work, and get better. Drew has an incredible grasp on anxiety and his insights are spectacular. He really helps challenge the idea of just “coping,” and gives you the keys to start taking your life back.
