Bev Aisbett is an author, illustrator, cartoonist and counsellor. She has had over eleven books published, most notably the national bestsellers Living with It: A Survivor’s Guide to Panic Attacks and Taming the Black Dog: A Guide to Overcoming Depression. Over the last fifteen years, Bev’s freelance illustrations and cartoons have appeared in the major press and numerous community and corporate publications. An experienced counselor, Bev has designed a unique recovery program designed to educate people about anxiety and provide them with the tools with which to build their own recovery, just as Bev herself has done. The Art of Anxiety workshop (formerly Working with IT) has since guided thousands of people in the ‘art’ of effectively managing anxiety and related conditions since 1998.
