I Marius Smook, am not a qualified medical professional of any sort. I am a layperson who cured himself of agoraphobia using a self-help method taught by Dr Claire Weekes, a medical practitioner who specialized in the cure of agoraphobia, panic attacks and anxiety.

This website and the chapters of my book contained therein is my sharing of my understanding of and experiences using the method together with some of my own discoveries.  Although I have now been completely cured of agoraphobia for more than 40 years, my work  is not intended to be the rendering of medical advice.

If you suffer from agoraphobia, panic attacks or any other form of medical, emotional, nervous or psychological disorder or problem, you must consult and obtain the approval of a qualified doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist or similar professional person and have received parental consent if you are under 18 years of age, before attempting any methods, theories, assistance, suggestions or otherwise offered herein.

Please note that I am building a directory of medical professionals all over the world who have experience using the Dr Weekes method and can provide individual support. Please subscribe to my email list to be notified when this resource is available.

First hand professional recovery instructions  are available in a book written by Dr Claire Weekes and published by Angus & Robertson in 1972, which is entitled; Peace From Nervous Suffering, extracts from which have been included, referred to and commented on by me in my book, with the publisher’s permission. These extracts can be easily identified as they are set in an italicized face and indented.

I have made copies of each chapter of my book, which I published once only in South Africa in 1999, available for any agoraphobia suffer to download, free of charge, from this website.

Peace From Nervous Suffering and any of the other books introduced on the website can be purchased from most book suppliers.
