“Please help me get unstuck from this feeling”

Every week people are asking me questions like these below. They have lots of questions, really, but essentially people are all asking the same thing:

  • Why can’t I get rid of this feeling?
  • What can I do about my anxiety?
  • Where do I start? It’s all so confusing….
  • Can I really do anything about this awfulness and fear?
  • What is wrong with me?

Instead of feeling anxious all the time imagine if you could:

  • Focus on what is really important for you
  • Get things done without that awful, dragging feeling
  • Feel okay about yourself and your ability to manage problems
  • Understand why you think and feel the way you do
  • Find some peace and quiet inside your head
  • Know what anxiety really is and how to change it
  • Feel your inner strength, confidence and be at ease

Within this new course is the best place to start. In this course you will:

  • Learn about your brain
  • Understand how you’re really thinking and feeling
  • Build your awareness around these processes
  • Work alongside and with your brain to make changes (hint: don’t fight with it)
  • Learn how to change the way you habitually respond to these processes

In this course I’m going to help you do these things using a CBT approach.

  • Cognitive behaviour therapy is based on neuroscience research.
  • Research shows us that brains are ever-changing.
  • You have a learning and adaptive brain that is constantly re-organizing itself.
  • By working alongside your brain you can change the way you think, feel and behave.

This is an exciting to think about your brain.

You have the ability to rewire and change the way you think and feel.

And this course starts you off on the first step.

What is this course about?

In this course you will begin to learn simply and clearly just what is happening inside your brain. It’s an easy way to start to understand how brains function.

I use this exact same process with each of my clients at the beginning of therapy.

We’ll pay attention to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

In this course provides a step-by-step process  – we will use real-time exercises to help you understand your brain better.

You will get to know the difference between thoughts and feelings and learn some basic strategies and ideas to help you modify them.

When you sign up, you get immediate access to the video course.

I’ll also give you a copy of my e-book – Your brain on anxiety and what you can do about it

Let me know if this sounds familiar:

  • You decide you don’t want to worry any more. You hate the feelings and the ongoing awfulness of the thinking. You feel bad all the time. You feel scared.
  • You decide to think positively, argue logically with your brain, to ignore awful feelings and do what you need to do, to focus on the tasks rather than listen to the worry, to distract yourself with phones, exercises, people or TV, to stop doing things that make you feel anxious or (fill in the gap with what YOU do)
  • You keep doing some or all of these activities, switching between them, hoping that if you keep working at things, the anxiety will go away, or at least leave you alone for a bit.
  • But does it? Do you notice that you are starting to feel more relaxed? Or is your head becoming more insistent, thinking more, worrying more, reacting more fearfully and even faster to situations?
  • You wonder what, if anything, you can do to make it better.
  • Sometimes you give up, try to ignore the awfulness and keep on with your life – but you still feel STUCK…….

This is how most people respond to anxiety – and some people actually get through it okay. A lot of people don’t. Their anxiety becomes worse.

Wouldn’t it be great if it didn’t have to be this way?
