Do you have anxiety and don’t realise it

Do you have anxiety without even realising it? Can you relate to some of the following symptoms? A lot of people don’t even realise they’ve actually got anxiety because people with anxiety tend to have very similar ways of thinking.

So let’s run through some Anxiety traits and see if these resonate with you.

Paranoia. Do you feel like people are talking about you. Do you think that people are saying things behind your back. Do you feel as if people are plotting against you, saying nasty things all the time, if that was what you do, that is an anxiety trait

People pleasing. Always wanting to people, always wanting people to say thank you, always wanting to help people all the time, and you feel as if like, if you don’t do it for them, something will go wrong in their lives. So you feel as if almost as if you are responsible for their lives. If that sounds like you. That’s an anxiety trait.

Perfectionism. Are you a perfectionist? Do you want everything to be perfect? And even when it’s done you’re very self critical about your work or what you’ve done. And you always think critically about any work you’ve done. Picking fault with it thinking it could have been better. If so, That is it an anxiety trait.

There are so many anxiety traits that people don’t even realise, are part of the anxiety family. Especially when you start adding these things up. Lets say for instance you’re doing three of those things, you will be an anxious person. When we look at, anxiety, and the mechanics of it, generally, most people with anxiety, are doing the same things in their heads.

They’re creating the same results. I call it swimming with a shoal, the shoal of fishes. All people with anxiety do roughly the same sort of thinking patterns in the heads. And when we look at people who are happy, they’re not using those patterns.

How happy people think

They don’t think like that, they’re not paranoid and don’t feel as if they’re responsible for the world. They’re not overly critical, and all those other things. So what I do my anxiety programme is I’m basically teaching people how to change shoals.

So instead of following the shoal of anxiety people and doing what anxious people do and how they think, I teach people how happy people think. Because there’s a different way that happy people think, compared to how anxious people think. 

So if that sounds interesting, and you want to know more about it, you can book consultation with me. And as always, subscribe to this YouTube channel, and I’ll be getting new videos out every single week. So have a great day, and hope to hear from you soon. Bye for now.

Why is anxiety worse at night

Hi Steve Norton anxiety specialist here. One of the questions I get asked all the time is, why does anxiety happen at certain times of the day? Why does that tend to happen more daytime or night time? Now, to answer that properly, you’ve really got to understand, what I call the power of suggestion.

How anxiety is created

In fact, what you tell yourself is lining up the future anxiety. So quite often people say to me every morning when I wake up my anxiety is terrible. It’s bad first thing, and then as it goes on through the day. It then starts to diminish and by later on it’s all gone.
 
What they don’t realise when they say things like that is that they’re actually lining it up in their mind and almost ordering it through the very language that they speak. Now I know that might sound quite outrageous to someone who’s not in the psychological field like I am. This is absolutely true though, your own language patterns are actually planning and lining up your future anxiety.
 
So when people say to me “why is my anxiety terrible at night, why is it terrible in the morning”? They tell me, hour by hour about how it changes throughout the day. They don’t realise that they’re actually planning, and using that hypnotic suggestion on themselves.
 

How anxiety becomes programmed

And people often say to me “my anxiety is terrible at night, that’s why I’ve got to put the telly on to go to sleep, because I know my anxiety is going to be worse”. “I can’t have any quiet because if I’m quiet, it’s going to get worse”. What they’re actually doing is telling their brain to make them anxious.

And if you do it every day and you tell yourself that over and over and over again you’re going to make that a habit.  You’re going to make that into a reality. But like all things in life that you practice, If you practice practice having anxiety at night or in the morning when you wake up, you’re going to have it.
 

The solution to anxiety at night

So what we really need to do instead is actually start to talk to yourself, so that you’re getting the results that you want instead. Which is, you want to have a nice relaxed night. You want to feel good in the morning. Well, in order for that to happen. That’s what you’ve got to start telling yourself, will happen.
 
Now obviously, that’s not going to happen right away. If you’ve for years been telling yourself that every night you go to bed, you’ve got terrible anxiety but it is a start. That’s what you must start to do, you must start to decondition or recondition your mind. How you talk to you is everything, and it is determining so many results in your life right now.
 
I hear people on on Facebook and they’ll say stuff like, oh my God every day when I go to bed. I know I won’t be able to go to sleep and to them, it’s quite an innocent statement. To their mind though it is a command. So be very careful what you tell yourself about you, because the things you tell yourself create your future.
 
So I hope that helps and I hope that gives you that answer that you’re looking forward that if you need any more help. You can either hit me up on here, send me a message.

Anxiety treatment results

So today I interviewed for my former client to check on her anxiety treatment results. So, I love to do these sort of things. And if anybody knows me, they know that I love to do everything unscripted. I like the natural flow of conversation in unscripted interviews. 

Former client interview

I love just doing things off the cuff, and I never rehearse things. I  just like to get out and do it and especially for my first Instagram Live video for the day. That’s exactly what I wanted to do, and I’m posting here today because I’m actually going to post an interview one of my former clients. A lovely lady called Becky Williams, and she is one of the most inspirational clients I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.

What happened after she joined my program?

Becci’s had quite an amazing journey since she first came to see me and joined my program just over a year ago.  We’ve been in touch a few times since. It’s an important part of my work to check on my former client anxiety treatment results.

Long term benefit is the what we are looking for. It’s easy to feel good for a few weeks but what happens when therapy stops?

I’ve been watching her little journey online, and how she’s developed as a person and what she’s done in her own personal life. Quite honestly see is very very inspirational to me, and I’m dying to hear a lot more about how she’s got where she is today. Watch the video to find out what she’s planning to do for the future

Does counselling work for Anxiety

Hi Steve not an anxiety specialist here, I want to talk to you about something I hear almost every single week. Does counselling work for Anxiety? Often people tell me that they’ve tried counselling in the past, and they’re going back and try it again.

What is counselling good for?

Now, the thing with counselling is very very good for us to think bereavement, when we’ve lost somebody and you just need to talk to someone that’s really really good counselling is amazing for that. But let’s say for instance you’ve got anxiety.

You can’t just talk away anxiety you can’t just have a conversation about it and then that anxiety just going to disappear by itself. Does counselling work for Anxiety?  Counselling to try to get rid of anxiety is a bit like taking a toothpick to try to knock down a house. It isn’t going to work.

And when you think about the logic behind what most people do is they have counselling and then 5 to 10 years later they go back and have some more of it. So if it didn’t work before. It’s not going to work again. And it was Albert Einstein actually said that the definition of madness is trying to get a different result by doing the same thing.

What we need to do instead help with anxiety!

So we understand what counselling really is it is it isn’t for anxiety. Anxiety is very much a mind programme, it is like, almost like a computer virus that gets stuck in your mind. So simply talking about it won’t remove it. You’ve got to go into the source,

You’ve got to go into the, the hard drive if you like of the brain, and dig it out. It’s almost like or like imagine if you had a problem with your boiler, would you expect the boiler man to come around every week just have a chat about that, would you expect that to actually fix the problem. No you wouldn’t.

Anxiety is exactly the same, anxiety needs specific tools and techniques to remove it. So, if you’re one of these people who is anxious, and for years you’ve tried things in the past that haven’t worked.It simply makes no sense to go back to do more things that didn’t work. Does that even make sense?

No, of course it doesn’t. In order to change, anxiety, you’ve got to do something completely differently, you’ve got to, you’ve got to go see someone who deals with a day in day out. Who, that’s their bread and butter.

To summerise

So if you’ve got anxiety, and you want to get some help with it, jump on the phone, I can honestly say to people. I never persuade anyone to come to my programme. In fact it’s Tommy’s his way around.

If I don’t feel you’re right for the programme with a dog feel like you’re not ready for it as simply would never take on as a client. I only take on people that genuinely think I can help. So I hope that clears things up about counselling, and I hope to hear from you soon if got any questions, feel free to ask me, send me a message, and let’s jump on the phone.

Let’s get rid of anxiety for good.
