How to have more courage

How to have more courage

Hi Steve Norton anxiety specialist, I won’t give you a little tip today I learnt, many, many years ago on how to have more courage. I’ve used it extensively and got some great results from it. It’s simple but very effective. 


How to feel more confident

Imagine someone that you admire, someone that you look up to and have that person in your mind and whenever you going to do something ask yourself the question, what would they do in this situation? How would they react in the situation? 

So I’m an admirer of Ant Middleton the guy from SAS who dares wins. Whenever I need to find courage, I ask myself what would he do in this situation? 

How would he react? How would he think?
Sometimes when I go to the gym, I feel tired and feel like going home but then I think what would Ant do now? Would he just pack in or would he push through?

Here’s what you should do

So is there someone in life you respect or admire? Is there someone you look up to?

When you need more courage you can imagine they are next to you spurring you on! What would they do in your situation, how would they think, how would they react?

Try this and let me know how you get on!

Best wishes

How to stop anger

The Pause

They say a moment of patience in a moment of anger saves you a hundred moments of regret.
Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
How to stop anger from spiralling out of control
God knows I’ve learnt this the hard way!
In the past I’ve severed friendships, hurt family, upset loved ones all because I’ve spoken when the red mist descended.
Thankfully as times gone by I’ve learned an important lesson which is what I call The Pause.
The Pause is that time gap that allows your emotions to subside and allow your sense to kick back in again.
By pausing before you react it stops so many problems.
I’ve been enraged by a text message only to read it an hour later only to find it reads completely differently to what I first thought.
How many times have you thought thank god I didn’t send that reply you were going to send?
Life has taught me to pause before I react now. Not always. I don’t always get it right but I’m learning.
As long as we’re learning we’re on track. We’re only human after all. We screw up but as long as we learn it’s ok.
So before you react, send that shitty text or post that reply ask yourself.
What will be the consequence of this? And is that the response that I want?
Learn to pause so your brain can catch up with the emotion.
Have a great day 🙂

Hypnotherapy by the session

So a question I get asked quite a bit is why don’t you let people pay by the session?

Here’s why. When you read the reviews it looks like the people who see me have an easy ride. Some do yes but some don’t. In my 4 session gold package clients often have a rough week as they go through the process.

How to have more self confidence!

Lack of self confidence often occurs because you look at what you’re NOT good at rather than what you are good at. You need to turn that thought process around.

The key to more self confidence

Think about this. You do so many good things every week but you never congratulate yourself on those things. You just take them for granted. Instead you focus on what you could have done better and criticise yourself about it.

You focus on your weakest areas and make them the focal point of your life. When you do this you become stuck in the loop of self doubt.

Here’s the truth

Just because you did something before and weren’t that good at it doesn’t mean you can’t do that thing in the future. That’s down to lack of experience rather than not being able to do it.

Nobody is the finished article when we are younger. You’re not even the finished article now!

If you want more self confidence you need to pat yourself on the back for all the things you do well. Focus on your strengths and what you’re good at.

Accept a bit of self praise and that will help you build up the areas that need more work.

It’s all about what you focus on!

Best wishes
