Get rid of anxiety

I want to talk a little bit about how to get rid of anxiety and one of the reasons why so many people with anxiety don’t actually end up getting the help for it.

Help for anxiety 

And obviously I’ve analysed this for a long time over the last 25 years. And for the last 25 years I have literally must have sat through 1000’s of hours of telephone consultations with people.

Hundreds of hours of reading messages from people on the internet who sent me messages telling me about their anxiety has ruined in their life and that they’ve not done anything for years.  Yet here’s the amazing thing, when you do actually then offer people the solution, many of them then go quiet.

They then start going, OK I’ll think about it. When you think about that and if you’ve had anxiety for years and it’s ruining your life and then somebody provides you with a solution. You’d think they’d jump at it. Why do they go quiet with it? Why don’t they go ahead with it? Here’s one of the reasons why, it isn’t every reason but it is definitely one of the reasons. It’s because they are looking for the magic pill.

The magic get rid of anxiety pill

They are looking for someone like myself to do some sort of miraculous thing that will just take their anxiety away without them having to do anything about it. And I’m very, very honest with anyone who ever comes to my anxiety programme, or even books in chat with me.

I always tell them that it always takes work, you always have to work at whatever it is that you have to do.

Now, let’s just imagine though, let’s imagine, let’s play devil’s advocate and pretend there was someone out there whereby you didn’t have to put the effort in. You could just go to see someone like myself and this amazing person was able just to take away your anxiety, years of anxiety, whatever it is all those symptoms you’ve got, and you wouldn’t have to work on it. Imagine that!

How much would that cost you? What would they charge for that service? They could charge whatever they wanted. In fact, they probably just wouldn’t work with regular people, they don’t be working with people like royalty, celebrities, millionaires, billionaires! 

Reality time

Back to reality, though, that doesn’t exist, that person out there does not exist. Everyone that joins my program has to work at it. This is one of the questions I get asked all the time was well.

How much time do I need to work on it Steve? And I’ll say, roughly, the average person has to put in two to three hours a week on my program for 12 weeks in order for it to be successful. They often reply, two or three hours a week, I don’t know I’ve got the time for that! Two to three hours yes, but think about this.

If you’ve got anxiety, you’re anxious for 16 hours a day. It actually works out at 112 hours a week. So if you’re not prepared to put three hours a week in versus 112 hours. Well then you’re going to have anxiety forever. So what I’m saying to you is this. Don’t look for that magic pill, don’t look for that special technique that someone’s offering.

When they say I’ll get rid of anxiety forever in about 20 minutes. It doesn’t exist, if they could do that that we charge in a million pounds of session. So, if you are serious about getting rid of anxiety and you’re considering going to my programme, I’m always very honest with people.

Nothing happens all by itself

You do have to work at it, everything in life that’s ever been worthwhile doing. It took effort. And if you’ve got anxiety and you’ve had it for a long time yes a little bit of a bugger to get rid of, but it’s not impossible. You just need to work with it, or work with me and we can do it, we can change it.

So, I hope that makes sense. And hopefully we get you on the anxiety program, and get rid of it, because it’s it’s raining on your parade it’s fine your life, you don’t have to have it. I’ve now been in anxiety free now for over 30 years and it’s not coming back and it’s gone.

So, when people take that you can’t get rid of it. Ditch those people, it doesn’t have to be a permanent thing. So I hope that makes sense, and I’ll see you again soon for another video. Bye for now.

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.

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

Steve

The benefits of anxiety

The Benefits of Anxiety

Hi, Steve Norton anxiety specialist here. Are you afraid of giving up the anxiety benefits? 

Anxious about losing anxiety!

Are you afraid of giving up the anxiety benefits? Anxiety benefits what can they be? Let me give you an example, quite often when people will send me messages and say yes, I’ve got terrible anxiety and when I offer them the solution to that and say, yes, we can help you with that.

We can make you feel more confident. We can make you feel more relaxed. We can make you feel so much better inside that person suddenly thinks. 

Anxiety and your identity

I’ve never known that person! What will I be like as a person with that and suddenly they start fearing the idea of losing their anxiety because they have got an identity as an anxious person.

At some level they are getting benefits from having anxiety, and some of those benefits could be, is that they’re able to use it as an excuse not to do things. They can use excuse to get out of things, you can get attention from it.

You can control situations and you may be allowed not to go to work because of it. There are so many different things. So quite often when people ring me up and I start talking about life without anxiety they start thinking wait a minute. Do I really want to get rid of it,  because sometimes anxiety can be  quite a cushy little number.

Your doubts about who you are?

If I have got to get rid of anxiety and live as a regular person am I able to do it? Who will I be? I don’t know myself as that person and suddenly the idea of losing anxiety becomes actually scarier than the idea of keeping it.

So quite often when people call and ask can I help them and I say yes, I can help, I’ll never hear back from them because they have  decided that there’s more benefits in keeping anxiety. 

That’s not in every case obviously because I do work with a lot of people with anxiety, but I often get people back out when they think about it. They suddenly realise that there’s more to lose than to gain and they’re choosing to be anxious for the benefits.

So I hope that helps you a little bit more idea and insight into the  psychology of the mind. It’s a fascinating thing at times working with people that anxiety 

You think it’d be really quite clear cut with anxiety. They don’t want it. It’s not always the case. So I hope that makes sense. I’ll see you again soon for another video.
