What I want to talk about today is depression. Now often when people got the doctors what they’re told is that the reason for depression is because we’ve got a chemical imbalance.
Are anxiety and depression genetic? One thing we DO know is that it can be taught to children. If you have young children you might want to watch this video.In this short video I will explain why anxiety and depression can be passed through the generations so rather than it being genetic it can be learned.

With so much information about anxiety online these days it’s hard to seperate the facts from the fiction! Here is what most people aren’t telling you about anxiety….
The TRUTH can be hard to accept….at first.
All psychological problems don’t exist in reality. We make them up. They are a thought that we entertain. They are part of a fantasy we create. Then we utterly convince ourselves that they’re real and then we have a problem.
When I had anxiety I believed it was real. It felt real. It was happening to me. I woke up and it was there. In the pit of my stomach. It was the first thing I looked for when I woke up. I then knew I was going to have a bad day.
I then mentally planned my day. What could go wrong? What if this happened, what if that happened. Then I felt more anxious waiting for those things to occur. What I didn’t realise at the time is that I was PLANNING these things to happen.
How does anxiety start?
You see what you think about your mind thinks you want. If you imagine negative scenarios and endings your mind thinks you want this. Your mind gets to work on it.
The facts about anxiety is that most psychological issues are caused by the person creating habitual thought patterns. Running them through enough times so that they become their everyday thinking. Then they mould a life around the belief that they have a psychological problem.
Keeping control of your imagination
A lot of clients I see have convinced themselves that they in a worse place than what they actually are. My job is to break the habitual thought pattern and replace it with something more in line with what they want.
So now you know the facts about anxiety, If you can relate to this and would like to discuss this further please feel free to message me on here or via my website.
Not what was expected? People who go for counselling or CBT often expect something that would give them some strategies that would help them to overcome their anxiety. They often wait a long time for an appointment and leave feeling more frustrated. They’re not alone. Approximately 90% of my clients have been through counselling and CBT and found it didn’t help or in some cases made them feel worse. So if you’re disappointed by counselling or CBT you are not alone.
Don’t worry about not blending in!
Don’t ever worry about being different. Having your own views and ideas. Not following the crowd. Every successful person the world over became so NOT because they rolled with everyone else, but because they followed their own heart.
Traits of successful people
When you look at the people who have changed the world you see that they are different from every one else. They care far less about the opinions of people and care more about what they are passionate about. You don’t see Bill Gates dripping in Gucci clothes that’s because he doesn’t care if his look doesn’t fit in. He is secure in himself.
Don’t hang onto someone else’s coat tails. Be your own person. You do what YOU want to do. You BE what you want to be. You don’t have to seek permission or any one else’s approval. Be a free spirit even if it goes against the flowing of the tide.
Make it so that there’s nobody in this world like you. Not even close.
Have a great day and don’t forget to shine ⭐️
