recovery roadmap Nov 20, 2018

Have you ever seen a mind map? I usually create one for my clients during the assessment session for CBT. I call it a Recovery Roadmap. The principle I use with clients is that we look for processes that cause problems. So an example I use is this: Anxiety is the problem you might struggle with but anxiety is not the problem…it’s a consequence of the problem. Something causes your anxiety. Anxiety doesn’t just spring out of nowhere, right? It has to be caused by something else.

Depression is a consequence. Something causes your depression. You experience the depression as your ongoing daily experience but you’re actually experiencing the consequences caused by something else. It’s the something else that we need to deal with.

It’s the causes that need to be stopped. They need to be stopped from creating the consequences you struggle with. This is what I specialize in and this is what all therapy needs to do to have any impact on your life. I...

The real Matrix and what it makes you do.

the real matrix Oct 10, 2018

If you take a moment and consider the disconnect between your experience of what you feel/believe and what external reality tells/shows you then you have seen the power of the real matrix first hand. 

I see this every day in my clinical practice. People say they have no 'real' reason to be anxious or depressed, and yet they are. In this video I explain how this disconnect happens and what its' implications are for you. 


 If you can see the logic and simplicity of what I describe then you are in a position to make a choice. Free your mind from the shackles of strong and wrong negative beliefs. And move forward to now! Or don't!

I have created a new fantastically comprehensive CBT Treatment Program set up. Please check it out below if you are interested in feeling a lot better for Christmas.
