Expert Ways to Work with Anxiety (That Can Help Even Your Most Anxious Clients)


Anxiety can cripple lives.

It can suffocate our clients’ personal and professional growth, shut down their ability to start relationships and take away their freedom to choose their own destiny.

The worst part? Without successful treatment, anxiety can then become a ravenous vacuum - sucking our clients’ confidence and talents and leaving them vulnerable to the “quick fixes” that only serve to sustain their fear.

But to effectively treat anxiety, we first have to understand how it thwarts the vagus nerve from calming the body. We have to look at the specific way ambiguity triggers anxiety and how the brain colludes with a panic physiology to wire anxiety into the nervous system.

That’s why we put together this new short course . . .
