Sensitive Issues

Introduction

When problems are left unresolved they become long-term and gradually they overwhelm the best of us.

The ability to control our own lives gets lost.

Whether it’s a negative emotion, such as anger, fear, sadness, guilt, hurt, anxiety, and so on, a solution can be found.

Overcoming limiting beliefs such as “I’m not good enough”, “I can’t make money”, and “I’m hopeless at relationships” require a fundamental shift, a fundamental change in thinking.

And it can be done.

So, why settle for less?

At times in life we experience confidence issues which in part stem from the way we think about ourselves – limiting beliefs.

These obstacles need to be tackled, overcome and eliminated.

Perhaps it’s best to see problems as nothing more than challenges that can be met, and successfully navigated.

Know Your Mind can help you with a range of difficulties such as anxiety, social anxiety, simple and complex phobias, obsessions, fears, compulsions, confusion and so on.

Change occurs naturally – the question is: is it positive and life-affirming?

Whether it’s an obsession, a form of anxiety, a phobia, or to unlock your dreams, to make it happen requires action.

We are committed to helping people to accept the challenge to overcome any obstacle or setback once they make the key decision, they are serious about helping themselves.

Our philosophy is simple. Empower people to take control of their thoughts, emotions, behaviour and their actions and they will prosper.

So if your life is not working the way you want it to be, why not accept the challenge and do something about it?

The change required may be nowhere near as daunting as you imagine!

If you change your thinking, your behaviour will change, and if your behaviour changes you will get different results.

Make a decision to take action.

Anxiety

Fear is perfectly normal. Anxiety can stop you from taking unreasonable risks. However, many people become afraid of situations that are not particularly dangerous. Anxiety occurs when the perceived difficulty of a situation appears to be much greater than a person’s perceived resources. In fact, virtually all anxiety disorders can be overcome. So, what is anxiety? It is a future-based concern that may involve a sense of fear. Examples of “anxiety” include public speaking, fear of heights, wild storms, visiting the doctor or dentist… 

Overcome Constant Worry Leading to Anxiety

All of worry us from time to time. Let’s face it, in the modern world there an awful lot to worry about! So, what can you do about it? You have an intelligent mind, it’s a mind that allows you to imagine, dream, and hope.
It’s also a mind that worries and anticipates negative outcomes. You mind is never still, not even when you’re snoring! All of this is quite normal, if there is such a thing. However, some people are habitual worriers, deep worriers. In many instances worry and its cousins manifests itself in the inability…  

Managing Stress

What is stress? The most commonly accepted definition of stress is that it is a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that “demands exceed the personal and social resources they are able to mobilize in a situation.” We can easily become irritable, jumpy, edgy and anxious. These symptoms of stress reduce the ability to work effectively on your own and with other people. Whenever we experience an unexpected event, or have to deal with something that frustrates us, “stress” is generated. If the… 

Phobias

Fears and phobias limit your ability to get the most from your life. In extreme cases the fear can prevent you from living even a relatively normal life. In all cases the “fear” can be overcome – not necessarily with medical treatment, but through learning how to manage your own thoughts and feelings. Most single-issue phobias and “fears” can be resolved in a short period of time using NLP, emotional intelligence, hypnosis and Time Line Therapy. Even complex phobias such as fear of flying or claustrophobia can be overcome through the same… 

Relationships

“Relationship” issues can be tough to resolve on your own. Relationship advice from friends, colleagues, well-meaning, and well-intentioned people  is nice but rarely solves the problem. Professional counselling can help. “Counselling” can create the right atmosphere so the “best” solutions can be identified and tackled with confidence. This applies to marriage counselling, couples counselling, or when counselling is required for other situations, such as work related. Do any of these relationship situations apply to you… 

Limiting Beliefs

The goal for any desired outcome should be simple: Have a method of managing your “emotions” so you can leverage your physical and mental resources in the most optimum way. Limiting beliefs and lack of confidence will restrict your ability to succeed. What you believe affects your habits and confidence no matter what ideally you set your heart on. All limiting beliefs are preceded by a limiting decision we make about ourselves usually during a significant emotional event when we are quite young, or in a stressful… 

Internal Conflict

“Conflict” is defined as “a state of disharmony between incompatible persons, ideas, or interests.” Psychologically, conflict is a mental struggle, sometimes an unconscious struggle, which happens when conflicting internal representations of the world are held. Conflicts can occur either between parts of ourselves internally (inner conflict) or externally with others (interpersonal conflict). The dilemma posed by an internal conflict is usually an emotional or ethical over-reaction to the way we respond to a difficult situation. Internal conflict…

Motivation

I’m sure you have all experienced a lack of motivation on occasions when you just knew you had to get something done, but for the life of you, you simply couldn’t rouse yourself enough to act. For many, it can be a mild case of procrastination, or even a severe problem such as the fear of failure. Some mornings you just want to stay in bed, warm, comfortable, cosy and secure. “Go away, world!” you think. Other mornings? You seem able to leap out of bed and greet the day ready for anything that gets thrown at you… 

Weight Loss

Do weight loss programs seem attractive to you? Does a quick fix weight loss diet seem all too appealing? “If I could just do a quick weight loss program I would then alter my eating habits!” Sound familiar? In general, why do people overeat? Well, it can be complex. But it’s more or less an in-the-moment activity based on the belief that it will make you feel good. To succeed, reducing weight needs an approach that switches from “feelings” to a more visual approach. Let’s face it, we all want to look better, don’t we? Keep in mind… 

Depression

Depression is a serious mental illness. It is vital for a person suffering from this condition, or if they feel that they may be suffering in this way, to go and see a doctor. A thorough assessment of a person’s physical and mental health is essential. Professional help is always available. Don’t wait – act. An important area that can help to produce results is the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This form of counselling intervention can be used to complement medication. It includes monitoring the thoughts… 

Quit Smoking

Is smoking addictive or is it just a bad habit? So when do people smoke? Some people smoke in the morning in order to “wake up”. Others smoke during the day to “reduce stress,” or to “concentrate”. Others smoke at night to “relax”. Sometimes some people smoke because it’s the one thing they do for themselves to bring some private pleasure into their lives. Attempting to quit smoking without finding alternatives to the important reasons why people smoke can lead to a series of new problems. And they won’t quit…
