Fear is temporary – regret is for ever! Posted on 03 Jan 14:42 , 0 comments
What kind of people come to see me for help...
was a question I was recently asked. My reply was “brave people” come to see me. Not that I am scary, or at least I would like to think not, but some people who come to see me are often in a scary place in their lives.
Others perhaps needing a little guidance, or encouragement, others might want to simply change a negative belief or thought pattern, others might want more confidence or motivation, the kind of people who come to see me are every day people leading everyday lives, who want to better themselves, or to provide better for their families and loved ones. They want to progress in their chosen profession or career, others will want to find inner peace, or direction, others looking for more confidence or greater self esteem. Some people simply want to sound off in a safe non judgmental environment, and others may want to share ideas, worries or concerns.
The most difficult step is either picking up the phone to make the initial appointment or sending an email requesting an appointment. It can be scary to do this because it is an unknown. And yet people who do take that important step of attending the initial consultation quickly find they are welcome, their presenting worries and concerns are explored and understood, they hear a simple but informative explanation of the mind body connection, which dictates their negative thoughts, and importantly they also learn how easy it can be to put a plan together to change, adapt or remove the presenting issue.
Conditions of mind and body can often be mitigated or removed. Long standing fears, worries or self limiting beliefs and self sabotaging thoughts can be reversed. And all this begins with a simple phone call or email.
We all have the capacity to change if we want to, if we are willing to take part in our own healing and development. Time is rapidly passing, the days and weeks and months are flying by, and each day we don’t deal with our problems is another day we carry them, another day they delay us or prevent us from achieving those things we want to achieve.
And a time will come when we look back and see what we haven’t achieved, the things we have missed out on, the opportunities we have let slip past us, the relationships which could have been so much better.
I acknowledge that change can sometimes be scary, but it is never as scary as doing nothing. One thing we can remember which may help at those times of hesitation is that fear is temporary, but regret is forever.
So if you or someone you know is working through a difficult issue, or wanting to make an important change in your life, or you want to learn new ways of thinking positively, or to learn how to let go of those things no longer needed, consider picking up the phone or sending an email to me, and if you can’t attend my practice, consider Skype sessions with me.
