Feel The Fear and Do it Anyway
Not yet published
Do you keep making excuses to put off doing something you really want to do due to fear of failure?
Does a voice in your head keep asking “What if?”
Are you a perfectionist and a bit of a control freak?
Do you worry excessively about what other people think?
Well it might surprise you to hear this but this also used to be me and if I don’t consistently pull myself up on it, I can still fall back in to my old self-limiting way of thinking.
So how did I change things?
Well initially the biggest influence for me was attending a week long residential training course 15 years ago based on the teachings of Louise Hay the author of “You Can Heal Your life” and many other self-help books. I also bought an audio book (I was too lazy to read the hard copy!) of Dr Susan Jeffers’ “Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway” and these wonderful trailblazing ladies truly helped me to see things differenty and change my life.
Louise Hay's material taught me to reconnect with who I really am and made me realise that I could have a much more positive and fulfilling life just by taking some responsibility for myself and changing my negative self-talk and faulty thinking.
Susan Jeffers believes that in most cases fear is primarily an educational problem rather than a psychological one and that as we have learnt to be afraid we can also “unlearn” it and the best way to do that is to go ahead and do whatever we are afraid of! Now inititially that might too daunting but Susan has developed lots of different tools to help you to challenge and overcome those thoughts and almost 30 years after “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” was first published (and 2 million copies sold worldwide) later there are numerous testimonies form people that this approach has worked for.
How does this fit in with my other therapies?
Over the years I have trained in various other techniques that help address fears, such as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Clinical Hypnotherapy (both of which I now teach to others) and I also use Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT). All of these techniques can greatly help remove specific fears but tend to be most effective when working on a one to one basis with clients. However Susan Jeffer’s toolbox of "Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway" techniques can aslo be used in workshop group settings which has the added bonus of peer support and works out much cheaper per hour for the participants than one to one therapy sessions would.
I therefore decided to complete the facilitator training so that I could deliver "Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway" as a licenced instructor and I will be running my first full day workshop on Saturday 21st September 2019 at Salt Revive on Mill Lane in Beverey. The cost for the workshop is £125 but there is a special early bird price of £95 for the first 6 people who book before 31st August. The price include a 25th anniversay paperback edition of the book, a personal workbook and lunch.
