The FEAR Model helps restore the body to function as intended. Emotional stress and anxiety messes up the nervous system, increases emotional fatigue and degenerates the body quickly. By using the FEAR model steps regularly, you’ll achieve heightened emotional well-being , a higher level of energy, creativity, and greater life satisfaction. A sufferer who recently went through the course wrote the following feedback, “Very good, informative, eye and mind opening. I wish I had known all that 20 years ago. It would have made my life much easier and successful.” Also, since anxiety and stress often speed up body degeneration, looking a lot younger has also been noted among regular users of the FEAR model steps. The FEAR Model steps can also be adapted to bring about natural weight loss by transforming the emotional and mental pathways that reinforce weight-gain in the brain. Personal transformation. The FEAR model takes you or your client to a new, higher level regarding emotional wellbeing, work, relationship and makes you a different person in many ways. We become what we think about all the time. Once your thought-life has been transformed, life transformation is inevitable. A course attendee shared this testimonial recently. “I am a mum of an anxious teenager (OCD). I now have a few more tools in my kit bag. Thought provoking. Simple techniques for what may be complex problems, but doable steps to recovery.” Personal Growth, Influence and Recognition. If you are a therapist in practice, most clients that will come to you are more likely to have received two or more therapy interventions in the past. They have come to you to see if you offer anything different and long-lasting from what they have experienced in the past. Mastering The FEAR model sets you apart from the pack by offering your clients a simple system that offers transformation and long-lasting effect than they have experienced in the past. This builds credibility, recognition and expands your practice. Every happy client often tells at least 3 other prospects about his/her experience. This then leads to more appointments for you. Your clients will value and respect you more for your helpful insight and attention to details. All of these benefits come as a result of your desire for personal growth to explore the FEAR model. “The course was extremely helpful and informative. Interesting, excellent and enjoyable. It enables me to help so many adults and children within the support groups I run,” J. Morgan, Parent Rep and Support Group Facilitator It saves money and increases practice turn-over. Many sufferers who have gone through the FEAR model course wished they had attended the course many years ago, as this would have saved them not just a lot of money but also time and a lot of emotional and physical pain. As a therapist in practice, we know that word of mouth is the most effective advertising tool especially for therapists in practice. This can translate to more organic referrals from transformed and happy clients, leading to the increase in your turn-over as a practitioner.

The FEAR model works for children, teenagers, adults, as well as the elderly, and you can start using the recovery steps immediately the course is over (In fact, some people experience noticeable positive transformation during the course of the workshop itself)... Already being used in over 30 countries around the world by therapists, coaches, teachers, carers, social workers, company executives, athletes and various individuals, the model does not only transform anxiety-related disorder, it also eliminates irrational fears ( that breed anxiety and depression), transforms limiting beliefs ( which often contribute to low-self esteem ad underachievement), and builds self-confidence to achieve goals in spite of obstacles and limitations... Why don't you come and judge for yourself? If you feel this course can benefit you or any of your family members, friends or colleagues, why don't you let them know about the event and give it a try? Those who have attended the event in the past always said that they were glad they made the investment even though they were a little bit unsure at the start (See previous attendees feedback below). WHAT TO DO NEXT All you need to do is to register your ticket to attend this event now. The event is expected to be oversubscribed as there are very limited spaces. The original price for this course is £100. WHY IS THE EVENT SUBSIDISED AND WHAT'S THE CATCH? The first reason this course is subsidised is networking. Relationships are very important. In a live event like this, there is ample opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share experiences, get motivated and discover what is working for others. I have been able to meet and connect with some amazing people in events such as this one. The second reason why this is a subsidised event is the feedback that we get from our attendees. This is extremely useful. It helps us improve our courses and get better in serving others. IS THIS GOING TO BE A HARD SELL? We practise authenticity because that is one of our highest values. MindBody Breakthrough does not use hard selling tactics because manipulation eventually leads to failures and stress at some point down the line. If you enjoy the day and think that any of our materials, online courses or future workshops can be beneficial to you personally or to your work, then we can discuss options once you have completed this full day. We just want you to come and enjoy the day, acquire additional helpful skills and make new friends. Spot allocation is on a first-come-served basis due to limited availability. If you are planning to attend please reserve your spot now. I look forward to seeing you there, Best regards Wale Oladipo Lead Coach & Therapist, Mind Body Breakthrough Introduction: Regardless of the therapeutic approach that you adopt, and the quality of work you put in as a therapist, if the treatment of the two notorious sabotaging agents (intrusive thoughts and the inner critical voice) are not included in your therapy sessions, chances are the positive changes in your clients will be short-lived. Whether you specialise in treating OCD, panic attacks, depression, PSTD, phobias, eating disorder, GAD, or any other anxiety-related disorder, and using various modalities, such as, CBT, EFT, client-centred, psychoanalytic, mindfulness, and other therapy techniques, this course aims to provide you with invaluable therapy skills to further make a positive impact in the lives of your clients, ensuring that their recovery is long-lasting. Intrusive thoughts and the inner critical voice are not only the most powerful breeders and sustainers of anxiety disorders, but also the most brutal outlets of anxiety that mastermind relapses in anxiety patients during their sessions or after they finish their therapy sessions. Recent studies show that more than 80% of anxiety patients who have gone through therapy are not better-off after two years than their counterparts who have not received any therapy. The reason is that almost every anxiety disorder is accompanied by intrusive thoughts or the inner critical voice which continues to generate unwanted negative thoughts, images, and unpleasant ideas that are upsetting, distressing, and causing more anxiety for the clients. And it is this obsessive and disruptive thinking that eventually cancels out the good work of the therapists. Compulsive intrusive thoughts and the inner critical voice cannot be eliminated by asking patients to think more positively, or by hypnotic auto-suggestions alone, or even by equipping them with distraction techniques. This is why intrusive thoughts and the inner critical voice outlast many therapy sessions. Why? This is because apart from the fact that these inner critics are compulsive, they are also established personalities within the psyche, having their own emotions, feelings and carrying out specific protective roles of preventing the clients from bigger “subconscious threats”. This course will introduce you to the useful tools that you can start using immediately. More Testimonials: “Really positive sessions.
