'400.000 people in NZ are on medication for Anxiety (and Depression)' NZ Listener (Oct 22-28, 2011)
Given my knowledge of the workings of the brain I personally regard this as a crime against humanity. What is even worse is that it is a crime committed by the very people that should know better, the mental health profession.
Anxiety is not an illness! Stop buying into being written off as sick.
You are not suffering from a mental illness. Come to your senses before you find yourself wrongly placed on medication for the rest of your life.
Also, don't buy into the nonsense that you are in need of months and months of counselling.
Learn how to eliminate anxiety with a smile and confidence and without the need for medication or counselling.
Having suffered from anxiety attacks and agoraphobia for over 10 years I have been to several different counsellors, psychologists, and the phobic trust with limited improvements. After only a few sessions with Martin I feel like I am now the one in control and know that I am going to spend the rest of my life actually living and enjoying it rather than wasting it worrying and hiding away.- P
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and your programme, and to let you know how happy I am about the HUGE TURNAROUND effect it has had on my 20 year old daughter, who has been suffering from chronic panic attacks in addition to ongoing weight issues. Your programme has given my daughter a new lease on life and it has restored her confidence in herself and she now feels she is ready to take on the world and this is only half way through your programme.
I am a 23 year old mother. For the past 3 yrs I have not been able to be on my own anywhere in public for more than 5minutes suffering from Panic Attacks. With Martin's help and to everyone's amazement I have just travelled to Wellington and back by plane this weekend . I can't believe it. Martin was unfailing in his commitment to see me conquer my fears.
