Stress and Anxiety. Looking for a way to help reduce it? Call our Leeds practice 0113 238 5597

Stress, anxiety and depression. 

Over the years I’ve seen how destructive depression, stress and anxiety can be to an individual, where it  knocks their confidence,  erodes their self esteem, destroys their relationships, ends their careers and affects their health.

With the desire to self heal, I was led to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) a number of years ago, which is an amazing therapy, that I use daily in my practice helping people to  reduce stress and anxiety simply and often with instant results. Speak to Emma for more information.

Are your limiting beliefs holding you back?

Leeds & Manchester coaching

"All things are possible"

Feeling stuck? On that repeat cycle?… Do you want to change them??..

Beliefs are generalisations about causation, meaning and limits. The generalisations might apply to the world around us, to specific behaviours, to capabilities, and to identity. Beliefs are usually views of ourselves or of the world which cannot easily be changed by information or reason.

Suppose you have a belief that you are unattractive or you’re not a clever person’. How would you react when someone approaches you and says “You look very nice in that shirt or dress” “that was an intelligent point” Depending on the circumstances, you may dismiss, discount or deflect their positive feedback. Internally you may think that they have not looked at it in details and when they do they will find something wrong and change their opinion.

Suppose all day, people tell you that you you’re attractive or you’re clever – do you really hear them? Not likely! and then one person points out that your nose looked a bit big on those holiday pictures, or the point you made at work last week was a bit odd. Does this resonate for you? You bet it does! It verifies you belief about yourself. From a ‘filter’ perspective, you have deleted and distorted the positive feedback and focused on the Negative.

Limiting Beliefs

Beliefs are in ourselves

What beliefs do you have about yourself? About others? About the World? that limit who you can be or what you can accomplish?

Remember all things are possible……

Anxiety and Depression research by Karen Melrose from University of Warwick.

I heard Karen talk yesterday on the Radio about depression and anxiety, i’ve also found in my practices that therapies such as EFT and Inner Repatterning can help in reducing anxiety…

“Rank” of suffering may stop people seeking help for depression and anxiety

People’s judgements about whether they are depressed depend on how they believe their own suffering “ranks” in relation to the suffering of friends and family and the wider world, according to a new study.

Research from the Department of Psychology at the University of Warwick finds that people make inaccurate judgements about their depression and anxiety symptoms – potentially leading to missed diagnoses as well as false positive diagnoses of mental health problems.

This is of particular concern as vulnerable individuals surrounded by people with mental health problems may decide not to seek help because, compared to those around them, they perceive their suffering to be less severe than it actually is.

Conversely, those surrounded by people who feel depressed very rarely may incorrectly believe that their suffering is abnormal, simply because their symptoms appear to be more severe in comparison to others.

Researchers performed two experiments which found that people’s judgments of whether they were depressed or anxious were not mainly predicted by their symptoms’ objective severity – but by where they ranked that severity compared with their perception of others’ symptoms.

The study showed that participants’ beliefs about the distribution of symptoms in the wider population varied greatly.

For example ten per cent of participants thought that half the population felt depressed on at least 15 days a month, and ten per cent thought they felt so on two days or fewer a month.

Ten per cent of participants thought that half the population felt anxious on at least 26 days a month, whereas ten per cent thought they felt so on seven days or fewer.

Lead researcher Karen Melrose from the University of Warwick said: “It is the patient that initiates most GP consultations about depression and anxiety, so that personal decision to see a doctor is a vital factor in determining a diagnosis.

“Given that fact, our study may explain why there are such high rates of under and over-detection of depression and anxiety.

“Worryingly, people who could be the most vulnerable to mental health disorders – for example those from certain geographical areas of the country or demographic groups where depression and anxiety are high – could be the very ones who are at highest risk of missed diagnoses.

“This research could help health professionals better target information campaigns aimed at these groups.”

The paper, Am I Abnormal? Relative Rank and Social Norm Effects in Judgements of Anxiety and Depression Symptom Severity was published in the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making. Notes to editors: Or for a draft copy please email Melrose is available at
