Does fear and anxiety or phobias bother you, slow you down, or keep you from being at your best?
If so, then do we have the show for you!
Today we’re talking with Dr. John P. Forsyth, PhD, an internationally recognized author, speaker, and trainer in the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and practices that cultivate mindfulness, loving kindness, and compassion. He’s also the best-selling co-author of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety: A Guide to Breaking Free from Anxiety, Phobias, and Worry Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I’m excited for this talk, because in our day and age, it’s almost impossible to escape anxiety and fear, and John might even say it’s helpful for us.
So today we’ll be talking about what anxiety, fear, phobias and worry are all about, and how you can stop pushing them away, but instead break free from them, so you can feel better, experience greater freedom, and live the life you want to live. That plus why you don’t want to scratch the anxiety itch, special uses for bubble wands, why you should never tune in to Anxiety Radio, and why you must never, never ever think of pink elephants – beginning right now!
