We as people sometimes work really hard to feel Bad about things.

We learn all of our behaviours from birth.

We learn from our experiences, family, friends, News, TV any form of information helps us to become the people we are.

Sometimes these learned experiences can become embedded as a bad or frightening experience. This can lead to it becoming a fear or phobia.


Because we learnt it in the first place we can teach ourselves how to learn to overcome it, reframe it and begin to process the emotions that you associate with the event.

By doing this you can return YOU to factory settings!!!
