Who is Anna Gibson Steel and how does her program work?
I have already seen two doctors and two consultants about my depression and overwhelming waves of panic, and, after more than a year of drugs and counseling, have seen no breakthroughs in the intensity or frequency of my attacks – in fact, it would be fair to say that I now seem deeper in the grip of my moods than before. I’m also concerned about the nature of the drugs I have been prescribed – including Prozac – and the dose was recently doubled! I was becoming increasingly concerned about the potential side-effects of the medication, and frustrated by the endless hours of talking through my condition with a series of earnest and well-meaning nurses, who have never experienced my symptoms. Aside from the time and the drugs, I was creating more anxiety around the very real possibility that I might lose my job, especially if my colleagues got to hear that I was on Prozac!
When I first heard about Ms Steel’s program, I confess I was skeptical – how could a ‘distance learning’ program help where so much ‘face-to-face’ therapy had failed? Nevertheless, I reckoned I had nothing to lose, and I was keen to learn anything I could to try to understand and cope with my attacks.
The video training is presented by Ms Gibson Steel, and she begins by sharing her personal struggles with panic and anxiety. From the get-go I realised that she understood what I was going through and that her first-hand experience was genuine. Knowing that she has been there herself is incredibly reassuring, and this instantly builds your confidence in her.
Secondly, the therapeutic method she has developed doesn’t involve prescriptions or hours of counseling; it’s an amazingly simple, and extremely effective, physical action you can use to reverse your anxiety on the spot. This is demonstrated on video and easy to master for anyone. The immediate effects have to be experienced to be believed! Now it just seems to make sense to me that the physical sensation of panic should be lifted by a physical action!
Knowing that she has taught this trick to so many other clients who, like me, have tried so many other routes, means that her authority is huge.
The greatest thing for me was that I could just follow the video at home, without having to make an appointment or tell my story to yet another consultant!
I now feel an incredible sense of freedom from knowing that I can control my panic feelings or anxious thoughts anywhere, and I am working with my GP to get off all the prescription meds.
This system works – you don’t need to take my word for it- and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
