This audiobook features a full meditation experience written by Virginia Harton and narrated by Sara Dylan.

Anxiety is a word we use to describe feelings of unease, worry and fear. It incorporates both the emotions and the physical sensations we might experience when we are worried or nervous about something. Although we usually find it unpleasant, anxiety is related to the ‘fight or flight’ response – our normal biological reaction to feeling threatened.

We all know what it’s like to feel anxious from time to time. It’s common to feel tense, nervous and perhaps fearful at the thought of a stressful event or decision you’re facing – especially if it could have a big impact on your life. For example: sitting an exam going into hospital attending an interview starting a new job moving away from home having a baby being diagnosed with an illness deciding to get married or divorced

In situations like these it’s understandable to have worries about how you will perform, or what the outcome will be. For a short time you might even find it hard to sleep, eat or concentrate. This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anxiety through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing.

This audiobook features a full meditation experience written by Virginia Harton and narrated by Sara Dylan.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this

Your anger, if persistent and frequent, can have a devastating effect on your life and those around you. Spouses and other family members can struggle to cope and to them it may feel like walking through a mine field not knowing what is going to “set you off”.

Treatments you may seek for your anger will always start with your Doctor. Always consult your Doctor if your anger is causing problems in your life. Your Doctor will make a diagnosis and prescribe the best solution for you: This may range from medication to face to face counselling.

This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anger through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing.

This short audio learning experience by Dr Denis McBrinn: narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what problem solving is, how to do it effectively and to lead you gently into reflection on the level of effective problem solving currently in your life.

"Focus on finding a solution, rather than just dwelling on the problem"

Good problem solvers put the focus on finding a solution rather than the problem.

Defining a problem clearly and correctly is important - a problem fully stated is half-solved.

But most of us spend 80% of the time on the problem and only 20% on finding a solution.

We tend to be "Problem Focused" rather than "Solution Focused" because it is easier to blame than act.

This audio learning experience includes a guided process for using left and right brain characteristics for problem solving.

"If prayer is you talking to God, then intuition is God talking to you." Wayne Dyer

What is intuition? How does it arise in our lives? How do we develop it? Derived from the Latin word Intueri, it means “to look within".

Intuition is our inner wisdom that develops from awareness of the "unseen and hidden".

Intuition lies within our subconscious. Intuition is like whispered guidance from our soul.

It is our soul's equivalent of "Sat. Nav." or "GPS".

Many great innovations, have been ignited by sparks of intuition.

All of us have the ability to be intuitive; We just need to give it more attention and practice.

SELF TALK by Dr Denis McBrinn: Narrated by Sara Dylan

Welcome to this short audio presentation which is designed to bring a clear definition of what self-talk is, how to achieve effective and positive self-talk, and to give you an opportunity to focus and reflect on the level of effective and positive self-talk currently in your life.

"There's someone in my head, but it's not me." Roger Waters

There is a voice inside everyone's head that is constantly talking.

It never stops: Always chattering away, every minute of our waking hours. This is known as our "Self-Talk" or "Internal Monologue".

No one else ever hears this internal voice but us. We are the sole listeners to our self-talk.

What our self-talk repeatedly says to us and how we respond to it, has a big influence on our life.

If our egos are too dominant, then our self-talk may be critical and demanding. What does your self-talk say to you? Is it generally positive or negative? Is it compassionate or critical? Is it constructive or conflicting? Is it a voice of hope and encouragement? A voice of anxiety and fear?

"Mens sana in corpore sano - A sound mind in a healthy body" Juvenal

The practice of mindfulness helps to reduce stress and anxiety and contributes to our mental wellbeing. Mindfulness helps us to take notice of what is happening in the present moment.

By being more engaged with the present, we improve our focus on what really matters.

This improves understanding of our values, priorities and motivations.

We live in a constant stream of commentary running through our heads. But when we take notice and observe our mind, we are less likely to be controlled by negative thoughts.

It is related to the type of person we think we are; our values; skills and abilities.

Dr Denis McBrinn From the bestselling audiobook: Go for it! Be Confident by Dr Denis McBrinn.This Audio will address the three People Smart areas of: Building Self Confidence, Being Confident with Others, and Confident Social Skills.

The starting point for building confidence is yourself. We know that confidence comes from within – it is not outside us and it is all to do with trust. The most important relationship in our lives is the one we develop with ourselves. How well do you know and trust yourself? How good a friend are you to yourself?

Others will treat you according to the way you see yourself. If you believe, deep down, you are a capable, worthwhile person and know that you deserve to be treated well, then that is the way others will treat you. On the other hand, if you don’t value yourself, then no one else will. If you are always putting yourself down, people will treat you as a door mat and walk all over you. Developing people skills is a pre-requisite to building confidence with others.

Social gatherings like weddings, funerals, christenings and parties can be uncomfortable and stressful situations, especially when we feel we are lacking in confidence. Social skills are arguably the most important set of abilities we can develop and practice to help build self- confidence. Having confident social skills will help you to meet interesting people, get that job you want, progress further in your career and establish good relationships.

This Audio will address the three People Smart areas of: Building Self Confidence, Being Confident with Others, and Confident Social Skills.

There is no shortage of challenges in life! Life is a journey through loss with many obstacles along the way. We will experience the loss of loved ones through bereavement: The loss of good health through illness, accidents or old age.

And major life events such as: getting married, giving birth, divorce, redundancy and retirement are all challenging times that can cause stress and anxiety.

When something difficult and challenging happens to us, we have three choices. We can either allow the situation to define us for the rest of our lives. Let it destroy us. Or use it to strengthen us and to make us better, rather than bitter.

This audio learning experience will give you the opportunity to make the decision to become stronger, more assertive, and better, not bitter.

This audiobook will equip you with proven techniques to successfully communicate with angry people and protect yourself from violence

Have you ever been angry? I’m sure you have. How did it feel? What caused it? Did you lash out physically at furniture or people or just fume quietly?

Have you ever experienced an angry customer, or patient, or family member and been at a loss as to how to calm things down? Upon reflection have you maybe sometimes escalated the anger in the other person by arguing or speaking over or interrupting their angry rant?

Have you ever seen someone reach a point where they do kick furniture about or even raise a hand to strike you?

This audiobook is designed to give you an understanding of what anger is and when encountered in someone else what to do and what not to do to calm things down and reach a more rational way forward.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this

In this audiobook we will be focusing mostly on type 2 where the anger is settled and deliberate, possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment. Of course you may encounter all three types.

Some examples of the type 2 kind of anger might include a customer, who is complaining about the standard of the product they have purchased, or the householder who is angry at the engineer who is trying to get their electricity supply back on, or their heating repaired on a cold winter’s day.

Whether they are right or wrong, their perception is that you or your organisation is to blame and they will vent their anger and hopefully not their violence, on you.

You might work in a shop, or a bank, or you might be a social worker visiting your clients at their homes? You might be a nurse or Doctor dealing with unruly patients in Emergency on a Saturday night, or a police officer for whom the angry person is a frequent occurrence. Whatever your role in life you are going to encounter an angry person at some point. Be prepared.

Tips on being Assertive by Dr Denis McBrinn, narrated by Sara Dylan. This audiobook will bring to you a clear and comprehensive list of useful tips to help you become more assertive

The communication skill of being assertive, is about striking the right balance between our needs and the needs of others.

If we are always centred on satisfying our own needs, at the expense of others, we will be perceived as being selfish and aggressive.

On the other hand, if we are always putting the needs of others first and neglecting our own essential needs, we risk being taken for granted and our self-esteem will suffer.

Assertiveness is about finding the right response to situations, that is neither aggressive nor passive. It is an important communication tool, that can be learned and developed, with practice.
