Why Is Being Too Nice Bad For You

Why Is Being Too Nice Bad For You
Some people are good-hearted, filled with compassion and kindness. And that’s good. This planet needs more people who care about others and offer helping hand when needed. Being nice to your neighbour, colleague, or anyone you meet in your everyday life can add to your happiness. Though everything has its limits. Some people can be too good and nice to others, doing their best to please everyone, while neglecting their own needs and wishes. Being overly nice to others is linked to self-esteem and many try to cover their lack of belief […]

Never Ending Search For Purpose of Life

Never ending search for purpose of life

When you start asking existential questions it is a sign that you are ready for a journey. There is something missing in your current state of being. The problem is, it is very difficult to define what is actually missing. And we are again in an ‘unknown’ territory. I’ve seen too many clients who became incredibly anxious and developed many crippling fears just because they didn’t know what their purpose was. It can be scary to live your everyday life questioning all your choices, your aim, your direction. And very often people who […]

The Pitfalls Of Being A Workaholic

By |August 29th, 2015|

The Pitfalls Of Being A Workaholic
A workaholic is someone who works compulsively and who may or may not enjoy the work that he or she does. While there isn’t currently a formal, medical definition of what a workaholic is, certain forms of impulse control disorder, stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder may be involved. This is not the same as being hard-working, given that being a workaholic makes it impossible for people to achieve work-life balance, maintain healthy relationships and cultivate positive, outside interests. Being a workaholic can cause you to consciously or unconsciously lose track of […]

Anxiety In Men

Anxiety In Men
Is modern life making men more anxious?
When I started my practice I knew I would focus on anxieties, phobias and fears. I wanted to help change people’s lives by helping them with their negative thinking patterns and find a way for them to live the life they deserve. I though this specialisation in anxieties would lead to most of my clients being women. But the opposite is true. About 80% of my long term clients are men. They are very often successful men in the eyes of society, but because of pressures of their work, relationships, and […]

A Therapeutic Peak into Peaky Blinders
 

Steven Knight really knows how to develop strong characters, hardly ever good or bad, like real human are. We therapists learn what to look for in the speech of a person, in their action. It gives us clear idea about how people operate, what works for them, what are the roots to their problems. Not many writers can put such sophistication into their writing so as to differentiate their characters to an extent where they become unique characters. Writers often depict different versions of themselves, mostly in speech. But Steven Knight writes real people, […]

Halloween: Love of Fear

Halloween: Love of Fear

In my country, we go to a cemetery, light a candle on the grave of a relative, and leave fresh flowers. We Czechs were always rather a melancholic nation! But I have to say, I love Halloween the way it is celebrated in the UK and the USA. There are creative aspects to it like dressing up and carving pumpkins, which I am really looking forward to this year. With all of these celebrations of death and fright going on, I wonder what it is that makes us love being scared.

Self-Hypnosis: How to Hypnotise Yourself

You Can Use Self-Hypnosis Wherever You Are 
When undertaking self-hypnosis I use hypnotherapy recordings or just visualisation if I happen to be in a busy place. Many people do not realise that you do not have to be alone in a silent place to be able to hypnotise yourself. Any time you daydream you are putting yourself into a trance. Daydreaming has incredible potential when it comes to helping us achieve the things we want but we do have to be careful how we use it. You are what you think so always be mindful of what […]

Why Confidence is Important

Self-confidence is an important factor in almost all parts of our lives and presents itself in a number of ways from body language and behaviour to what we say and how we say it. Yet many people find it difficult to find their inner confidence. This can become a vicious circle as a lack of self-confidence can make it harder for people to achieve their goals and when we don’t succeed this can often lower our confidence even more.

Suffering from a lack of confidence can affect our lives at work and at home. For example, when […]
