A Tip for Handling Anxiety
by Terry J. Hodgkinson

Working with a client today, she kept commenting on how her anxiety was beating her up, knocking her over and keeping her from reaching her goal. So I took her to the Chung Fu Martial Arts Training and Meditation School room and taught her a Tai Chi grounded stance. I then asked her to imagine that she had roots, like the roots of a tree that went 5 times deeper and wider into the ground than she was tall.
Then I asked her if she would imagine wind impacting a strongly grounded tree, like a bamboo tree. It will sway in the wind moving sometimes back and forth as well as maybe side to side but it always finds and comes back to its centre. She said yes, she could see that.

I took up the stance and had her push me on different angles and my body remaining supple and swayed with the force and yet kept returning back to centre. No matter how much force she pushed with, my body would go with it and then return. Then I had her take up the stance and I pushed her while reminding her to continue visualizing how strong her grounding was, deep into the ground, yet how supple she was to flow with the force and return. I pushed her from different angles and she would move around and then return, not losing her balance or her centre.

Then I changed the wording to help her re-frame her personal experience with anxiety. I said, "Now instead of wind imagine that this is anxiety pushing you around; keep visualizing how deep your roots go and simply flow with it, always returning to centre. Just like the wind, the anxiety does not knock you down: you simply sway back to your centre and continue on with your journey."

Her eyes lit up, new neural pathways had been created. Now if she practices what she learned today those newly established neural pathways will grow stronger everyday and so will she!

I love when I can mix my martial arts, NLP and Coaching experience altogether to assist my clients in perceiving and thus experiencing a new reality, one that works better for them.

Read what a few of Terry Hodgkinson's clients have said about him.

My name is Luba Racicot. I live in Toronto. I came to see Terry Hodgkinson to get help with my anxiety. I did not feel I was very well grounded at the time. I feel a lot camber now. I feel that I have more time to listen to people and I’m not as agitated. I was quite surprised to hear my daughter saying, “Mom, I have notice that you are much calmer than you used to be.” So I guess that I’m handling things better. I believe my change are permanent, and I ;m going to ensure that they will be by listening to my tapes. I have come up with ideas like decorating my house and getting rid of the clutter. I guess before I was too busy thinking of my troubles and my worries.

The most important benefit that I gained from coming to see Terry is that I have become more certain of myself.

My name is Carmelle Riendeau and I live in Mississauga. I met Terry Hodgkinson when he came to my fitness club in 1997 to do a workshop on self-defence I enjoyed the workshop, and was impressed with Terry’s personality. At the time, I was a volunteer with a woman’s shelter and approached Terry to do a similar workshop and raise funds for the shelter. We worked together in organizing a fundraiser, which was done at his martial arts studio. I was so impressed by his teaching, his confidence, and motivational style that I decided to take martial arts training with him. Later on, he started his Positive Changes Hypnosis and Coaching Centre.

In 2001, I found a lump, went for a biopsy and had to wait 5 days for the results. I contacted Terry and asked what I could do to stay positive while waiting for the results. He designed a positive thinking recording for me – healthy mind and body. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and used his recordings to keep me on the positive thinking track. I would listen to the recording while undergoing chemo treatments and remember one time where Terry’s words of positive thoughts “filtering” into my body and “washing” away negativity, was in sync with the chemo treatment coming through my arm – it certainly gave me an added tingling (chemo in, cancer out). That night I experienced a third eye “vision” which could have meant I was in tune with my body. I have been cancer free for many years now!

Whether it was throughout my martial arts training, or the coaching sessions, I found Terry to be a great mentor, an awesome motivational speaker, and simply a most caring individual.

Having been previously diagnosed with both depression and anxiety disorders, summarily prescribed every type of ‘medication’ you can imagine, Terry encouraging me to discover ‘new’ solutions, based on ancient practices for developing a successful management strategy. I now have internal resources to draw on, and it has made all the difference. By combining the best science and technology available with techniques rooted in ancient wisdom, I am enjoying the benefits of lasting change, without the need for drug ‘Therapy”. His audio-visual tools, which I still use regularly, and his excellent book, Memoirs of a Wandering Ninja, have become the primary tools that have enabled me to re-think my own limitations and face my challenges with the confidence that I can choose my outcome.

Thanks T, You are a life-changer!

My name is Roger Galea. I live in Etobicoke and I’m a driver. My goal for coming to see Terry Hodgkinson was to get rid of my stress and anxiety and just to be a better person in the long run.

I heard about Terry Hodgkinson's office through my boss.

I started noticing changes right after the consultation. Right away I felt in the comfort zone, it’s like a safe place for me – I felt very comfortable. The first session was fantastic. Other people started noticing changes about a week or two into my program. They were saying that I was reaching my goal with NLP & Hypnosis, so as long as it’s helping me, to go ahead and do it.

I tried getting rid of my stress and anxiety in the past, by going to the doctors and taking prescribed medication. It didn’t work…it just made me feel a lot worse. After NLP & Hypnosis I felt like myself again without any medication. I believe that this is a permanent change. I also noticed that I’m a lot more cheerful now. I’ve gone back to work and all the workers noticed the big difference – they can’t believe that I was that sick. The most important benefit that I got from Terry was that he helped to make me a better person in the long run. I don’t get mood swings like I used to when I had stress and I take things a little easier now.

When I met Terry Hodgkinson in the mid 90’s, I knew there was something special about him. At first I couldn’t put my finger on it. I had met talented therapists before, but with Terry there was something more. As we became close business associates and friends, I realized what it was; Terry is authentic. In the world of self-help, there seems to be a new guru or an acclaimed breakthrough every week, but most of these fall short in substance and method. In Terry I found the real deal. He had walked the walk. Terry did his time to earn his illumination.

I have been receiving coaching and hypnotherapy from Terry for a while now, every week. In my time with Terry, I have come to know him as an intensely intelligent and self aware individual. Always thought I had this great perception being a coach and a leader but Terry helps me to even see further, which I honestly thought impossible. Working with Terry just reiterates HOW important and valuable having a personal coach is! I’ve talked about everything from physical fitness, relationships, business, sex and past pains with Terry, KNOWING it’s safe! When I bring these things to Terry in our sessions, I know I always leave as a better coach myself, a better tool for my own clients.

Since I started working with Terry, my intuitive capability has been better tuned when working with clients and team members in my business. I would highly recommend Terry; he’s an amazing individual who is very humble and such a pleasure to work with.
