The Calm, Confident Brain

The short online programme for anxiety.  

Over years of working in trauma and somatic therapy, one-to-one with thousands of clients from all walks of life, and from all over the world, (as well as overcoming my own anxiety), one thing has become crystal clear:  It's the unconscious brain which regulates our levels of calm and confidence, WHATEVER the circumstances.  And you can discover how to change your unconscious brain without years of expensive one-to-one therapy.  This is my first area of expertise, the totally practical, neuroscience-based and somatics approach to calm and confidence.

With this programme you will be able to

  • Deal with overwhelm, panic, and emotional storms.
  • Calm your unconscious brain activation, so you can feel calm and in charge.  
  • Soothe, regulate and even repair the unconscious brain's fight,  flight and freeze
  • Feel good in your own skin
  • Build confidence and switch on clarity so you can think and feel clearly, and make better decisions.

Helping you discover purpose and motivation for life

I'm Anne Cheshire, SEP, MNIMH, here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.  My passion in life is to help people find their purpose and motivation, and overcome anxiety and doubt, so they can decide what they want to do with their lives, make great decisions, and carry them out with deep confidence.  

I'm a mum, a linguist, I've owned exercise studios (I still teach barre!), and I've been a secondary school teacher.  I have also suffered from deep, irrational anxiety myself, and I know what it feels like to be able to let go of that.  I have been a trauma therapist for fifteen years, and I've worked with thousands of clients and patients in one-to-one therapy, seeing them find calm and confidence, discover purpose, make great decisions, and empower their lives. 

What I have found is that it is not just about knowing rationally what to do, but about enabling the unconscious brain to support us in that.  And you do not have to do one-to-one therapy for that!

Rooted in in-depth training and clinical experience in my field of expertise (trauma therapy, Somatic Experiencing®,  and neuroscience-based therapy) my system helps anyone with an unconscious part of the brain (that's you!) gain calm, confidence, purpose and motivation, so they can make great life decisions and be empowered to carry them out.  I've been on that journey myself, and I'm here to be with you on your's. 

Join me in my short programme Calm, Confident Brain, or let me accompany you in the deep dive, the Making Great Life Decisions programme, which is fully supported with group Q&A or coaching, and one-to-one sessions included for you.
