I struggled with performance anxiety for quite some time, mainly public speaking. Finally, it started getting worse to the point where even a conversation was beginning to feel like a performance at work, and there was only so much medication I could take.
I had recently been given a promotion and was about to be a Dad, and my stress levels were very high. I reached out to Martin confidentially, who gave me a comprehensive description of his services and truly believed his programme would help me, so I decided to take the plunge and give it a shot.
His 8-week programme has helped me maintain a reasonably normal response to stressful situations through the various breathing and meditation techniques and be more aware of myself and be present, which has ultimately improved my confidence with public speaking. Every time I start to get nervous, I can recognise it and immediately regulate my breathing. This has only come through practice and putting in the work which Martin guided me through.
In addition, my sleep and focus have improved, and I have automatically stopped snoring or breathing heavily, which my partner has greatly appreciated.
What was great about the programme was that Martin gave me a lot of breathing exercises to practice soon after my gym sessions, so it was easy to fit in and felt part of my training. As a result, I now go to the gym with the mindset of training my muscles and my nervous system.
I recommend this programme to anyone suffering from any type of anxiety. Give it a shot before you think about seeing a psychologist, as it will also save you a lot of money and give you tools you can use for the rest of your life.
