Curing Anxiety Disorders and Depression
... A New Answer

Anxiety is part of being human, we all have it. And to get anxious in certain situations is normal, everyone does. Most people even experience increased anxiety frequently. Things like tests, interviews, public speaking, first dates and competitive sports can make anyone pretty anxious.

But for some of us things change. Our anxiety grows stronger and we start to get anxious more often. It comes on when we don't need it or comes on much too strong when we only need it a little.

Many people stay like this ... living with over-sensitive anxiety and getting too anxious frequently. Most develop physical symptoms due to the anxiety.

For others, increased anxiety, if left unresolved, can lead to more serious problems and disorders involving such things as uncontrollable worrying, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours, irrational fears and phobias, even severe depression.

And there has been no real answer for this.

Nothing that truly explains why this happens and how to deal with it.

Now, based on the lifetime's work and findings of some of the most brilliant doctors and scientists that ever lived, the efforts of numerous psychologists and therapists, and the experiences of countless sufferers themselves - a new answer has emerged.

One that offers a real cure.

A totally new way to understand these problems, it shows how to stop them completely and permanently without the need for therapy or medication ... by dealing with the underlying cause.


Let's look at why these problems seem so difficult to deal with today and how it's possible to become truly free...

Today, many people are struggling with anxiety disorders or depression

Some search constantly for reasons and answers.

Others try therapy or medication; diets and supplements; help from others and self-help, only to feel no better than when they first started, or in some cases, even worse.

Many purchase methods or programs claiming to be the answer, only to be let down again.

Nothing seems to work.

One thing is for sure: most of today's treatments aren't working.

Current beliefs about mental illness, genetics, chemical imbalances, or physical brain problems as being the cause of these problems are wrong. And treatments based on these beliefs are failing millions of people looking for a cure.

For they miss the real cause of these problems and never deal with it at all.

They leave us struggling with symptoms, fighting in the dark, trying to deal with something when we don't even know what it is.

It's like trying to fend off an attacker, blindfolded – not knowing when he will strike, where he will strike and with what.

It is an impossible situation.

We simply cannot fight the unknown.

For whatever we may try, as soon as any symptoms occur, we think that it isn't working, that it cannot be the answer, and so we continue the never-ending search for the 'real answer'.

Take, for example, Relaxation:
Nervousness and anxiety are profoundly helped by relaxation, and learning to be calm. There is no doubt about this. A relaxed body (and mind) cannot be tense and nervous for they are physiological opposites. Relaxation really is calming: it is impossible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time.

But many of us just cannot do this, relaxation will not relax us. For at the back of our mind lies the 'not knowing', those 'what is wrong with me'  fears that defeat all the efforts we make.

And it's not just relaxation, it is everything we try: medication and therapies, foods and supplements, self-help programs and techniques ...

Without knowing what is really happening to us the fear of the unknown makes these problems simply too powerful to overcome.

IN FACT, given the nature of anxiety problems, we also have to know why the cure works for it to work.

We may struggle, often for years ... medications and therapies promising that they will take away our problem and cure us, but they never do.

Before we can truly cure these problems, before we can say goodbye to them forever we need to know what's causing it.

We have to know what is happening to us and why ... this is the key.







The key to real freedom.

Knowing this makes it possible to:-

blue button  Completely stop anxious thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
blue button  Cure what's actually causing the problem.
blue button  Create a new, more positive way of living free from insecurity and fear.

No medication, secret cures or magic tricks necessary

... only insight into what's causing the problem and how to stop it.

Once we realise the truth about these problems, it is possible to stop them completely and permanently. And to do it naturally, without therapy or drugs.






A New Answer

Unfortunately, most of today's theories about what causes anxiety disorders and depression are inaccurate, misleading and overlook the bigger picture – they simply don't reflect what really happens to us.

Indeed, there is a vast amount of research that actually proves the current ideas and theories about genetics, chemical imbalances etc. are wrong:

Take, for example, the Nobel Prize-winning research on genetics by Barbara McClintock. Here, she showed that, far from being fixed, DNA can actually change due to experience. Genes can change, they are our past not our future. ... We need not be slaves to our genes!

As you know, we don't simply wake up one day with these problems. They start off slowly and get stronger and stronger over time.

Few of us, if any, had an anxiety disorder or depression as a child. It's usually just the opposite. Yet something happens that turns the confidence we had as children into anxiety.

Something happens to us that takes away our confidence and fills us with insecurity. So much insecurity that anxiety (our self-protection system) kicks in.

And it isn't a defective gene, or an imbalance of chemicals (the neurotransmitters: Serotonin and Dopamine are usually the ones blamed) or that our brains are somehow different from 'normal' people's.

... It's a whole series of experiences, learning, feelings, thoughts and behaviours that set the ball rolling towards insecurity and anxiety-related problems.

Far from being a mystery, the development of these problems follows a logical psychological process and we can map out what happens every step of the way.

At their heart lies neither illness nor disease and not even disorder for these problems aren't irrational, they develop for a good reason ... for our survival.

They come from our inner-self trying to protect us.

And once we understand why this happens we can stop it completely.

Imagine the world of difference this insight will bring.
... No longer fighting blindfolded, trying to deal with the unknown.

Knowing exactly why you think and behave as you do.
... And how to use this knowledge to cure your problem completely.

Not just hoping for some 'miracle cure' or the latest 'wonder drug' to take the problem away but having real power over anxiety and real control.






Evolving Self Confidence represents a breakthrough in understanding and curing anxiety disorders and severe depression.

Truly unique – it reveals, for the first time, how negative life experiences and the way they make us think and feel, can combine with deep-down survival instincts to cause excessive and intangible anxiety. And how, from this, a myriad of problems and disorders (including depression) can develop.

Far from being mental or physical (brain) illness, caused by genetics or chemical imbalances in the brain, you'll discover just what these problems really are and how to use this knowledge to stop them completely.

And you won't have to fight any symptoms at all. (A struggle that actually makes the real problem worse since it never touches the underlying cause, and as the symptoms continue the feelings of insecurity and anxiety simply increase.)

For when you remove the cause the symptoms disappear.

This is the difference between curing and merely coping.

Inside, you will discover:-

blue button  How stress, conflict, guilt, anger, shame and the voice in our head that tells us "you can't" and "you are not good enough" interact to make us feel insecure.

blue button  How these feelings of insecurity strengthen to become something more, taking on a very different form that sensitizes us to danger.

blue button  How this increased sensitivity to threat and danger causes a greater anxiety to 'kick-in' and become 'ever-present' in order to protect us.

blue button  The way constant anxiety can build up and up to form severe anxiety disorders and chronic depression.

blue button  How to use this knowledge to stop even the strongest anxiety or depression problem.

And this is not just speculation or guesswork.

These ideas are supported by some of the most important research ever carried out in the fields of Medicine, Psychiatry and Psychology. From the classic experiments on conditioning by Pavlov and the development of fears by Mineka through to the research on anxiety disorders today by Barlow – a new understanding emerges.

... One that offers a real cure.

Incorporating unique insight and some of the most successful elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, this is no superficial method to relieve mild anxiety, but a tried and tested solution for long-standing, deep-rooted anxiety problems.

... For it deals with the actual cause of the problem.


Freedom From Anxiety Disorders 
and Depression



So powerful is the information in this book that many therapists recommend it to their clients.

quotemarkstart  As a practitioner I have recommended this book to many of my clients - it is both well written, accessible, very well researched and informative - no jargon, easy to read, and helpful. I am so glad to have discovered this very helpful book. I recommend it to anyone who wants to overcome anxieties and increase their self confidence. quotemarkend   ...Mrs. A Boden  Hypnotherapist

Some even recommend that the book be used for the on-going training of accredited therapists as part of their continued personal development (CPD).

(CPD is a continuous development program that professional therapists and counsellors use, in order to stay updated about new advances in understanding and treatments so they can help people more successfully.)

  I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and want to support the messages within this book. Mr Dixon clearly 'knows his stuff', and it is refreshing to see that he tackles the issues of anxiety, phobias, OCD and depression in such a thorough and empathetic way. This really is a 'must read' book for those who find themselves suffering, and also for counsellors continued personal development (CPD). I for one have put this book onto my preferred booklist for clients to read. I believe this useful publication will find it's rightful place among the important books in these matters. quotemarkend   ...R. Sealy  Dip.Couns

Knowing the cause of your problem really does change things.

A great weight lifts from your shoulders when you realise that you are not dealing with some strange powerful problem that has no answer or cure.

But this is only the beginning...

Anxiety problems become so powerful because we cannot control them.

The trembling, sweating and dizziness, the worrying thoughts and fears – all appear driven from somewhere deep within. They are hard to understand and even harder to control.

Now, in 'Evolving Self Confidence', you will learn exactly what is happening to you and why.

All the symptoms, thoughts, feelings and behaviours are explained in such detail that the mystery is removed.

Here's just a glimpse into some of the insight you'll gain:-

blue button Thousands of people with racing hearts visit hospital emergency departments each year fearing a heart attack, only to be told that it's due to an anxiety or panic attack.

Why does our heart speed up so?

... Anxiety and panic prepare us to deal with danger, either to fight or run away (the 'fight-or-flight' response). The heart beats faster to pump oxygen (fuel) more quickly to the major muscle groups (arms, legs, chest) to provide them with an energy boost for fighting or fleeing. The greater the danger, the quicker we need energy to take action so the faster the heart pumps.

This is also why our breathing becomes shallow and fast, to take oxygen in more quickly.

Other physical symptoms such as: feeling shaky and on-edge, trembling, nausea, sweating, dizziness etc. can also be explained in relation to the fight-or-flight response.

blue button You may be surprised at the number of psychological symptoms associated with anxiety problems. These range from small indicators of insecurity such as: dressing down, failure to maintain eye contact and constantly comparing ourselves to others, through to more severe behaviours, including: avoidance, perfectionism, hypochondria and sexual problems.

However, you'll be even more surprised to discover that one thing drives all of these symptoms.

blue button One of the greatest experiments ever performed in Psychology shows us the real reason that anxiety problems get worse over time. Not because they are such powerful problems that they need better treatment or a stronger drug but simply due to the normal way our mind deals with unresolved anxiety.
... Understanding this process alone can stop your problem getting worse.

blue button Learn how anxiety problems change and become more severe. How different disorders develop. Why someone gets GAD and another person OCD, or someone develops panic disorder instead of social phobia. Discover the relationship that exists between all anxiety problems and disorders (incl. depression) and what leads to a particular one.

blue button There is a good reason why anxiety problems become part of us, an integral part of the way we think and act. Research from the prestigious University College London confirms how this happens and can reassure you that these problems don't mean there is something physically wrong with your brain.

blue button Everyone gets depressed at times. Discover those feelings that make the difference between the normal depression most people experience and the unremitting hopelessness and helplessness that characterize the chronic form.

blue button Society, the media and religion – all of these things can make anxiety problems worse – but there are things we do ourselves, when trying to cope with these problems, that actually make them stronger. When you stop doing these things your problem will start to fade.

blue button Why doesn't medication work?
Pills work on a physical level, anxiety problems are psychological and the cure is psychological. Although they have their use for symptom relief, discover why prescription drugs can never be a cure and how long-term medication only makes the underlying cause of anxiety problems worse.

blue button Go to any Doctor, Psychiatrist or Psychologist and ask them what causes the swirling, uncontrollable thoughts associated with excessive worry and obsessions. Chances are they cannot tell you. But there is research with insomniacs (people unable to sleep because of uncontrollable thoughts) that gives us the answer.

blue button Why do people with addictions and compulsions have to do things again and again and again, even though it may be hurting them? There is no answer in any current literature ... but you'll find it in 'Evolving Self Confidence'.


Much of the information in this book has never been put down on paper before and reveals answers that many people search a lifetime for and never find.





Written in a relaxed, easy to understand manner, it will give you a whole new outlook on your problem, your life and what the future holds.

quotemarkstart  A really well written book without all the neurological jargon to confuse things. I would highly recommend it. quotemarkend   ...K. M. Kelly

As you read, You'll start to feel more positive about things.

Control shifts from anxiety to you.

quotemarkstart  I don't write a lot of reviews, but I felt compelled to say that this book has had quite a profound effect on me. I have read a number of similar books, but this one has really hit home the control that we could actually have over anxiety and depression if we only understood them (and why they affect us) better. Suffice to say I highly recommend it - please don't suffer any longer, and read this book!  Good luck on your journey. quotemarkend   ....Mr. I. Watson

And you'll receive even more.

Something that's priceless.





Something you can use time and time again to understand other people better.

You will gain a unique insight into the human condition.

... To know why other people think and behave as they do.

... And understand why they criticize, or why they get so angry.

(It can be comforting to know when someone is angry with us or critical of us for no good reason that it's usually themselves they are angry with / critical of)

It is an age-old truth, played out generation after generation in theatres and cinemas across the world, one covered by the music and songs of many different cultures ... the weakest people hurt us the most.

But never again will the weakness of others hurt you.

For now you'll deal with people from a position of wisdom and strength.






The first part of this book alone has dramatically improved the lives of many people struggling with anxiety-related problems.

We receive emails from people, not only thanking us for the book, but also expressing amazement that it helped them profoundly, even before they finished reading it!

quotemarkstart  I've just started reading Evolving Self Confidence and I am blown away by it. You describe my circumstances and experiences (childhood etc) EXACTLY, and at last -there's hope for me! Somebody understands! It all made perfect sense as I read it, and suddenly the panic attacks, anxiety and agoraphobia that have plagued me for the last 11 years didn't seem so 'mad' after all. Under the circumstances, it all seemed perfectly understandable. I haven't finished the book yet: I just wanted you to know that I'm finding it to be an amazing help already. I'm a trained counsellor, philosopher, writer and college lecturer - and all that helped me not one bit (in fact, may have hindered me A LOT!) But your book has so far been a God send, so thank you, thank you for writing it. quotemarkend   ...Regards, Julie.

Knowing what is happening and why is truly liberating.

... The blindfold is removed.

... And fear of the unknown vanishes.

Now we can use this insight to get rid of anxiety problems for good.

In the final part of the book, you'll discover how to stop your problem completely.

Using natural mind and body processes that reverse the effects of long-term anxiety and remove the feelings of insecurity, you are guided through simple, effective techniques to:-

1) Stop anxious thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
(No matter how long you've had them).
Discover how to stop fighting the anxiety and 'let go' – the only true way to weaken those anxiety connections in your brain that keep the problem so strong.

2) Turn fear into confidence.
Learn how to do it naturally, as nature intended – the way children do it.

3) Develop strong positive feelings.
Understand lifestyle changes that can induce strong positive feelings deep inside. Performed with the right knowledge, these can relieve anxiety problems better than any medication.

Take, for example, Exercise:
Recent research has shown that exercise can provide relief from depression better than SSRI's (medication). But many people try exercise without success; they try to force it to work and feel more hopeless when it doesn't.

Here's where a little bit of extra knowledge makes all the difference...

Once we understand depression and how we come to feel that everything we do is hopeless and doomed to fail, so much so that we no longer try. And how because of this our body stops producing energy so that we get into a cycle of not doing things and having no energy to even try, we can see how exercise can help. (Not cure, but help).

With exercise, we are doing something. At the level of our inner-self we are taking action and our body will now start to provide us with more energy naturally.

Therefore, just performing exercise can actually help depression better than drugs. Experts have proved it in case after case. (Always seek professional guidance before starting any exercise regime).

It also works with anxiety, for again (at the level of the inner-self ) we are actually taking a form of action rather than doing nothing or just worrying about things. Exercise also provides a release for some of the nervous energy in anxiety.

SO... just exercise, don't connect it to your problems at all and you will begin to feel more positive and have more energy.

There are other things, described in the book, that multiply these effects. Again, they work best when you don't connect them to your problem at all.

4) Feel really good about yourself.
With the right knowledge and performed in the correct way, these actions will instil deep feelings of goodness within you and start to dissolve insecurity.

There are a number of methods described in the book. One of the most powerful group of techniques is described by the acronym HAPPY.

Here, 'H' stands for helping others. When you truly help other people, without expecting anything in return, it cannot fail to make you feel really good about yourself deep inside.

Once again, there are so many natural things you can do (simple things that don't even require you to think about your problem) that can transform how you feel about yourself and start to replace those inner anxieties with confidence.

quotemarkstart  Based on my personal experiences this unique book's explanation of the cause and cure for anxiety, OCD, and depression is innovative and correct. I am successfully recovering from a forty year long midlevel depression and anxiety disorder and "Evolving Self-Confidence" is guiding my way. This book helped me in a manner more effective, more understandable, more relatable, more articulate, and more precise than any of my experiences with other self-help books, psychiatrists, psychologists, university professors, advising loved ones and friends, presentations and workshops, medications and nutritional supplements, or any other source of treatment. If those suffering from depression, anxiety, and other emotional issues take their condition seriously and they embrace the theories and treatment outlined in "Evolving Self-Confidence" this book will greatly improve their lives. quotemarkend   ...Greg

There are some very good books on anxiety, books that can ease some of the pain, but none of them, not one, gives us the real answer... until now.

No other book available offers the insight you'll find in
Evolving Self Confidence.

No other book explains the cause and cure quite like it.

It holds the key to curing even long-term problems and has helped thousands of people, often where other treatments have failed.


Once you own the knowledge in this book and start using the techniques...

Feelings of insecurity will begin to fade:
You'll find yourself 'forgetting' to be anxious and catch yourself not being scared in situations that would have previously caused alarm.

Anxiety won't hold you back:
You'll control it rather than it controlling you.

Your self-confidence will grow:
Real confidence. Not brash, overt confidence, conceit, arrogance or self-grandiosity; these are merely masks that hide the truth. But a deep inner confidence: accepting and being confident in who you are, secure in the knowledge that you are basically a good and worthwhile human being.

And as you begin to feel more positive about yourself, others will treat you with greater respect.





... You'll become more relaxed and sociable.

... Your relationships will improve.

In fact, virtually every aspect of your life will improve when you approach things with renewed confidence rather than fear.

quotemarkstart  This is the best book in the whole world for anybody with anxiety, depression, phobias. You only need one book and it's this one. I have suffered from anxiety for 15 years. I have been halfway round the world for someone to help me, but to no avail. Then I come across this book. I feel like I have been blessed to find it. I read the book once and felt so happy to be alive, I finally know what's wrong with me and not only that I know to correct it, on my own, without therapy, without drugs. To feel well again, that's the best thing in the world. I would recommend this book to anyone. Don't waste your money on anything else, you only need one book and it's this one. This book tells you what's wrong with you and also how to correct it. Very simple to read, once you start reading you cannot put the book down. Everything makes sense at long last. quotemarkend   ...Isabella

There are no replays in life.

Don't spend any more time suffering or searching.





Try 'Evolving Self Confidence' for yourself ... put it to the test.

quotemarkstart  I've studied various psychological fields extensively. I've also suffered from a number of the anxiety-related problems covered in the book. I have to say that it is well written and researched and is easy to read. Here's the clincher: The advice works. Highly recommended. quotemarkend   ...K. Mckeigue

It has helped many, many people when all else failed.

quotemarkstart  I have found Terry Dixon's book `Evolving Self Confidence' a real delight and beautifully pitched. I have suffered anxiety, depression and confidence issues for most of my life and have sought many different resolutions to no avail. I felt myself to be once again going down in my mental state and just through a search engine found this book on Amazon. I ordered it and with shredded nerves started to read it when it arrived. It wasn't brash or bold. It was like being held and being loved. I had an understanding of psychological issues and the physiology and functions of the brain from university. The things I read made sense and were practical but this time they were presented in such a way that it wasn't information anymore. It had become the soothing words of someone that cared; the words were instilled in my mind and my mind believed. This book can make you believe in yourself again. I have always been sceptical and things have very rarely worked for me. I had hypnotherapy that required me to tell myself parrot fashion that I was strong and would be fine to no avail. This book makes YOU believe in you, not another. I guess that why it works and why it feels real, because it is real and the answer is you. You just need to work at it with its help - you'll find no better help; Thank you Terry. quotemarkend   ...C. Mills
