You Can Believe This One
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. (Amazon Review)
