This manual contains the content of the popular seminar “Treating Intrusive Thoughts and the Inner Critical Voice” by Wale Oladipo. 

It provides the tools on how to identify and deal with anxiety-related disorders at the root level as well as how to combat the perpetuating intrusive thoughts and inner critical voices which sustain them.

This book will help you :

  • Understand the four main categories of intrusive thoughts
  • Understand the eight inner critics
  • Understand the biochemistry of anxiety
  • Understand the building blocks of anxiety disorders
  • Understand the neuro-idealisation technique to rewire the brain
  • Learn how to use the FEAR Model for long-lasting transformation
  • Benefit from the live relaxation experiences of others as well as the live feedback to their questions

My Note to You

Sharing this course with thousands of people over the years has been a tremendous pleasure for me. It has helped me grow. I hope it will help you grow too, to some extent? This is just the beginning and not the end. Any subject about anxiety-related disorders and transformation of the human mind is never easy. It is complex and multi-faceted. Hopefully, you will find this material useful in some capacity.

Consistent action is the bridge that links us to the transformation that we desire. It is what you do after you close this manual that counts. It is your daily habit from now on that will determine the quality of the transformation that you enjoy. Persistence is key. Please do not quit. If you’re a helper, please encourage others that you are helping not to quit. It is those who never quit that eventually win. Transformation is possible.

Best Regards,

Wale Oladipo
