THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO LEARN ABOUT ANXIETY
My name is Shane Haron and I am known worldwide as “The Anxiety Specialist”.
As you may have guessed, I specialise in helping people overcome anxiety. Whether it’s anxious thoughts, anxious feelings, social anxiety, health anxiety, OCD, GAD, PTSD, panic attacks, phobias or other nervous system issues such as anger issues, disassociation, DPDR etc. You name it, I have helped someone else just like you overcome it.
I've been working in the coaching industry for 16 years. I have always been driven by my passion for helping others and a thirst for knowledge on anything to do with personal development and healing.
My anxiety healing journey started because I was experiencing debilitating panic attacks, seemingly out of nowhere. But before the panic attacks started I was unknowingly addicted to work and steroids. My self worth was attached to financial success and how I looked, yet no matter how much I earned or how good I looked, I was still unhappy on the inside.
One night, after injecting a bodybuilding peptide, I had a severe allergic reaction and had a seizure. I passed out foaming at the mouth, hives all over my body and awoken to paramedics and my girlfriend in hysterics thinking I was going to die. I was rushed to hospital and luckily I was okay. The crazy thing is that this still didn't stop me from abusing my body with steroids and peptides.
Looking back now it's obvious I had some issues, but at the time I was completely oblivious and didn't even recognise the anxiety under the surface as I was so disconnected from my body. No one else would have noticed either as on the surface it looked like I had my shit together. A successful business, a beautiful girlfriend, a competition winning body. Yet none of that matters when you are disconnected from yourself. As they say, happiness is an inside job.
It wasn't until I ended up in A&E thinking I was having a heart attack with a resting heart rate of 130bpm and crippling heavy chest pain that I learned from the doctors I was actually experiencing anxiety and panic attacks.
Doctors only wanted to offer me anti depressants but experiencing my mum numbed out on them as a child, I knew in my heart that it wasn't the answer. I avoided taking action for a long time hoping it would go away but it only got worse the longer I left it.
Eventually it got so bad I had to take action and I went through a number of different therapies as I was willing to try anything including hynotherapy, NLP, reiki, EFT, CBT and counselling which did help to reduce the anxiety symptoms. This lead me to training and qualifying in a number of these therapies and I even changed career and started working with clients of my own but I still felt something was missing.
Even though I had some success working with clients, I found that they would often trigger me or reflect my own unhealed patterns and trauma that I wasn't conscious of before they worked with me.
This made me realise how much more work I needed to do on my own healing journey and that I had barely scratched the surface. This wasn't easy to accept especially as I had just started this new journey as an anxiety coach.
I also recognised the wounded healer pattern within me that felt a need to help and rescue others to prove my worth. I likely learned this pattern from trying to save my parents from their own addictions.
As I continued to research and learn, I discovered the world of trauma, the nervous system and somatic therapies and anxiety finally started to make sense. I went on to train and qualify in every trauma based somatic therapy I could find, learning from the leading trauma experts in the world such as Gabor Matè, David Bercelli and Peter Levine.
As my own healing journey deepened, my success with my clients improved dramatically. I discovered that the key to truly helping others was not just the knowledge or techniques I knew, but the depth of my own healing and my ability to hold space and co-regulate with a safe, resilient nervous system.
As time went on, I started to become known for the amazing results I would produce with my clients. Specialising in anxiety meant that every single client of mine experienced anxiety and I was essential solving the same problem but in different clients. This enabled me to test the best somatic therapies out there and compare their effectiveness.
I created and refined my own framework of healing from testing what worked
Somatic Release Therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on the mind and body connection. It is based on the knowledge that anxiety is a natural response from the body when it has
The goal of Somatic Release Therapy is to help individuals access and release the stuck stress and emotions in the body in a safe and controlled way that doesn't overwhelm the client or retraumatise them.
I started noticing a huge change in myself Learning from every experience, especially the mistakes made and obstacles that arose and continually refining my own method based on the results of hundreds of clients.
This has lead me to create a battle tested, proven method that can produce replicable results, time and time again and I'm sure will continue to evolve over time.
Reconnection to yourself, your body and your feelings. This can only happen when you feel SAFE.
Regulation is being able to calm your nervous system down, feel safe and control any anxiety and emotions.
These are both essential skills that are practiced in The Resilience Club, an online membership.
Releasing built up stress and emotions from past experiences (trauma) and the present.
Rewriting any negative beliefs and stories from the past that you want to let go of.
This is best done with professional guidance working with me 121, where you will also learn my method first hand.
