Affirmations are simple statements designed to change your thinking for the better. I currently have two recordings that include affirmations - one is for quieting stressful thoughts and the other is for overcoming anxiety after treatment for cancer . You can view or sample on my webpage. The affirmations I wrote were the direct outcome of negative statements I heard clients say when we worked together. The question to me was this: were these statement helping them, changing them, or just leaving them feeling helpless?
