Welcome to The Insight Academy
This is the place to be if you’re struggling to free that self-confident, ‘major league’ super-human within you!
My driving passion is to give you everything you need to be the best ‘You‘, you can be.
No doubt you’ve been told that people are creatures of circumstance and that you have to do the best you can, with the hand you’ve been dealt.
I spent years struggling with social anxiety disorder and low self-esteem, so I had very little confidence in myself, or in my ability to make decisions, especially if those decisions could impact other people.
Sometimes, it felt like there’s no hope of finding a solution. But, I can assure you there are strategies you can learn, to change things. You just have to believe in yourself enough to take a chance.
In a World where there’s already too much to do, spending time trying to overcome your confidence issues is pushed to the back of the ‘must-do’ list.
My goal is to help stem the tide a little bit, by providing the tools and information to help you control your social anxiety gremlins.
This in turn, will bolster your self-esteem, boost your self confidence and lead you back into a fulfilling and ultimately powerful life again.
As with everything, sometimes, the smallest of actions can make the biggest difference, after all, just learning about something doesn’t make it work. Improvements to your life can only happen if you take action!
Communication is always better than lecturing, so I’d love to hear from you if you’re struggling at the moment and you think I may be able to help with a specific problem. Alternatively, I’m always excited to hear about how you’re succeeding in spite of the constant battle with your demons, and I’m always willing to listen if you have a story that you’d like to share, or if you have an insight that can help other people.
If you have a story you’d like to share, you can contact me using the Contact page and we’ll have a chat, all be it by email.
Oooh! before I forget, I would just like to add a quick point regarding comments on this site… Some of the posts include my opinion on things. If your opinion’s different, I encourage you to give yours in the comments.
However, whilst a difference of opinion is welcomed, this is a place of community and safety for those suffering from social anxiety. ‘snarky’ comments, or ‘flaming’ of another commenter isn’t healthy, or necessary.
Please try to make your comments friendly and helpful. No one knows everything and everything is an opinion. I’m always willing to learn and I’m quite happy to be educated by my readers 🙂
If you’re not comfortable commenting yet, I can be contacted directly by emailing steve at insight-academy dot com. I check this email daily.
If there’s anything I can help with, please let me know.
To your successful future,
I’ve formally studied Clinical Psychology, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psycho-analysis, Psychotherapy, NLP, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Child Psychology over the last thirty years. And I gained my Ph.D in 2006.
However, my life wasn’t always that ‘sorted’. Until my late twenties, everything was very different. If you’d like to know why I believe I’m the right person to be helping you, click here to find out more about me.
Currently I spend most of my time writing articles for this site, mentoring, creating Training Courses and when there’s time, writing interactive workbooks on Social Anxiety, Success, Self-esteem and Self-Confidence.
