Numerous studies have linked Negative Self-Talk (NST) to higher cortisol levels, a natural hormone produced by stressful situations. High levels of cortisol are linked to multiple health-related problems. By reducing our NST and increasing Positive Self-Talk, we can lower cortisol levels and reduce our stress.

The Crushing Negative Self Talk course is our first step to discovering the internal language that keeps us locked in a cycle of negative voices that never seem to stop. We learn to identify NSTs, intercept them, and reduce the volume to move towards our best life.

"Crushing NST course facilitators Robert Christiansen and Martin Devon created an environment of warmth, honesty and transparency that opened a new avenue of self-awareness for me. I left the program with a renewed enthusiasm and optimism for exploring and overriding limiting beliefs and messaging that, though subtle, might still undermine my efforts to achieve my professional and personal visions. Excavating those messages has been powerful and reaffirming. I'm grateful to Robert and Martin for their expert and generous coaching."
