Calm and Confident is designed to stimulate relaxation and confidence, naturally. The tape achieves this by evoking pleasant thoughts and memories, and then adding in bilateral stimulation. The aim is to allow whatever positive thoughts and feelings are occurring to move from your conscious mind to your unconscious mind, from the left hemisphere of
your brain to the right hemisphere.
These unique self-help tapes incorporate the latest findings regarding the treatment of anxiety and pain. In addition to positive suggestions and relaxation, the tapes teach the listener how to be more in touch with their feelings, how to access their own inner emotional resources and how to allow transformation of negative emotional states.
The recordings are based on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) and incorporate bilateral stimulation and dual focus of attention. Bilateral stimulation and dual focus of attention have been shown to facilitate rapid reduction of negative affective states. On the tapes, the unique combination of soothing words and music and bilateral stimulation is designed to produce relaxation almost in spite of any resistance. Users also not only feel relaxed after listening to the tape, but with repetitive listenings they learn how to release emotional blockages to relaxation and to experience less anxiety and greater emotional integration.
The recordings can be used as a 'stand-alone' product or as an invaluable aid to treatment. When used in conjunction with treatment, the tapes serve to both facilitate and reinforce the therapeutic process, sometimes in quite dramatic and unforeseen ways. Many therapists also use them on themselves
These tapes have helped thousands of people, with all kinds of conditions, all over the world.

"My client was particularly fearful about having to go to court and be cross-examined. After playing the tape several times, he felt ready and eager to face cross examination. He was truly surprised at the recordings' effect and told me - THE TAPE DOES WORK. "

Mark has also made presentations about pain in Australia and North and South America.
