    Thank you for this very interesting presentation. Danie is one of my favorite presenters at the Networker. Thank you for all of these creative ideas in rethinking anxiety as a positive tool rather than being something to eliminate.

    While I agree with Danie that anxiety is often a signal of an internal conflict, I think it's important to differentiate between treating someone with anxiety and an anxiety disorder.
    I was also surprised to hear that Danie believes that the main
    reason for adolescent anxiety is guilt.
    I did like the metaphors and visuals to make a point.

    I could hardly stop smiling throughout her presentation. Danie is so engaged and engaging. I don't think I could duplicate her style or method, but she shows how therapy can be very different from traditional modalities and still very effective, and yes, fun! Who knew?

    I was really happy with Danie's presentation and her concept of Anxiety as a "friend" who reminds us of our real self. I would love to have a bit more information of how to deal with anxiety with individuals who had traumatic experiences during childhood and therefore very ingrained fears and concepts of vulnerability.
    Merci Beaucoup!

    Great presentation. I was inspired today with a social anxious client. Shame keeps him out of town, we negotiated how he would be able to get himself to go to town. Having the multi-sensory impact in mind, we role-played possible encounters (got out of my chair). As a required 'asset' my client mentioned 'rebelliousness'. As he used to be a cameraman I wondered if some picture of himself could help him to remind him of his rebelliousness. He didn't hesitate to pick his smartphone from his pocket and ask me to make a picture of him showing his middle finger! He thought the picture captured his mood very well and I had to agree. He'd use this to remind himself if he got weak in the knees and left the room with a grin from ear to ear. It was great fun and I am now thinking to practice covering three sensory modes in one session more often.

    I really enjoyed Danie's presentation. It is very true that we have too much input,distractions and things to do and not enough time to relax in our modern world. Multitasking and trying to be superman/woman is adding to the anxiety. I am expecially interested in getting more information about working with anxiety and teens or young adults. She mentioned that she will be having a new web site July 2012- Do you have this website information and could you post it?

    Wonderful presentation! Practical, meaningful techniques to add to our clinical repertoire. I am going to try the "take a breath, breath in again, breath in again" metaphor tomorrow with an anxious, depressed client who has not been able to manage taking even 10 minutes out of his day to eat lunch and not do work while doing so. I can't wait to see if this helps to help him have a breakthrough on self care. Thank you Dr. Beaulieu and Rich!

    Loved it! One of the most practical interviews I've seen here on the Networker. Some of her perspective reminded me in an interesting way of the work of Nathaniel Branden - a real "biological," in the broadest sense, appreciation for anxiety, rather than seeing it out of context as something wrong in and of itself. More of this kind of holistic thinking in the therapy world please!

    Danie has great ideas and will help me look not just at symptoms and include what is behind those symptoms. Danie is a great presenter.
