I'm on a mission to end health anxiety.

Hi, I’m Christian, and I beat health anxiety.

healthy beginnings

At 38, I was perfectly healthy. I rarely went the doctor, and took pride in filling out health questionnaires - ticking no in every box. 

I didn't pay my health much attention - focussing 100% of my energy on family - my lovely wife and two wonderful children, my successful marketing career, and my growing business.

Wake-up call

In a few short years, my father and father-in-law both died of serious illnesses, shortly after being diagnosed.

In September, 2016, I suffered a horrific health scare of my own. I thought I was about to die.

What began as a visit to the Emergency Room led to a vicious cycle of doctor visits, medical tests, fear, panic attacks and a constant feeling of held hostage by a barrage of unexplained physical symptoms.

It was burnt out, lost and incapable of enjoying life.

Finally, answers: Laying in bed one evening in November, 2017, sweating, my heart rate skyrocketed to 140 beats per minute, for no apparent reason.

At the Emergency Room, they ran a series of tests, which all came up negative. They kept asking questions about stress and anxiety. At first, I couldn't understand why. 

Then, it hit me: I was suffering from severe health anxiety (illness anxiety disorder, or hypochondria) - not the physical illness I feared.

In the weeks that followed, I read stories of hundreds of people who've suffered for years - some, even decades. I refused to accept this fate. 

Instead, I created a plan, put it into action, beginning my recovery, my way.

My Recovery

When I realized that health anxiety was not about the presence or absence of illness, but my psychological reaction to thoughts and bodily sensations, I knew that recovery was a process that requires focus and hard work.

I stopped hoping the outside world - doctors, tests, diagnoses and the illusive cure - for relief.

Instead, I looked inward, at my thoughts, behaviours and beliefs, and took consistent, meaningful action to create the circumstances conducive to my recovery.

My life began to change, faster than I ever thought possible.

My results after 60 days

I followed a crystal-clear plan, and took renlentless action, improving every area of my life.

I eliminated substantially all symptoms of anxiety.

I deepened relationships with family and loved ones.

I dramatically improved energy, mindfulness and focus.

I acquired a growth mindset, which I apply to everything in life.

I finally began to pursue my dreams.

I created HealthAnxiety.coach to teach you how to stop health anxiety using the exact strategies I applied to overcome health anxiety in just 60 days, and begin the healthy, fearless life I enjoy today.

I'm Not...

A health practitioner

I require an all-clear from your doctor - your green light to look inward (at yourself) not outward (for diagnoses or medications).

A psychologist

I integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) into a holistic, action-oriented recovery plan.

A Counselor

I won't dwell your past or your setbacks. I'll focus on the present so we can create your future.

Mental health professionals are an important part of your support system - but they're often not relatable.

Most haven't felt what you feel, or feared what you fear, because they haven't experienced and overcome an anxiety disorder themselves.

I saw the best results when I augmented my health practitioner's advice with a holistic action-based strategy based on the principles of both CBT and ACT.

I Am...

A coach

To help you learn, plan and take action to overcome health anxiety.

An accountability partner

To call you out, and help you find your way when you drift off course.

A friend

To listen, understand and relate.

I was challenged by moderate-to-severe health anxiety. You don't have to explain your symptoms and discomfort to me - I totally understand.

I integrated my health practitioner's advice into a repeatable, 4-stage recovery plan, and overcame health anxiety in just 60 days.

I’m a professionally-trained coach who’s passionate about healthy living and helping others achieve their goals.

Together, we'll tie everything together into a holistic, crystal-clear recovery plan to optimize every aspect of your life.
