About the book

Nicola Bird experienced anxiety and panic attacks for over twenty years, at some points so badly that she couldn’t leave her house for weeks at a time.

No one knew. To the outside world she was a high-performer: high academic grades, running her own successful business, living all around the world and happily married with three beautiful children.

But inside she was full of fear and on the verge of panic a huge amount of the time.

She tried everything, including CBT, NLP, medication, yoga and psychiatric counselling in an attempt to fix herself but nothing seemed to have a lasting impact.

Then she stumbled across a completely different way of understanding how human beings work that transformed her relationship with anxiety forever. 

In A Little Peace of Mind, Nicola shares with you just what it was that made such a profound difference so that you too can experience freedom from trying to cope with the stress and fear that can seem to rule our lives. 

At the heart of this you’ll uncover the peace of mind that has been eluding you all this time.

“In A Little Peace of Mind – Freedom From Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Nicola Bird has vividly shared her personal experience of many years of severe anxiety and panic attacks. More importantly, she has shared her journey of incremental transition from anxiety and panic to more joy, love, peace and ease in her life. In presenting how her her insights into the Three Universal Principles uncovered by Sydney Banks, have been instrumental in her journey, she is pointing to the universality of innate mental well being that can never be damaged but only obscured by our innocent misuse of the power and gift of Thought. This book will awaken renewed hope in many whose hope has waned and will be a vehicle of insight to many that there label/diagnosis has been but a description of, WHERE they are in their spiritual/psychological understanding and that it has had nothing to do with WHO they are. Nicola clearly reminds us that , “there is always hope, because there is always health”. Reading this book will bring significant value for all who desire a gentler experience and greater resilience in the face of life’s challenges.”

“This book is a game changer. A radically different understanding of both anxiety and wellbeing that offers the real potential to be on a completely different footing. A new perspective that diffuses anxiety and frees us to have a less restricted experience of wellbeing. This perspective shifts the advantage firmly towards human beings in the ongoing struggle for wellbeing in the face of anxiety. I believe it will ultimately bring that long-fought struggle to an end.”

“I really appreciate how Nicola weaves in her personal experiences with anxiety, stories of her clients and the powerful insights that have transformed their lives. This book is an inspiring look at our humanness. Nicola beautifully illustrates that anxiety is not a life sentence and with a simple understanding we can learn to experience more of our health regardless of the current state of our thinking. And as a result have a new level of confidence in our ability to move through our lives with more ease; connected to our well-being.”

“I’ve known Nicola for many years as both a friend and colleague and it’s been a delight to watch her world expand as the understanding that she shares in A Little Peace Of Mind came to life within her. This is not a self help book of tools and techniques and “how to’s”. It’s a book that will humorously and compassionately change your understanding of what anxiety really is. And as your understanding of it begins to shift, you’ll find yourself effortlessly dropping into a place of peace. It was actually there all along, but this book will help you see that you were just innocently looking in the wrong place for it.”

“In her down to earth and laugh out loud style, Nic explores the fundamental shift in understanding that dissolved the limits on her own life and the lives of thousands of clients. She is an exceptional force of honesty and love and her teaching and writing are a gift to us all.”
