The BrightLife Center for The Rapid Relief of Shy Bladder Syndrome

BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, The BrightLife Center for The Rapid Relief of Shy Bladder Syndrome specializes in rapid, permanent, 100% drug-free eradication of Shy Bladder Syndrome and related challenges. On average, just 3 three-hour Accelerated Personal Breakthrough Coaching sessions over the course of about a week as part of our 90-Day Accelerated Personal Breakthrough Coaching program are required to help you achieve substantial or complete relief from your challenges with Shy Bladder Syndrome.

What Is Shy Bladder Syndrome*?

Shy Bladder Syndrome (SBS), "Bashful Bladder" (or Paruresis, as it is known in clinical circles) are all names given for a condition in which a person finds it difficult or impossible to relax enough to be able to urinate in public. In contrast to what might be a truly physiological condition (such as those involving inflammation of the male prostate gland) that actually physically impedes the flow of urine, SBS is a thoroughly non-physiological, non-obstructive form of urinary retention.

People who suffer from SBS have trouble initiating urine in the presence of others. More accurately, SBS is the fear of not being able to urinate without some or complete privacy, depending on the severity of the symptoms. This challenge can interfere with a person's quality of life in a number of significant areas. Such persons face difficulties ranging from work problems (when they might require to submit a urine analysis for drug testing) to traveling on long plane rides to every day social situations.

What Causes Shy Bladder Problems?

There are many questions still to be answered about the cause of this problem. SBS can afflict a toddler in preschool, a child in early or late adolescence, or even a person in mid to late adulthood. While some sufferers cannot point to any specific triggering incident, others believe their ailment was triggered by a traumatic incident that happened prior to or during adolescence including embarrassment by a parent, teasing by classmates or siblings, harassment in public bathrooms or sexual abuse. Although many children experience such incidents (e.g. being teased by peers while trying to use a public toilet or urinal), not everyone develops Shy Bladder Syndrome.

What Are The Standard Treatments for Shy Bladder Syndrome?

The most common form of treatment in the traditional medical/psychological community is a process known as graduated exposure therapy. This is a series of exercises wherein, typically in the presence of at least one fellow trainee, the patient is gradually trained to urinate in ever more difficult circumstances.

One of the potential problems with this form of treatment is that, in order to use exposure therapy in this way, a substantial buildup of urine is needed. This need is often accommodated by drinking plenty of fluids prior to the practice session — often as much as a quart about an hour before the practice session begins! Ostensibly, the idea behind this process is that the more intensely the patient feels the need to urinate, the more likely he'll be to find the resources to be able to do it. In this kind of program, as many as eight to twelve individual practice sessions are required before the client can be adequately trained.

In extreme cases, an even more difficult (and usually very painful) process called self-cathaterization may be suggested by the medical or psychological professional. Self-cathaterization is just what it sounds like it is; in cases of urgent need, a person has no choice but to endure the process of slowly inserting a catheter into his/her own urethra, so far, in fact, that the catheter reaches the bladder, and then, in desperation, the person is finally able to void.

There are individuals who have tried exposure therapy and not experienced the results they were hoping for. Others have experienced moderate results using exposure therapy, but believe they require to heal the original setting trauma before they can be completely cured. Still others prefer to create their change in a quicker, less potentially embarrassing and more direct way than can be possible using standard exposure therapy.

For these people and more, BrightLife's powerful Accelerated Personal Change Technology™ is the answer.

Just What is "The BrightLife Method"? — And How Can You Be So Sure Your Program Will Work For Me?

Our powerful program is simple, typically quick and effective, and calls for absolutely NO physical pain or protracted forms of exposure therapy.

First of all, it's almost always useful to explore and then assist you, our client, to clear whatever residual psychological trauma might remain from earlier setting traumatic events in your life (if such events are present for you). The result is that you'll be entirely freed up from the learned behavioral responses that served to propagate your ongoing problems with SBS over the years. Having had its curative impact at the unconscious level, you'll now be completely free to create brand new associations to the notion of urinating in public.

We also realize that a fair percentage of people are entirely unaware of any traumatic events that might have been the source of the problem. Instead, such persons have often had these kinds of difficulties for so long, they've just come to believe on a gut level that they can't void in public — so they don't even try anymore.

But it's amazing how quickly a few positive reference experiences can torpedo a belief like that. Our clients certainly know what that's like. Listen to John C. tell you what his new-found freedom from Shy Bladder Syndrome has been like for him:

John C. isn't necessarily aware of any one single traumatic event that started his problem with Shy Bladder Syndrome. But he's aware that he'd had this problem most of his adult life, and that it limited him tremendously.

Like many with this kind of problem, John used to avoid socializing for fear of having the use a public restroom — for fear of possible ridicule if he were unable to "perform" according to what he believed were other people's expectations of him.

But that's all changed now. Listen to John tell you how amazingly different his life has felt since completing BrightLife's revolutionary 90-Day Accelerated Personal Breakthrough Program for Shy Bladder Syndrome.

(To protect John's identity, we have deleted the part of the audio in which he states his last name. We hope you will appreciate our commitment to protecting this gentleman's confidentiality.)

How Your Program Can Work So Well When All Else Has Failed?

Well, here's the thing: Let's acknowledge the fact that you are, in all likelihood, able to urinate perfectly comfortably in at least SOME places, or at some times — such as when no one is home, or where there's nobody around. Therefore, it's not a question of whether you can urinate in public or not — it's not a question of whether you have the physical ability to void your bladder. It's a question of how you stop yourself when you find yourself in one of your challenging contexts.

When we ask clients to tell us about their problem, they'll invariably insist to us that they "just can't do it" at certain times, or in certain places. As specialists in human behavior, we know that what they're really saying when they're saying they can't do it, is that they can do the process of not urinating in public. That is to say, they somehow stop themselves from being able to freely urinate in public by virtue of how they think about the act before and during the experience. Of course, none of this limiting thinking happens consciously; in fact, virtually all of this mental activity takes place quickly and automatically, like an old, outdated habit, at the unconscious level.

Yet, here's the good news: You see, it's not what's out there (e.g. the realization that you're in a public area) that causes, or "forces" you to respond one way or another to where you are, or what's going on there. Rather, it's how we each mentally interpret where we are or what's going on that makes all the difference — it's the meaning we each unconsciously assign to a given situation that determines how we feel about it, and therefore, how we respond to it. That's why some people can use public restrooms perfectly easily, while others cannot.

Thus, when we teach you to change the meaning you've been unconsciously assigning to (for example) being in a public restroom in the presence of others (e.g. "There's someone over there who's listening intently to what I'm doing while I'm in here, and that could lead to great embarrassment and pain"), and when you then learn to quickly and automatically create a new, far more empowering association, you can't help but feel — and therefore respond — far more resourcefully to the situation!

Our work is so effective, we have been featured on numerous local, national and even international print, radio and television, including our appearances in the Montreal Gazette, KNX 1070 NewsRadio in Los Angeles, Esquire Magazine, as well as the Discovery Health Channel's six-part television series, Things That Go Bump: Facing Our Fears. On that program, BrightLife Founder Robert Mantell assisted a client to eliminate an intense twenty-year phobia in just 15 minutes!

See the video here!

On a deeper level, our job is to teach you how to quickly, effectively and effortlessly access the very same resources we know you already must have inside you that allow you to urinate easily and comfortably at home — but this time, completely at will, regardless of context.

Using a powerful combination of mental repatterning tools that we call Imagination Creation™, we assist our clients to quickly, painlessly and permanently "rewire" your mental associations to the act of urinating in a public area. The result? The vast majority of our clients completely end their difficultly in urinating in public — usually after no more than just two to four short Accelerated Personal Breakthrough Coaching sessions!
