...We can't practice compassion with others if we can't treat ourselves kindly
- Brené Brown
Life can be complicated and messy. `We find ourselves second guessing our decisions because we’re afraid to make a mistake or let someone down. We become anxious and start feeling we have little to no control over the situation. Our self-doubt becomes intense and that critical inner voice just gets louder and louder. Many times, we try to buffer these difficult feelings by overindulging in food, substances, spending, television or anything else that gives us some relief in the moment. Although we do these things to feel better, it doesn’t take long before we realize that we only feel worse. Then one day, we say to ourselves ‘Something has to give. I can’t live like this anymore but I have no idea what to do or where to start.’ I can help you with that.
Whether you’re struggling with life stressors, weight and food issues, general life direction, relationship issues or something else, I am here to guide and support you in finding the answers that were within you all along. Sometimes it just takes changing how you think about a problem or situation to give you a new perspective. I can help you develop strategies to quiet that inner critic, reduce self-defeating behaviours and help you learn to balance your own needs while still meeting the needs of others. The bottom line is- I can support you in learning to thrive, not just survive.
