Free yourself from anxiety and people pleasing
I understand what it feels like to be sensitive, overwhelmed and to want more meaning and purpose in a world that feels like people are just going through the motions. And this gets even more difficult when you’re trying to be kind to your friend or your boss who doesn’t get what it’s like to be sensitive.
Do you have a need to be liked and accepted?
Do you sometimes end up in perfectionism?
When you’re constantly worried about upsetting your mom, your boss, your friend – the anxiety you feel as a sensitive woman can be crippling.
I understand what it feels like to be constantly worried about making a mistake and upsetting my friends, family members and colleagues. That why I finally reached out for help and started getting relief through an emotional body work modality called Core Energetics.
I lived for years as a sensitive perfectionist with anxiety coursing through my veins and through Core Energetics sessions I began to find the root cause of why I’m so anxious and take steps to drastically reduce my suffering.
This work made such a big impact on my life, I decided to go back to school and get certified because I know that it works. And now going into my 4th and final year of my studies I love to support anxious women in Toronto to heal as a student Core Energetics practitioner.
Core Energetics sessions can help you:
- Learn to ride the waves of anxiety
- Increase your energy
- Bring of your gifts as a sensitive woman forward
- And heal from trauma
So how did I end up here?
My life first really fell apart when I was 24. I’d graduated from university and landed my dream job working with marginalized youth. But when I made a mistake with one of the youth I was working with, I wasn’t able to recover.
My boss had forgiven me and moved on and I was on the path of rebuilding trust with the youth but I couldn’t get over it. I felt nervous I would make a big mistake again. I was so paralyzed with fear of messing up it would take me over a week to write and send one email.
It was a painful situation to be in. Even once the youth seemed to have moved on completely, I was still beating myself up, caught in this cycle of shame and I didn’t know how to get out. Eventually I quit my dream job because I didn’t know what else to do.
I moved to Yasodhara Ashram, a yoga retreat and study centre in the mountains of British Columbia and started my healing journey there. I practiced yoga and meditation every day and started to heal. I lived there for over 2 years, became certified as a yoga teacher and when I left and moved to Toronto I was much stronger and much more at peace.
But that wasn’t the end for me. Even though I was in a better place I would still get crippled by perfectionism and shame when it came to making mistakes and disappointing my boss, my colleagues or my friends.
It was then that I discovered Core Energetics through a friend and started taking workshops. I joined a weekly group where we processed our emotions together. As soon as I walked into the studio for the first workshop I immediately felt at home and safe. I knew this was where I needed to be. And within a year of that first workshop, I’d enrolled at the Institute of Core Energetics where I get to learn from some of the most talented practitioners in the world and my personal healing journey continues.
Why do I do this work?
I’m an evangelist for this kind of work because of the impact it’s had on my life and the difference I’ve seen it make in the lives of friends and classmates. I actually ofen get teary eyed at school when I see someone having a breakthrough or when I’m working with a client and they have the courage to say something that’s terrifying for them because of how they were treated in the past.
If we work together, I’ll be 100% in on supporting you, challenging you (when necessary) and getting you a life where you can be more of your amazing sensitive talented self because you’re not constantly worried about what others are going to think of you.
My formal training includes:
– Upledger CranialSacral Therapy 1
– Kundalini & Dreams Teacher Training
– Yasodhara Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
– Core Energetics Training (in progress)
– Indigenous Cultural Competency Training
When I’m not geeking out on personal development, writing about my healing journey or working with clients I absolutely love to dance. I’ve been studying contact improv dance for 9 years and am now a teacher and dance every week. I’ve also recently started dipping my toes into other partner dances and my new obsession is bachata – a sensual partner dance from the Dominican Republic.
If you’ve suffered from the people pleasing and the painful anxiety that comes with it, it’s time for you to break free. It’s time for you to have more fun and be more of your sensitive self and not be constantly worried about getting in trouble or what others will think of you.
