Individual Counselling for Adults
"I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do."
- Brene Brown
Perfectionism and People Pleasing
Do you place so much pressure on yourself to achieve and do everything "perfectly?" Do you often procrastinate on those daunting tasks? Do you feel this need for everyone to like you and/or find yourself hypervigilant to others' moods?This is perfectionism and people pleasing - it can be exhausting and lead to burnout.
Do you find yourself struggling to quiet your busy mind? Difficulty managing those spiralling thoughts? Are you constantly worrying and thinking of those"what if" scenarios? This is anxiety and so many people struggle with it.
Are you in pain often? Have you been told by medical professionals that this pain is something that may not go away? Because of your pain is it hard to do the things that you find enjoyable, to find joy, and/or a moment of peace? Sometimes we need some support in finding our way back to a life that is aligned with our values.
Are you grieving the loss of a loved one? A miscarriage? A pet, job, or relationship? Grief can overwhelm you and lead to feelings of loneliness - like no one understands what you're going through. I understand and can help.
