Self-Love & Self-Care
A 6-week Personalised Course
When you love yourself
you make better choices.
What we resist persists
Most people reject a particular part of themselves. We want to get rid of specific unwanted habits, behaviours, emotions, addictions or physical features. How can we accept what we don’t like about ourselves? How can we love what we reject or even despise? That is the big question!
It is understandable that we don’t want our extra weight, illness, addiction, depression, divorce, unworthiness, anxiety…the list goes on and on. We hope to overcome our issue: work on it, get rid of it, drop it, forget it, let it go and one day be free. Considerable time goes into attempting to fix the problem – anything but accepting and embracing our unwanted part. Usually, our overall attitude is rejection. We are saying, ‘No, thank you.’
There is a different way: acceptance and kindness.
During our time together, we will explore:
- How do you treat yourself?
- What aspects of yourself do you reject or judge?
- What compromises do you make based on unworthiness?
- How does your lack of self-worth affect your life?
- Can you be kind towards the part in you that has little self-worth?
I aim to guide you gently towards a different attitude towards yourself, your problems and your so-called ‘imperfections’. Acceptance will open the door to a new relaxed you that is stronger, wiser and a whole lot freer.
This can be an intense experience and can bring up our past and even our early childhood. Most of our conditioning and programming took place in those first years of our lives. While this process is deep, it can also be delightful, funny and creative. Humour and creativity are just as much part of the healing process as profound awareness-altering realisations.
During our six weeks together, we will meet for six 90-minute sessions (online via Zoom). In between sessions, I will send you personalised exercises and homework. Together we will set the pace of the 6-week course, so you won’t feel overwhelmed.
Each new session will build on the one before, and on the homework you did. Completing your homework and a certain amount of journaling is essential for this process. Don’t worry if you are not a big writer – journaling can take the shape of notes, lists, drawing, poetry or even songwriting. We will work with a range of different techniques. Self-inquiry will be a significant part of the process, as well as other therapeutic approaches.
