    108. Detox & Reclaim + Happy New Year!

    108. Detox & Reclaim + Happy New Year!

    Happy new year! 

    Today on the podcast, we will be talking about different kind of detox and how we can reclaim who we are for our own good. I'll provide examples and considerations for how to develop healthier thought patterns, emotional regulation techniques, and resources for cultivating security in yourself and in your relationships. 

    I will also unpack the different ways in which you can learn to mindfully heal by identifying what is holing you back or causing you distress, working through it, replacing with healthy habits, and reclaiming your life. I will apply this to different situations and relationships.

    Generally, it will be broken down into:

    Detoxing, Replacing, Reclaiming in...

    Your relationship with yourself

    Your relationships with others

    Your relationships "without others", as I call it - Where there is something unresolved/unhealed but the relationship is "over".



    Topics covered:

    - Identifying thoughts and feelings

    - Correcting unhelpful dialogue

    - Self-Compassion

    - Ego-based vs. Mindfulness-based or Activation/Reaction vs. Regulation/Response

    - Some boundary talk - particularly where our responsibility ends in conflict

    - Foundations of secure attachment

    - Offering yourself closure

    - Kindness, compassion, understanding, and even forgiveness do not mean excusing

    - Examples to help explore the different teachings

    - What we can learn from our responses

    - Tips for emotional regulation + soothing

    - Tips for healing + building secure attachment

    - Tips to answer one of the most the most popular question:

    "I'm doing all this work, and I'm scared that when I interact with certain people, I will lose my progress and security. What can I do?"

    106. Jealousy, Narcissism, and Being True to Yourself

    106. Jealousy, Narcissism, and Being True to Yourself

    This week on the podcast, we will be talking about jealousy as it tends to play out and what you can do to hold your own in these situations. We will also talk abut narcissism again and draw some links between jealousy and narcissism. 

    Jealousy is a really big topic and has been highly requested (thank you!). I also think it's very important because we can all have conflicting feelings sometimes, or compare ourselves to others, and even feel envious. This can lead us to being very discouraged and hard on ourselves. It becomes particularly challenging, however, when we give in to feelings of jealousy and behave in unhealthy ways. It can cause a lot of harm, and even abuse.

    Though I will be emphasising how to handle and heal from being on the receiving end of jealous behaviour, I will also discuss what can be done when feelings of jealousy arise.

    105. Narcissism: Signs, Red Flags, and Considerations for You

    This week on the podcast we will be talking about narcissism. I'll unpack Narcissism into 3 different types and give example of what this might look like in real life. Throughout the episode, I will draw comparisons between the different types, so that we can explore the differences and similarities, and what this could mean in relationships (family, romantic, etc.).

    Topics include:


    What narcissism is
    Different types of narcissism
    How to spot the signs
    Major red flags
    Gaslighting, exploitation, scapegoating, etc.
    When it starts to boarder on or even become a personality disorder
    The ways in which this can show up in relationships
    Considerations for handling these relationships and healing

    and more...

    This week on the podcast, I will be talking about REPAIR in different types of relationships. Understanding our behaviour and learning to correct what is not healthy for us and our loved ones is so important.

    Topics covered: 

    - What repair means

    - Our nervous system in relationships

    - Secure attachment and how to cultivate it

    - How repair in relationships can look

    - Repair with yourself

    - What you can do when repair in the relationship is not an option
