    Dealing with Social Anxiety as a Highly Sensitive Person

    Dealing with Social Anxiety as a Highly Sensitive Person

    Social anxiety is one of the most debilitating experiences a person can have. From fears in going to a social event, feeling shame after leaving a party or even feeling unable to show up within a professional capacity which later impacts on your success and self belief.
    In todays episode, host Rachel Boswell talks about how to start shifting your perception of what’s really going on when feeling that you can’t be the bold and flamboyant person you think you should be when entering a room. And that you should be responding to your own needs when navigating social settings.
    Rachel shares that being a Highly Sensitive Person, the need to take your time to ‘Socially Scan’ before feeling confident to enter into conversations with people, is perhaps a necessary in managing overwhelm & overstimulation.

    How to Free Yourself From Perfectionism

    How to Free Yourself From Perfectionism

    Perfectionism isn’t always about being highly motivated, focus and engaged on achieving success.
    Nope! There’s another type of perfectionism that keeps you small. Holds you back from being able to achieve what you want – not just in your business, but in your life too.
    Not to mention that Highly Sensitive People can burnout easily from trying to work all hours under the sun to achieve success and fulfilment in life.
    And so often those two things go hand in hand. You are trying to be the highly motivated, focused and engaged person. But your Highly Sensitive traits won’t let you.
    This will then trigger your stress response and you won’t be productive and practice, but overwhelmed, stress and anxious. And this is the perfect breeding ground for the type of perfectionism I’m talking about.
    This type of perfectionism can show up in so many ways, but the  most common themes are,
    Keeping your business projects in development mode Focusing too much on trying to make things perfect (behind the scenes) before going public with your offers. Using your drive for perfection on doing one thing that stops you from doing something else Holding yourself in high expectations and taking yourself too seriously Thinking that you should know everything or be able to do something without developing yourself first. So how can you rid these sabotaging perfectionist habits and feel more calm and motivated in your business?
    In this episode I talk about what perfectionism is and how it could be showing up in your business, and how you can start to uncover the cause of your perfectionism and create habits like adopting a growth mindset, approaching your learning in business with self compassion and connecting to and working from your comfort zone to cultivate natural confidence without fear and anxiety triggering your perfectionist habits.

    Who is Influencing Your Self Belief and Business Success?

    Who is Influencing Your Self Belief and Business Success?

    When you trust other people more than yourself, your business is going to suffer.
    So how do you start to feel empowered to follow your own intuition and judgement on what is right for you and your business?
    Being a Highly Sensitive Person means you have the ability to connect deeply with others. Your high empathy means you can provide mutual benefits within a relationship by being a kind and considerate person.
    But this trait can so easily lead you towards people pleasing, doubting yourself & needing that external validation because you think other people know best.
    In this episode I share that to start feeling more empowered to make decisions that serve you and your business, you don’t need to set hard and fast barriers. You just need to choose who is influencing you, and who in your life can help you achieve what you are working towards.
    Its not about thinking that someone is negative, but that they don’t necessarily help the outcome you are working towards. And you have the choice in how you respond to that.
    You can see them as having other strengths that help you and that what you are needing from a relationship, you can gain somewhere else.
    This allows you to create more deep and meaningful relationships that feel aligned, that help you grow ...and your business too.

    How People Pleasing is Holding You Back in Business (and how to break free)

    How People Pleasing is Holding You Back in Business (and how to break free)

    Wish you could say no without the impending guilt?
    Do you get frustrated with yourself because you hate letting people down?
    Feel you can’t manage your boundaries or be confident to get out there and do the things you want to do – because you’re constantly wondering what other people think?!
    Being a Highly Sensitive Person means that you are naturally a kind, thoughtful and agreeable person. And you feel deeply that its important to help people, be supportive and create deep and meaningful connections.
    But what happens when you loose sight of yourself in those situations and allow those happy moments with people to turn into fear driven experiences where you worry about disappointing others or being rejected.
    And worse, it stopping you from stepping out and being visible and making your business a success.
    In todays episode, I talk about the biggest hurdle that I have had to overcome in creating a successful business.
    How to stop people pleasing!
    I share in depth why you start to people please in the first place, why its not just about saying no, and how you can start to peel away the layers of your own people pleasing behaviours and start to put yourself first (without needing to let go of helping others).

Jan from the Garden Inn ,

An absorbing and insightful podcast!

Rachel gives a fascinating insight into how some simple strategies can help overcome self imposed obstacles to all those trying to find a calm and successful life balance, in both personal life and business. She presents a range of very interesting and thought provoking ideas, drawing on both science and personal experience, in order to help empower others to recognise their own self-worth and abilities. I found myself recognising many of the negative traits that she illuminates as common routes to self sabotage, and I very much look forward to listening to further episodes from both Rachel and other professionals for whom she is providing a platform.
