    How can you learn to communicate better in your relationships?
    In this episode of the 'How to Love Successfully' podcast, host Dr. Mari Kovanen speaks to Communication Expert, Amira Mansour. 
     
    Together, they delve into the importance of effective and conscious communication in shaping successful relationships. 
     
    Amira discusses her journey from experiencing a long, unhealthy relationship and a challenging corporate career to mastering the art of communication, both personally and professionally. She shares actionable tips on identifying authentic communication styles, developing self-awareness, and handling conflicts. 
     
    She suggests focusing on one relationship at a time to improve communication skills gradually. Tune in to learn more about taking control of personal and professional conversations and creating more fulfilling relationships.
     
    Amira’s bio:
     
    Amira aka The Communication Expert works with
    companies and individuals to help them communicate
    with themselves. This in turn enables them to get the
    best out of their relationships. She’s a believer that
    communication is the essence of understanding who you
    are and creating relationships where you feel heard and
    understood makes you feel happier on a deeper internal
    level. 
     
    Communicating is something we’re all doing all the
    time, whether we realise it or not. However, it’s not
    always something we’ve learnt how to do well.
     
    Through a combination of 12 years in the corporate
    world, working with a diverse range of people and her
    own experiences, she’ll help you learn to understand the
    power of your internal dialogue, how this impacts your
    work, friendships, relationships and support you to get
    the promotion you want, the career you’re dreaming of,
    be the business leader you desire, the partner you’ve visualised, to live life on your terms honouring who you were always meant to be.
     
    Whether it’s through her monthly masterclasses, podcast
    or 1:1 coaching program, Amira will help you understand
    your values, your motivations and your shadow self to
    not only be able to stop overthinking what you, but to say
    what you mean and communicate as your authentic self.
    She’ll guide to be able to resolve the conflict in your life,
    assert your boundaries and master the hard
    conversations so you get out of the negative spiral of self
    talk and communicate with confidence and ease in every
    area of your life!

    Season 3, Episode 9 -Overcoming your dating anxiety
    In this episode of 'How to Love Successfully', host Dr. Mari Kovanen, a registered psychologist and conscious dating coach, discusses how to tackle dating anxiety faced by many women. 
    Dr. Mari talks about the typical signs of dating anxiety, its impact on life and relationships, and the importance of dealing with it. 
    With the help of various therapeutic tools, she suggests self-love practices as a starting point, focusing on feeling good about oneself, understanding feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, practicing mindfulness, and cultivating self-compassion. Dr. Mari also emphasizes building a healthy self-esteem that is not tied to external factors. 
    She also talks about how reprocessing key negative experiences that are directly linked to dating related situations can be reprocessed through EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).
    It is a psychological tool Dr Mari is trained in and it is borrowed from trauma therapy and can significantly help in reducing dating anxiety. This way you can be more open to letting love and find the right relationship for you.

She suggests strategies like volunteering, maintaining a busy social calendar, and practicing self-love to mitigate loneliness or discomfort.
