    Getting Unstuck with Shira Gura – 080

    My guest today is Shira Gura, a well-being coach who's on a mission to create an emotionally healthy world. She talks about her first client -- herself -- and how she learned to recognize when she was "stuck." Eventually, her awareness and consistent daily journal practice led her to create a tool to help her get unstuck. Shira walks us through examples from her own life and how she's used her unSTUCK Method to get out of feeling negative emotions, such as resentment, disappointment, anger, and guilt. www.lessdramamoremama.com/080

    Disarming Your Defenses – 079

    Your brain is designed to protect you from painful thoughts and emotions by keeping them out of your conscious awareness. Sigmund Freud first identified nine psychological defense mechanisms, also called ego defenses, and many psychoanalysts have added more over time. Tune in to today's episode, where I talk about four common defense mechanisms that can impact your relationships, how to become more aware of them in your own life, and what to do the next time you feel defensive. www.lessdramamoremama.com/079

    Parenting with Curiosity – 076

    Parenting with Curiosity – 076

    If I asked you to choose the top three emotions you'd want to feel on a daily basis, what would they be? Happiness? Patience? Excitement? I'd like to suggest Curiosity. Curiosity is open and inviting. It doesn't judge or evaluate. It just notices what is. When you're curious, you have a genuine interest in the who, what, when, where, why, and how of things. And being curious often leads to other emotions, including happiness, patience, and excitement ;) Join me for today's episode where I share how to generate more curiosity in your parenting and in your life. www.lessdramamoremama.com/076

Eye-opening insights & strategies

I’ve benefitted so much from Pam’s wisdom & wait eagerly each week to learn great strategies & practical info on parenting - & navigating life in general - with less drama.
If only I had this info available to me years ago when beginning adult life & navigating parenthood! However, better late than never ;)
Pam shares her messages in an engaging, concise, nonjudgemental & relatable manner.
I’ve also had the pleasure of receiving her insights - one on one - during a free mini-session with her. She’s a fabulous coach!

Already seeing improvement!

I just listened to 3 of the episodes last night about a child’s 3 core needs and I started putting things into practice last night and already see a difference! I love that they are short too because I don’t have all that much time to listen with good attention. Thanks for the help!!
