In this Episode: Today we are covering an important subject – anxiety. Did you know that according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America in the US, 40 million people aged 18 and older – that’s about 18 percent of the population – has an anxiety disorder. So joining me to lovingly and respectfully discuss this topic is Rebecca Ching. Rebecca is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Lots of great resources mentioned at the end of this episode – everything will be listed at thegoodlifecoach.com/023. Rebecca is Certified in Internal Family Systems Therapist, a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator+Consultant (CDWF-C) (based on the research of Brené Brown), Certified EMDR Therapist+Consultant-in-Training and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) + iaedp™. She will discuss when anxiety can be beneficial and what it looks like when it accumulates and hits a tipping point so you know when to seek out help. We also discuss it through the lens of what my guests calls a culture of “never enough” which makes us question: “Am I doing enough? Have I achieved enough? Am I pretty enough? Am I good enough? The root being feeling of “Am I enough?” Perfectionism is a way for anxiety to play itself out and creates shame. Not being worthy and not feeling enough.
