Mindfulness and meditation help you to live in the moment that is happening right now.


Does this sound familiar?

 

You were speaking to your partner about something you felt

was important and they were looking at their phone. You felt

they werenít paying attention and felt frustrated. Youíve mentioned

it before but it continues to happen and you continue to feel

frustrated. It negatively impacts your relationship.


You wake up your kids for school in the morning and

they usually donít get up until the last minute. The morning feels

rushed and you continue to feel frustrated each morning.

You tend to start your day feeling stressed. You feel annoyed

with your kids most mornings and it is negatively impacting

your relationship with them.


Substitute parent, coworker, neighbor... you get the idea. We're talking

about repeating scenarios that can frustrate and begin to create tension

in relationships.


Mindfulness and meditation work together to keep you in the moment.

These practices challenge you to notice your feelings and thoughts but not

To get caught up in them. It helps you to settle your mind so that you can

be more clear thinking and creative. It can help you to move out of

Groundhog Day (remember the movie?) where the same scenario repeats

each day to a place where you choose new ways to think and behave.

You have the opportunity to create a brand new day each day.


 

                                                                   

 





Social Anxiety Coaching Group

Please register prior to session,  $30 per session, Ages 18+

Register here.


Wednesday, January 9, January 23,    10-11am

Wednesday, February 6, February 20,   5 - 6pm

Wednesday, March 6, March 20,  10-11am



I work with many clients who want to develop more comfort in a variety of social situations. It might be speaking to coworkers at their new job, going to a meet up, making small talk in the lunch room, dating.


You may have social anxiety, shyness, or just limited experience in social settings. We'll look at how to start a conversation, identify appropriate topics, how to join in a conversation, how to share about yourself, deepen conversations.


There's often a tendency to compare yourself to others or to judge your performance so we also practice skills to keep you focused on the conversation. Anxiety usually kicks up in these situations so we'll practice skills to reduce anxiety, and to also monitor your self talk, which can tend to be negative.


You'll  leave with plenty of  ideas to use. The more you practice the more you will increase your self-confidence and push yourself out of your comfort zone.


I created this group because it is helpful to practice in as realistic a setting as possible. Working with others may increase your anxiety so we'll practice stress reduction skills in the moment. You will have an opportunity to talk to others and practice how to begin conversations, share about yourself.


It's an atmosphere of positivity and skill building. You have an opportunity to talk about the interactions or situations where you get stuck and we will identify new strategies to try. Our focus will be on reducing anxiety, exploring social situations where you want to increase your interactions, and identifying the appropriate skills and strategies.


Begin to create your best life now!!
