Compulsive helping prioritizes others' needs and feelings over one's own Does this sound like you?
You have a hard time feeling good about yourself no matter how much good you do - and you do a lot of good!
You are always seeking to make others happy, but are rarely happy yourself, and struggle with depression or anxiety.
You have been driven, hard-working, maybe even over-achieving, but you are tired of it and burnt out.
On the outside, it seems like you life is “together” - but you are not really living for you.
You are highly sensitive - particularly to the emotions of everyone else around you, but you have a hard time prioritizing and connecting to your own.
You are your own toughest critic.
On the Outside:
You are conscientious, insightful, a “do-gooder."
You are likely in a helping profession or a helping, people-developing role within any industry, paid or unpaid.
You are a people-pleaser.
What You Want To Gain:
You want to live life more authentically - to make more space for what you feel and what you need.
You want to make more room for all of you - your True Self - rather than only the parts of you that seem most likable, most useful, or most of service.
You want to learn how to be kinder to yourself, from the inside out, and to soften your harsh self-criticism.
We spend a lot of energy trying to control our emotions. In my practice, we work with them.
How I Can Help I use an evidence-based approach that helps you feel even your most painful feelings in order to heal them.
I can help you find out what you really need, and how to get those needs met. I can also help you to transform feelings that are no longer serving you. This will free you up so that you don’t have to use helping others as a proxy to getting your own needs met - you can be free to be a helper or people-developer because you want to be!
