When you are feeling agitated, tired, sad, mad, or hurting all over your body…ask yourself... “What is REALLY going on?” The real answer may surprise you. You may just be tired, lonely, sick, feeling ashamed, or stretched to your limit. How often do you take out your frustrations on the wrong person, your closest target? How often do you make permanent decisions about a temporary situation? How many times have you quit a relationship, marriage, project, or job because your nerves and emotions were on edge? How many times have you said, “I’m done!” but you were really feeling anxiety, used, abused, invisible, physically exhausted, not heard, not appreciated, insecure, overwhelmed, scared, tired of trying, and simply needing a break?
Is the clock ticking and you feel like you are running out of time? Sometimes the question is…”Who’s the matter with you” not “WHAT is the matter with you?” Lingering, futile, toxic, unhappy, or manipulative relationships can tire you out. Are you an overhelper, co-dependent, fixer, or is your loyalty displaced?
People and circumstances may trigger your emotions which live right underneath your skin that you have pushed down, ignored, forgotten, or covered up with a mask and a smile or a drink or a new pair of shoes or a bag of chips. What is really going on with you?
If you cut your finger or broke your leg, you would seek immediate medical care. What do you do when you are emotionally bleeding, have a broken heart, become blind and lose sight of your purpose, your joy and optimism are on life support, or you fell down and fractured your faith, peace, and hope?
Unaddressed emotions can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression. The increase in cortisol that comes with stress can lead to changes in heart rate, motivation, and sleep.
Through my counseling/coaching style and weekly INNERversity virtual group sessions, I am able to support others to: . discover emotional sobriety and emotional freedom . improve their relationships . revive their self-worth and self-esteem
. learn how to identify, understand, sit, and modify the intensity of one’s emotions . reduce their vulnerability to toxic people or past shame
. soothe their body and regulate their emotions . learn how to navigate a crisis without numbing themselves
. activate one's faith and sense of purpose . cope with a crisis with acceptance, action, right thinking, faith, endurance, hope, and productive
coping skills. . move forward past their shame, procrastination, grief, abuse, setbacks, burnout, or ffaith fatigue.
. experience progress with their personal, spiritual, emotional, mental, and professional growth.
