The Hamster Wheel of Life
Managing the stress of a career, relationships, and children can be challenging and leaves you on the hamster wheel of life. Momprenuers, small business owners, and women who return to their careers after having children struggle in finding healthy boundaries at home and in the workplace. You often feel guilt and shame for saying no to someone because your quiet, internal thoughts say you have to do it all, which results in over-commitment, exhaustion, and overwhelm.
Often times you get so busy in a routine that you are only going through the motions- you’re reacting to what is going on around you, forgetting to listen to what you need as an person, and forgetting to take care of yourself. Feeling helpless and powerless leaves you stumbling through life- that’s not living and it’s certainly not the life you imagined for yourself or loved ones! Learning how to take better care of yourself will greatly improve your quality of life because you’ll be systematically reducing decision and compassion fatigue across your environments.
Women in Leadership, Expats, and Diplomats
If you are in a leadership position serving overseas as a diplomat or expat you need the support, comfort, and understanding that can only occur from those in your home country. You are faced with time change, culture shock, changes in work environments, and you’ve had a serious shake-up and loss of relationships in your life. If you are a woman serving in leadership, or a diplomatic or expat role, you are faced with additional layers to overcome. This can be really painful, hard, and lonely. Getting support from online counseling can truly help you navigate these waters.
Between work, personal relationships, and family life, just finding the time to get to a therapy session can cause enough stress that you need, well, therapy. This particular type of counseling helps clients feel more relaxed and the worry about judgment falls away- my clients have made huge leaps forward due to online counseling.
