Ep. 3: Overcoming Over-Giver Syndrome with Lisa


If you’re a woman who has spent her life doing for others, and feels guilty putting yourself first then today’s episode will strike a chord. 

Also, if you’re at a crossroads and you feel ready to move into the next phase of your life, but you don’t know how because you’re so used to doing everything for everyone else then I KNOW you will get a lot of golden nuggets from my coaching session with Lisa.

Lisa has recently decided to retire from her long career in healthcare and wants to begin a journey to find deeper connection with her body, mind, and soul. She has been dedicated to her career for most of her life, and as a result has never focused on herself or her health. 

Now that she is soon to be retired, she wants to begin a journey of self-care and self-discovery, where she finally puts herself first and decides what she wants out of life.

The problem is, Lisa fears that putting herself first and taking care of herself will be perceived as selfish. She also worries that she will lose her friendships. This either/or mindset keeps her stuck in a vicious cycle of putting everyone else first. 

During the episode we uncover why Lisa has been living her life this way, and how she can navigate her fears around other people judging her including her own self-care so that she can really THRIVE in this next phase of her life.

I think you will be surprised at what we uncover that is behind Lisa’s real reasons for NOT taking care of her own well-being.
