Feeling stuck? This can help

I was working with a client today and what came up in her session was this feeling of being stuck.

This comes up a lot with my clients – this feeling of being hopeless and stuck and being unable to see a solution.

The more you stay stuck, the bigger and harder it becomes to take the first step forward.

Feeling helpless makes you anxious.  

It makes you feel like a victim and there’s no solution.

In fact, you can’t see solutions as you are frozen by fear (which is exactly why my client today said – “I feel frozen” – I hear this a lot).  

And in truth many of my clients when they come to see me often feel quite victimised in some way or another. 

To get unstuck – this can be helpful:

  • Validating all the feelings you have about the situation – what feelings are you experiencing? Anger, sadness, injustice, grief, despair, fear, envy or whatever else it might be.  
  • Getting super clear on what the fears are – what are you truly scared of? Getting found out? Judged? Upsetting someone? Being seen? Something else?
  • What are the stories your brain is creating about this situation? What’s the truth behind these stories?
  • What plans can you put in place to conquer this fear? Look at the solutions and practical steps forward.
  • What would you say to a friend or a someone else in your situation?
  • What evidence do you have that you’ve coped with worse?

If you’d like my help to get you unstuck – you can start today by accessing any one of my free resources.

Much love, Tricia xxx

The importance of having the courage to be disliked

One of the things I’ve learned over the years is I need to NOTICE how I’m feeling REGULARLY - not just in the moment. Such as - Sometimes I get stuck on my phone - I need to notice why I’m doing that - is it because I feel ‘frozen’, ‘overwhelmed’, ‘fed up’,...
